Biggest Trend Takeaways from September NYFW 2023

Greetings from New York City! I am here for none other than NYFW 2023. This has certainly been a busy few days that have had me running around the city like a mad woman – but I am living for the chaos of it all. Hopping from runway show to event to after party has been nothing short of exhilarating. Not to mention, it is providing me with so much inspiration in terms of fashion and beauty with the ongoing shows and the endless amount of street style.  Needless to say, I have been soaking it all in and taking notes on what trends I want to incorporate into my wardrobe now and into the next spring season. For those who have not been keeping up with the ins-and-outs of one of the busiest fashion weeks here in the states, do not worry! I wanted to document all the best takeaways from the September NYFW 2023 right here in this blog post. Let’s get into it.

Biggest Trend Takeaways from September NYFW 2023

fiery red pantone - nyfw 2023 trends

Fiery Red

One of the most notable trends of NYFW 2023 was the Pantone red (specifically people are calling out fiery red). This shade certainly packs a punch and it is such a vivacious, lively color that was on everything from gowns to more casual pieces. Since red is inherently seen as a more sultry color, I definitely could sense that designers were playing this aspect up. Get a head start and shop some fiery red pieces below.

Shimmer & Shine

We are still riding out post-pandemic vibes with avant-garde style and dopamine dressing being at the forefront of many of the NYFW 2023 trends. One thing that caught my eye (quite literally) were the continued use of metallics in a variety of colors and fabrications. Sequins were everywhere I turned and I could immediately see a glimpse into fall and winter nightlife dressing.  Shimmer and shine themed dresses, crop tops, outerwear, accessories and more are all on everyone’s go-get list.


NYFW 2023 - Proenza Schouler texture trend

Texture in All Forms

A variety of designers were also relying on unique texture elements to help their clothings pop off the runway. The upcoming Spring Summer season will be an onslaught of natural fabrications and organic weaves that will be taking the form of dresses, cover ups, and more. Think crochet, fringe, ruffles, and more. As Proenza Schouler demonstrates above with their matching crochet set (modeled by Kendal Jenner), the see-through trend will continue to conspire now and into the foreseeable future. Start early and shop fall adaptions of this textured trend below.

Bold Neons (Clothing & Beauty)

In addition to just fiery red, there will be a push for other, brighter hues. As we know, this bright color trend is actually forecasted to pick up for the current fall season and it looks like we can expect this to continue into the next few seasons too. One thing I wanted to note from this current NYFW is that not only were saturated hues on the clothing that walked down the runway, but it also translated into the beauty looks too. Highly pigmented shadows were swept across many of the models eyelids to add a pop of color to either accent their matching bold look or to act as the only pop of color.

Glass Skin

The final trend I wanted to report back from NYFW 2023 is actually another beauty look. This time, many of the luxe labels were highlighting the skin. Dubbed the glass skin trend, there was a huge push for fresher, hydrated skin paired with more natural makeup. Personally, this beauty trend resonated with me because I am all for clear skin and that signature glazed donut effect. Do yourself and your skin a favor by getting on board this trend now. I linked some dewy serums, primers, and finishing sprays to help you achieve the look (even on your bad skin days).


Let me know which of these NYFW 2023 trends you are most excited for!
