Key Takeaways from NYFW Fall 2023

I know it has been already been over a month since the inception of NYFW FW 2023 but I am just know processing everything I saw…and trust me, there was a lot to take in. My days in the big city were better spent hopping from show to presentation to brand dinner and I was inundated with the best of the best. From L’Agence’s embellished outerwear to Hellessy’s gilded glamour inspired gowns, I had heart eyes throughout the entirety of my trip. So alas, it took me a few weeks to soak in all of the goodness that is to be Fall and Winter 2023 fashion trends. To recap my time in New York City for Fashion Week, I compiled my key takeaways from all the various events I went to so you can get the run down of what’s to come later this year.

FW 2023 Trend Takeaways


Saturated shades are key this fall. Gone are the days of just black outfits during the coldest months. Instead, bold hues and colorations are to be celebrated.


Volume is everything. Ruffles, tulle, layers, and more were definitely the presiding factor on this runway.

Kate Spade

Bring the fun back into fashion. During the Kate Spade NYFW Fall 2023 presentation, the first thing I noticed was the onslaught of mod graphics like large polka dots and abstracts.

Hervé Leger

This collection was all about texture. Many of the pieces were adorned with dramatic fringe that often fell to the floor. I can only imagine this will be adorning both fashion and accessories this fall.

Alice + Olivia

Punk rock will be omnipresent but in a more polished way. Moody pieces accented with heavy metal studs were definitely the key takeaway from Alice + Olivia’s NYFW Fall 2023 presentation. There was even a live demonstration of the skateboarders at the event!


Striking, beautiful and draped is how I would summarize the Hellessy collection from NYFW. There were a lot of details (think bows, fringe, and embellishments) added to minimal silhouettes.

Favorite NYFW Outfit

Although I was freezing taking these photos, I absolutely adored everything about this outfit. L’Agence was kind enough to dress me and I opted for a tailored jumpsuit. I felt that this look perfectly encapsulated my sense of style – classic and timeless with a hit of trend. You can just as easily recreate the outfit with a two-piece set (linked similar styles below).


And that’s a wrap on NYFW Fall 2023! Stay tuned for my recap of MFW and PFW.
