New York Fashion Week Wrap-up: Top Trends for Fall 2014

While New York Fashion Week is over, the top trends for Fall 2014 are still buzzing. Although many fabulous styles graced the runways, three trends certainly left an impression. 

So many models were rocking fur at this year's NYFW. Keep an eye out for over-the-top furs; from classic dark furs, to graphic patterns, to colorful blends, this is one trend that you won't want to miss out on.

Graphic and Colorful Furs: Designers Altuzarra and Diane von Furstenberg utilized this style in a big way.

The influence of sportswear was another undeniable trend, with designers showing off their cool yet casual pieces. Incorporated into many designers' takes on sportswear are bold pops of color, boxy cuts, and exciting details that breathe life into the traditional look.

We are currently crushing REALLY hard on this drool-worthy dress by CAMEO, which embodies the drop waist perfectly. Here it is worn by style maven, blogger maidensydney.  She nails it with KILLER heels and an equally adorable pink clutch.

styling can be kept simple as the drop waist itself makes a big statement.  pair it with cute heels, sunnies, and a couple of your favorite jewels and you're good to go.
