Continuing the virtual format with a largely digital schedule and a few in-person shows, New York Fashion Week is running for the second time in the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Pantone Forecast
The hue identified by the Pantone Color Institute, adobe is a warm caramel brown, and it is the dominant neutral tone for Fall 2021. The earthy colour is a popular choice with many designers specially for knitwear.

Red Is The New Black
Though it’s not the colour of this season, it’s simply hard to miss something as sexy and attractive as red. This colour trend could be spotted in everything from Prabal Gurung’s power suits and Casablanca’s gowns to even puffer jackets!
Prints don’t need much embellishment or ornamentation; they are a great fashion accessory in themselves. They look luxurious and cool at the same time. This season, we’ll see bright prints from Anna Sui, Ulla Johnson, and Studio 189’s collection, which will be difficult to ignore.
Power Suits Are In
Power suits this season are not only for work; they also work for parties and other events. Bright coloured, voluminous blazers worn with trousers or skirts are trending this season. Sara Battaglia and Jasun Wu launched versatile suits that are not only comfortable but also boost our confidence.
Holes have somehow become the new polka dots, at least with brands like Norma Kamali, Kim Shui Studio, Simon Miller and the Jonathan Simkhai collection. Whether you're a Bollywood A-lister or just someone who’s looking to spice up their fashion game, there has never been a better moment to consider revealing a little skin.
