New York Fall Fashion Week was in full swing this past February with exciting celebrity sightings and new fashion styles for fall.

One of the biggest trends taking over the runways this past week was military.   Designers celebrated the styles with big gold buttons, green colors and fancy sharp shoulders.

Alexander Wang was one of the military-happy designers showing off the look. In Wang’s show, models like Gisele Bundchen walked the runway in rough looking leather trench coats, slit skirts and knee high boots.

Tommy Hilfiger shared his sophisticated take on military through his womenswear and menswear collections, highlighting green colors in the form of jackets and bags along with dark double breasted trench coats and pea coats. Hilfiger also showcased trendy earth tones in his collections.

Jason Wu, who’s coming down from a successful special edition line at Target, showed off the hot military look at his show too. His models walked the runway sporting green, black and red colored looks featuring sharp shoulders, gold buttons, fur and big black belts.

Those designers that missed military included Christian Siriano and Jill Stuart, who seemed to go with a darker theme.

Siriano’s models were clad in black and white colors, sporting dark lips and middle parts in their hair. Jill Stuart on the other hand featured the color black mixed with floral prints, metal flower studs, cutouts and lots of sheer.

Besides military and feelings of black, fur was a major staple at the New York Fashion Week shows.

Rachel Roy took to this trend, adding fun colors and highlighting color blocking at the same time. Marc Jacobs had fun with fur. His Alice in Wonderland models walked the runway wearing giant fur hats. Michael Kors was also fur-happy. He used fur through fun clutches and boots.
