It’s easy to declare that the dozens of shows that debuted on Day three had no distinct trend. And yet a closer look shows some similar notes, from home colors to bright whites to an overall celebration of mixed prints.  See our breakdown of trends from Day three of NYFW below.

Colors: Designers stepped over to the white side yesterday with several of them from Prabal Gurung to Charlotte Ronson to our favorite, Duro Olowu, showing pure white or ivory ensembles. Mixed prints also continued to dominate as designers delivered a gumbo of checkered, striped and floral graphics on the runway.

Shapes:  Just as yesterday, they continued to keep it loose. Skirts, pants and dresses, glided over the body and danced around the ankles in a relaxed, easy sway. Designers like Christian Siriano paired dramatic pleated skirts with slim t-shirts that played with volume. Alexander Wang continued this game with sports and biker inspired tops and sweaters which were bulky up top and paired over slim leggings.

Fabrics: Chiffons ruled the day yesterday! Designers used them in slouchy tops or in long gorgeous skirts. They slapped bold graphics on them or dipped them in a duo of colors for hombre effect. Denim also found its place in collections like Ronsons’ where it was played up and mixed in with other fabrics.

Where You’ll Wear Them: These clothes are strictly for play! From an easy sunday of brunches and lunches to relaxed evening get togethers, the majority of pieces yesterday were about having a good time, while looking good.
