Asymmetric hemlines, bold prints, bright colors and even (gasp!) sneakers. These spring looks took best in show at NYC Fashion Week.

Mullet Skirts
The mullet hairdo— all business in
the front, party in the back—is still
a style don’t. But the ’80s-retro
mullet skirt—short in the front
and long in the back—has be-
come a major style do. Born on
the Alexander McQueen runways
last year, mullet skirts were the toast of
Fashion Week last month. Now showing
up at mass retailers like Zara and Asos,
the silhouette is undeniably versatile.
“I’m really short, so it’s a good compro-
mise to show off a bit of leg,” says NYU
student Sarah Ryder in a bronzed
Max Azria number that morphs mini
into maxi (top right).

Sporty Spice
This season, Fashion Week-ers earned their
varsity letters, turning up in baseball caps,
letterman jackets and hightop sneakers with
hidden wedges. “I like mixing up the sporty
with tailored sharp pieces,” says Ramya Gian-
gola (right), who runs luxury fashion consult-
ing company Gogoluxe. “That juxtaposition
is key.” With Big Apple sports teams scoring
big lately, the timing for the haute uniform
look couldn’t be better.

Flower Power
Stylistas hit the petal on their
looks, mixing winter blooms into
suits, tops and skirts. And the
look that’s coming up roses this
season: floral pants. “I love wear-
ing florals,” says Canadian writer
Niki Blasina (left) in an Asos
floral pantsuit. “Even though I
look like Hillary Clinton on hal-
lucinogens,” she jokes. H&M, Jil
Sander and J.Crew are all stock-
ing botanic trousers, so get ready to
take a walk in a garden this spring.

“I’ve never had one

attention,” says Meg
Moore (left).
Bold Bags
The neon satchel was the bag of choice for
a clutch of top editors during September’s
shows, but by February the colorful pops had
proliferated. “I came in September and saw a girl
who had one,” says Chicago Sun Times editor
Meg Moore (left), pointing to her hot pink
Cambridge satchel. “I ordered it right after.” Most
chose to pair the boldly hued purses with all-
black ensembles, but not Katherine Bruss (above
center), who owns a boutique in Hamburg. She
proudly showed off an orange Pucci bag with a
striped fur from The Row. “I always like to mix
lots of colors. It looks fresh,” she says.

Voluminous wide-leg
pants, so big they
could masquerade
as skirts, are the
trousers of choice
this season. “I wear
size 2, but these are
12,” admits writer
Maria DeNardo, 27
(bottom left). “I had
them tailored so they
would fit perfectly,”
she adds. Handbag
designer Emily
Gellis (right) teamed
flowing Zara pants
with a tweed blazer.
“It’s always good to
have a chic outfit and
be comfortable at
the same time,” says
Gellis, 25. “And they
hide everything.”
