6 Instagram Trends That Sprung Up in New York City

Yes, New York Fashion Week is about finding out what some of our favorite designers have been up to over the last season, catching up with old friends, and admiring the street style set, but it's also about getting the freshest content to share on all of our social channels. (With everyone's phones basically glued to their hands, it's safe to assume we'll see similar shots pop up in our Instagram feeds.)

Influencers, It girls, editors, and celebrities snapped their little hearts out, and whether they realized it or not, they created six new fashionable Instagram trends along the way. In case your IG feed was a bit too runway-heavy over the past seven days, let us give you the filtered lowdown on the cool new Instagram trends fashion girls are posting nonstop. Get ready for everything from outfit trends, table trends (read on to get the reference), photo trends, and more. 

Anything Sheer

Nipples and undergarments alike were out to play this NYFW, as influencers and It girls showed no shame in getting a little more personal with their outfits. The sheer trend was worn tastefully across the board, ultimately encouraging us to take the trend for a test-drive before it's too late.

Massive Hair Clips

Hair clips have been having a major moment, but if Instagram taught us anything over the past seven days, it's that the bigger the clip, the better the 'gram.

Shoe Shots

Editors and influencers clearly took a liking to showing off not only their shoes but the shoes of their stylish fashion gang as well. If you're lucky, in just one Instagram shot, you can see every major fall shoe trend in the book.

Harling Ross from Man Repeller said it best: "Breakfast buffets are the new street style." Designer after designer presented a tablescape so Instagrammable that attendees didn't even want to indulge in the confections atop—at least not before snapping a photo or 12.

Crystalized Party Poses

Apparently it wasn't a NYFW party unless you wore crystals and Instagrammed about it. Now this is a fashion rule we can gladly get behind. After all, what's the point of getting dressed up if you didn't post about it, right? Or wrong? Food for thought.

Heritage Bags

Fashion girls clung to their heritage designer bags and Instagrammed their love for the beloved accessory it for proof. Old-school logos, new shapes, and fresh styling took center stage as we saw a huge resurgence of the designer handbags we all know and love.
