Black and white all-over

Yes, black and white ruled this season. But some designers took a more colorful path with shades of coral, soft pastels and eye-popping neons. Also, loads of mint and oddly, variations on the traditionally winter hue of brown for an earthy take on spring. Here, a fresh take on black and white from the Jill Stuart spring 2014 New York Fashion Week show at Lincoln Center in Manhattan. (Sept. 7, 2013)(Credit: Bruce Gilbert)

New York Fashion Week's top trends for spring 2014

What's new on the runways for Spring 2014? "It's more of a continuation of what we've been seeing, but the good news is that you don't have to run out and buy a whole new wardrobe," says celebrity stylist and reality TV star Brad Goreski.

Sooooo, what to buy? Goreski suggests a skirt with a new silo (flippy, flared) paired with one of the season's ubiquitous crop tops or even a T-shirt. Avril Graham, Harper's Bazaar executive beauty and fashion editor, advises adding a bit of retro with mod, shorter body-skimming shifts, or '50s-style nipped waists along with an unstructured jacket. And, she says, while neutrals reigned supreme, "we're seeing some welcome bursts of colors."

As for the -- shudder -- crop-top trend? "Those who dare can certainly wear a midriff- baring top." But, says Graham, with finger pointed for emphasis, "You better be prepared to spend every, and I mean every, waking moment at the gym." Yikes.

Have a look at some of the trends for spring. -- Anne Bratskeir
