New York’s latest fashion season came to a chilly close, a seasonally appropriate end to an otherwise uncomfortably hot and humid week.  The fashion-forward hit the city streets in head-to-toe black, boots, and layers of leather, despite the high temperatures. Trend-spotters and bloggers snapped away from both sidewalks and runways, documenting the most important time of year for style in America’s fashion capital. Black, white, and yellow was the oft-seen color palette for Spring/Summer 2014, while crop tops and drop-crotch pants proved to be trends with serious staying power. Leather was everywhere, yet again, along with revealing cutouts and and sheer layers. Metallic fabrics and accents popped up in gold, silver, and even purple, while stripes, spots, florals, and digital graphics dominated prints. So amongst hundreds of garments, what stood out? Here’s my Spring/Summer 2014 season roundup:
