There’s always a ton of hype surrounding New York Fashion Week. We know you’re probably thinking, “Why should I care about designer runway clothes that only celebrities can afford?” Well, you are only partially right. While Fashion Week may seems like a place for high-society snobs to gather around and obsess about haute couture, it is also the place where trends are set for seasons to come. Whether it’s a color, a “look”, or a certain cut or silhouette, these trends will go from an Oscar De La Renta runway to the storefronts of H&M, Topshop, and GAP in no time… and that, chicas, is why we care.

Let’s face it, there are a ton of things in life that are more important than clothes, but us Latinas pride ourselves on looking good and having style. Just because we can’t always afford designer prices doesn’t mean we can’t stay on top of the trends. During Latina.com’s Fashion Week coverage over the next few days, we’ll bring you the most popular trends from the runway and some less expensive options along with DIY ideas for right now, so that you can stay ahead of the trends!
