From strapped-up to sequined and see-through, NYFW’s Fall Winter collections debuted the top fashion and beauty trends to keep an eye on in 2022 and beyond.
To toast to NYFW’s hottest and most talked-about looks of the seasons, we’ve rounded up our favorite tribute cocktails that you can accessorize alongside your favorite fits this year.
Cheers to the most-talented style visionaries in the industry!
This eye-catching, baby doll velvet dress from Ulla Johnson gives off major fun-in-the-sun, floral vibes. So, naturally, its cocktail complement is the St~Germain Margarita, a riff on the most famous warm-weather concoction with a dash of elderflower from St~Germain, adding notes of pear, honeysuckle, and citrus.
1 oz St~Germain Elderflower Liqueur
1 ½ oz PATRÓN Silver Tequila
¾ oz fresh lime juice
Add all ingredients into a shaker and shake. Pour over ice in a rocks glass and rim with salt, if desired!
Love to hate her or hate to love her, no one can deny Julia Fox is riding the media wave of the century and looking quite stunning while doing so. Seen here sporting cut-outs, high hemlines, and (her signature) bold eye for LaQuan Smith, Fox made her runway debut this season with flawless elegance (and a revenge dress - some might say?). To pair alongside this Bond-girl look, the 50:50 Martini is a sophisticated, sexy serve featuring Noilly Prat Extra Dry - Bond’s favorite!
1.5 parts Noilly Prat Extra Dry Vermouth
1.5 parts Bombay Sapphire Gin
Lemon twist (natural zest as sharp cut)
In a shaker, pour the ingredients over cubed ice and shake well to chill [never stirred, of course]. Strain into a frozen martini glass and garnish with a zest of fresh lemon.
As we saw on the runways this season, sheer fabrics and straps/ties are going to be a major trend in 2022. This barely-there slip-on dress from Acne Studios checks all the right boxes and was made for sultry dancing, while sipping your favorite cocktail. Cue the ‘Double Fashioned’ - made with chocolate bitters, orange, and Dewar’s whisky, this vibrant tipple is perfect to sport alongside this flowy look (even with the Bo-Peep headpiece).
2 oz Dewar’s 15-Year-Old Whisky
¼ oz Orgeat Syrup/Simple Syrup
2-3 Dashes Dewar’s Dugan and Dame Chocolate Bitters
Garnish: lemon twist, orange twist
Fill the included ice cube mold with water and freeze beforehand. Pour 2 oz Dewar’s 15-Year-Old, 0.25 oz orgeat or simple syrup, and 2-3 dashes Dewar’s Dungan and Dame Chocolate Bitters into a rocks glass over an ice cube. Stir until chilled then finish with an orange and lemon twist. Pair it with the dark chocolate sea salt bar for an indulgent combo.
Feeling rosey? This silk stunner from Ulla Johnson’s FW collection is saturated with flowers and brilliant hues of red, blue, and yellow, setting the standard for floral frocks in the new year. Adorned with a single rose stem wrapped in a lime peel, ‘What’s the Tea, Rosarita? - made by acclaimed floral visionary, Maurice Harris - is the most compatible accouterment for this romantically-ruched garment.
1 oz PATRÓN Silver Tequila
1 oz St~Germain Elderflower Liqueur
¾ oz hibiscus tea
¾ oz beet juice
½ oz freshly squeezed lime juice
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add all ingredients and shake well, strain into a chilled coupe.
Christian Cowan’s Fall Winter 2022 collection had us all blind from technicolor sequin and nostalgic for the ’80s with blush all over makeup (tubular!). Though exorbitant amounts of blush and sequin are trends we can expect to see all year long, this pink feather moment pairs perfectly with the flamboyant and sparkling ‘St~Germain Sweetheart Spritz’.
1 ½ oz St~Germain Elderflower Liqueur
3 oz Pét-Nat Sparkling
2 drops Miracle Mile Yuzu Bitters
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the raspberries and then add the St~Germain, Sparkling Rosé, and bitters. Shake and pour into a Collins glass over ice. Top with club soda and garnish with fresh basil.
With its psychedelic stitching from head to toe, this structured romper from Altuzarra had us all freeing our inner flower child. Since a simple glass of champagne could never do the ‘spunk’ of this look justice, reach for the bold ‘Bramble 75,’ a bubbly serve with mind-bending notes of honey, raspberry, blackberry, and citrus.
1.5 oz Bombay Bramble Gin
¾ oz Lemon Juice
¾ oz Honey Syrup (3 parts honey to 1-part water)
Top with 4 oz of Martini and Rossi Prosecco
Garnish: Dehydrated Blackberry
Combine all ingredients except for the prosecco into your cocktail shaker. Give it a quick, hard shake with ice. Strain into your chilled glass and top with 4 oz of prosecco.
If Christian Cowan’s blush made you nostalgic for the ’80s, Tibi’s most recent fall collection had you reminiscing on the sleek and relaxed silhouettes of the ’90s. Since this bodysuit baggy sweat combo made us feel our freshest, you can pair this look with the ‘Hibiscus Refresher,’ which will be sure to quench your thirst.
1 ½ oz Santa Teresa 1796 Rum
¾ oz Lime Juice
½ oz Hibiscus syrup
¼ oz Giffard Rhubarb Liqueur
Garnish: Dehydrated Lime Wheel and Raspberry
Add all ingredients into the tin, add ice, shake and strain over ice into Collins glass. Top with Soda water.
Though NYC was quite frigid this season, Carolina Herrera was able to bring warmth to the runway through the use of vibrant color, remarkable hemming, and timeless elegance. Since bold means ‘fiero’ in Italian, it’s only fitting to pair this look with the vivid citrus notes of the ‘Fiero Spritz’ - originally created by Surf Lodge in Montauk!
2 oz Martini & Rossi Fiero Vermouth
3 oz Martini & Rossi Prosecco
1 oz Pellegrino
Add ice to a glass, combine all ingredients, and stir gently!
