Blustery blizzards aside, New York delivered like a champ, kicking off the first leg of Fashion Month with outstanding collections we couldn’t tear our eyes off of. The energy coming from the runways was undeniable. Look after head-turning look—whether fresh updates to an existing trend or totally new—exuded power and wearability. From political statement pieces to the resurgence of a beloved utility print, find all the biggest trends from New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 below, and shop them at every price point to get ahead of the game.
Proving the trend isn’t going anywhere, fresh iterations of the silky fabric are more elegant and sultry than ever, with feminine tops and high-low skirts in unexpectedly bright hues.
Patent leather in a rainbow of colors dominated the runways, offering a reflective, fashion-forward take on the winter staple.
Slogan-emblazoned tees and knits in obvious support of inclusivity and equal rights were one of the biggest trends witnessed on the runways and on the street (encouragement we desperately need right now). Easy-to-wear pieces can be dressed up or down while outwardly championing the human race.
While we didn't see this one coming, it's one of our favorites to regain momentum this season. The utility print, reinterpreted through modern outerwear, is cool again.
Chunky leather boots with track soles, laces and edgy embellishments are reminiscent of '90s grunge.
The power shade continued its reign, infusing everything from menswear-inspired trousers to floaty skirts.
An asymmetric design with a single long sleeve revealing a lone shoulder is the new preferred (and highly sophisticated) way to bare skin.
Classic gray grid prints are remastered with a fashion twist (read: menswear-inspired suiting with unexpected details such as voluminous ruffles, trims and leather).
