Fall isn’t even here yet, but we’re already dreaming of life after winter.
With New York Fashion Week coming to a close yesterday, we already have a pretty clear idea of what’s going to be a hit come the cooler warmer months. After running around from show to show, checking out what designers—emerging and veterans alike—have in store for spring, we noticed some obvious trends repeating.
Though we still have the rest of fashion month to still get through, we picked out nine ready-to-wear and accessories trends having some major moments on the runway this past week. We’re sure the following will be making appearances in London, Milan, and Paris later this month—and right into your own closets this April.

Lazy Girl Robes Move over, pajama dressing—the bathrobe is having a major outerwear moment this spring, and it’s a lazy girl’s dream come true. We saw robes stroll down the runway from the likes of Lacoste, Jonathan Simkhai, Band of Outsiders, and Baja East in everything from terry cloth to silk.
Fringe of All Sorts Fringe had time in the spotlight this past week, whether adorning leather jackets and skirts at Rodarte and Coach or adding movement to a tiered jumpsuit at Naeem Khan. And of course, let’s not forget that leather capelet at Anna Sui—just one piece among many in her fringe-heavy collection.
Pleats, Please Accordion-style pleats were seen all over, from the exaggerated bell sleeves at Prabal Gurung to more traditional skirts at Dion Lee and Victoria Beckham. However, we can’t deny that we’re obsessing over Adam Selman’s pleated two-piece set.
The New Moccasin The moccasin is back, and they’re nothing like your lazy day Minnetonkas. From sporty, metal-tinged styles at Alexander Wang to the totally punk-inspired creeper varieties at Coach, this classic shoe got a bit of an update. If you’re looking for a more feminine look, look no further than Tory Burch for an embroidered floral version.
The Cold Shoulder Unless you haven’t paid any attention to NYFW at all, you’ll know that “off-one-shoulder” is the new “off-the-shoulder.” Labels like Tome, Milly, Rosie Assoulin, Beaufille, and many more incorporated this carefree, ‘80s throwback into their spring collections.
Deconstruction From the pieced together button-downs at Alexander Wang, Hood By Air, and Monse to pieced together fabric scraps at Eckhaus Latta, I think we’re all a little inspired to have a DIY moment with some of our old clothes now.
Birds of a Feather Light and whimsical feathers adorned everything from the shoulders of Sally Lapointe’s moto jackets to sweaters and dresses at Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler, and Tadashi Shoji.
Statement Earrings The earrings on the NYFW runways this week were definitely not your basic, run-of-the-mill studs. From the bold and bright colors at Altuzarra and Delpozo to the sculptural shapes seen at Proenza Schouler and Tibi, spring’s offerings are not for the boring. We suggest getting your ears pierced this winter if they aren’t already.
Lace It Up Laces are for more than just your sneakers this spring. Whether they’re holding together pants at Sally Lapointe, bodysuits at Tommy Hilfiger, and all sorts of things at Kaelen and Phelan, prepare to see crisscrossed laces woven through metal grommets on everything this spring.
