New York Fashion Week has come to a close, leaving behind plenty of sartorial inspiration for getting ourselves dressed next fall. There were, of course, some noteworthy moments that happened this past week, but, most importantly, we’ve gained pretty good insight of what trends we’re going to see hit the streets next fall.
Check out the eight trends that ruled the New York runways—and will soon take over your wardrobes—below. Next stop? London, Milan, and Paris.
Neon animal prints
Our beloved animal prints got the neon treatment this past week, and the result looks like an acid trip (in the best way possible). From Jeremy Scott’s Lisa Frank-esque metallic leopard to Adam Selman’s sheer red zebra, we’ll never look at animal prints the same way again.

It’s official, we’re saying goodbye to millennial pink for good. This fall, vibrant fuchsia is here to steal the show.

Not only did the ‘80s dominate beauty inspiration this week, but silhouettes alluding to this particularly fashionable era were spotted in many collections, as well. From Alexander Wang’s power woman to her party girl counterpart seen at Christian Cowan, ‘80s silhouettes—fitted mini dresses with plenty of shoulder accents, leggings, and vinyl jackets—ruled the runway this season.

The statement puffer
The puffer jacket still reigns supreme in terms of outerwear, but we’re leaving the cropped version behind. This fall, we’re seeing puffers that are larger, longer, and much more unconventionally colored. From Christian Cowan’s structured lime green metallic version to Kim Shui’s florals, outerwear will never be boring again.

Statement earrings took on a whole new length this week, reaching down to the shoulders—and beyond.

Rainbow hosiery had a moment this week, making colorful appearances under space-age looks at Jeremy Scott, luxe faux fur at Saks Potts, and more.

The presence of metallics this week did not go unnoticed. While we saw a fair share of sequins, as per usual, we also saw plenty of liquid metallic materials—in the form of plunging jumpsuits at Sally LaPointe, bow-tied dresses at Ulla Johnson, and more.

The bow-tied scarf
Next fall, we’ll be seeing more than just your average neck gear. Scarves are structured and puffy, tied in the perfect bow, and, in some cases, even doubling as an extra layer.
