It's official: New York Fashion Week is behind us. And, with that, comes a pretty solid idea of the kinds of things we'll all be wearing come fall.
Amongst the many shows and presentations that took place over the last week were a number of reoccurring trends. While some of what we saw are current trends that are here to stay (slime green!), others are a bit more unexpected: quirky headgear, form-fitting catsuits!
Below, eight of our favorite trends to come out of the New York Fashion Week shows.
Romance was alive and well on the runways in the form of feminine, delicate ruffles, from the ruffled necklines at Brock Collection and Tory Burch to the tiered masterpieces at Longchamp and Ulla Johnson.

If there was one color that was prominent across the boards, it was light purple. From the pastel lilacs at Tibi and Nanushka to more vibrant shades at Kate Spade, you can expect to see all iterations of the shade come fall.

The Statement Sleeve
The bigger, the better was the motto for sleeves this season, with billowing, puffed, and drapey iterations seen everywhere from Zimmermann's romantic florals to Hellessy's '80s-inspired glam.

Now, this is a rule we can all get behind. Why wear a full set of earrings, when you can wear one of each? From Chromat's neon crinkles to Adeam's chunky pieces, rocking two totally different earrings at the same time was all the rage.

Slime Green Is Here To Stay
Neon green fans, rejoice! The celeb-favorite color is here to stay, making appearances on the runways of Chromat, Rachel Comey, and Sies Marjan, just to name a few.

Catsuits are making a comeback, you guys. The formfitting one-pieces were seen in sheer leopard versions at LaQuan Smith, vibrant lacey florals at Collina Strada, and a purple sleeveless version at Cushnie. Can you say meow?

Asymmetrical One Shoulders
Forget off-the-shoulder, necklines will be all about asymmetrical, one-shoulder cuts. From off-shoulder-one-shoulder hybrids at Hellessy to true single-strapped frocks at Eckhaus Latta, it's all about giving the cold shoulder this fall.

If you consider yourself a hat person, then this fall will be your season. Statement hats were definitely a thing this week, from Tom Ford's fuzzy masterpieces to Hellessy's modern cowboy hat. Yeehaw!
