Now that Fashion Month has come to a close, it’s time to assess the many—many!—looks that were on display in New York, London, Milan and Paris, and gauge which looks are most likely to become discernable trends this fall.
While some overarching themes—modern leopard prints, strategic layering, winter whites—surely will have mass appeal, others might have little influence on the masses (case in point: drastically oversize overcoats). Here, we’ve sifted through hundreds of runway shows throughout the month-long style spectacle and are forecasting 12 top trends that we’ll likely be seeing a great deal of come fall—whether we like ’em or not.
Even though we may still be in the throes of winter (hello March snow flurries), we wanted to give you a clear idea of what the future holds—and provide you with a handy guide with which to reflect back when the time comes.
