We can hardly believe that we’re already a quarter of the way through September’s Fashion Week circuit, and yet the New York runways have already finished and picked back up in London. 

Naturally, we saw our fair share of memorable fashion moments: like Rihanna rolling into her own show on the back of a motorbike, or when feminist writer Gloria Steinem sat in the front row of Prabal Gurung. Not to mention the fashion itself: the glorious color palettes that enthuse us to inject our fall look books with the springtime spectrum, the fine details that we can’t wait to be copy-catted so we can actually afford them in six months’ time. 

There were some key trends, however, that we don’t need to wait until the next sartorial season to style. We’ve picked out our top four tropes from New York’s SS18 shows that you can start wearing straight away. 

Check out our 4 favorite trends from NYFW that you can incorporate into your closet immediately: 

blazers


Over the past few weeks it’s felt like we can’t move for plaid blazers – and we love it. There’s nothing like the rich texture of tartan to pull an otherwise pared-back ensemble together. The summer runways have something different in stall for us, though: how about a making your jacket the focus of your outfit by choosing one in a bold shade, or a luxurious design to add a masculine touch to a smouldering evening look. While oversized ‘80s styles have been trending hard lately, Prabal Gurung has made a strong case for a more structured fit.

metallics


We’re loving these sumptuous, dark metallic shades that have made small but significant appearances on the runway. The subdued finish of the fabric recalls certain confectionary wrappers from yesteryear, and we can’t wait to get stuck in to the style. With such a smooth finish, this look will work wonders for a statement raincoat to see you through fall.

fanny packs


The moment the fanny pack made a comeback we knew it was going to be a long and sweet reunion. It’s been reincarnated in sleek, leather designs, re-branded a “belt bag” and undergone all manner of embellishments. But the SS18 runway has proven that the original, sports-centric, neon-bright, hiker’s-friend pocket pouch is finally back in the fray.

americana


With all that’s been going on in the world – especially Trump’s America – it was hardly a surprise to learn that some collections had a political undertone. Raf Simons chose dark themes for his Calvin Klein designs: while on the surface the cheerleader pompom dresses and cowboy-style silk shirts seemed a celebration of the country’s heritage, references like a pump (allegedly) in the style of the Friday the 13th hockey mask and blood-splattered frocks brought it crashing back down to reality in the current political climate. Elsewhere, designers seemed to be trying to find light in the dark with stars-and-stripes motifs and, you guessed it, more rhinestones over at Coach.
