Fishnets, camo print and yes, the pantsuit, are among this season's top styles.
New York Fashion Week has come and gone, but these trends are here to stay. (For one season, at least.)
These shoes were made for walking.
Sensible footwear was found everywhere from Proenza Schouler to Carolina Herrera — the latter of whom is typically better known for glamorous ball gowns than workman's boots.
Slides (at Coach, above), booties and sneakers were an on-trend choice for ladies with places to go.
At Calvin Klein, the brand's new Belgian chief creative officer Raf Simons showed his own interpretation of America's history, adding modern touches to traditional American workwear pieces.
At Coach, English expat Stuart Vevers fused two distinct parts of American culture, the prairie and NYC hip-hop, into one distinctive look. Early hip-hop was also a source of inspiration for Marc Jacobs.
German designer Philipp Plein also tapped into American culture, sending looks reminiscent of early '00s Juicy Couture and Ed Hardy down a runway flanked by two neon Statue of Liberty signs at the New York Public Library.
The chilly weather coast to coast had us thankful that designers have embraced oversize puffer coats, offering up plenty of chic options for staying warm in the near-Arctic conditions. (Well, at least what felt like near-Arctic conditions.)
Thom Browne event showed an over-the-top puffer coat bridal look, complete with a quilted train, carried by another model wearing a calf-length puffer jacket of her own.
More wearable options include a ditsy floral print version from Coach, a velvet number from Dion Lee and a few oversized striped looks from Public School.
Whether it was the Hillary Clinton effect or not, it was clear from day one of New York Fashion Week that pantsuits would be a hot trend.
Some were fitted and feminine, others had slouchy or boxy shapes, and many came in traditional menswear fabrications including plaid and houndstooth.
With political protests taking place throughout the country over the past few months, it's no surprise that a handful of designers used the words "rebellious" and "militant" to describe their latest collections.
For the second season in a row, velvet was a standout textile on the runways.
From red carpet-ready evening gowns (Jason Wu, Oscar de la Renta) to puffer jackets and sweat pants (Dion Lee), there was no shortage of options for those looking to get their velvet fix. Even Jeremy Scott put his own spin on trend, sending hot pink bell bottoms as well as a pair of technicolor velvet bottoms with Jesus' face on them down the catwalk.
While one could argue that these prints are timeless, it's been a minute since they have been spotted with such frequency at New York Fashion Week.
Marion Cotillard was onto something when she paired fishnet stockings with a Dior LBD at the premiere of Mal de Pierres back in October. The once-tacky stocking style has officially become cool again, and was the choice accessory for designers as diverse as Jeremy Scott and Jason Wu.
Fishnets were also spotted at Simon Miller, while versions with floral patterns were seen on models at Alexander Wang and Naeem Khan. At 3.1 Philip Lim, long-sleeve fishnet sleeves were layered under leather bustiers and slip dresses for an edgier look.
In addition to Cotillard, the trendsetting Kardashian/Jenner sisters have been pairing patterned tights with destroyed denim and Yeezy clear booties.
Electric hues provided a shock to the system.
Head-to-toe vibrant red, hot pink and royal blue looks were peppered throughout the presentations at Sies Marjan, 3.1 Philip Lim and Monse.
At Zadig & Voltaire and Altuzarra, the pops of color were a bit more subtle, with citron camisoles and stop sign-red leather gloves peeking out from under pantsuits.
The color of the season, however, was no doubt La La Land yellow, reminiscent of the yellow dress worn by actress Emma Stone on the movie poster. From Delpozo to Calvin Klein to Tibi, the triumphant hue brought cheer to the runways.
