The Biggest Trends From NYFW (That You Can Shop Now)

Blink, and you may have missed it — New York Fashion Week has already come to a close, after jam-packed days taking over the streets of New York (and our Instagram and TikTok). While the fashion set has already decamped to other festivities, like Sunday night's VMAs and Monday night's Met Gala affair, we're left salivating over all the NYFW Spring 2022 trends and inspiration for dressing next season. After a year and half hiatus, most of the major New York based brands showed up with IRL events and presentations that showed off a whole lot of optimism for next year. The colors were bright, the tailoring was relaxed, and the designs were all-around playful. Fashion seems to be saying the future will be bright — but for those of us who can't stand to wait any longer, here's how to start shopping for next season's biggest trends, now.

Electric Knits

We've all come to love our knitwear over the past year, but it's time to liven things up for spring with sweaters in bright colors and cardigans in electric hues.

​Next Checks

As Seen At: Prabal Gurung, Brandon Maxwell, Christian Cowan

Just add combat boots and a leather jacket, and you can wear this dress all the way until spring, and then some.

The runways are riding the western trend into next season with modern interpretations of traditional motifs, like fringe, chaps, and of course, cowgirl hats.

Wyeth Cash Cowboy Hat ($88)

No fall wardrobe is complete without some cute headwear, and no spring wardrobe will be complete with a cool cowgirl hat.

\u200bRonny Kobo Marley Pant

​Crochet Away

As Seen At: Anna Sui, Jonathon Simkhai, Staud

This splurge-worthy statement coat will add a whole lot of charm to your wardrobe for years of wear to come.

If crafty crochet isn't for you, take notes from Jonathan Simkhai and start looking for simple, feminine crochet knits, like this sweet top.

​Metallic Madness

As Seen At: Tom Ford, Rodarte, Christian Siriano

Tom Ford knows how to end Fashion Week with a bang — this year, it was with a sequined, satin-filled, majorly-metallic moment that (literally) mirrored other collections with celebratory sentiment. If the best is yet to come next spring, the least we can do is start dressing the part!

River Island Sequin Halter Top

River Island Sequin Halter Top ($50)

The runways have confirmed: You no longer need an occasion to justify wearing a sequined halter top out.

Commando Sequined Leggings

Commando Sequined Leggings ($200)

These are the kind of leggings that make you want to dance as soon as you put them on — which is the point of this trend to begin with.

City Chic Class Satin Joggers

City Chic Class Satin Joggers ($79)

Get ahead of the metallics trend so you can wear your new pieces through the holidays, too. Hopefully, as fashion has predicted, there will be plenty to celebrate by then!
