1. Bold, monochromatic suits at Cynthia Rowley, Gabriela Hearst

Monochromatic suits were shown on runways at Cynthia Rowley and Gabriela Hearst.

Matching sets have been on trend for the last few seasons, but this fall, designers turned to monochromatic suiting to make bold statements out of traditional styles. Instead of a traditional NYFW runway presentation, Cynthia Rowley opted to host a comedy show featuring the talents of stars like Ego Nwodim, Nikki Glaser and Esther Ku, entertaining audiences in monochromatic looks that took our breath away. At Gabriela Hearst, a lemon-yellow men’s suit was a brilliant, striking contrast to the neutrals that were shown elsewhere.

Want to hop on the trend ahead of next fall? Get the look with Bardot’s Parisienne Blazer. Available in a trendy Barbiecore-friendly shade of pink, in women’s sizes 2 to 8, this double-breasted suit is modern, bold and vibrant. Don’t forget to snag the matching Therese Buckle Pant to complete the look.

2. Clever sequins and metallic fabrics at Badgley Mischka, Pamella Roland

Be prepared to shine this fall. Metallic textiles and sequins were all the rage at Badgley Mischka and Pamella Roland.

There’s something to be said about a subtle, carefully-selected bit of bling to add visual interest and glamour to a simple look. But this fall, you’ll want to fully commit to the aesthetic and go all out in full-fledged glittering drama. Sequin-encrusted marvels and metallic textiles sparkled down the NYFW runways at Badgley Mischka and Pamella Roland, reminding us that sometimes, more is more.

To add some shine to your own wardrobe, opt for the Flounce London Plus long sleeve wrap maxi dress in gold metallic sparkle from Asos. The dress is a spot-on dupe of the Badgley Mischka style pictured above, and is available in women’s plus sizes 14 to 20.

3. Playful novelty bags at Kate Spade

Ever the playful brand, Kate Spade showed a new set of colorful novelty bags.

Kate Spade has long been the gold standard when it comes to playful bags, and this NYFW, we saw that they have no plans to change any time soon. From bags in unique shapes, to bold colors to unexpected materials, we love Kate Spade for its well-made bags that are chock full of personality. You can hold out for the fall colorways that the brand showed this week, or skip the wait and shop the Bijou Metallic Colorblocked Mini Top-handle Bag. Available in pink or blue, the mini bag features a fun, heart-shaped closure. The style is just big enough to hold your daily essentials, and also comes with a crossbody strap for the ultimate in versatility.

4. Feathers and furs at Naeem Khan, Brandon Maxwell

Naeem Khan and Brandon Maxwell sent textural works of art down the runway during NYFW A/W 2023.

One of the easiest ways to elevate an everyday outfit is to add some texture in unexpected ways. Nothing could be more unexpected than the purple feathered confection that Indian-American couturier Naeem Khan sent down the runway this week. Feathers don’t just add texture, they also add movement and lightness to any look. Whether you’re floating along in a feathered look, or opting for a cozier take like the teddy bear coat we saw at Brandon Maxwell, there’s no better time to texturize your look.

J.Crew has been offering feathered clothing and accessories since last fall, from airy purses to house robes and everything in between. Our top choice, however, has to be the Petite Plume silk tunic set with feathers. This chic set of silk pajamas are hemmed with feathers that’ll add a touch of glamour to your at-home looks. Who said that your sleepwear couldn’t be on trend?

5. Reimagined classics at Michael Kors, Thom Browne

From Thom Browne's radical updates to traditional plaids, to Michael Kors' minimalist neutrals, classic design with a modern twist will reign supreme this fall.

Whether it’s Michael Kors‘ brilliant take on American closet staples or Thom Browne‘s groundbreaking and artful creations, NYFW was dominated by modern twists on classic wardrobe essentials. From tasteful plaids sculpted into gender-bending styles, to finely tailored dress shirts, wool dresses and elegant capes—the easiest way to add some pizzazz to your looks is to wear a new version of a traditional style. 

When it comes to modern-with-a-twist, we’re big fans of The Row. The Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen founded brand has led the way in updating classics in the finest materials, updated silhouettes and exquisite quality. Take, for example, the Ludo Oversize Turtleneck Sweater. The sweater is oversized and dramatic, with dropped shoulders that hit halfway down the arm, wide ribbed cuffs and a luxurious, dramatic length. Shop the style in women’s sizes XS to XL.
