Fashion week trends

NYFW brought us a lot of new styles to think about, some more approachable than others (read: gray cable knit mules/slingbacks at Alexander Wang). Here are 5 trends coming up for fall 2013: 1. Peplums: Ok, so this is not a new trend, but it definitely has staying power. It popped up on the runways at shows like Kate Spade, Jason Wu, and Lela Rose.


2. Plaid: Another trend that's been sticking for quite some time. Alice + Olivia, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Tommy Hilfiger all incorporated the plaid patterns in their shows.


3. Structured Pants & Jackets: The fall runway brought a lot of structure, in both suits and separates. A structured jacket was prominent in the Rag & Bone show.


4: Leather: Leather was, surprisingly, seen in a lot of pants silhouettes. Slouchy leather "sweats" were seen at 3.1 Philip Lim, Charlotte Ronson and Christian Siriano.


5. Jumpsuits: The 70's silhouette hasn't died yet! My favorite jumpsuits came down the runway at Suno and Band of Outsiders
