There's a seventies opulence to the one-shoulder draping we saw on the runways this season. But lest you think this trend is relegated to formalwear, consider Hellessy's take on the trend - a fancy top paired with slouchy track pants.

If you're getting Clueless vibes from some of the check patterns from the runways, you wouldn't be wrong. There was much attention on Daniel Lee's debut at Burberry, which included golden tartan patterns. In New York, Collina Strada and Adeam also chose vibrant yellows, while Thom Browne (who returned to the New York schedule this season), chose red, white and blue textured versions.

The 80s is calling - specifically that ruffly confection worn to the dance. From both the London and New York runways, designers took inspiration from this blast from the past. In case you hadn't figured this out, when it comes to this trend - the bigger, the better.

What's the winter season without statement outerwear? This season, one of the themes we saw was sleek coats whose long length nearly grazes the floor. Khaite showed several versions of this type of outerwear, while Prabal Gurung doubled up on trends with a red, floor-length stunner.

Injecting a dose of sensuality and fun into the upcoming Fall and Winter season, here comes the vibrant red. It's an unexpected, yet welcome, addition to winter wardrobes. The best part is its versatile application; we saw it applied on formal dresses, outerwear, suiting, and knitwear.

In more neutral tones, gray made a strong showing on the runway, in monochromatic applications, like Brandon Maxwell's skirt and sweater set, or Tory's structured top and textured pants combination.
