Every six months the world sits back and experiences the spectacle that is Fashion Month. Made up of the fashion weeks of New York, London, Milan and Paris, these four back-to-back festivals of fashion are the biggest in the world and set the trends for the coming season.

Womens Fashion Month officially concluded last week, leaving us time to reflect and analyse the biggest trends on the catwalks this time round. Scroll down to see 10 of the most widespread trends we saw at Fashion Month and what you'll officially be wearing next season.

Puffer jackets

Puffer jackets and other inventive thick jackets were seen across all the runways at Fashion Month. Stella McCartney, Coach and Dion Lee are just a few of the designers who showed puffer jackets.

Power suiting

We saw power suits all over the catwalks in New York, Milan and Paris. Designers are looking to empower and inspire with structure, tailoring and androgyny. Designers like Max Mara, Dries Van Noten and Isabel Marant all showcased power suits.

The 80s

Love it or hate is, the 80s was another big trend during Fashion Month. Big shoulders and bold colours are going to be making a return next season. We saw this trend in the Pucci, Erika Cavallini and Anteprima shows.


Metallics dazzled all over London, Milan, Paris and New York. Christopher Kane showcased a number of stunning silver and gold creations. We also saw glittering metallics at Balenciaga, Comme des Garçons, and Pucci.

Athletic inspired

Sporty lines, stripes and tracksuits were a common theme during Fashion Month. Louis Vuitton, Courrèges and Koché are some of the designers that showcased the trend.


Plaid is back in a big way. We saw this trend on the catwalks at Louis Vuitton, Stella McCartney and Nina Ricci.

Another favourite trend was punk resurgence. We saw leather, tough tailoring and edgy style appear on the catwalks of Versace, Bottega Veneta and Marco De Vincenzo.

Asymmetric Knits

This was easily one of the biggest trends from the London catwalks. The interesting deconstruction and asymmetric take on knitwear was seen the Christopher Kane, Burberry and Peter Pilotto shows.


This time last year velvet was huge on the catwalks and this year it's back again. We saw it at Dion Lee, Altuzarra and Jason Wu.
