The pitfall of the covetable fashion show? The items on display won’t be available for about six months. The least the shows can do is serve as inspiration, and it’s inspired that we find ourselves, especially by these three major trends: The Luxe Slouch, Monotone Color, and the Long Coat and Sweater.
Here’s how you can dress like you just came back from the shows (and stole all the best looks).
The Luxe Slouch
What: “Baggier pants, luxury sweats, looser-fitting clothes all around. And LOTS of fur (sigh).” — Aaron Hicklin

Anderson striped wool-blend sweatpants; Heschung Zermat shearling-lined leather lace-up boots; Loro Piana Montgomery suede-trimmed beaver-lined cashmere jacket
What: “There was a very monotone color palate this year, with the notable exception of Gucci. Grey predominated everywhere.” — Aaron Hicklin

The Long Coat and Sweater
What: Sweaters and coats were worn long — sweaters well below the waist in many cases; coats below the knees. Notable exception: Calvin Klein, with cropped sweaters and bomber jackets.” — Aaron Hicklin
