In a matter of weeks, the fashion crowd will descend upon New York, London, Milan, and Paris once again to attend the spring/summer 2020 shows. Once they do, the streets of these iconic fashion capitals will be flooded with these chic showgoers—and we'll be sharing their best outfits like we always do. Quite frankly, we're chomping at the bit to see the fashion week street style looks that will set the trends for the season ahead. But in the meantime, we're placing bets on which fall street style trends will dominate the scene.

Will beige still reign supreme, or will another color trend eclipse it? Will we see fashion people carrying more micro or oversize bags? Ahead, we're making our predictions on the trends we expect everyone to choose this season. Scroll down to see the nine trends we're highlighting and shop the versions of each that are already available. Only time will tell if we were right or not…

"Weird" Bags

I can only really describe the bags everyone will carry at fashion week as quirky. Whether in unexpected shapes à la Staud or whimsical prints and colors (we're looking at Gucci's new strawberry print), this season the coolest bags are all a little offbeat but in the best way possible.

Lots of Leather

Leather separates are a trend we saw completely invade the F/W 19 runways, so now that those pieces have become available, we expect to see more than a few street style stars wearing leather dresses, skirts, pants, and shirts.

Square-Toe Heels

Square toes are the defining detail of every trendy pair of shoes right now, and for fashion month, square-toe heels will be the It shoe choice everyone will agree on.

Buttery Yellow

Move over, beige. There's a new color trend in town for fall, and it's equally as luxurious. Meet the soft, buttery yellow hues that everyone will be testing out over the coming weeks. Pastels aren't traditionally part of a fall color scheme, but when they're this good, we're down to make some exceptions.

Reinvented Trench Coats

There's a larger trend afoot, and it's out to reinvent all your classic wardrobe staples. First up? Trench coats. This season, they're getting fun new updates in oversize shapes and subtle yet eye-catching details that transform the topper from "boring" to downright trendy.

Slouchy Suiting

While fitted suiting can come off a bit too stuffy, slouchy suits strike the perfect balance between forward and polished. Catch fashion girls styling them with everything from strappy sandals to white sneakers.

Chunky Jewelry

So long, barely there baubles. Jewelry is getting a statement-making upgrade for fall, and we're predicting chunky jewelry, especially chainlink necklaces, will be a huge hit.

Oversized Dresses

You can thank cool Scandi It brands like Cecilie Bahnsen and Ganni for igniting this trend. All the prettiest dresses we're about to see this season can be described as frothy and voluminous.

Lug-Sole Boots

Well, it wouldn't truly be a street style roundup without an "ugly" trend, would it? Chunky lug-sole boots will accompany the above frothy dresses for some epic outfits looks that street style photographers will clamor to snap.
