Fashion week, more than any other week of the year (apart from, well, the other fashion week six months later) is the time when inspiration is at its highest. After seven days of nonstop runway shows, presentations, and previews, it's almost impossible for outfit ideas and styling methods not to pour out of you—and that's before you even take into account street style. There's only one problem: You can't actually buy what's on the runways for at least six months, more if you're waiting for sale prices. 

Well, like most things in life, this is one issue that can be easily solved with a trip to Nordstrom. And to prove it, I went ahead and plucked seven trends straight from the fall/winter 2023 runway collections that literally just debuted and sourced market that's available right this second—no patience required. Keep scrolling to shop all of fall 2023's most viral fashion-week trends, from fishnet tights to metallic pants, at Nordstrom. 

1. Penny Lane Coats

The fuzzier the coats, the better, appears to be fall 2023's motto, with Sandy Liang fully backing faux-fur trimmed coats à la Penny Lane. And if cozying up just around the hems of your outerwear isn't enough for you, don't fret. Extra furry faux-fur coats and jackets are, too, trending, with highlights including those featured in Khaite, Rodebjer, and Interior's fall collections.

2. Fishnet Tights

Arguably the biggest micro-trend of the week was the fishnet tights featured in nearly every look on Tory Burch's fall/winter 2023 runway. Simple yet impactful, the once-hated hosiery is ripe for a mega comeback.

3. Shearling Shoes

Designers' growing love of shearling and faux-fur shoes that don't just come in slipper form feels made for me (someone who loves the look of heels or otherwise stylish footwear without the cold, uncomfortable experience that comes with wearing them). Comfortable and dangerously chic, this pair from Khaite especially is calling my name, but the picks below are equally alluring.

4. Metallic Pants

Nothing will get people looking and talking about your outfit quite like a pair of metallic, gold or silver pants—period. Consider this look from Proenza Schouler's fall/winter 2023 runway show hard proof that I'm right. 

5. Peplum Tops

I never thought I'd be saying this, but peplum tops are back, and I for one can't get enough of them. Elevated far past the styles we once wore then later hated, this season's takes on the hourglass-adjacent silhouette are sleek, sexy, and ready to be worn day in and day out. For inspiration, look to Proenza Schouler and Brandon Maxwell.

6. Chili-Pepper Red

Ask anyone who attended shows this season to tell you the color they spotted most on the runways and I guarantee they'll give one answer and one answer only: red. Specifically, a vibrant shade I'm calling chili-pepper red. Seen at Sandy Liang, Gabriela Hearst, Proenza Schouler, and more, this particular hue is gearing up to be 2023's most prominent color trend.

7. Wrist Cuffs and Bangles

Last but certainly not least are wrist cuffs and bangles, a jewelry trend that really kicked off with Saint Laurent but has since grown into a much larger entity, with sightings across New York during fashion week, at brands like LaQuan Smith and Brandon Maxwell.
