9 Fall Outfit Trends New Yorkers Are Already Wearing

New York Fashion Week was filled with both trends to come and trends to try immediately, but if there's one thing NYC girls do best, it's exercise practicality. Instead of obsessing over the S/S 19 trends everyone will be wearing in six months' time, I decided to shift my focus toward what the ladies of NYFW were wearing right now, in an effort to inform my unfortunately still pending fall wardrobe (and yours too!). In my opinion, that was a very New York thing to do.

Ahead, I rounded up nine of my favorite outfit trends spotted throughout NYFW. When broken down, these outfit formulas instantly become more approachable and can act as your official guide while planning which items your fall wardrobe will need. Prepare to see trend-driven pieces like snakeskin pants and cowboy boots accompanied by familiar faces such as structured blazers and faux-fur jackets. If you ask me, the current fall outfit trends spotted in NYC are the perfect blend of the classic items you already have hanging in your closet and the trends everyone's talking about. If that isn't the definition of the perfect seasonal wardrobe, I don't know what is.

Full Dress + Chunky Sneakers

Contrast a fuller statement dress (particularly one with puffy sleeves and a cool pattern) with a pair of dad sneakers. The footwear choice balances out the drama of the dress, allowing you to wear it during the day with ease.

Cool Fleece + Floral Pants + Colorful Sneakers

This might be our favorite fall outfit yet. Between the practical yet stylish fleece and the '70s-inspired pants, what's not to love?

Structured Blazer + Prairie Dress

When you have a meeting at 9 but are hitting the prairie at 5, layering a structured blazer over your more whimsical dress will allow you to have your cake and eat it too. We love how the details of the dress look popping out from underneath the blazer.

Fuzzy Jacket + Neon Turtleneck + Black Trousers

Take your go-to fall outfit formula of a statement faux-fur jacket and black pants and spice it up by layering a bright turtleneck underneath. This fun addition adds an unexpected pop to an outfit that probably needs it.

Oversize Blazer + Midi Dress + Cowboy Boots

Make cowboy boots appropriate for the office by styling them with a midi dress and a classic blazer. The outfit will read professional yet forward. 

Statement Jacket + Animal-Print Pants

If you're constantly finding yourself gravitating toward the latest trends, we highly suggest you invest in a pair of snakeskin pants. Go for a retro statement jacket like Alyssa, or take it down a notch and opt for a more classic leather jacket instead.

Leather Dress + Black Ankle Boots

Matrix vibes are a huge trend for fall, and thanks to the undeniable ease that comes with wearing head-to-toe black, we're here for it.

Boilersuit + Pumps

Boilersuits were everywhere at NYFW thanks to their versatility and level of comfort. Style the one-piece-wonder with sleek pumps to add that unexpected level of polish.

Floral Dress + Combat Boots

Once again, New Yorkers proved you can never go wrong with a floral midi dress and combat boots. In case you haven't noticed, we love juxtaposing frillier pieces with edgy accessories. What can we say? We love keeping you on your toes.
