No rain, snow, gale-force winds or shortage of taxicabs will stop the front-row crowds from descending upon the first round of A/W 16 shows in New York next week in major style. It’s time for new trends and for calling dibs on spring 2016’s big trends.

Shopbop market editor Kate Johanson let us in on the eight-piece plan that will set these early birds ahead of the pack—from all-important outerwear (we may be keen, but we aren’t foolish enough to freeze) through to the two cost-effective accessories everyone can experiment with right away.

“A street style favorite that’s almost become routine for the cold-weather months. Street style stars will opt for a vibrant twist on a classic fur or a retro-inspired shearling coat.” — Kate Johanson, Shopbop market editor
“Never choosing just plain old jeans, for FROW-ers it’s all about updating your trusty denim with statement details. The wider the leg or the louder the embellishment, the better the look.” — Kate Johanson, Shopbop market editor
