The Only 5 Trends You Need to Know From NYFW

New York Fashion Week's trends read like a guide to all things American. There were joyful, celebratory moments (stars and stripes across tees at Tommy Hilfiger, and flag-like skirts at Calvin Klein), and there were angry, politically charged moments that were bound to arise after the election. Designers didn't hold back when it came to conspicuous messages: Prabal Gurung, Creatures of Comfort and Public School were just a handful of the brands who got their feelings off their chests and onto their clothes. The slogo idea ain't running out of steam anytime soon, folks.

But there were other facets of America that we noticed within this round of A/W 17 shows: How about the black leather–clad bikers who could hit Route 66 with nothing but their innermost thoughts for company? Or the many twists we saw play out on the grey wool suit? 

The good news is that you can already wear and buy all of these looks. So take a look at next season's trends, and see what's NYFW catwalk–approved (and available) now.
