25 Fashion Month Trends You Should Try Now

There are about a dozen major shows every single day of Fashion Month—so yeah, we've seen a lot of cool new shoes, silhouettes, bags, fabrics and beauty looks over the past 30 days. Rather than rattle off 74 emerging trends, though, we thought we'd just pick the 25 we liked best. Without further ado, here's everything you should be wearing, carrying and stepping into right now, straight from the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris.
