11 Breakout Fall 2022 Trends From The New York Fashion Week Runways


New York Fashion Week felt like that peak lockdown confusion, as Monday turned into Tuesday and no one could figure out what day it was. The fall 2022 collections have fall release dates, but many of them have looks that could easily end up in a sunny spring or summer offering.

There are slinky dresses, party sequins and disco dancing essentials. The most “falling” thing about the runways is the sheer dominance of brown. Sure, there are nods from sheepskin and suede to cool-weather elegance, but it’s the playful embellishments—the bows, the crystals, the sequins—and the vibrant colors that have been New York’s sweet takeaways this season.

Read on for a closer look at the biggest trends coming out of NYFW, and stay tuned for what’s coming out of the other fashion capitals in the coming weeks.

All about that waist

Designers add structure to fall items like voluminous skirts and chunky blazers with dramatic, waist-cinching belts.

Brown is the new beige

From cozy oat milk outfits to almond oil-toned items, light neutrals have been our go-to for winter dressing — until now. Designers are richly coated with chocolate browns and cocoa tones in the fall 2022 collections.

Bustiers and corsets, oh my

We didn’t leave any boned undergarments in 2021. Like ‘Bridgerton’, corsets and bustiers were revamped for a second season. Dion Lee even puts a wintry twist on the intimate top with some furry accents.

Dressed Ball Gowns

Cinderella-esque ball gowns go best with chunky cable knit jumpers, per Brandon Maxwell, and basic puffers, per Khaite.

Elle Woods pink

Look to the light of the fictional legal world for the mood-boosting shade of fall: bright pink. Michael Kors and Carolina Herrera this season are two of many who agree that “whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously insane.”

flirty tweed

Tweed, a carryover from Pre-Fall 2022, continues to gain in relevance. Kim Shui accentuates twill and fur minis, while Prabal Gurung uses the wool fabric on a bare-midriff dress.

glitzy garnishes

Belly dancers get it, Jennifer Lopez gets it, your early high school dance-bound self gets it: It’s the chain (or rope) strap. The sometimes glittery, sometimes studded extra-long waist accessory doesn’t necessarily serve a purpose, but it’s fun as hell.

Go for Sparkle

The easiest way to get over sweat is to get under party sequins. Giant sequins adorn mermaid-esque dresses at Altuzarra and create dramatic frills on the floor at Jonathan Simkhai, for two.

peek a boo

We get a new crop every season to covet. For fall 2022, the area of ​​skin that covers our rib cage is the place to be exposed. Et Ochs comes to the occasion with a smart cropped blazer, as does Elena Velez with a bustier style dress.

Tight off-the-shoulder dresses

New York designers offer a sartorial treat for when that moody fall weather arrives: a slinky off-the-shoulder dress with ruffles in an earthy tone. Victor Glemaud has a body-hugging version in a warm latte shade.

Space-dyed knits

It was only a matter of time before brands discovered a knitted equivalent of tie-dye. Space dyeing is a technique that gives the yarn a multicolored effect, and designers started experimenting with it for the spring of 2022; they continue to play with the concept for fall 2022 by using it on long sweater dresses.
