Every year, NYFW provides an opportunity for experimentation and the treatment of fashion as high art. But for many of us, we also want some tangible takeaways from the week that draws the eye of celebrities, major designers and more. So although we might not all be ready to don the most ferocious looks you'll see coursing down the runway, every show can reveal a bit about what trends will be trickling down into the mainstream for the coming months. With that in mind, we compiled a list of our favorite 2022 NYFW trends and some options to buy into the hype.

Our favorite NYFW trends to shop and wear right now:

From knit hats to accent bags and more, there was a lot to explore at NYFW this year.

1. Knit hats

Knit hats have been steadily on the rise in the past few years, and this year's NYFW firmly cemented the slouchy headwear as a real garment to consider. While the above entry from A. Potts might be a little experimental for everyone, there are a lot of great options that fall more into the streetwear realm from brands like Stussy and Story Mfg. If you want to read more about A. Potts, click here.

2. Accent bags

Every year, more and more interesting ways to accessorize are opening up. One such avenue is the burgeoning world of accent bags and other eye-catching, but practical supplements to an outfit. Marshall Columbia makes a great bag that's sure to turn heads; there are plenty of options around from a variety of brands. If you consider yourself a more minimal dresser, an accent bag can be the one splash of color in a muted outfit. Or go the maximalist route (pictured above) and create a whole kaleidoscope of colors.

3. Varsity jackets

As part of an overall move in mainstream fashion towards 90s/early 2000s nostalgia, varsity jackets were on full display at fashion week this year. From truly eccentric versions like the above from Tommy Hilfiger to some more muted renders, varsity jackets are a nice piece toeing the line between overly streetwear and prep.

4. Button-up leather coats

Leather jackets are one of the most timeless pieces of outerwear in the game, but we actually saw a pretty specific silhouette of the iconic jacket popping up a lot this year. Button-up leather jackets with more of an overshirt/chore jacket feel were ubiquitous at NYFW this year, and make a great addition to anyone's outerwear rotation.

Shop the look: ASOS DESIGN faux leather longline trench coat in black ($75), ASOS DESIGN longline real leather trench coat in black ($200), System SSENSE Exclusive Black Faux-Leather Jacket ($575), Palmer Black Leather Jacket ($1525), Martine Rose Purple Overshirt Leather Jacket ($1750)

5. Jumpsuits

Whether you call them jumpsuits, catsuits, or bodysuits, the bottom line is that they are back in fashion for SS23. You can always get a glimpse of what’s to come fashion wise if you see the Kardashian’s wearing it, and both Kourtney and Kim were spotted in a bodysuit this past week with Kim wearing a glamorous disco style borderline sheer suit (perhaps drawing some inspiration from Beyoncé’s 70s themed birthday party) to the Fendi runway show, and Kourtney wearing a more athletic jumpsuit to the Tommy Hilfiger Show. 

Shop the look: ASOS DESIGN tie waist jumpsuit in black ($58), Skims Black All-In-One Jumpsuit ($145), Cos Sleeveless Wide-Leg Jumpsuit ($150), 3.1 PHILLIP LIM Navy Utility Jumpsuit ($640)

6. Anything Tommy Hilfiger

Speaking of Tommy Hilfiger, it seems as though the brand is experiencing a new resurgence of sorts. Perhaps it’s the 1990s and 2000s nostalgia? Regardless, Tommy Hilifiger had one of the best shows during this fall’s NYFW, and as far as the hype goes, we haven’t seen this much hype surrounding a Hilifiger show in a while. Expecting to see a lot more Tommy clothes being sported next spring and summer.

Shop the look: The whole collection ($49.50+), Crest Embroidery Fluffy Sweater ($229), Crest Applique Jersey Cardigan ($290), Single Breasted Textured Coat ($489)

7. Long denim skirts

You know what? The 90s and 2000s just might be making a real official comeback because we haven’t seen skirts this long since that time period. Throw in the denim, and we’ve really turned back the hands of time. Tons (literally tons) of calf-length skirts were seen this year at NYFW which was pretty neat. We didn't see these on the runway as much, but they were all over in street style. Just don’t start putting skirts over top of pants. That’s where we draw the line.

Shop the look: Old Navy High-Waisted Split-Front Cut-Off Non-Stretch Jean Maxi Skirt ($30), Urban Outfitters Urban Renewal Remade Pieced Denim Maxi Skirt ($89), Free People Come As You Are Denim Maxi Skirt ($118), Reformation Jayde High Rise Denim Midi Skirt ($128), Dries Van Noten Raw-Edge Denim Maxi Skirt ($275)
