Top 10 runway recap A/W20, by The Edit Advisory:

The Autumn / Winter presentations in New York, London, Milan and Paris feel like a lifetime ago rather than a couple of months. Who could have predicted the craziness and how all of our lives have changed.

We put together our Top 10 Takeaways for the Fall, when we will hopefully be back in clothes again and not just dressing from the waist up.

  1. Large scale prints bring newness in plaids, houndstooth and floral prints.

  2. 80's Wall Street dressing is emerging with oversized suits still relevant from the previous seasons. Also, seeing slimmer suits and skirt suits emerging.

  3. Quilting continues to be a big trend not only in outerwear but on pants, skirts and accessories. Newness within contemporary patterns instead of traditional box pattern.

  4. Off-beat dusty pastels are emerging in lilac, mint, lime and lemon bringing a new take on the ever continuing color trend.

  5. Leather was the most seen fabric in all categories from dresses to jackets to skirts and pants. Newness in head to toe dressing and mostly seen in shades of beige, chocolate and maroon.

  6. Sheer and lace layering in high necks and turtlenecks seen under suits and dresses as a key layering piece this season.

  7. Cut-out at the décolleté and waist was a top style detail seen in modest and overt ways.

  8. Dark lichen emerges as a key color for the season seen in all categories and fabrications.

  9. Fringe continues in a bigger way this season in apparel, outerwear and accessories. Seen in all different fringe sizes and fabrications.
