The truth is that fashion has never been immune to the realities of life. Do we sometimes prefer to lean on the fantasy of the podium rather than to face everything that exists outside of it? Sure. But he will find his way. Like it should be. Whether it was a moment of silence for Ukraine at Armani or the crazier Armageddon that showed up at Balenciaga, the fashion industry is reacting more than ever to the world in all its dichotomies. Which isn’t to say that part of it doesn’t also provide the visual escape hatch. From a return to the art of women’s clothing in response to so many months spent in sweatpants, to bathrobes as personal care, to the equestrian vibes that help us all get back to nature, see how trends reflect our world now – or making it a bit prettier and glitzier, to help collective agreement.

While we’ve all started dressing up for work and parties, there’s a part of us that still yearns to #robelife. Talk to that inner cozy child in coats that wrap you around, grow big, and yes, sometimes come home.

If you’re looking for glamour, look no further. The 80s are back, bolder and redder than ever. Embrace oversized proportions and epic glitter in looks meant to be immortalized on film. It gives old fashioned Valentino red.

Of course, there is no single definition of femininity; it’s totally subjective. But the mood that dominates the catwalks is one of light colors, maybe a feather, something diaphanous and lingerie-inspired. In other words, we know it when we see it.

Speaking of parties, nights out and after dark, the designer’s message is clear: it’s time to go black again. But before you let intrusive thoughts about something simple cloud your judgement, note that these looks include a capital S sparkle. Layer the glitter and sparkle like the night sky.

There’s just something so cool about the bomber jacket. The designers take a look at the fearless vibe a great leather jacket can give off, announcing that you can fly a plane, kill it in a business meeting, or wear white pants outside all day in New York. York anytime – sheepskin is optional.

Designers go back to the drawing board. A literal tabula rasa. And leaning on the power of a large white tank top. Maybe put a logo on it? Or keep it bare. But the thing is, this must-have pairs well with just about anything and there’s a certain power to its ease. Have you ever tried too hard and stared longingly at the girl in jeans and a tank top wishing you had done less? She showed up at Bottega Veneta and now we all want to be her too.

The trench coat is a closet staple, but that doesn’t mean you have to be one and make it. The fall runways are full of versions that take the principle of your favorite beige jacket and turn it upside down. Why not opt for a trench dress? A pleated trench? A trench coat with cutouts? Suddenly this base feels less, well, basic.

The color story unfolding on fall catwalks is pulled straight from your desk drawer, borrowing the unapologetic bursts of your favorite highlighters. Whether you want to make an impact in bright yellow, magenta, or green, this trend isn’t for shrinking purples.

The timeless chic of the Smoking is no coincidence. A woman in a tuxedo is something to behold, and now her options are endless. From super slim to slightly oversized, or paired with a baseball cap, it’s officially tuxedo season.

The creators have proven their affinity for drawing inspiration from bourgeois leisure: tennis, golf and of course everything related to horse riding. An unbridled love of girl-on-horse culture currently reigns – if you’ll excuse our proliferation of puns – in the form of single-breasted jackets, skinny pants, knee-high boots and whatever suits a weekend in the English countryside.

The silhouette of the moment is extra long and close to the body, but not uncomfortably. It’s less about showing every curve and more about creating a long line. After so many seasons of baggy, oversized proportions, it seems just in time.
