15 Runway Looks That WILL Show Up In Fast Fashion

Leave it to stores like H&M and Zara to press the fast-forward button on life: Before runway looks actually show up in designer stores, the trends have already been translated (and in some cases, directly knocked-off) in our neighborhood mass retailers. Just like the world will turn and the days will pass, you can count on fast fashion to churn out the trends.

So, we're calling it: From slip-on satin slippers to oversized botanical prints, these are the trends you'll be seeing at your favorite fast-fashion retailers in no time. Click on and place your bets on which looks you'll undoubtedly see on your next shopping trip.

Fast fashion's always doing its own affordable takes on Céline's It bags. And while we were already starting to see the resurgence of the top-handle bag, it's officially time to kiss your totes and crossbodies farewell, because these little guys are going to be a must-have come spring. Also, keep an eye out for details like contrast stitching, button-flap pockets, and streamlined studs that are just the right amount of badass.

Lacy babydoll tanks and slouchy pants are all too easy to imitate. We saw a ton of pants that are gathered at the ankle this fashion month, and we know stores like Zara are going to jump on that train. If past seasons' merchandise is any indication, Chloé is a favorite among fast-fashion sellers. Now, we can all be #ChloeGirls — well, sort of.

Good news! Your favorite rubber-soled slip-on sneakers aren't going anywhere by spring and summer. Only the new version will be a bit more luxe. Look for fabrics like satin and crafty details like the raw hems on this pair from Calvin Klein. Comfy and chic? Yes, please.

New twists on work staples were a mainstay at the shows from New York to Paris, and it's all about the pinstripe. Blazers will take new shapes and the three-piece suit isn't what it used to be — when these pop up in stores, look for a tunic-over-pants 'fit and you'll be a total boss at the office.

It feels like every dress we saw this Fashion Month had some crazy embellishment, so get ready to take your usual frilly dresses up a notch. Large florals embellishments are going 3-D, and we know this is something we're about to see at ASOS and Zara alike.

The saddle bag trend and the fringed tassels trend come together in this bag from Altuzarra, who we know is a favorite for fast-fashion knock-offs. In warm, '70s-inspired colors, bags like this are sure to be a sell-out.

If you still need convincing that leggings are cool again, see here, here, and here. And we know all the fast-fashion destinations are going to get in on this one. Only this time, leggings are going to start popping up in more luxe variations, with new textures and colors we haven't always seen. We've got our eyes out for a pair of high-waisted suede ones.

Everybody wants to be a part of the Wang gang, so we're putting our money on his sleepwear-inspired blouses when it comes to thinking about what fast fashion will start making stat. Or, you know, you could just wear start wearing your pajamas out in public.

We're always shopping for new wear-everyday basics, and we're hoping this bold polo dress will be hitting the stores pretty soon. It'd be so easy to step into on those mornings when we don't feel like getting dressed.

We can totally see our go-to fast-fashion labels creating their own faux-leather versions of this Miu Miu original, and we're totally down to have fun with oversized lapels and boxy silhouettes instead of the typical moto.

Dare fast fashion knock off a Gucci loafer? They just might. In a slip-on, printed-silk variation, we can totally see Aldo carrying a similar shoe without the horsebit hardware, and we'd totally wear the heck out of it.

We know — florals for spring aren't groundbreaking. So by spring and summer of next year, retailers will hopefully change it up with a variation of this oversized botanical print. So much more interesting than yet another ditsy floral.

Everyone loves a chain-strap bag, but Proenza Schouler's new take on it is all too tempting — silver, square chain links are one statement bag strap trend you'll hopefully be able to cop at a more affordable price.

We're fans of mixing prints, but now, start looking for two prints on one clothing item, like this Prada skirt. It's another fun way to shake up your usual office pieces, and we have a feeling fast-fashion stores will be getting on the bandwagon here, too.

The slip dress is becoming a universal staple — everyone should own one. And since fast-fashion destinations are always pulling inspo from Saint Laurent, we know they'll want to put out a metallic one like this look from the runway. We wouldn't be mad at that thigh-high slit, either.
