In the most literal sense, the runways are meant to show us what will be in our shopping carts come next season. But even though they're looking towards the future (this month's events showed the upcoming spring/summer 2019 collections), fashion week showings can also get the gears turning on what our closet is missing, well, right now. Ever get in such a bad style rut that just the thought of shopping seems daunting? Well, the runways sometimes offer up trends you can already find in stores now, meaning your lack of inspiration is about to go out the window.
At this point in fashion month, we've witnessed a ton of trends, many of which are new (and quite divisive), and we've even seen complete overhauls of brands we've come to love. Luckily, though, we don't have to wait six months to get our hands on everything that's been sent down the runway. In fact, there are five solid trends (at least!) that you can easily scoop up starting now.
Turns out (almost) every show can be 'see-now, buy-now,' even when they don't mean to be. Click on to shop some of our favorite spring 2019 fashion month trends as they're unfolding.
