15 Fashion Trends The Runways Are Stealing

Yes, we watch the shows at Fashion Week and scope out the latest trends. And yes, we follow popular style bloggers and even pick up a print fashion mag from time to time. But if we're talking real style, we look to the streets. Because it's not the mainstream that gets us excited — it's the unexpected. The people pioneering the next big It item aren't the glossy mags or big bucks bloggers, they're the cool, don't-give-a-fuck Instagram kids — the ones you pass on the street and do a double take, maybe thinking, What the hell are they wearing?, while loving their look.
So in line with F*ck The Fashion Rules, we're bringing you the trends that started from the ground up. From oversize polos that are just the right amount of weird to comeback jewelry like toe rings and mood rings, these aren't pieces you're seeing on the runways. They're the quirky, perfectly strange items that, when styled the right way, can say a whole lot more than anything you'll score at a typical fast fashion (or even high-end) retailer. Click on to see what the cool kids are wearing and let us know in the comments what else you've been seeing in your feeds — and on the streets.
