A mix of spring patterns was a nice harbinger of the warm weather to come.
At the Sies Marjan show in NYC, Aimee Song wore a dress in crushed velvet with white boots and fishnet stockings, several trends we would see throughout fashion month. For fishnets, the larger the knit, the better.

A shiny leather coat on Vanessa Hong added some rainy day chic to the Paris shows. Leather coats like this one by Ellery were a popular and practical choice on fashion week guests.
These clashing colors on Camille Charrière early in NY fashion week turned out to be a good indicator of trends we would see throughout the month, when guests at the shows mixed clashing pink and red or orange and red for visual impact. The Celine crossbody bag is also a favorite with the fashion crowd.
One way to stand out from the crowd: a yellow leather jumpsuit by Savannah Snead, as seen on stylist Brandon Foster at NY fashion week last month.
The humble baseball cap is becoming something of a high-fashion item. We spotted Miroslava Duma wearing one several times during Paris couture week, and then a Balenciaga cap appeared at New York fashion week. The caps in question are usually new and close-fitting for a polished look.
Caroline Daur mixed a white jumpsuit with an unstructured trench by Rochas for a look that transitioned from winter to spring.

If you’re going to have to wear a winter coat well into March, at least make it a big pink one, as Helena Bordon did at Carolina Herrera. This Pepto Bismol pink shade kept popping up on guests at the shows during Fashion Month.
