5 Fashion Week Trends You Can Buy Right Now

Twice a year we get to break up our tedious stalking of Instagram clothing tags with a flurry of experiential catwalk shows, trend predictions, and aspirational street style. Fashion Week is a glamourous reminder that trends are shaped by luxury designers as much as our favourite indie Insta-brands. But in the age of "see now, must have now," waiting four to six months for catwalk items to be available can feel a touch too far in the future.
But good news: Fashion is inherently cyclical, which means many of the trends you're seeing already have existing roots — and with a little creativity and digging, it's completely possible to replicate the looks we're seeing sooner rather than later. While Fashion Month is far from limited to just five trends, the AW18 selections ahead are ones we're looking out for on our next spending spree. See now, definitely buy now.
