From Wes Anderson to the inspiration of the '70s, we round up the biggest trends across the top destination shows.
When talking about the trends of the fall 2015 season, we only need to refer to two things: there was the cold, and then there was the '70s.

We might as well just end it right there — because that is, really, all you need to know. Basically every big trend revolved around these two categories. We understand the focus on warmth — we saw some record-breaking winter temperatures this year, so why not start protecting against the freeze in the chicest manner possible? Designers seemed to all wonder the same thing: what's the best way to keep my customer both warm and fabulous?
Meanwhile, the '70s as a trend certainly isn't a novel idea, though it was a surprise to see that every city embraced it with the same enthusiasm. London was an exciting mix of everything from the '60s through to the '90s, but the Me Decade was the overwhelming winner of the season.
So, how did things shake out for fall 2015? Scroll through to find out.
The colors of the season, as we noticed earlier last month, revolved around earthy and natural shades which were popular in the '70s, including burnt oranges, olive greens and browns.

Athletic clothing doesn't have to be so casual that it can't make the transition to something a little more suitable for outside the gym, and that's where "athleisure" comes in.

Wide-legged cropped pants? This one's a no brainer — and definitely very '70s.

Another trend focused on warmth, coats often hit floor lengths this season, coming in just about every shape, color and fabric.

You'll certainly have your choice of how to drape yourself next fall because it seemed like everyone put their own version of a cape on the runway.

Often layered, loose-fitting ribbed knits gave looks a comfortable and slouchy feeling.
