It’s not every season that most of the big shows during fashion month send looks down the runway that anyone, even someone who might not necessarily consider themselves a “fashion person,” could recreate with pieces they already own. Trust me—I’ve attempted to mimic my fair share of runway looks. Typically, it involves the help of sample pulls, personal purchases, and sometimes even cutting up pieces in my closet. But this fall, you can rest easy knowing that one of the most significant and talked-about trends of the entire season was wearability.
From a tank top and jeans closing out Matthieu Blazy’s third show for Bottega Veneta to Miu Miu models donning leggings and zip-up hoodies, there was no shortage of wardrobe staples and basics on the runway at the fall/winter 2023 shows across the board, from New York to Paris and everywhere in between. Tailored coats reigned supreme at Khaite. Blazers accompanied nearly every model at Saint Laurent. And classic denim made appearances at both Alaïa and Gucci. Clearly, designers, like us, have an affinity for pieces that are as versatile and sensible as they are shockingly gorgeous in construction. *Sighs in relief.*
Prepare to save all 60 of the runway looks featured ahead. Trust me, you’ll need them when you go to style all the classic staples in your current wardrobe.
