With fashion month officially wrapping earlier this month, buyers and editors alike have had time to sift through the myriad runway offerings and adjacent collections to decipher what will become the biggest trends come this fall.
Here, a look at 11 of the trends that are sure to stick this upcoming season.

Whether a party shoe or something more serious, the platform heel made a big comeback on the fall ’19 runways. From Tom Ford’s velvet peep-toe platforms kicking off New York Fashion Week to Tommy Hilfiger’s vintage sandals at his Tommy x Zendaya extravaganza at Paris Fashion Week — and everywhere in between — expect to see a lot of heightened shoes come fall.
