When it comes to fashion week, three's a trend.

Silky, luxe-loungewear inspired robes are nothing new, but this season a new style emerged at Christian Siriano. For his tenth anniversary collection, the designer sent down plush, robe-like coats that were fluffier than any 5-star hotel's. The theme continued at Anna Sui, whose bohemian, ’70s infused collection introduced a lavender-hued robe worn over mixed prints. Finally, at Hellessy, the robe look was more silky, but thanks to a drape-y hood, it looked had a shrugged-off, luxe-casual vibe.
Spotlight on scarves

Scarves—hardly a groundbreaking accessory, we know. Yet this season, designers championed them, from knit, long numbers at Zero + Maria Cornejo to delicate silky takes at Self Portrait. And at the 3.1 Phillip Lim show, looks marched down with paisley printed scarves tightly knotted close to the neck. Take note: for fall 2018, scarves won't be an afterthought.

Plaid was big on the spring runways—from Miu Miu to Fendi. For fall, many designers have returned to tartan checks. Tanya Taylor's Madonna-inspired collection featured reworked plaid blouses and matching sets, Zimmermann sent down a trench-style coat with a peach tartan and Rihanna-anointed designer Matthew Adams Dolan snuck acid-hued checks underneath denim and black suiting for a look that felt ever so subtly Clueless-inspired.
