Fashion is a weird thing. Designers show their collections on the runway months before the season they’re designed for. Fall 2017 fashions, for example, were shown way back in February — and we’ve been waiting (and waiting and waiting) to wear these trends ever since.

At last, fall has arrived! So here are nine fashion trends you can finally try now that it’s not a million degrees outside.
1. Fringe jackets
Fringe was one of the biggest trends on the fall 2017 runways, and the best way to integrate it into your everyday wardrobe is with a fun fringe coat.

2. Dark florals
Pack away your bright, sunny florals. Dark floral prints are here for fall (and even Zendaya is a fan).
3. Red everything
Red is the color for fall. You don’t have to go with head-to-toe red like a runway model, though — a pop of the color on your purse or shoes will keep you chic.
4. Glitter boots
Ever since Rihanna rocked the Saint Laurent glitter boots this spring, we’ve been waiting for boot-friendly weather to try the trend ourselves.
5. Retro hats
Marc Jacobs made great use of retro hats in his fall collection, and our Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them-loving souls want all of them.
6. Broad-shouldered jackets
The big shoulders of the ’80s and early ’90s are making a comeback. You don’t necessarily need shoulder pads, but broad shoulders are in.
7. Long skirts
Don’t think that dresses and skirts are only for spring and summer. This fall, long and mid-length skirts are going to be everywhere.

8. Big belts
Wide, statement belts are back this season to cinch your jackets, dresses, and oversized shirts.
