New York Fashion Week has officially come and gone but left in its wake is an abundance of try-worthy trends. Sure, the recent runway offerings aren’t scheduled to hit stores until Spring 2018 but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a jump on the newness now. From candy colors to playful prints, there are several ways to show off your high fashion IQ before fall even gets fully underway. Ahead, five NYFW spring styles you can snag right now, as modeled in the street style looks of some of our fave blogger babes.

Pastel:

Easter egg colors were everywhere this go-round. Incorporate them into your fall look with fabrics like vegan leather and velvet and silhouettes that are easily layered. (Shop 1, 2, 3)

Micro Florals:

You already know florals are a must-have for fall, and spring’s proving to be no different. A trend spotted at multiple major shows, smaller scale, ditsy-style floral can work into your look now and keep your style blooming into the sunny season. (Shop 1, 2, 3)

Sheer:

See-through styles were spied from designers throughout the week, from Christian Siriano to Victoria Beckham. Tackle the transparent trend in a wearable way by throwing it under a moto jacket or picking pieces with strategically placed coverings (ahem). (Shop 1, 2, 3)

Print Mashups:

You know how street style stars are always pairing patterned pieces that seem to somehow work together? Well, designers this season figured out a way for the rest of us to cheat at the trend by pre-mixing prints on one item. Throw on a dress and instantly look like a style expert? Yes, please. (Shop 1, 2, 3)

Orange:

From traffic cone shades to citrus tones, this color was hard to miss at the New York shows and there’s a shade that suits everyone. Even better? This hue’s perfectly on point as we welcome the season of pumpkin spice. (Shop 1, 2, 3)

FashionMVP Trend of the Week: Velvet

It’s a fabric typically reserved for holiday time but velvet is officially cutting the line this fall, meaning there’s no time like the present to get in on the trend. No longer the stuff of your pouf-sleeved childhood party dresses (white tights and maryjanes, anyone?), the plush pieces of today are decidedly stylish, sexy, and cool.

Try pairing this fancy fabric with denim, menswear suiting, leather or lace. From slip dresses to ankle boots, there’s a way to work the fabric for day or night – and well before winter rolls around. Because who wants to wait that long to add some luxe to their look anyway? Ahead, 10 ways to get that velvet vibe in your life ASAP.

Our Shift and Shout Dress, available in eight colors, is the perfect foundation to your office chic look. We’re loving this work staple in the must-wear color of fall, navy blue. Another fall favorite that every working girl needs in her closet is a blazer. Statement sleeves, lovely lavender hues, and luxe satin are just a few of our favorite ways to upgrade your classic black blazer to your new favorite statement item. Dress up our Miss Punctuality Blazer with a classic striped top like the Anything is Posh-ible White Striped Top.

FashionHomecoming Accessories to Complete Your Look

Last week on the blog we gave you homecoming LBDs under $50 and some serious homecoming outfit inspo. Now that you’ve (hopefully!) found the dress of your dreams, we’re here to help you pick out the perfect homecoming accessories to complete your look!

Homecoming Accessories: Hair

Don’t forget about those locks! Hair accessories are one of our favorite trends at the moment, and what a better night to rock one than homecoming! Whether you’re having your hair done or styling it yourself, hair accessories are the easiest way to elevate your look with minimal effort. If you’re going for a more simple hair style, the Moon and Sky Gold Rhinestone hair clip is perfect for clipping a few pieces back for a more finished look, while hair combs are essential for dressing up a half up do! Or if you’d like an elegant updo, add a headband like our Breathtaking Grey and Silver Rhinestone headband for bit more sparkle.

Homecoming Accessories: Clutches

A cute clutch is the perfect piece pull your look together. This season at the Lulus HQ, we just can’t get enough of rich textures, elegant embellishments and magical metallics. Our On a Roll Velvet Clutch, available in four fall tones, is sure to add style points to your homecoming ensemble. Plus, with a roomy interior and a detachable shoulder strap, this bag is as functional as it is cute. Pearl embellishments are having a serious moment this fall, which is why we love the In Your World Beige Pearl Clutch. A combination of neutral tones and faux pearls in gold settings will add a touch of elegance to your look. Lastly, our Reflected Image Rose Gold Mirrored Clutch is sure to make you shine like a star this homecoming.

Homecoming Accessories: Jewelry

The best part of accessorizing any outfit is adding a little sparkle and shine to your look with wow-worthy jewelry. No matter what style of dress you decided on for homecoming this year, we’re sure to have a piece of jewelry that will compliment it. For a chic, minimalist look, pair a low neckline with a layered drop necklace such as the Modern Minimalist Gold Layered Collar Necklace. If the dress you’ve chosen features a high neck or embellishments near the neckline, we suggest opting for a statement earring like the Queen Of The Isle Gold Earrings. Or add some serious glamour to your homecoming look, while staying on trend, with our Glitz on the Rocks Silver Rhinestone Choker Necklace.
