NYC Fashion Week brings great excitement into our lives. No, I have never been to a live show, but I do take great comfort that there is always extensive coverage.  At first glance, it may seem like the shows of this NYFW borrowed heavily from seasons past; if you experienced a case of déjà vu, you weren’t alone. The good news is that these familiar trends are much more wearable, and since they’ve been around the block already, you’ll be able to shop for the pieces in stores now to pull off looks from this coming year. Ahead, 11 of our gillty favorites from Fashion Week trends sure to keep you ahead of the curve…for a few months at least.

1. Army Trousers — Unlike the super-skinny cargo jeans of years past, these military trousers are a bit looser in the thigh and are made with materials that are more ripstop than denim. The trick is to wear them with high, high heels to keep the look from getting too costumey. 3.1 Phillip Lim; rag & bone; Rebecca Taylor.Photos: Maria Valentino/MCV Photo; Courtesy of rag & bone; Maria Valentino/MCV Photo.

As long as the cut is more formal (no railroad worker-type jumpsuits here), a gray flannel jumpsuit can look chic for a dressier event. Suno; Band of Outsiders; Yigal Azrouel.

3. Jeweled Jackets — Flecked in tiny jewels, this season’s blingy jacket looks as if it got caught in a light snowfall. Theyskens’ Theory; J.Crew; Band of Outsiders. Photos:Maria Valentino/MCV Photo; Courtesy of J.Crew; Maria Valentino/MCV Photo.
4. Folk Embroidery — In sprawling floral patterns or tight-knit geometric ones, Eastern European and South American embroidery could be found detailing the dresses and jackets of many collections.

5. Simple Strapless Silhouettes — This season’s neckline seems to be the straight-across strapless look. In a luxurious fabric like silk, satin, or leather, this simple shape can look devastatingly chic. Zero Maria Cornejo; Jen Kao; The Row.

6. Sunspot Prints — Using digital print techniques, the pattern of the season were flashes of sun peeking out from behind trees, through water, or a via an alien spaceship (in the case of Rachel Comey).

7. Plaid Pants — This dandy staple could replace the floral-printed trousers of last season. Find them in bold, big plaids to avoid any pajama-pant connotations. Suno; Richard Chai Love; Timo Weiland. Photos: Courtesy of Suno; Maria Valentino/MCV Photo; Maria Valentino/MCV Photo.
8. Quilted Miniskirt — It’s hard to find a winter piece that’s both warm and flirty, but the quilted miniskirt fits both bills. rag & bone; Theyskens’ Theory; 3.1 Phillip Lim. Photos: Courtesy of rag & bone; Maria Valentino/MCV Photo; Maria Valentino/MCV Photo.
9. Twisted Necklines — There were many different iterations of the twisted neckline, but they mostly feature a single wrap, cinch, or twist that mimicked the drape of a scarf.

10. V-Neck Sweaters — Crew-necks finally found a little competition from all the great, oversized sweaters featuring grandpa-style V-necks. Layer it with other V-necks or turtlenecks, like they did at rag & bone, Tommy Hilfiger, or Rachel Comey. rag & bone; Rachel Comey; Tommy Hilfiger.
