Over the hump, but not quite home yet, fashion week has just blazed through Milan. It's official, we are now on the home stretch of fall 2015. And you know what that means: It's time to take a look at what's trending.

For those keeping up, there won't be too many surprises below. There appears to be a whole lot of groupthink for this season. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. Designers know that temperatures are hitting record lows, and that people are craving the '70s (we guess?), and they're only here to give the people what they want.

Scroll through to see, and check out the top fall 2015 trends from London and New York.

'70s Chic

It's still everywhere. Get used to it.

Fur Shoes

This may be one of the least practical trends around, but Italian designers are giving it the old college try. Can they make fur shoes happen? Only time will tell.

Great Lengths

Often taking on bright colors or stand-out prints, floor-length skirts offer a more feminine alternative to trousers next fall.

The Velvet Fog

The liquify look of velvet was a big part of Peter Dundas's final show for Emilio Pucci, and we couldn't help but notice it popping up elsewhere.

Masculin/Féminin

Gucci's gender-bending exits on the first day of Milan Fashion Week were just a taste of what was to come. Men's suits and tailored pants were on menu for designers like Bottega Veneta and Fay.

The Yeti Coat

Comfort took priority in designers' fall 2015 outerwear offerings, but there's no reason you can't make a statement while being warm. Enter the yeti coat. This one will definitely turn a few heads.

Metallic Skirts

Business on top, party on the bottom. Or at least, that's the way things went this past week. Metallic skirts paired with neutral tops mean you're there for business, but certainly are not afraid to spice things up.

Victoriana

An ongoing trend this past month, Victorian-inspired blouses were especially popular in Milan. They added a romantic note to any runway they graced.
