The countdown to the fall 2016 women's shows has begun — we're less than a month away, folks! — but most designers have kept themselves very busy in recent weeks with pre-fall market appointments and presentations. While the commercially crucial in-between season flies relatively off the radar of consumers (until hitting stores, of course), we've been keeping our eye on the emerging trends, key silhouettes and standout pieces that the collections have to offer. We've found the outerwear particularly alluring, considering that it's finally freezing enough in New York to require a very heavy coat (possibly two).
Many labels seem to be catering to the street style set this time around: animal prints, super-bright colors, geometric patterns and charming appliqués are quite popular when it comes to pre-fall's most eye-catching coats. If you're in the mood for some cold weather eye candy, browse 25 of our favorites below.
