With one fashion week down and three more to go (London, Milan and Paris), we’re recapping some of our favorite trends from last week’s shows in New York. We saw a handful of themes reappear on the runway again this season — from western-wear and strong shoulders to bold, maximalist pieces — but we’re most psyched for the new trends that made their big debut.

Stop thinking that you "can't" wear yellow or that yellow doesn't look good on you, because it's going to be one of the biggest color trends for spring and summer. We saw it all over the runway, and we can't wait to add this sunny hue to our wardrobes.

This season was all about maximalism, with bold prints, all-over embellishments and lots and lots of sequins. From all-over sequin gowns to small embellishments, sequined outfits will be your spring and summer go-to statement pieces.

On the runway this season, we still saw a lot of ruffles, fringe and raw edges, but one of our favorite new SS 18 trends is tassels. They are a fun embellishment on any ensemble this year.

The Candian tuxedo just got a major fashion update this season — we saw several (some unexpected) designers put their own take on jeans and denim jackets this season.

Dressing down is out, normcore is a thing of the (semi) past, and dressing up and suits are in. We love the idea of the power suit for work, date night or anything in between.

The cold shoulder trend has evolved for summer and spring, and we saw a lot of cool-girl geometric cutouts. These are a new way to show off the skin, and we're really into it.

Prints are in, and the bigger the better. We saw a lot of all-over print outfits, mixing of bold prints and even a large variety of abstract prints.

33/40 :The naked dress

Sheer was everywhere this season, and we're fully embracing the naked dress look. This trend might be the boldest yet, but styled with a jacket, a slip or jeans, the sheer dress can act as a great light layering piece for spring and summer.

37/40 :Where's my fanny?

Practical? Yes. Fashionable? Oh, you bet! Who really would have thought that fanny packs would make their comeback on the runway? They have been seen on celebs and bloggers the past few months, but when we saw a decent number on the SS 18 runway, we knew this trend was back with a bang.
