‘Tis the season for fashion week (or rather fashion month)! In the next four weeks, industry pros will be flocking to the four fashion capitals of the world to check out designers’ Spring 2020 collections. And, of course, it all starts in New York City.

The Big Apple is hosting a slew of shows and presentations showcasing next season’s must-have pieces and accessories. On the calendar: Zendaya’s highly anticipated second show for Tommy Hilfiger, Tommy Ton, the street style photographer extraordinaire’s first official NYFW show for his label Deveaux as well as collections from the likes of Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, Tory Burch, and so many more.

And since keeping track of hundreds of looks coming in every hour can be overwhelming, we are doing the work for you highlighting only the most stylish and talked-about looks.So sit back and enjoy the best outfits from New York Fashion Week.

The models at Cynthia Rowley walked down the runway (which in this case was Tribeca’s Jay Street) in dresses and separates inspired by Doctor Seuss’s Oh, The Places You'll Go.

Sequins and bold floral and animal prints were all over this Naeem Khan evening wear collection.

Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez clearly had the 80s on their minds (just look at those padded shoulders) while they were designing the new Proenza Schouler collection.

For Spring 2020, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, the creative duo behind Oscar de la Renta, paid homage to the late designer’s Latin roots and added a modern twist to it.

Wes Gordon, the creative director of Carolina Herrera, was inspired by the California super bloom, a botanical phenomenon that represents an outbreak of wildflowers in the desert.

Jonathan Simkhai’s new collection was all about “ease, joyfulness, and unexpected femininity.” The designer also debuted a new handbag line named “woman” in four languages (Femme, Donna, Mara, and Isha).

For spring 2020 Veronica Beard “reimagined the glamour and femininity of the late sixties, and added an undercurrent of edge—it’s the good girl gone bad and the morning after,” stated the brand’s designers.

Anna Sui’s new collection was marked by boho chic femininity and lightness—chiffon floral dresses worn with jackets and cardigans, and ankle-length wide-legged pants styled with vests and t-shirts.

Jason Wu delivered a stunning collection of mostly evening dresses that oozed modern romanticism.

Bold color and 80s flair were front and central at the latest Pyer Moss collection.

Nicole Miller’s Spring 2020 collection was an ode to floral and tie-dye prints.

Jewel-toned fabrics in bright yellow, red, and green were all the rage at Sies Marjan, helmed by creative director Sander Lak.

Chic easy-to-wear pieces accented by details such as sculpted shoulders, cuffed pants, and oversized pockets marked the latest collection of Amy Smilovic for Tibi.

We already want all of these stylish sweaters from Mansur Gavriel’s Spring 2020 collection.

Tory Burch was inspired by Princess Diana’s 80s style for her new collection.

Ralph Lauren’s Spring 2020 collection oozed Art Deco elegance and glamour.

Judging by all the dancing, Tommy Ton’s models were definitely having fun at the runway showing the former street style photographer’s first official collection at New York Fashion Week for his label Deveaux.

Brandon Maxwell’s impossibly chic collection featured sexy evening dresses and a whole lot of denim worn with blazers and slinky tops.

Sophie Delafontaine, Longchamp’s creative director, presented a collection full of 80s- and 90s-inspired boho-chic pieces created for the modern woman.

Nicola Glass’ collection for Kate Spade was full of optimism and bright prints.

Jeremy Scott (yet again) presented a collection that fashion pros will be talking about for a while. It was a rock-meets-sci-fi-meets-heavy-metal kind of extravaganza.

Tadashi Shoji’s eveningwear collection included this gorgeous floral applique number.

Eighties cult label Jordache’s collection was inspired by Venice Beach, California, and included tie-dye sweatshirts, boiler suits, and denim bras.

Dubai-based label All Things Mochi credited “Payihas,” the Philippines' colorful harvest festival, as a source of inspiration for its Spring 2020 collection.

White and beige were Elie Tahari’s colors of choice for Spring 2020.

Prabal Gurung showed boldly hued power suits—with a nod to the 80s (check out those shoulder pads!)—as well as beautiful floral and tie-dye-printed pieces.
