From feathers to fringe to all-out 70s 'dos, the decades are mashing together next season. Check out some of the trends we saw consistently on the runways, from Nicole Miller's feminine fashions to Bibhu Mohapatra's more eccentric styles.

Jumpsuits

Not just for handymen or space travelers, one-piece

Not just for handymen or space travelers, one-piece outfits are totally in style! One the runway at formal wear designer Jenny Packham, bright and patterned at Nanette Lepore to the bold black and white onesies at Narcisco Rodriguez, jumpsuits will be all over in 2015. Putting together an outfit has never been easier.

From the more conservative J. Crew to the lavish Rachel Zoe, sequins were all over the runway this year! Pants, blazers, mini-dresses and accessories were all decked out in the plasticized sparkles and we're admittedly pretty excited to see the the city a little more sparkly come fall.

Feminine menswear for ladies

It only makes sense that in an era

It only makes sense that in an era where a maternity line for masculine-identified women and tailors who cater specifically to genderqueer individuals that gendered fashions will continue to develop. Several designers, from Rag and Bone to Jenny Packham, Monique Lhuillier, Erin Fetherston and Rachel Zoe all featured formal pantsuits for women.

While New Yorkers are notorious for dressing all in black, New York Fashion Week proved that white is making its way onto the dark fashion landscape. Erin Fetherston used black detailing in her feminine white dresses and Rachel Zoe presented a predominantly black and white collection. Herve Leger's models walked the runway in a sleek black and white dresses and Kate Spade featured skirts, tops and jackets with bold black and white prints.

Like a family traveling through Disneyworld, models walked the runway in an abundance of fanny packs this year. Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lupe Gajardo and Rag & Bone all prominently featured fanny packs with their outfits.

Several designers sited their influences being the early 1970s. Perhaps it's because that's when they had their best years. Or perhaps its because 'That 70s Show' is back on Netflix. Regardless, Rebecca Minkoff, Anna Sui and Tory Burch all evoked styles of another era with fringe, bohemian patterns and plenty of funk.

Fur & feathers

Bad news for PETA-subscribing fashionistas: animal pelts are so in next season. Seen as coats, wraps and adorning formalwear, jewel-toned furs and feathers were all over the runway this week. Tadashi Soji's collection, inspired by flight, featured plenty of feather-heavy gowns and Ralph Lauren's models looked cozy in plenty of furry accessories. Proenza Schouler also featured some pretty sleek cow-skin dresses. This really isn't the season for animal right activists to be trendy.

BONUS: Head Snoods

No, we're not talking about the PC game with shapes an colors, we mean these strange knitted contraptions that keep your ears and chin warm. Spotted prominently on the Ready to Fish runway in a variety of colors, we think these are both stylish and practical to keep New Yorkers warm and cozy in the cold. Plus, they make a bad hair day easily disguised as high fashion. These may not actually catch on, but we're sure hoping they do.
