Not ready for sweater weather and puffer jackets just yet? Take your mind off the impending dip in temperature and check out the outfit forecast for spring 2020. New York Fashion Week shows have birthed a host of new trends, from waist-cinching corsets to buttery smooth leather dresses and bottoms. As always, it's never too early to adopt any of the trends ahead, which is why we provided "get the look" options too. Start wearing the trends before everyone else.

Bralettes Under Blazers

The only way to wear a blazer next season is with a bralette. (Save this for your off-duty days, of course.) Designers played with the idea of showing off your midriff while still making you feel covered up. Take cues from Kors and Wu and opt for high-waisted bottoms for more coverage.

Christian Dior J'ADIOR Knit Bra

Since this Dior knit bra is an investment, here are some ideas for how to wear it aside from under a blazer. You can style it over a button-up, let it peek out from underneath a silk shirt, wear it over a turtleneck sweater, or pair it as is with a high-waisted trouser.

If your blazer is plainer, show some fierceness underneath with a tiger printed bra. Bonus points if you work the tiger print into your bottoms or accessories too.

Buttery Soft Leather

There's no mistaking that leather—including vegan or faux—is the one material everyone's excited to work with next season. Though Nanushka practically built its brand on this look, more and more designers are finding new ways to incorporate the buttery soft material into their pieces. Personally, I am obsessed with that Kate Spade olive leather dress.

This Tibi dress is reversible, so if you're feeling flashy wear the sequins on the front. Otherwise, surprise people with the glitzy detail from behind. They'll do an instant double-take.

For spring, there will be a greater emphasize on defining one's silhouette. An easy way to do this is with a corset, which came in all forms on the runway. Brock Collection made the most romantic Victorian-esque top while Siriano showcased a more bare-bones structure. Get ready to cinch everything in.
