The world of fashion is full of eccentrics so it comes as no surprise that somewhere along the line, someone decided that winter collections would be unveiled before summer was even half over.
Is that a problem? Absolutely not because let's face it: the 2014 fall fashion trends are the best. How can you not get absurdly excited about oversized sweaters, motorcycle jackets and thick wool scarves?
So, with all the fall shows behind us now, here are some of our favourite wearable fashion trends that hit the runways.

This is one of the most wearable trends for fall. All things cozy, wooly and fuzzy made their way down the runways of The Row, Michael Kors and Stella McCartney. Just think, all you have to do to be trendy is to put on your comfiest knit sweater!
This fall, it’s cool to just blend in with the masses. So, what is normcore, you ask? Essentially, it's the trend of dressing completely "normal." Mind you, normal doesn’t equate to frumpy. Black trousers? Tweed blazer? Wool pencil skirt? All fall under the normcore trend, thankfully.
Bath Robe Coats
Mango Lapels Wool Blend Coat, $209.95
Ever wish you could just walk outside in your cozy warm bathrobe? Well, you shouldn’t but you can come pretty close by embracing fall 2014’s robe coat trend. Chloe and Altuzarra were amongst the designers showcasing this extremely wearable trend.
The distinct style of the '60s was evident on the fall 2014 runways. Bright bold geometrics and the signature silhouettes of the "Mad Men" era will undoubtedly be influencing your fall fashion choices.
Get ready to wear big stetsons and western-inspired clothing this fall. Westerns have always had a sexy allure but this season, the Wild West is back in the spotlight.
JOA Mustang Jacket, $163.63
Apparently, the IKEA monkey’s signature shearling coat made his style influence known to the world’s top designers. Practical and stylish, shearling was one of the most obvious trends on the runway.
Your feet have been infinitely thankful for the last two seasons, which saw sneakers overshadow heels (finally!).There was no tripping on the runways during the fall 2014 collections because the comfy shoes are back for this autumn, styled with couture clothing, of course.
Orange is the New Black
Club L Owl Jumper Dress, $97.83
We love fuzzy animals on YouTube and we love them manifested on our clothes. Owls, pups and some creatures we couldn’t quite identify were seen in the collections of Alberta Ferretti and D&G, among others.
Accessories typically take a back seat to clothes but not this fall season. If you’ve ever wanted to say something without actually saying it, fall 2014’s statement bags will say it for you.
