Here, a look at the trends both retailers and manufacturers are tapping for the new season:

  • Easy silhouettes, including loose, flowing vests, cardigans, dusters and tunic tops over both fitted and wide leg pants or skirts.

  • New fabrics treatments, such as crinkle knits, blends and novelty yarns that add shine and texture.

  • Ribbed, cable and fine-gauge stitches that bring texture to layering pieces, such as fitted sweaters.
