These runway trends will inspire your autumn wardrobe

New York is already known as "the city that never sleeps," but this upcoming week, that will become the world's biggest understatement. New Yorkers often find themselves up at 3am (thank goodness for 24-hour bodegas) and try to pack too many events into their social calendars, but this all goes into overdrive during NYC's Fashion Week. During this magical, totally chaotic time of year, city dwellers will see twice as many Ubers on the street, tons of photographers and mid-level fashion bloggers lingering around Milk Studios (each trying to figure out if the other is important), and a surplus of photos from post-show parties clogging the social media feeds of all of their favorite celebs. 

The traditional runway calendar works a season ahead, which means that this week designers will be showing their Spring/Summer 2017 collections. While we love to look ahead and know what will be trending in six months, we here in Normal Calendar Land are about to dive headfirst into the totally different (much leafier and pumpkin-spicier season) otherwise known as fall. 

As you can probably already guess, NYLON staffers adore fashion week, even though it can be a little overwhelming. With each year promising to be bigger and better than the last, it becomes almost impossible to keep track of which concepts, patterns, and embellishments are the must-haves for this season. We’ve done the work for you and found nine fall/winter fashion week trends that you'll want to try come autumn. Go forth and rock them.

While the song should serve as a reminder to your exes

Just a day after dropping new single "Nunya," featuring Dom Kennedy, Kehlani has released the winter-wonderland visuals to go along with. The singer, NYLON November cover star, and mother-to-be rocks some of the best winter 'fits I've seen in a while, including a glorious puffer jacket that could double as a down comforter that I absolutely need in my life right now.

Kehlani is clearly living her best life up in some snow-filled forest hideaway, vibing on the beach at sunset and sipping on something bubbly as she coolly reminds nosy exes that who she's with is "nunya business." There's not much of a story line (unlike her recent "Nights Like This" video); the main takeaway is that Kehlani is busy dancing through a forest, missing no one and chilling amongst people who are clearly not the subjects of the song.

Kehlani is only two short months away from bringing baby Adeya into the world, who she thanked for helping her get through the video process. "Shot that 7 months pregnant in da snow..." Kehlani wrote on Twitter, adding, "thank u baby for da motivation, mommy was FROZE."

Even from the womb, Adeya has been hustling hard alongside her momma. Twitter user @ODtheMC pointed out that this is already her second music video appearance, and she's not even been born.

Get some mulled wine ready and escape into Kehlani's winter getaway, below. Stay tuned for her forthcoming mixtape, While We Wait, out on February 22.

As in Black Panther Political Party leader

It's been a running joke that the Black parents/grandparents of millennials were really confused about all of the Black Panther hoopla ahead of its 2018 release. Many of them were anticipating a movie about members of the Black Panther Political Party and didn't know who the hell T'Challa was. Well, those people are about to have their moment, and we're about to have another one.

Variety is reporting that Fred Hampton, the Black Panther leader at the center of the upcoming biopic Jesus Was My Homeboy, could be played by none other than Daniel Kaluuya. Apparently, he is in negotiations for the role. And he's not the only Black Panther alum in the mix. The Warner Bros. project is being produced by Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler. The same article reports that the forever swoon-worthy Lakeith Stanfield—who appeared with Kaluuya in Jordan Peele's Get Out—is also in negotiations, to play William O'Neal, an FBI informant who infiltrated the Black Panther Party.

Coogler and Charles King are putting together a dream cast to tell a difficult story. Hampton was killed by the Chicago Police Department, while his pregnant girlfriend lay next to him, thanks in part to information they received from O'Neal. Whenever it's out, I strongly recommend having Black Panther queued up as a palate cleanser.
