Fall’s chilly weather may be just around the corner, but designers, editors, and buyers already have an eye on spring. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the fresh new trends we spotted coming down the runways at the just-wrapped Spring 13 New York Fashion Week shows. Which ones are worth your closet space?

1. Black-and-white mixed prints: Designers channeled an Op Art inspiration for dizzyingly chic results.

2. Jeans gets dressed down (and cuffed up): Blessedly looser silhouettes, a cuffed hem, and a range of deconstruction are de rigueur for denim.
