Not everything on a runway should be wearable or normal — otherwise you wouldn’t have a fashion show. But each show season several micro-trends pop up that look totally strange. Even stranger is knowing that eventually some of these will catch on. So will you spring for a man shawl or tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit for next fall? Decisions…

1. TUXEDO JUMPSUIT

What: Gloves for the person who has never heard of those squishy handwarmers you can get for cheap at REI.
Ideal for: The lady who might get into a fistfight when wearing a really nice outfit, anyone who doesn’t care if their hands look fat.

What: A melding of knit hats and turtlenecks.
