The Critics’ Choice Awards returned to LA on Sunday night and gave us another pretty amazing red carpet. This show introduced us to quite a few fashion trends and here are five that we’ll be seeing everywhere all awards season long.

Nude Shades

Nude dresses were all the rage at this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards, with the likes of Anya Taylor, Elle Fanning, Cate Blanchett, and Phoebe Dynevor wearing outfits in neutral colors.

Let It Shine

After ruling the red carpet at the Golden Globes, shiny dresses returned in style, with everyone from Danielle Deadwyler and Kate Hudson to Kerry Washington and Amanda Seyfried wearing them.

Going Sheer

Sheer dresses have been going strong for quite some time and several stars at this award show embraced this trend, from Anya Taylor-Joy and Lily James to Janelle Monáe and Julia Garner.

Edgy Cutouts

Hollywood superstars can’t get enough of dresses with cutout details these days, and Elle Fanning, Daisy Edgar-Jones, and Sarah Hyland were only some of the stars to give them their seal of approval.

Something Extra

Many dresses at the Critics’ Choice awards featured unexpected extra details, from ruffles fanning to flowy capes and sleeves, including the ones worn by Viola Davis, Stephanie Hsu, Quinta Brunson, and Michelle Yeoh.
