Best Street Style from New York Fashion Week

The couture, the models, the parties. Fashion week is full of fabulous fun, especially for those style mavens who live for this time of year. Fashion week is also a time for street-style stalking, also known as people-watching. Sometimes, the sidewalks are more exciting than the catwalks, as people dress up to be seen, and have their photos snapped.

What makes street style looks so much fun for fashion lovers? The best street style is original, daring, aware of trends but not defined by them, and makes you do a double-take. So what were the trendsetters wearing in New York? From the Matrix-inspired to Normcore 2.0 to accessories worn in innovative ways (it’s the glorious return of the fanny pack) to jewel-studded leather and lace, sock booties, and luxe altheisure, the New York-style set sure knows how to pull looks.

Mellow yellow

How can yellow look so chic? Paired with blacks and grays, and the right accessories. The tension of the look comes from the laid-back streetwear vibes and polished athleisure.

Shop the look:

Hat, Sunglasses, Sweater, Trousers, Bag, Shoes

White heat

White booties are so on-trend right now; all the New York fashion girls have copped a pair. Mixing white fur and jeans conveys a high-low look, and once again, the statement accessory adds a luxe touch.

Shop the look:

Coat, Bag, Jeans, Shoes

Bella donna

You don’t have to be a supermodel to pull this ultra-femme-in-menswear look. Pairing a rocker cropped T-shirt with a classically tailored suit keeps everything fresh and sexy.

Shop the look:

Sunglasses, Suit jacket, Suit trousers, Bag

Denim darling

This look is ultra simple, giving a #IWokeUpLikeThis vibe. Pair a white T-shirt and boyfriend jeans with a feminine fur, slung open.

Shop the look:

T-shirt, Coat, Jeans

American gothic

Felipe @sightonsight /

The hero of this look is the outrageous faux fur, but everything from the aviator shades to casual combat boots comes together to signal a millennial take on ’90s goth.

Shop the look:

Sunglasses, Coat, Jeans, Shoes

Girl scout

This look could be straight out of Clueless, with the yellow puffer and mini-skirt. Note the tailoring of the coat keeps a slim silhouette and a pop of red emboldens the look. As if.

Shop the look:

Sunglasses, Coat, Top, Skirt, Bag

Haute althleisure

Felipe @sightonsight /

As Gucci and Balenciaga battle it out for the hottest brand of last season, you can’t go wrong by mixing the two this season. Can’t afford the real thing? Cop the look by mixing normcore athleisure with futuristic shades and a patterned jacket. And yes, the Gucci fanny pack is everything.

Shop the look:

Hoodie, Fannypack, Trousers

Stars and stripes

Felipe @sightonsight /

Striped trousers are so on trend—and the bolder the stripe, the better. Offset the look with black that’s anything but basic.

Shop the look:

Sunglasses, Coat, Trousers, Shoes

Gingham style

Felipe @sightonsight /

Gingham in winter? Absolutely. Pair with a greaser-style moto for a cosmopolitan touch.

Shop the look:

Coat, T-shirt, Skirt, Bag
