Street Style at New York Fashion Week

Street style at New York Fashion Week confirmed the city‘s status as a fashion capital.

This year, neutrals—including brown, beige, tan, cream, black and white—were at the forefront of many fashion week goers’ color palettes, showing up in stylish trench coats, over-the-top fur coats and chic blazers as well as roomy utility-style pants.

On the opposite end of the color spectrum, some attendees stepped out wearing fiery red—a color Rihanna recently made all the rage after the “Umbrella” singer’s Super Bowl halftime performance—including an oversized heart-shaped purse, a Chanel caviar shoulder bag with gold hardware, a Prada “cropped convertible down” puffer coat, an off-the-shoulder red long-sleeve top and multicolor, double-waistband jeans. A pop of Barbiecore pink also made an appearance. 

Warmer temperatures, however, led many fashion week goers to don shorter tops. Standout pieces include a navy and beige knitted crop top paired with a matching cropped cardigan and a plain white crop top paired with an abstract striking blue cardigan. In tune with the unseasonably warm weather, many attendees also layered jean jackets over T-shirts.

Straight-leg jeans were one of the main characters on the streets of New York, with attendees showing up in a high-waisted Chanel jean, a purple jean that added a pop of color to the scene and an array of light and dark washes that elevated streetwear looks. Head-to-toe denim looks showed up in a dark-wash jacket-and-jeans combo and a similar medium-wash ensemble as well as a denim shirt French-tucked into wide-leg jeans and topped with a denim duster.

Frayed denim was another main player, with attendees wearing maxi skirts, mid-length skirts, a wide-leg side-slit jean and a cropped jean jacket, all featuring the unfinished treatment.
