Since New York Fashion Week has come and gone, it’s time to reflect on the edgy street style New York had to offer this season. My absolute favourite part about fashion weeks around the world, and especially when it comes to NYFW, is the street style. One thing is for sure, New York knows how to bring it. Outerwear and layering were key factors in nailing your street style game during NYFW where street style is no joke — even the snow, sleet, slush, and the wind can’t stop the people of New York from bringing their A-game to the streets. From camouflage to kitten heels and puffer jackets, New York’s style is still as cool and sophisticated as ever.
It seems like camouflage is equally on the runway — from Yeezy Season 5 and Coach to Alice + Olivia — and on the streets of New York. But it still speaks volumes and is sure to make you stand out.
New York brought a more chill and relaxed vibe to the classic trench. A hint of layering and cuffed sleeves gives a disheveled yet sophisticated look.
Kitten heels were popping up all over the streets. Pairing them with denim is the perfect way to achieve a balanced chill and feminine look.
The go-to way to stay warm during NYFW was definitely the puffer jacket. It was hard to keep track of just how many there were. Regardless what you think about puffers, oversized puffers are statements that keep you warm.
Shades of Yellow
There were more yellow on the streets of New York than the usual flow of taxi cabs flowing through. From bright jackets and purses to more subtle yellow accessories like yellow-tinted sunglasses, the yellow accent was a favourite during this season.
The shearling lined jacket was seen left, right, and center on those who were braving the cold during NYFW. It’s the epitome of warm, badass outerwear. If you’re not into the idea of a full fur coat, this is a happy medium. A classic and fashionable look but with a little more edge.
Crowds turned to plaid in all different shapes, styles, and colours. Pairing it with anything and everything, New York brought out the classic in its quintessentially unique ways.
Nothing says winter is here like fur and the faux-fur game was definitely strong this season. It dominated the street style runway in a variety of styles, colors, and cuts.
