One of the most exciting fashion seasons of the year? When the runway shows resume. Not only do designers unveil their new collections at the shows, but the best dressed celebrities, editors, buyers, and influencers go as well, bringing their freshest outfits to the street style scene. I witnessed a new set of looks and trends develop at New York Fashion Week that will help define what people will wear in the coming months.
So, what are the notable street style trends worth shopping for right now? Insiders wore some of the season’s greatest trends, from edgy leather skirts and flight jackets to ballerina flats and maxi hemlines, in the cool, casual way we always see style emerge on New York’s streets. Shop the eight big trends I observed during fashion week that I can’t wait to put to the test.
Slouchy pants are a trend that continues to be polished and dressed in new ways season after season. If you only buy one tailored item for fall, make it a pair of pleated black pants with a relaxed fit.
As previously stated, there is always enough of amazing denim in NYC. Aside from midi skirts, fashion insiders are experimenting with layering. There are so many great ways to outfit denim-on-denim combinations, from denim shirts with matching trousers to shackets with skirts.
There’s no denying that flight jackets are making a comeback for fall, and Laura Harrier has recently unveiled a smart, low-key way to wear them. Simply add a white tank top, sloppy low-rise jeans, and a classic leather belt to complete the look.
Denim Midi Skirts
Denim is usually popular on the New York Fashion Week street style scene. One way we’re seeing this for the fall? Midi denim skirts The shape is modern and adaptable for transitional wear. Wear it now with a strapless top and heels, then change it up with knee-high boots and a sweater in the coming months.
I’m seeing more coloured bags on the street style scene, as opposed to neutrals. This style was also noticeable in the accessories realm, from Prada’s airbrushed Supernova bag carried by Who What Wear editor Eliza Huber to suede slouchy bags.
