During Fashion Month (which starts with NYFW and ends four weeks later in Paris), the real show is on the streets. Between presentations, stylists, bloggers, and editors use the sidewalks as their personal runways to strut their style and set the trends. This year, New York’s moody weather certainly didn’t stop attendees from bringing their A-game. Despite the snow, rain, and slush—the street style was better than ever. From the rise of mustard yellow to the importance of statement tees, here’s everything you need to know in 8 killer outfits.
1. Seeing Red
Red is the color of the season. And we saw it worn two ways we love. You can wear it boldly, with a monochrome look in multiple shades of the red. Or, use it as an accent color, with a bright bag or a killer red jacket. No matter how you rock it, you’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd.
2. Hoods Up
A few years ago, you wouldn’t be caught dead showing up to fashion week in a hoodie. But now all the cool kids are rolling up in their comfiest attire. Bloggers like Daniel Bernstein of WeWoreWhat layered her hoodie under a structured blazer. We love this look with a pair of high platforms to dress it up while keeping your cool.
3. Feminist Chic
With the recent political turmoil, fashionistas are using their style as a platform to share their opinions. We spotted a ton of NYFW attendees making a statement with politically-charged slogan tees à la Dior.
4. Rosé All Day
On a related note, rose-colored glasses are popular this season—tinted shades took over the streets of NYFW. Pair ’em with a fun coat and baggy denim for a supercool look. We also love it with a layered rock tee and turtleneck combo—another trend from the streets of New York.
5. Yes to Yellow
Love it or hate it, mustard is a favorite this season. We spotted girls in head-to-toe variations of dark yellow. Because the color is so strong, it’s best paired with simpler pieces like a classic bomber and killer flares.
6. Feeling Fishy
Suddenly, fishnets are everywhere. Influencers are wearing ’em under destroyed denim—letting little patches of fishnet peek through the holes. Wear it with a bright puffer jacket draped off your shoulders.
7. Oh, Baby
Baby blue is making a comeback in the form of monochrome dressing. Fashion gurus like Chiara Ferragni donned this dreamy shade in a top-to-bottom look.
8. Weekend Uniform
Utility jackets are a major player this season. With cropped cuts and embellished detailing, the it crowd is wearing this jacket trend two ways: dressed down, with jeans and a tee. Or, dressed up for a night out with a sexy all-black look.
