NYFW Street Style: Pretty in Patchwork

Persons of Interest, Street Style  /   /  By Sarah Wetmore

There’s so much we love about this New York Fashion Week street style outfit, it’s hard for us to decide where to begin. Suppose we save the best for last and deconstruct this outfit from head to toe, shall we?

A YSL shirt is neatly layered underneath a Stutterheim Stockholm Dusty Pink raincoat. (We’re really going to need a chic raincoat made of the finest craftsmanship if all these El Niño rumors prove true.) Next up is a pair of awkward length flared denim, which we’re loving. So long skinnies, hello ankle-baring trousers. We’ve been preaching the culotte gospel since May, so yes, we’re ready to fly our flood flags and wave them proudly this season as denim hems rise and ankles take center stage. In addition to the cutting edge length seen here, did you notice the next level of denim destruction going on? A trio of legitimately vintage patches herald the arrival of the “rip and repair” denim trend we can’t wait to try for ourselves. Another nod to ‘70s-inspired rock and roll style? We think yes.

While you hunt for just the right way to express yourself via embroidery, why not choose an Anya Hindmarch Vaughan cross-body bag to hold your growing patch collection? (Read more on Hindmarch here.) This stunning bucket bag features an embossed No Smoking graphic to advance the patchwork motif threaded throughout this outfit. And finally, the pièce de résistance: a pair of color coordinated pink and green bowling shoes. Because why settle for a strike when you can score a full-on turkey (that’s three strikes bowled in a row!)? These two-toned tappers are used to pull this entire outfit together in a way that only a true street style star can—with originality and effortless cool reigning supreme.
