NYFW STREET STYLE

My heart breaks a little knowing that New York Fashion Week is over, but it picks right back up when I remember we still have London, Milan, and Paris to go! As much as I adore fawning over the creativity that goes into creating the looks that make it down the runway, I've always felt that street style is a bit more authentic. I love seeing people interpret trends in different ways, and observing how they make it work into their own aesthetic. Runway has a tendency to feel a bit distant from the average consumer, but seeing variations of extravagant runway looks on "regular" people makes the styles feel more within reach.

I adore the contrast between the rock n' roll edge of the top layering combination down to the glittery heel. The combination of a sparkly turtleneck and a glitzy heel can leave you feeling a little overly preppy, but I love the way this look is roughed up a bit with a band tee, loose jeans, and a casual suede clutch. The bright red belt scarf really sets the look off.

How darling is this monochromatic look? Sticking to a single color scheme can lead to disastrous clashing if not executed properly, but adding texture and complementary details makes this look polished, not lazy.

Wide leg trousers are making a comeback, and I'm fully behind the immersion of the style into denim. They're comfortable, flattering, and when paired with a drape-y patterned button down, just the right amount of sexy. The pointed toe on the shoe perfectly contrasts the shapelessness of the pants, and the light basket-like handbag softens up the entire look.

Good news, shapeless & oversized no longer translate to just rolling out of bed. When paired with a statement shoe and polished accessories, it's loungewear turned streetwear. The silhouette of this sweatshirt dress is anything but sloppy, and can you imagine how comfortable it is?
