INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
NYFW STREET STYLE ROUND-UP
By Eleanor Dunne, February 12, 2019
There have been a lot of major runway moments this New York Fashion Week, from Tomo Koizumi’s fantastical organza dresses to Eckhaus Latta’s beaded-knitwear melange (which were accompanied by UGG mules, natch). Plus, the NYC sidewalks have been serving some seriously good style moments. We're talking everything from bold suiting to slick accessories — so, without further ado, here are six looks that caught our attention over the last few days...
Tailoring continues to be big this season and it's still a showgoer favorite. There were plenty of classic tweeds and pared-back whites, but Harper’s Bazaar Editor Chrissy Rutherford and her scarlet ensemble stood out against the gray New York backdrop. Patent boots, skinny sunglasses and a sleek up-do add an edge.
Blogger Evangelie Smyrniotaki puts a cool spin on the utility trend with this look. She takes an oversized, boxy Alexander Wang shirt, buttons it up to the top and cinches in the waist with a belt, then pairing it with laidback sweat pants. Point-toe booties gives it a grown-up touch and those visors are a slick futuristic finish. So good.
The Chanel show isn’t until Paris Fashion Week in March, but we don’t have to wait until then for some Parisian chic 'fits. This street styler’s tweed suit and white turtleneck channels that sophisticated French vibe. As if it wasn’t cute enough, she adds a beret for that touch of je ne sais quoi.
OK, so the fanny pack/crossbody sitch is getting a sleeker update for FW19. Sporty styles are still a go, but for a more polished moment, a leather-look option is just the ticket. Prepare to see Caro Daour’s Fendi version and its detachable belt a lot over the next few weeks.
Toned-down brown shades took centerstage this season, with tonal looks in earth tones galore. This street styler went for a so-2019 satin terracotta dress and layered it over a turtleneck (note: this is how to wear your fancier frock now). As if two browns weren't enough, she added mahogany slouch boots. Just beautiful.
