Dust off your Western boots, get acquainted with a trouser suit, and don't pack away your floral summer dresses quite yet. At New York Fashion Week thus far, the chicest of the pack have been out and about turning the pavements into a new-trend party of sorts. However, as the days have passed, I've introduced a kind of filter on what I look at and what I want to share with you: from hundreds of thousands of street style looks, I'm really being picky and asking myself, "Can you wear this back home?" or "Does this work on the subway?" Because wild ensembles are all well and good to pore over, but the sidewalks are supposed to be where tangible inspo comes from. The see-through dresses are out; the office-friendly midis are in.
The mood is truly autumnal out in NYC, so attendees are finding clever ways to start referencing the season without overheating in coats, chunky knits, and tights. Sounds like some pretty timely inspiration for everyone. Keep scrolling to see the best street style looks from NYFW. Check back often, as we'll be updating the gallery throughout the week.
