While I love catching all the shows when fashion month rolls around, I’ve got to admit that I get just as excited to see the looks on the street style scene. It’s a place to see style IRL, and fashion girls always bring their chicest outfits, never failing to disappoint. Perhaps the best part is seeing what’s cool in fashion right now, interpreted by some serious tastemakers. And instead of wild looks that only work for a runway, they showcase how to wear some of the biggest trends of the moment but make them work for their personal style. Here, see trends like colored tights, plastic bags, and “dad” sneakers that are catching our eye.
Tights in every shade from purple to red to white are ruling both the street style scene as well the runways.
