The Affordable Street Style Trend That Dominated NYFW

As I write this on what is actually the last day of New York Fashion Week, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m still trying to wrap my head around all the trends I saw both on and off the runways. As always, however, there were some that were so prevalent, it was clear early on that they were not just ubiquitous but important.

One such trend was the nod to utility-inspired colors and details that I spotted on more street style stars and showgoers than I could count. From belted blazers, skirts, and pants to all sorts of items in creams, khaki, and all other neutrals, the inspiration was endless. Luckily, when it comes to shopping, so are the options. Thanks to our very own Who What Wear collection, you can actually shop a handful of pieces that not only come in a range of sizes but are all available for less than a cool $50. To see the looks that inspired me for yourself and, of course, do some shopping along the way, just keep scrolling.

You can never go wrong with an all-neutral look—especially when you stick to a light color pallette.
