The real fashion show is on the street
At New York Fashion Week, the real show isn’t on the runway, but right outside. As the week comes to an end, it’s time to review some of the hottest trends seen on the street.
As editors, bloggers and stylists make their way to each show, they make statements, turn heads or even look like clowns. It’s often more entertaining to watch the people that attend the events than the women who walk the runways.
Diego Zuko, a photographer for Harper’s Bazaar, braved New York’s winter chill to capture some of the finest moments of street style. Olivia Palermo and Anna Wintour are among street style’s usual suspects, but Zuko also captured lesser known women who are making just as much of an impact.
The ease yet sophistication that is shown by wearing an oversized wool coat, cropped denim and oxfords can be mimicked without spending a fortune.
The flared pant was a common sight for street style photographers this week. Women channeled the 1970s with a dramatic bell-bottoms in a variety of mediums, including denim, silk, and wool.
These two women adorned dark lensed sunglasses and loose curls to compliment their looks – one in a structured coat atop knee-high boots meeting a layered skirt, and the other in a light blue jumpsuit and fur jacket finished off with white sneakers.
With such a fashion forward student body, you can recreate these looks on campus. You may not be hitting the streets of New York, but make the Boulevard your street style runway. Pretend a crisp breeze is blowing through your hair and photographers are mesmerized by your style.
