The only thing better than the shows of New York Fashion Week are the street styles that surround the seven days of "madness," as they call it. The expertly curated looks of magazine editors, models, style bloggers, and industry professionals alike certainly did not disappoint as they drifted between shows in their Fashion Week best.
The streets of New York were hot last week (we're talking 90 degrees), but the inventive looks showed no signs of meltdown. The tides of street style have changed, and we saw a resurgence in feminine styles and an overall renewed spirit.
A Return to the Feminine //
Goodbye boxy fits, and hello feminine silhouettes! Fashion queen Anna Wintour has always stayed true to her ladylike classics, but we are definitely all about her daughter, Bee Shaffer's, 1940s-inspired frock—did somebody say, The Notebook?
Olive with Envy //
Without a doubt, olive green is the color of the fall. This warm, autumnal color is subtle in it's unassuming sophistication while endlessly versatile due to its muted tone. It's both a neutral and a statement color—an effortlessly chic woman's dream.
The Pleated Skirt Comeback //
This is the trend that simply won't go away, and we're totally okay with that! The pleated midi skirt is going to be a staple for years to come, especially since there was no shortage during last week's Spring/Summer 2017 collections. A flattering length + shimmery fabrics = Verily midi skirt goals.
Pattern Play //
After a long, dreary couple of seasons of monochrome color palettes and white-washed outfits, the street stylers are fighting back in a big way—literally, with neon floral prints, oversized stripes, and color blocking. We're cheering on this joyful trend and hoping it sticks around for at least a few more seasons/forever.
