New York Fashion Week kickstarted Fashion Month in an incredible way, not that we would expect anything less. Despite the dreary weather the street style that took to the city did not disappoint so we’ve selected a few of our favourite looks that not only made an umbrella look stylish but illustrated personal and on-trend styles.
Bright pink hues and daring reds clashed intensely as Shiona Turini, freelance fashion editor and stylist, sported this electric colour pallet on her way to the Kate Spade show. The feminine, scarlet red two-piece that featured a mid-length pleated skirt was enhanced by a plastic pink button-down trench coat that reminds us of the floral inspired tones that come around each Springtime. The rolled-up sleeves and neon Prada flame heels adorn a unique and playful look that stood apart from the typical Autumnal styles. The coordinated look was enriched through her jewelled Kate Space clutch that illuminated the outfit all the more.
This green and black contrasting look that was featured on Tina Prokas’s Instagram under her blog name ‘Styled Destination’ displayed an intriguing mix of sports luxe and biker inspired styles. The fashion blogger played with tone by styling a neon green dress from Wardog NYC with an emerald velvet Chanel boy bag, the brass detailing elevated the look giving it a grungy feel. A Yohji Yamamoto black mesh bomber jacket dressed down the look and worked alongside the black, studded biker boots that were deemed very appropriate for a rainy day in NYC.
A background of black umbrellas and a rain coats were scattered behind fashion blogger Aimee Song, a regular attendee to NYFW. She was seen wearing a pair of glossy black snakeskin cowboy boots from Tibi as she made her way to their show. The boots were styled with an oversized camel coat and black cycling shorts that merged the current Instagram-led trend with a classic Autumn/Winter piece. Aimee’s gold pendant necklaces compliment the little Louis Vuitton bag that she swung in her hand as she strolled towards the venue.
