NYFW has kicked off to an impressive start, and I'm not just referring to the runway collections. It's the fabulous street wear that has grabbed the attention of photographers and style lovers everywhere. Models, stylists, socialites, fashion editors and bloggers stepped out in their best end-of-summer outfits to great acclaim. My hat goes off to all the stylishly chic bloggers in this mix of street style looks. Bravo Ladies! You have outdone yourselves!
Vibrant, jazzy prints made a splash on the sidewalks of NYC, accented with bright accessories. A hot pink oversized blazer balances out the electric green printed top and trousers in the first look. Tamara Kalinic (pictured middle) of the blog 'Glam and Glitter' stands out in a unique scene printed Topshop pencil skirt, yellow blazer and cropped top, paired with cobalt blue Louboutin heels and a Proenza Schouler bag. Blogger Ella Catliff (right) is prettily printed in a cerise pink floral Kate Spade frock and lime green Michael Kors bag.
Swish skirts are given an edge with grunge styling in the form of leather moto jackets and checkered shirts. A statement bag polishes off this trendy theme. I like the integration of an elegant skirt with more masculine styling. I have a serious crush on the bejeweled sweater, leather skirt and bright magenta bag in the middle look.
Black & White
The trend that never ends and remains eternally chic is black and white. These are some marvelous versions of monotones by models and bloggers alike. An off-duty model (left) is spotted in an uber popular pair of black skorts, paired with a cable knit sweater, leather sandals and a Celine bag. A pop of red adds some pizazz, as Aimee Song (pictured second) does with a clutch to her chic grid-print ensemble. Chiara Ferragni's slick white jumpsuit is supplemented by a tailored black blazer in the third outfit.
Romance finds it's place on the pavements of NYC with a range of beautifully feminine looks. Pretty floral prints enhance the theme. The graceful pastel pink and black kaftan dress is a stunning summer look (left). Tamara Kalinic's cream lace Zara shirt and blush midi skirt is styled with Valentino studded pumps and a Mulberry bag (pictured second). A bright green clutch and blue shoes style a colourfully painted dress (third look). The last outfit is a savvy mix of florals in two different shades that come together with finesse.
Minimalism and modernity meet in these sophisticated ensembles that demonstrate the various ways to wear a cropped top. Throw on an oversized blazer and lounge trousers, pair it with an impeccably tailored midi skirt or wear it with neatly striped shorts and leather loafers.
Stealing the scene were bright hues, animated by distinctive styling. Stylist Ana Ziourova stunned in a red and black pleated one-strap dress by Jason Wu. Bora Park radiated impeccable taste in an apricot Asos top, navy skater skirt, striped Reed Krakoff heels and a dazzling necklace. The third look sees a cool 90's influence with a slouchy high-waisted green pants and a denim jacket, enhanced by striking gold shoes. I like the playfulness of the bright orange shorts and cobalt blue blouse in the last look.
This voguish group of fashionistas picked out their outfits in neutral camel and coffee tones. A spot of leopard print does the trick in the first and third contemporary looks. A fabulous Burberry trench (pictured second) with metallic pockets and see-through sleeves is the ideal fashion week cover-up as seen on Chiara Ferragni. The last striped dress wonderfully combines peach, brown and black in a demure design with a Louis Vuitton bag in tow.
