I can’t believe the long weekend is almost over! There was plenty of relaxation time & unwinding in San Diego – it was much needed. I feel re-energized & ready to take on the week (also ready to eat normal food and hit the gym hard given what I’ve consumed the last few days #vacadietproblems). As much as I love traveling, it was too much this month. I’m looking forward to staying put for a while…need to get my personal life in order (do I need to do my taxes yet?).
During my weekend down time, I took the time to peruse the highlights from NYFW. My favorite part of fashion month is not only getting inspiration from the runway, but scoping out the street style scene. I want to know what the hottest trends are and keep them in mind as I shop for new spring pieces. Obviously, these trends aren’t for everyone, but I enjoy seeing what’s out there and putting my own spin to it. Given the snow storm in NYC during fashion week, I was especially curious how the fashionistas would improvise their outfits.
I’ve recapped 5 major trends I’ve seen among NYFW street style stars, and put together a few pieces you can shop under each trend. I’m loving the sporty looks and fun plays on color & fabrics!
PS – In case you need more inspo, here’s my street style breakdown for NYFW Spring 2017.
PPS – I hope it’s still 70s in Chicago by the time I arrive!
One thing I was doing on vaca last week, outside of beachin’ & stuffing my face, was checking my fav fashion blogs and Insta handles to get updates on New York Fashion Week. The shows are great, sure, but I enjoy perusing the street style looks just as much (if not more). Amidst the expected trends (think Gucci overload, sneakers galore, off-shoulder/cold-shoulder, distressed & cropped denim), there were a few less obvious trends that surfaced. These may not all be “new” per se, but I expect for these trends to shift from fashionista to mainstream within the next season. Get on them while you can!
I’ve spent the week stalking my favorite bloggers on Instagram, scrolling through my feed in envy as they posted pics of their NYFW excursions. It’s been fun seeing the latest & greatest trends make their appearance on the runway…from nudes to mixed prints, plaids, stripes reinvented, buckles galore, and a twist on sleepwear (that’s right, I’m referring to PJs – it’s now acceptable to wear them in public, kind of). Aside from the shows, the other element of fashion week that I love is the street style – what are real people actually wearing? Here are some of my favorite street style looks from this week in NYC.
