What to wear now, hot off the fall runways.
Glossy finishes had a lustrous moment on the runways at NYFW in polished getups made for the urban dweller with a bold but low-key brand of sleek, downtown cool. All this shine couldn't be contained to the catwalk. In a synthesis of uptown and downtown essentials, the city-slick look was seen on everything from articulated cuts and functional outerwear to gathered volume on some seriously swoon-worthy pieces.
CHECK IT OUT
One thing is for certain: it's a plaid, plaid world out there—and New York's street-style scene was in a tizzy over it. The love for the heritage pattern was seen all over the concrete jungle during NYFW, proving that the classic has been reimagined into a modern hit. We saw checks, tartans and plaids of all strokes find new life in directional looks like languid layers, puffed-up volume and teensy lengths.
One major piece from each of the four capitals of style.
NEW YORK: THE BUCKET HAT
The It hat that covers a bad-hair day, blocks UV rays and looks effortlessly chic on anyone? Call us infatuated—or even enamored. This stylish head topper made its glorious return from the heyday of the '90s and graced us with its simple, one-size-fits-all ease in NYFW street style. Put on a classic black bucket hat—like this one from Prada—for an everyday go-to, or grab one in a mash-up of textures for a playful, street-approved update.
The freshest looks from backstage and beyond.
A lofty, light-filled locale and layers of lush texture marked the '70s-inflected showing from French fashion house Longchamp. Doubled-over turtlenecks and deftly wrapped silk scarves put the focus on a healthy flush and high-impact matte lips—equal parts cozy ski bunny and chic sidewalk stalker. Balance the fiery coral and red hues with gently smudged liner in charcoal. Hair was low fuss; this is undoubtedly a woman on the move.
