6 Outfit Ideas To Take From Street Style At New York Fashion Week

When the biannual event of New York Fashion week rolls around, it’s the showcasing of new collections from some of the industry’s most prominent brands that fashion enthusiasts come for. But as street style becomes an increasingly mega phenomenon, many of us can’t wait to continue digesting the looks from attendees well after the shows are over. Runways are one thing, but there’s no better place to pull style inspiration from than functionally-styled ensembles that are already out in the streets.

While Spring 2023 shows commenced on the runway, celebrities, editors, and other industry professionals alike hustled two and fro in their best fall getups. New York Fashion Week is known for its eclectic street style, but a number of trends were spotted that can be easily recreated at home. Luckily, they come just in time for getting your fall wardrobe lined up. Ahead, see 6 street style trends that were hard to miss during New York Fashion Week and the key pieces you need to recreate them yourself. 

1. Staples With An Edge

These days, the best minimalist looks come with a twist. Think a heightened, slightly more fashion-forward version of styles you’d use to create a capsule wardrobe — Jeans with statement stitching, neutral-toned dresses with mixed textures, and shoes that come with funky silhouettes yet can be worn with anything. To get this look at home, grab a maxi dress with stand-out details by way of cut-outs, ruches, or pleats, and a pair of edgy but sleek boots. 

2. Put On Your Denim Suit

Street style at Copenhagen Fashion Week let on that denim on denim was set to be a major trend this fall, and a number of denim tuxedos dotted the streets of New York during NYFW to render the trend pretty much confirmed. This time around, go beyond the average jeans and jacket when trying out the look with a puffed sleeve top and ultra-flared bottoms. 

3. Fall Neons

The fashion collective has been on a bit of a maximalism kick since coming out on the other side of the peak of the pandemic. For fall, that means trading out traditional hues such as burgundies and greys for brighter, mood-boosting colors by way of neon sweaters and other bright-colored warm weather accessories (after all, it’ll keep you cozy all the same). 

4. The Sandal Trick

As fun as it is to style boots, any sandal lover can relate to never really wanting to put your favorite open-toed styles away for too long. One of the season’s biggest accessorizing trends makes a case for a solution — socks. The counterintuitive styling technique is proven to be a chic way to dress up any outfit, adding a twist that feels part prep, part sport. The easy but effective trick can help lend an element of interest to otherwise simple outfits such as a pleated skirt with a vest tank. 

5. Cool Corduroy

A number of nostalgic trends have found their way back to the forefront thanks to the ongoing Y2K resurgence, and corduroy is the latest on the lineup. You may not remember corduroy as the most fashionable part of your adolescent wardrobe, but it had much more of a cool-girl presence among the attendees of the shows at New York Fashion Week. Update your blazer collection with a corduroy option (they elevate and polish up any look), and style it with a mink skirt to keep the look playful. 

6. Matrix Mode

Black on black is no novel sartorial pairing, but as with everything else, the approach to styling it for New York Fashion Week often came with a little something extra. As of late, black on black for the fashion girl comes with a futuristic and edgy, Matrix-esque flare. Think second-skin one-pieces, leather jackets, and, always, pointed boots.
