The NYFW Street Style Trend Report

September 19, 2023

NYFW kicks off fashion month, often with the warmest temps - perfect style inspiration for our warming weather! This season we noticed an overall effortless style centering on key wardrobe essentials.

1. Relaxed Shirting

During New York Fashion Week classic cotton shirts proved to be a versatile and favoured choice.

The versatility of a shirt is almost unmatched - cropped or oversized, brightly coloured or classically striped, they pair perfectly with midi skirts for a chic and elegant ensemble, or worn with relaxed denim for a casual yet stylish look.

For a timeless touch with a nod to menswear, opt for vertical stripes. Alternatively, embrace the warmer weather and showcase a midriff-baring cropped design for a more fashion-forward statement.

2. Blazer Edit

Fashion 101: when in doubt, reach for a blazer!
Paired with coordinating pants and a simple t-shirt or nonchalantly thrown over perfect party dresses, a well-tailored blazer in a neutral hue was a go to for the street style crowd at NYFW.

With favourites from Tibi and Blazé Milano gracing the NYC streets, it's easy to be inspired by these day to night outfits that will take you through spring in style.

3. All About Denim

Denim always reigns. From wide-legs jeans to midi skirts and oversized jackets, designer denim took centre stage on the streets at NYFW.

Paired with brightly coloured knitwear and sleek sandals, low slung and baggy jeans were an absolute standout.

And of course, teamed with a cropped cardigan or relaxed shirting, the moment of the denim midi skirt continues. Choose between light and mid blue, black and cream all in store now.

4. Total White Out

We've never agreed with the 'no white after Labour Day' rule favoured in the States, and loved seeing so many whites and creams during NYFW.

From cotton mini dresses seen on Eva Chen to coordinating suiting, bright whites and soft creams were definitely having a moment on the streets.

Perfect for the warm weather, our edit of striking white pieces will have your spring wardrobe feeling fresh.
