Every Fashion Week the streets of New York are transformed into its very own catwalk. The most inspirational fashion looks are not limited to those in the shows, with some of the best coming from the attendees and afterparties. With this in mind, here are some streetstyle moments from NYFW that you do not want to miss.
Emily Ratajkowski attended the off-schedule Marc Jacobs show in an archival look from the designer’s 2014 Autumn/Winter collection. The monochromatic brown look played with texture from the sheer V-neck top to the jacket’s fur collar. She paired the look with a dramatic bob-haircut with a full-fringe that elevated the already chic look even further.
Julia Fox is quickly becoming everyone’s favourite for streetstyle looks. Whether she’s doing her weekly shop in her underwear and knee-high denim boots or using duct tape as a top, Julia Fox always provides a daring look, no matter the occasion. And if those are the outfits that Julia wears when running errands then you can only imagine what she pulls out of the bag for Fashion Week. Fox attended the Seks NYFW party in a full leather look from the brand. The black belted micro-mini was paired with an orange crop-top and leather jacket with elaborate feather trim. The look was topped off with a grey hair look with provided a cool contrast to the orange details in the outfit.
Ice Spice made her New York Fashion Week front row debut at the Dion Lee show this week and she definitely earned her place. Wearing a full lace look with Dion Lee’s signature cut-outs, this was the first of her many ‘best dressed’-worthy moments. She paired the modern outfit with a sleek old Hollywood glamour inspired hairdo, a styling decision that perfectly blended two aesthetic binaries.
This New York Fashion Week Camila Mendes took the ‘no-pants’ trend to the catwalk. Styled by Molly Dickson (@mollyddickson) Cami attended the Coach show in an oversized leather jacket with black high-waisted underwear and a bralette underneath. The look was accessorised with a pair of studded loafers and a bag. The decision to accessorise the look so simply served to emphasise the lack of outfit, creating an effortless yet intentional feel to the look. All in all, Cami Mendes really proved that less actually is more.
Aweng Chuol attended the RTA x FWRD dinner in a blue Jacquemus dress with an abundance of cut-outs. The slinky knotted dress was paired perfectly with some chunky gold jewellery and sleek black accessories. At times throughout the night Aweng paired the look with a brown fur duster coat that exuded elegance.
Amelia Gray Hamlin
Amelia Gray Hamlin also attended the RTA X FWRD dinner, she however opted for a much more gothic look for the appearance. She paired her black maxi dress with sheer tights and barely-there heels. In fact, the only non-black element of her look was the large silver cross around her neck.
Julia Fox (again)
This would not be a NYFW Streetstyle article without at least two Julia Fox looks in the conversation, and so here she is again. This time Julia was sitting front row at the Dion Lee show, a fashion pairing made in heaven. Julia’s grey hair was the perfect accessory to her edgy look for the fashion brand. Her heavily zipped leather skirt was paired with a matching jacket that starkly contrasted her hyper-feminine feathered heels. However, what stole the show was her explicit graphic tee that read “Starf*cker”, just when we thought she couldn’t get any more iconic.
Ice Spice and Lil Nas X
The duo that we never knew we needed; Lil Nas X and Ice Spice sat front row at the Coach AW23 show and all eyes were on them. Lil Nas wore a Valentine’s inspired ensemble pairing a vibrant red shearling jacket with a pink turtleneck, distressed jeans, red boots and a bag to match. Ice Spice, however, went down the preppy route wearing a varsity inspired A-line dress that contrasted her extravagant diamond chain.
Leonie Hanne brought all of the drama to the Prabal Gurung show this NYFW. If the show stopping strapless SS23 fuchsia and black Guipure Lace mini dress wasn’t enough, Hanne matched the look with a dramatic pink scarf that wrapped over her hair and then flowed freely behind her. The look was topped off with sheer coloured tights, tulle heels and a simple black bag.
Charli XCX performed at the Saks NYFW Party in an enviable double-denim look from Ludovic de Saint Sernin. She paired the monogrammed lace-up dress with a matching denim racer jacket and knee-high combat boots. She accessorised with a black crescent bag and some futuristic sunglasses to make the perfect ‘New York party girl’ look.
