New York Fashion Week is here! With shows in person, we will be getting our fashion week’s serving of streetwear looks to inspire us. After a long time of remote fashion shows viewed from home in PJs and sweat sets, it is refreshing to catch up on our favourite streetwear looks seen at NYFW 2021 so far:
Kim Petras stepped out in this bold look for the Christian Siriano show during NYFW. This purple mini dress is elevated with an oversized, draped feather boa top. The predominant rich purple adds luxury to the look, and with the overwhelming feathers surrounding Kim, this outfit definitely complements the bold colours of Siriano’s opening runway.
Lil’ Kim also got the memo for big and bold with this black and red mini dress featuring numerous fabric roses. Red and black is a classy combination for Autumn, especially when contrasting textures and an interesting silhouette are added.
Head-to-toe denim is back, according to Kehlani. She revamps typical jean fabric with a bleached denim shirt of various blue hues and oversized, baggy blue jeans. Kehlani’s chunky, layered chains are another nice touch to match the various clasps, zips, and buttons of the denim fabrics.
Kylie arrived to support Revolve in this bold look showing her baby bump proudly. The floor-length, bright orange coat is a statement piece, paired with a simple cropped t-shirt and low-waisted black jeans, nothing obscures the vibrancy of a loud trench coat.
Bella Hadid wore a strappy, cut-out dress whilst celebrating fashion week. Interestingly, she styled the dress with formal, plaid trousers, perhaps this is the next 2000s trend to return? Bella pairs the look with a mini crystal bag and a simple pair of black glasses.
Irina Shayk attended the Bvlgari party in the stunning pairing of a shining, orange corset constructed by LaQuan Smith and loose camo pants from The Attico. The structured, stiff bright orange fabric contrasts the earth tones of the camo trousers which have a baggy silhouette.
Jhené Aiko wore this cute, polka-dot outfit from Prabal Gurung. The black mini dress contrasts the predominant white of the bodysuit to create an interesting visual look.
Bretman Rock is becoming an icon of streetwear and this look is no different. This outfit is chic and elegant, the dark suit naturally keeps it minimal, but the interesting shirt elevates the simple silhouette with the bold red colour cascading across one side to create an asymmetrical jacket.
Ashley incorporates chunky, industrial black platform boots with a softer, delicate floral dress to create this perfectly chic, vintage look. Ashley’s look exemplifies how to style vintage pieces along with current trends to create a balanced look of contrasting decades.
After only a few days, NYFW is already giving us inspiring looks! Current shows and stylish attendees will definitely cause a few trends to stir as we enter Autumn so keep an eye out for what to wear at the NYFW.
