Below-Freezing NYC Street Style That's Still Fire

Photographed by Victoria Adamson.
It seems like the recent days of peacocking are over, and the even more recent days of normcore are through, too. Fashion Week attendees seem to have settled into a happy place where their outfits are inspired, but not performance art. Ladies can walk without tottering, but also without having to make a deliberate statement about the orthopedic nature of their comfort-fit sandals. It's real clothes on women with real jobs to do, and when you throw a cold snap into the mix of it, the combinations get even more interesting.

After oscillating between two very different poles with two very similar goals ("Look at me!"), New York Fashion Week street style has finally found its groove. Click through to see all the women who've made street style feel refreshing once again.
