The A-Z Guide To Fashion Week Street-Style Stardom

If you've ever wondered whether people actually wear some of the outfits you see show-goers donning during New York Fashion Week, you may be onto something. For fifty weeks of the year, wearing a six-inch stiletto sandal with a fur coat and a top hat are not just impractical — they're improbable. But, in the age of Instagram, Snapchat, street-style photographers turned media companies, going hard with your outfit during those other two weeks can be more important than going to the shows. While it can be tempting to step out your comfort zone in the hopes of getting photographed, the perfect Fashion Week outfit should actually be polished and practical.

Any Fashion Week vet or experienced street-styler knows that sky-high heels aren't going to cut it for a day of running around town. They plan their outfits for weeks to narrow in on the next big thing, and often focus on footwear that's both statement making and comfortable enough to wear from show to show.

The key to a forward-thinking ensemble is standing out without looking like you tried. So, we've rounded up a few trendy pieces — from A-Z — that are guaranteed to bring you five minutes of stardom come Fashion Week.
