The Most Authentically Inspiring Street Style From New York

Photographed by Victoria Adamson.
By now, we’re all very familiar with the scene outside the shows at Fashion Week: street-style stars, bloggers, and industry folk exit their vehicles and subway stations and gear up to walk their own version of the runway — the stretch of pavement that stands between them and the show inside. Outfits are carefully displayed, hair is artfully rearranged, the off-duty models and It girls strike "Who me?" poses, and cameras click, click, click around them.

At this point, it’s hard to know whether attendees are truly dressing for themselves or for the photographers who lie in wait (most likely: it's a combination of both).

But we still feel that street style moments are worth capturing — especially those that feel authentic, unique, and just the right amount aspirational. We’ll always eagerly refresh our Instagram feeds to see just how many times a blogger changes outfits in one day, or what outrageous ensemble Anna Dello Russo will wear next. There’s also something irresistible about keeping up with the looks that enter and exit the show venues — and we are always on the lookout for new style inspiration.
