New York Fashion Week Is Back, And IRL — Here’s All The Best Street Style So Far
Frances Solá-Santiago & Eliza Huber
Fashion month has officially kicked off in New York City. And for the first time since the pandemic reared its nasty head, the fashionable folk have descended on the streets of the Big Apple to parade from show to show in their finest 'fits. Of course, they’re all carrying the season’s hottest accessory: a vaccination card.
It’s also a moment for the biggest trends of summer and fall that we've been ogling online and fantasizing about to finally come out to play.
Outside the shows, Y2K-inspired low-rise jeans, tube tops, and cut-outs helped attendees battle unseasonably high temperatures, as did a plethora of mesh dresses, barely-there crop tops, and subversive basics. Still, fall vibes came to the party, courtesy of cowboy and rain boots perfect for stomping around the city.
The week is just getting started, but the new wave of fashion is already reviving our quarantine-wearied selves. Below is a selection of the most notable next big things, hopefully coming soon to a streetscape near you.
