25 Snaps Of The Subway's Most Stylish Commuters

Photographed by Jacqueline Harriet.
Temperatures have officially begun to drop — and we're heading underground. The New York City subway may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of fashion, but it turns out your morning commute is actually jam-packed with style inspiration.
In the wee hours of the morning (when most subway riders are moaning and groaning, headphones on, coffee in tow), we snapped 17 New Yorkers who take their commuter style very seriously — women who rock everything from patterned capes to vintage digs to bright, oversized coats. The train platform is officially the new runway, and our morning trek to work has never looked so good.
