Outfits of New York

I tried guys, I really tried. I did my best to narrow down the street style looks of New York fashion week, I wanted to limit them to something like 50 so that I can make the post “50 best looks of NYFW” but I couldn’t and you’ll understand why when you see the following 135 (yes, hundred and thirty five) looks. I couldn’t leave any of them out. In my defense though, there were around 500 so I still call this a triumph. (To check them all, head over to my pinterest.) Trends to take note of: FURS (capitalized, it was that big), all grey, all neutrals, turtlenecks under everything, midi knit dresses paired with oversized coats and flats, long assymetrical sweaters over tapered pants and finally bare legs, if you dare.

Don’t get me wrong; usually I’m bundled up in my down coat, face unrecognizable under a huge scarf and beanie & sliding on ice with my warmest winter boots but at least, as uncomfortable as it is, I know how to look (as) chic (as possible) if necessary. First things first: anything faux is your enemy. I know the moral burden of wearing real fur and leather, but if you don’t want the real thing then just go with wool, mohair wool or down coats. Faux fur, faux leather or anything plastic will just make you feel colder. Second: keeping in mind that you have to wear several layers, choose your outer coat an oversize shape or at least buy one size …
