While runways abound with sartorial inspiration as designers unveil their collections during New York Fashion Week, the streets pack quite a dose of creativity and original styling. Watching everyone from celebrities, social media personalities, and industry insiders dress to the nines is also a highlight of the biannual event, creating a double spectacle that gives us plenty to look forward to.
This season was no exception. As designers presented their takes on 2022 dressing, fashion tastemakers turned New York City's streets into their very own runways, eager to introduce the next series of It items with every outing. The best dressed Fashion Week attendees offered fresh ways of styling a colorful array of items for the winter months.
Statement outerwear — from sharp leather jackets to cozy shearling coats — reigned supreme, as showgoers dressed to combat the chilly temperatures. Bold accessories, like vibrant orange bucket hats or green sunglasses, proved winter dressing doesn't have to be understated.
Some guests opted for classic suit separates in neutral shades, while others made a case for colorful dressing in every color of the rainbow: a dark-purple leather corset and pants set; a red-and-pink sequined ensemble; an orange, turquoise, and blue colorblock jacket; a neon-green cutout top; and a multicolored cardigan. Whether you are a maximalist dresser or take a minimalist approach, these looks will energize your fashion choices for this winter and the next.
