INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

STREET-STYLE TAKEAWAYS FROM NYFW FW18

By Maybelle Morgan, February 14, 2018

Yep, it’s that time of year again, where the fashionable masses descend on the world's clothing capitals, all wrapped up in sartorial goodness for some slow-motion pavement crossing and front-row-perching. Here are the best looks we spotted at New York Fashion Week FW18.

Hair fanfare

Why so serious? This season, the show-goers were all about looking on the lighter and brighter side of life, with kitsch and OTT accessories in tow. Our fave was the elementary school-esque crocodile clips pinned into middle-parted hair (the more embellished, rainbow-colored or sequined the better).

Checkmate

Heritage checks dominated last year and are still very much the talk, and walk, of the town. The traditional belted trench gets a souped-up reboot in 2018 with sharp streaks of pink and a glossy plastic finish. Layered over an all-cream-everything outfit, with magenta socks peeking out underneath the mom jean turn-ups, what we’ve got here is a classic-meets-cool style situation.

Rain or shine

Speaking of plastic, the much-anticipated Blade Runner reboot made the squeaky stuff — and all things futuristic — a priority once again. But instead of the clear window-pane look, the show-goers stopped traffic with siren reds and printed styles in boxy Scandi trenches. Then, colour coordination and trend-led detailing (check those Western boots) upped the fun factor.

Utility belt

Ah, utility. Functional and fuss-free, we love you for your Scandi leanings and minimal silhouettes. Caroline Daur put utility dressing back on the map for FW18, with a head-to-toe tailored outfit. A cropped olive green leather jacket with all the boxy trimmings was paired with crisp tapered pants and finished off with chunky Timberland boots. A fanny pack slung across the body then added a cool-casj element.

Cozy and it knows it

Borg, shearling and anything moderately cozy dominated our wardrobes last year — and the FW18 street-style pack let it be known that it wasn’t going anywhere for fashion month. The teddy fur looked best in bright reds/corals, as well as oversized and on top of snug layers like turtleneck knits and flannel shirts.
