New York Fashion Week's Best Street Style Moments Include A Lot Of Neutral Tones
New York Fashion Week is in full swing and with the chilly, brisk temperatures that miraculously hit over the past few days, influencers, editors, and buyers have been bringing out their best fall pieces and strutting them down Varick Street, where most of the shows are held in the Big Apple. And because of the refreshingly nice weather, New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020's best street style is a seriously chic display of chic leather, luscious silk, and everything in between.
Last season, a whole lot of tie-dye and bright, bold colors dominated the streets. But this time around, there seems to be a noticeable sartorial shift into more neutral, warm tones. That's not to say vivid shades haven't already made an appearance, but many of the neon hues that were everywhere last February have been replaced with tans, beiges, and browns. Pattern-wise, animal prints are still going strong, and — perhaps as a display of excitement for the cooler weather ahead — both plaid and leather have come out to play. Lastly, for accessories, the more structured, the better. Everything from Bottega Veneta's square-toe sandals to Chanel's more classic bag silhouettes have been in heavy rotation.
