Take your fashion inspo tank from empty to full.
New York Fashion Week in February keeps its guests on their toes. Not only do A-listers and fashion it-girlies alike have to contend with packed schedules that have them running from the Upper East Side to Soho to Midtown and back again, but they have to do so in weather that's anything but predictable. In other words, NYFW-goers come prepared to look their best regardless of rain, shine, high winds, or the (unlikely, but still!) chance of snow. But even though NYFW Fall/Winter 2024 street style looks have to be practical enough for New York City winter weather, they don't skimp on style.
Instead, the best NYFW street style 'fits of this season serve classic metropolitan vibes, edgy streetwear inventiveness, and a masterclass in this year's trendiest aesthetics from vampy Mob Wife energy to ultra-femme coquettishness. Ahead, we're rounding up the NYFW street style outfits that give the gift of fashion inspo. Read on for our faves that we'll be adding to throughout the week.
Soft Goth Glam
Lana del Ray's Grammy look reminded us that twee bows and goth-adjacent gloomy style can be a sartorial match made in heaven, a point that Tefi Pesso's dark Marc Jacobs dress and pretty white hair ribbon proved again a the Marc Jacobs show on February 2nd.
Pops of Pink
Celebrity stylists and designers alike have agreed that the colorful tights resurgence is set to stay strong in 2024. At the Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2024 runway show, fashion editor Caroline Vazzana took the trend and ran with it in a pair of neon pink tights.
Mob Wife Prep
Model Gianni Jones mixed fashion genres at a Vivienne Westwood event on February 8, combining the sleek heels and luxe faux fur outerwear of mob wife style with a preppy color palette and argyle sweater. Did she create mob wife prep, the next viral aesthetic? Only time will tell.
Paint the Town Red
Red accessories won't stop trending so it makes sense that they'd make an appearance at NYFW. Malvika Sheth clearly understood this color theory assignment, wearing vividly crimson gloves and tights with oxblood Saint Laurent ballet flats, a gray studded wool coat and a metallic Valentino bag.
Pants-Free Polka Dots
Pants-free, but make it playful. One New York Fashion Week guest took the no-pants look to the next level by going for a very cohesive — and delightful — tights, moto jacket, and matching bikini bottoms 'fit.
A "Loud Luxury" Statement Puffer
Bella Thorne knows how to make a fashion statement as proven by the loudly luxurious bronze puffer jacket she wore to the FW24 AREA runway show.
Velvets and cozy fuzzy fabrics and trims have been making waves on the Fall/Winter '24 runways, but they've also been spotted outside the shows. Ahead of the Anna Sui FW show, one guest combined fuzzy trim and crushed velvet in a boldly proportioned and very fabulous outfit.
An Asymmetrical Remix
Flatforms are useful for running from one show to the next, but they also pair beautifully with a major 2024 fall trend: long skirts. When worn with an asymmetrical jacket like the Nike x Feng Chen Wang windbreaker pictured above, you've got yourself a fresh and fashion-forward look that stands out in a crowd.
Skirts + Pants = Chic
Layering bottoms cuts down on windchill and levels up a street style look as this NYFW guest proved. In fact, pants worn with skirts were a major standout trend spotted on the fashion guys and girlies this NYFW.
