Fashion Week presents potential trends for the season to come, but it also keeps us firmly rooted in the current moment via street style snapshots. What people wear while skipping from one show to the next is often just as inspiring as anything you’ll see walking down the runway — if not more so.
After several seasons of digital-only or hybrid-presentation models due to the pandemic, New York Fashion Week returned in full force with a packed schedule of in-person shows and events. Running from Sept. 9-14, Fashion Week brought together fashion enthusiasts from across the world, all looking toward spring 2023. They stepped out in an assortment of sartorial statements, from voluminous, exaggerated sleeves on minidresses to vibrant rainbow knits complemented by neon accessories.
Other noteworthy street style trends included saturated colors and prints, leather shorts and trousers, and simple black sunglasses. On the footwear front, showgoers continued to favor comfortable options over sky-high heels, with leather loafers, Birkenstocks, and open-toe flip-flops making frequent appearances on the streets of New York City. Even so, kitten heels remained a go-to for those looking to strike a balance between fashion and function.
Outerwear favorites were primarily bold-hued, boxy blazers and deconstructed denim jackets. And some of the top handbag brands spotted on style stars? Coach, Fendi, and Telfar, just to name a few.
This season, six POPSUGAR editors attended NYFW shows and events sporting many fall-ready trends. Keep reading for a full recap on what the editorial team wore and shop the exact items or similar options to refresh your own wardrobe.
