Fashion Week is pretty much a 2-for-1 special, thanks to the to-die-for street style that consistently graces the sidewalks. The Fall/Winter 2014 Ready-to-Wear shows are no different, offering us a glimpse into the impeccable, real-life closets of the world’s most coveted models, designers and bloggers. And what better place for wardrobe envy than New York? Take a peek at the city’s finest right here.
Prints, prints, prints!
From florals to stripes and everything in between, bold prints were a NYFW favorite. The difference between this set and your typical houndstooth wearer: their ability to mix and match patterns flawlessly. We’re taking mental notes; what about you?
Something about fur just screams old Hollywood – and we can’t get enough. Start slow with a subtle fur collar, and work your way up to full-blown coat. Don’t worry: faux is just as fabulous.
Okay, the typical black leather jacket can get a little tired. But these fashion gurus know how to mix it up, whether it’s with a pop of color, a girly tutu or even a simple sundress underneath. Oh, and studs are ALWAYS a plus.
How refreshing! Amid a sea of black, these girly pinks and blues managed to still look winter-y. Stick to wool, fur and other thick materials to stay in season, and dodge chiffon and silk like the plague.
Kate Foster is a hodgepodge of seemingly unrelated titles: writer. Blogger. Beauty and fashion junkie. Cat devotee. Art history buff. Harry Potter nerd. Cheesy 90's television fan. Sometimes-gamer. Seasonal sculptor. Mostly she’s a music enthusiast. While her heart and soul belong to 50's and 60's crooners like Etta James, Sam Cooke and Elvis Presley, one shouldn’t be surprised to find her listening to Lady Gaga or Jay-Z. Most days, though, she’s in an indie-punk mood somewhere in between - she counts the Pixies, the White Stripes, M83, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs as a few of her favorites. And while you’ll typically see her bobbing her head calmly at concerts, occasionally she pulls out all the stops for bands like the Black Lips. She treasures her bruises like a child. After graduating from the University of Georgia with degrees in Journalism and Art History, Kate aspires to move to New York City. There, she hopes to continue to write. She also plans on pretending to understand the art at MoMA and stuffing her face with cronuts and one dollar pizza. Kate’s heroes range from Oscar de la Renta and Mindy Kaling to Ernest Hemingway and Rupert Giles. She practically inhales iced coffee on a daily basis. Her favorite color is yellow, and like Buddy the Elf, she considers candy a major food group. She has dreams almost every night involving the coolest architecture and interior design, and has no idea what it means. Seriously, what does that mean?!
