Street Style – New York Fashion Week

While there are some amazing pieces being shown on the run way during NYFW, all eyes are on the notable fashion moments being captured on the streets.

The major trends I am seeing are layers (a personal favourite), menswear inspired combinations, statement coats and 70’s inspired flares, culottes and skirts with knee high boots.

With the unseasonably cold weather we have had this weekend and Autumn just around the corner, this is where I am seeking some early inspiration and outfit ideas for the coming Autumn / Winter season.

Here are some of my favourites after day 2.

NYFW Final 1

I love how Margaret Zhang (Shine by Three) has not only layered a dress over her flares but a trench over a trench. Love, love this.

NYFW Final 2

NYFW Final 3

Aimee Song, (Song of Style), and Margaret Zhang in menswear inspired layers.

NYFW Final 4

A good way to add detail to an outfit, belting a poncho or coat.

NYFW Final 5

What a line up. I love Jacey Duprie’s style (Damsel in Dior).

NYFW Final 6

One of my favourite looks – the texture of the chunky knit scarf with the long coat, and Nicole Warne (Gary Pepper Girl) looks gorgeous in this colour.

NYFW Final 7

Natalie Cantell picture perfect and those shoes!

NYFW Final 8

Brooke Testoni keeping it cool in winter essential grey, while and black.

NYFW Final 9

I love the versatility of this cape and how it is like a dress. Not to mention the monochrome layers.

NYFW Final 10

This ice blue coat will lighten up any winter wardrobe and Caroline Issa matching it with white – amazing.

NYFW Final 11

Aimee Song has pulled this one together perfectly. The bold coat, clashing handbag and my favourite, the flares!

NYFW Final 12

Frame denim kicked off NFYW, with the rest of their collection keeping to this retro style.

NYFW Final 13

It didn’t take long to hit the streets.

7 Favourites of the Week

Glassons

This New Zealand chain store has picked up its game over the past 18 months turning itself in to a ‘High Street’ favourite capable of competing with the best – Top Shop; (which is soon to open in Auckland, I hear March).

I am loving their latest collection, it captures the essence of summer and will have you festival ready in seconds. Here are my picks.

Wearing my favourite, this white off the shoulder blouse.

Wellington Summer 

Wellington is famous for its great coffee, food, the wind and being the culture & innovation hub of New Zealand. It also is one of the prettiest cities with a beautiful harbour, hiking on your doorstep and great beaches to swim.

Wellington Culture

Oriental Parade

Wellington City

To top this off, what about the weather we have been having?! This is a big deal for Wellingtonians. Not only has it been calm, but consistent temperatures between 25 – 30 degrees – winning! Being able to go for a swim almost every day after work has been the highlight of my week!

Did I mention the wind?

Coconut Oil

Not only is it a wonder food, with this amazing weather it has been great to put in my hair after swimming at the beach to stop that gritty, dry feeling. Just finger comb about a small teaspoon through, put your hair in a braid and wash out the next morning. It leaves my hair feeling silky and soft.

Dr FeelGood All Natural Frozen Pops

Deliciously refreshing, these handcrafted frozen pops come in 6 flavours – Chocoholic Cacao & Cream | Raspberry, Lime & Coconut | Flat White Coffee & Cream | Salted Caramel & Apple | Lemon, Manuka Honey & Ginger | Granny Smith, Lime & Mint. All are refined sugar-free and they are a healthy treat! My favourite flavour is Raspberry, Lime and Coconut. Check out ingredients and stockists here.

Let Live

I was pretty excited to learn that one of my favourite online homeware and accessories stores had set up shop in down town Wellington. Let Liv oozes clean Scandinavian style and the shop on Hunter street showcases this. I popped in to check it out and did not leave empty-handed.

The Allegiance Boot

Chaos & Harmony have done it again with the creation of the elegant Allegiance boot. Perfect for Autumn and Winter, pair them with your favourite skinny jeans or a knee-length or midi skirt. I am pretty excited about this release!

Last but not least…..

Shake it Off

I can’t help but dance to this song, even if it’s a little shuffle in my chair at work. What better way to shake off any ‘BS’ than with music! Thank you Taylor Swift!

Now go on, turn this one up loud.
