Street Style

We’re sure you’ve contemplated it before. Now we have evidence that your instincts were right: our street photographer Kristin Yamada captured a good number of stylish ladies the world over rocking frocks over jeans and trousers this fall. So we’re calling it a trend—just in time to sit down for a monstrous meal with the fam and engage in some roughhousing with the nieces and nephews.

Street Style: dresses over pants.

Consider this post permission to just throw a dress over your jeans this holiday season. Well, maybe not “just.” There are a few guidelines we’d like to share first. Here are the primary ways in which the style-setters are pulling off this perfectly lovely and practical look.

Velvet for Days–and Nights

A favorite formal fabric during the holiday season, velvet started showing up even earlier this year, namely in September. During Fashion Week Spring 2017, the cloth was a head-to-toe favorite among the world’s most stylish ladies, who wore it in a variety colors, during the day, through city streets. Fulfilling unlikely fashion icon George Costanza’s wish, it seems it is now societally acceptable–even embraced by the femmes du monde–to drape oneself in velvet. So what are you waiting for?

Formality is another fashion rule that’s readily being broken, and wearing velvet further blurs the high/low divide by injecting luxury into the everyday. Eveningwear continues to influence daywear: we see furs, lace, embellishments, jewel tones and rich fabrics worn to the office or to the store with denim and tees.

As always, street style during Fashion Week serves as a bellwether for the season’s trends. Some of our favorite velvet looks below show how the style stars are wearing the fabric–without it looking like drapery.
