Get the Look: What to Wear to Fashion Week
Images by Crystal Nicodemus
Every Fashion Week, we’re front row at the show on the streets–if front row is combing over photos of what the fashion editors and influencers wear. Often their outfits are just as inspiring as the runway presentations—and, let’s face it, more achievable.
To help us prepare for New York Fashion Week, we scoured images of Sydney’s recent Fashion Week scene. Here are the key trends that we’re calling this season. Even if you’re not going to the fashion cities, you’ll want to take these styles to a street near you.
A bracelet bag
Let your accessories do double duty. These pretty and petite purses were popping up all over Sydney this summer. Elegant hardware handles add polish to any outfit, whether you’re dressed for day or night, and are a delicate final touch for your totables.
Retro oval sunnies
Although this classic style owes a lot to the cool cat-eyes of the 1950 and ’60s, the shapes and hues we saw in Sydney also hearkened back to the ’90s grunge scene and Kurt Cobain’s famous white oval pair. Both chic and rocker styles dominated the street-style crowd, which made us think that these shades were prime for pop appeal.
Cute ankle socks
Fashion is all about the details, like sweet-looking feet. Add an anklet to a modest pump or even an oxford for a sassy way to style your shoes. Whether the socks are fishnet or opaque, they’re a simple addition that can up the ante on your outfit.
No matter if they were wearing dresses, skirts, shorts, pants or (scandalously) just shirts, the Fashion Week set in Sydney was seriously loving this season’s sock booties. It’s easy to see why. The sleek style is a neat, modern finish to any look. (Please wear pants, though.)
Symmetry is always in style. Earrings featuring globes, bulbs, orbs or hoops are making their way around the fashion circles. If you’re going to try the spherical statement earring, be sure to go big—and have a ball!
A dapper jacket
Want to be sure we’re checking you out at Fashion Week? Then wear a gentlemanly jacket in a fresh plaid print. Feminized menswear is truly having a moment with the style stars, and the check patterns we’ve been seeing are enough to make us want to put on a three-piece suit.
