If anyone can spot the best looks at Fashion Week, it’s our gimlet-eyed street photographer, Crystal Nicodemus. Here are a few of her favorite fashion ladies, plus their Instagram handles so you can continue to follow their stellar style.
Models make everything look chic and easy. Alana is no exception. She looks effortlessly cool in casual, textural separates. Her two-tone jeans are the perfect crop and relaxed cut. Corduroy continues to be a popular textile, and Alana’s duster is covetable. This is a wearable and cozy look for a gloomy winter’s day.
I must have this coat! It’s so current and cool. High-shine patent textures are everywhere, and it’s great to see such a unique spin on a heritage pattern. Normcore neutrals really let this hero piece show off.
Blogging buds Camille and Caro are embracing the resurgence of leather luxury, but adding a modern, sporty edge. I never expected to need a leather jumpsuit in my life, but Camille has fully convinced me. Red boots are the season’s must-have, and they add a great burst of color to any look. Caro’s motocross-inspired look is spot on trend, as yellow is a strong color for the season.
Chloe is a master of print mixing. She keeps her palette monochromatic, while embracing bold patterns. I love her mix of textures as well. You can still wear a summer dress in winter, just layer it over pants and a chic turtleneck. A colorful tote adds a burst of blue, and metallic mules hint at spring.
As you all know, I love a jumpsuit. Chrissy’s utility-inspired one-piece is just right. The cropped, raw-edge hem pairs perfectly with trendy patent leather booties. Puffer coats are a must-have this season, especially when styled off the shoulders. An animal-print turtleneck adds a subtle touch of pattern and extra protection from the elements.
Ece may be in black, but she still knows how to stand out in a crowd. Layered leather coats and bold studded elements feel very punk chic. High-shine patent pants are one of the season’s hottest pieces. An embellished Gucci belt bag is another must-have, along with snakeskin boots. I love how Ece works all the trends, but still maintains a unique personal style.
Irene is channeling New York City with this taxi-inspired ensemble. Yellow is a hot hue at Fashion Week, as Irene is ably demonstrating. Menswear themes abound as well, and this subtle pattern mix is a master class. Clean, white sneakers continue to dominate the footwear scene.
Jan-Michael is one of street style’s most interesting stars. She has incredible personal style, and is not afraid to experiment with trends and proportion. The luxe utility jacket is ultra popular right now, and is an unexpected pairing with plaid and modern western boots.
Now that is one way to handle a rainy day at Fashion Week! Kim looks stunning and sexy, despite the abysmal weather. Her patent, belted raincoat is gorgeous and a total statement piece, even in a neutral color. Sock booties are everywhere this season, and Kim’s purple pair are standouts.
Suiting continues to dominate the street-style scene. Rebecca’s slim menswear suit is chic and modern. A stylized puffer is an unexpected and seasonal pairing. A classic clutch with a bold color stripe and modern snakeskin mules add some city flair.
