Fashion Week Street Style Style

Refinery29 Tells Us What to Wear to Fashion Week

We asked Refinery29 Associate Fashion Editor Alison Ives to select the Nordstrom pieces that are sure to get us noticed on the streets during Fashion Week. 

As much as we look forward to devouring the new runway collections during Fashion Month, the real thrill comes with the style we spot outside the shows. From the model-off-duty fads to the wild outfit combos editors and other insiders peacock in, these looks feel immediately replicable, unlike those from designer collections that’ll take months to trickle down to us. In fact, these on-the-street moments inform our sartorial choices just as much as the clothing on the catwalk, making both critical in our seasonal trend reports.

Refinery 29's Fashion Week picks

In anticipation of another whirlwind fashion cycle, we wanted to get ahead of the street-style trends and predict what we think will be everywhere this Fashion Month. Since our penchant for style stalking is nothing new, we have a pretty good hunch about which pieces equal instant fashion cred. To map ’em out, we combed the new arrivals at Nordstrom for all the hot-ticket items that are sure to be street-photography gold. From athletic stripes to Gucci footwear, the following trends are our big bets for the season. Scoop ’em up now so you can say you had them before they blew up on Instagram.

What to Wear to Nordstrom Designer Preview

Collections from top American and European designers are almost never shown together on one runway, but each summer Nordstrom pulls together amazing fall looks from Céline, Valentino, Lanvin and more for a best-of-the-best fashion show event known as Designer Preview. This year’s gorgeous parade is on July 23—on the epic Seattle waterfront—and as always, all proceeds benefit the Seattle Art Museum.

Among those expected in the front row: One of our favorite collaborators, Caroline Issa, and two of the most girl crush-worthy editors from Refinery29, Annie Georgia Greenberg and Paula Goldstein. Instagrammin’ style watchers will recognize Cara Van Brocklin from Cara Loren, Blair Eadie from Atlantic-Pacific and Wendy Nguyen from Wendy’s Lookbook—all flying in for the big event.

You’re invited too, of course—tickets are available via SAMS, Seattle Art Museum’s supporter group. The only question left to settle, then, is what will we all wear?

Each X Other Kicks Off at the Palais de Tokyo and a Refinery29 Editor on How to Do the Rest of Paris Fashion Week from Your Laptop

Fashion Week Journal for Tuesday, March 3



In case you were thinking Paris was going to kick off all featherlight and pinky froth, Each X Other took its turn in the YOYO room at the Palais de Tokyo at noon with a violin soloist in front of an abstract projection and then a heady text screen before look after look in chicified (that’s a word? yes, for now) pinstripe wool, sleek suiting references with bared shoulders, leather work gear for girls and nubby knits.

Don’t get me wrong, it was gorgeous. But it was serious business too.

Street Report: Annie Outside Prabal Gurung

I have a total style crush on Annie Georgia Greenberg, a senior style editor at Refinery29. She loves to have fun with fashion—and during Fashion Week, a sense of humor is necessary! Today’s look has vintage appeal with some modern twists. I am obsessed with gingham, so this bold print is a standout. A bright coral lip and some retro mod clear shades cap off the look. Can’t wait to see what’s next for Annie!
