New York based blogger and photographer Karen Blanchard of Where Did U Get That serves us inspo on the trends you need to know about with her street style edit of what the New York set were wearing on the streets this fashion week.
All things oversized and borrowed from your boyfriend styles are still reigning supreme as confirmed by the street style set. Marrying the complicated art of comfort dressing with looking good, arguably ill fitting garms never looked more right.
The rules when it comes to hemlines this season seems to be there is no rules, with asymmetric and skewed skirts being seen filtering through for SS17. Keep the look more day time appropes by teaming an otherwise luxe flowing length with a chunky ankle boot and fun bomber.
From leopard to snake, exotic and animalistic prints are going to be the go-to prints you’ll be wearing this season. A black on black look paired with one standout print is a fail safe way to nail this look that keeps it effortless and fuss free.
Strong accessories are a street style fave and this season was no different. The statement hard wearing box bag having a strong accessory game is an easy way to take an uncomplicated outfit from low key to lit. Note the contrasting strap to insert an interesting colour pop to an otherwise neutral palette.
The trench gets a new lease of life for Spring, from the every day classic to styles in luxe fabrics for sexed up evening styles. If you’re looking to invest in one that’ll give you the most mileage and CPW (that’s cost per wear), opt for a fail safe classic number you can wear over and over.
Yellow is being championed as one of the key break through colours of the season with pops of yellow both subtle and stand out being seen all over the catwalk. What might initially have been thought of as an odd choice for a statement hue just works.
Another firm favourite that comes around every Spring, stripes are back and seen in every style from barely there pin stripes to thick and bold lines.
