225 Street Style Looks From NYFW

The Writers | February 17, 2017

Click ’til the cows come home

It may be cold and we may be hanging on to our optimism by a thread, but, per the slideshow above, said thread appears to be V soft and colorful. Over the course of New York Fashion Week, MR photographer Simon Chetrit was out shooting street style so those of us not attending could sit back, cozy up and read the cues like horoscopes. (The dead of February, it should be said, is not a bad time to spend indoors.)

Over the past five years, street style has gone through a puberty of sorts — bouncing around between overzealous and boring — but the past couple seasons we’ve observed a marked shift towards authenticity. Last winter, it felt personal again. Last fall, it felt fun again. It was interesting to unpack what this season had to offer, given the cultural/political/literal climate. By the looks of it, both personality and utility were a focus this year. How refreshing.

  • A Melbourne girl’s dream slide show of street style. My entire winter-is-coming wardrobe is going to depend on this! Love each of the outfits, hand-click, selected by my favo(u)rite people in America.

    The person in the dove grey frock with pale grey hair is giving me heart-emoji eyes.

  • Saskia

    Nothing to do with this piece, but since the comments were disabled on the Amal Alamuddin piece I came here to tell you that I absolutely loved it!!

    • Haley Nahman

      Oh that was a weird accident sorry about that — they’re back! And thank you!

  • Taylor Belmer

    #22, girl, your stripe game. Yas.

  • Danielle Nguyen

    Blue bell bottoms and beanie girl, you are my hero.

  • me

    Maybe it’s just me, but NYFW street style pix are far more authentic & engaging & relatable than photos taken of models at the actual fashion shows.

    THANKS, SIMON ! xo

  • Tess

    Look 28 is my fav (gold boots, white retro glasses). Very amused at her nonchalant, idgaf attitude, willing to bet she’s dying of happiness that MR is taking her pic on the inside 🙂

  • Fran

    Love the poncho and hair in picture number three. Love all the blue in #4, the coat in #12, the striped trousers in #26, the belt buckle in #30/31, the coats in #34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 41, 42, and all that beautiful grey in #40.

  • Andrea

    Thanks MR for reminding us what street style should actually feel natural and not over the top done just for the photo. These all remind me of Cunningham shots.

    You did good.

  • Alison

    #24 makes me so happy! I love this series.

    The range of coats almost make me wish it were cold enough to wear one. But I also rode my bike in 60-degree weather today, because global warming is sublime (in the 19th c. sense of the word — terrifying and beautiful to behold, all at once).

  • rachel

    Loving all the faux fur in this slideshow! The gentlemen in photo 10/photo 34 in particular are killing it

  • laura

    number 2 – the girl from Gotham? Plays selina kyle?

    • Simon Chetrit

      Yup!

  • Linda

    Wow, just wow……….I wouldn’t be caught dead in any of it. I thought this was pick your worst fashion disaster, and I see people commenting that they like it? Seriously?

  • Senka

    Ok, I’m off to buy trench similar to the one leandra is wearing. I wasn’t sure about it, but if she wears something like it, I need it in my life.

  • Babs

    Does anyone else struggle with the Pin button? It takes me to the next slide rather than prompting a pin.

    • Leandra Medine

      Just noticed that! Will inform tech <3

    • Yvonne Dunlevie

      Working on it now! Thank you! (and thanks Leandra!)

    • Yvonne Dunlevie

      Babs! Fixed! Have a great day

  • is the carousel/slider broken? can’t scroll through the pretty pictures. 🙁

    • Yvonne Dunlevie

      Hey! I am working on this right now! Thanks so much — sorry for the problem!

  • Someone please tell me the name of that mystical vision in picture 7?!

  • ashley

    why does smoking still look damn cool? & gray hair, need it

  • loveislove

    NYFW or not, I could look at pix of NewYorkers all damn day long. Esp in winter.

  • Love the windy pics

  • Natty

    Such fleeky coat game! Ugh! Giving me life

  • Allie Fasanella

    just went through this whole slideshow and screenshotted the outfits i would wear bc i’m currently having an identity crisis and don’t know what makes me feel like ~me~ anymore

    • Leandra Medine

      Close your eyes Allie Fasanella and imagine yourself in your favorite place on earth doing your favorite thing with your favorite person/people.
      NOW ASK YOURSELF: What am I wearing?

    • chouette

      I’m making copies of them using my clothes in my Cher Horowitz app! This rules!

  • Holly Laine Mascaro

    Love the Leandra Easter eggs. I will say though looking at all the fashion week outfits, my mind is always baffled because here I am freezing and would never be comfortable in most of these looks. And/or I would slip and fall on my ass.

  • Emma

    Great shots!
    NEED to know where the jacket in 34 is from.

  • Hilary

    These are the best street style photos on the internet rn!! Love coming back to see the new additions every day.

    • Simon Chetrit

      Thank you so much!! Very meaningful to me <3

  • JK

    Just once I’d like to see a street style shot of a person who looks like me – just so I can see how to adapt new trends to my body and get inspiration. Back to the trial and error of the dressing room mirror!

    • Simon Chetrit

      Well, what do you look like! Perhaps that can be arranged!

      • JK

        I’m 5’1″, size 6-8, very hourglass/thick/junk in all the trunks. So many of the current trends that I lust over either make me look like I’m playing dress up or make me look like a perfect sphere!

        • Leandra Medine

          Where do you live?

          • JK

            Houston.

    • Leandra Medine

      Send us a selfie!!!!

      • JK

        If only I had one that didn’t make me look like a dollar store Kim K…

  • Laura Riches

    Where did you get the pink lined umbrella!?

  • Ashley Minyard

    Ah the fabulously flamboyant outerwear gives me life <3

  • Shevaun

    who is slide 12 and does she have an insta, her look is so good.

  • Carlee Gomes

    So turnt on this slideshow. But Pinterest is saying it can’t find any pinnable images on this page (I know for a fact there are at least 225, Pinterest!) and I might be way more upset about that than I should be, but I want to literally and figuratively put pins in things to save for future reference when I’m immobile in front of my closet. Halpp.

  • Jade Cooling

    A little late to this, but does anyone know who’s in slide #35!!!!

  • Dacy

    Who is the stylish lady in photo 36?

  • Rose Pink

    We just post a blog article talking about sporty chic: https://www.onslowness.com/blogs/edits/how-to-be-sporty-chic-style-guide
    Some amazing looks in the slideshow just match our ideas and also give us extra inspiration. Love the diversified and personal street styles from NYFW. Thanks for sharing MR!

  • I love that these are a little less curated, a little less matchy-matchy, more relaxed and honest than your typical street style shots. NY on that normcore trajectory. Way to go.

  • The most beautiful street fashion for really spring season…
