If you thought for a second that the gravy train of good outfits from New York Fashion Week might begin to taper by Day 3, then darling you were dead wrong! This particular installment of street style has me wondering, post Lunar New Year, whether this is indeed the Year of the Rat–I just saw one, so that checks out–or actually the Year of the Camel.
Why? Well. I have never in my life seen so many good camel-and-khaki-colored coats, sweaters, blazers, and boots. That’s not to say that this season’s street style is lacking in vivacity by any means, because in many cases that camel color is worn with a collar that would make the House of Tudor proud, or a petal pink pantsuit, or denim covered in doodles.
Tl;dr the timeless continues to coexist with the semi-ephemeral in happy harmony! And that’s a fashion week thesis I can get behind. I recommend scouring these pics for ways to pair the camel (or neutral) pieces in your closet with that hand-embroidered peasant blouse you always thought you’d wear more often. Or something like that. Then proceed to tell me your stories of inspiration and triumph in the comments, where I’ll be doing the same.
