Fashion Week introduces trends for the season to come, but it also keeps us firmly rooted in the current moment through street style snapshots. What people wear while skipping from one show to the next is often just as inspiring as anything you’ll see walking down the runway — if not more so.
After several seasons of digital-only or hybrid-presentation models due to the pandemic, New York Fashion Week has returned back to its roots with a packed schedule of in-person shows and events, running over the course of five days. From Feb. 10-15, Fashion Week brought together style enthusiasts from across the world, all looking toward the Fall 2023 season. They stepped out in bold sartorial statements, from printed coats and color block outfits to personalized pantsuits and corsetry.
Other noteworthy street style trends included texture play, vegan leather, and deconstructed denim. On the footwear front, show goers continued to favor platforms and thigh-high boots. But kitten heels and sneakers remained a go-to for those looking to strike a balance between fashion and function.
Outerwear favorites were primarily bold-hued and worn oversize, with boxy coats and deconstructed denim jackets reigning supreme. And some of the top handbag brands spotted on style stars? Prada, Bottega Veneta, Staud, Coperni, and Brandon Blackwood, just to name a few.
This season, POPSUGAR Fashion Director Jessica Andrews and Senior Fashion Editor Sarah Wasilak attended NYFW shows sporting many shoppable new trends. Still, looks worn by past editors continue to remain relevant. Keep reading for a full recap on what the editorial team wore to Fashion Week through the years, and refresh your wardrobe with their exact items.
