Once upon a time, runways may have been the authority on New York Fashion Week trends. In 2019, however, I would posit that street style has officially usurped this norm. There are numerous factors contributing to this shift–more broadly, the democratization of influence courtesy of social media, of course, but also the simple truth that seeing an interesting sartorial idea in action out in the real world makes it seem that much more immediately viable. There’s something about witnessing a trend in action that ups its potency, a tangible demonstration of how you might conceivably wear it. This season, I’ve already noticed a few things I want to try, like wearing a literal tennis skirt with zero intention to play tennis, rekindling my relationship with my old motorcycle jacket, and even reconsidering the possibility of maxi (!) skirts. Give the below slideshow a scroll and let me know what you’re keen to attempt.
