NYFW Fall 18 Street Style trends to wear IRL

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) Fall 2018 kicked off late last week and I’m loving following all the trends that are appearing both on the catwalk and on the show attendees. I love picking up on trends and translating them into real life. And most importantly, finding where I can purchase said trends so I can feel street style cool too πŸ˜‰ New York is absolutely freezing at the moment so obviously outerwear is a big part of the styles being worn. Statement coats are huge which is exciting. A coat is a piece that can easily lift your basic denim and tee or pencil skirt and shirt and make the whole outfit amazing rather than just ok. Plus pick a great colour or pattern and you’ll have a million different outfit possibilities. It’s all about the cost per wear for me. I would rather spend $200 on a coat I’ll wear heaps than $40 on one I would wear once, twice tops. Another trend filtering through is

practical but super stylish footwear…block heel boots in stand out colours, think red, white, metallic finishes, and rad kicks.These are but two of the trends. Simply type NYFW street style trends into google and you’ll come up with everything that has been seen out and about on the streets of New York. Accessories as always are big, teeny tiny sunglasses, think The Matrix, with matching trench coats, berets which have just popped into Glassons, lots of teddy coats in a range of colours and gorgeous bags.

I’ve chosen four of my fave NYFW looks, though I could easily have chosen so many more. I love winter outerwear! And I’m really feeling it in chilly Melbs today. So anyways, I’ve picked four inspo looks and found real life translations for them. Non designer brands meaning great prices on items that will be huge in the months to come. These pieces will all work in numerous ways, with lots of different outfits. As always, my rule before purchasing is that each piece must be able to be worn three ways. And preferably with pieces I already own.

the real life:

nyfw faux fur jacket
Asos Faux Fur Collar Jacket $139 … a great neutral colour to work with everything

This colour will look perfectly at home with denim meaning it is a piece that can be dressed down, it will also work with black and greys. It’s a cool shape, all eyes will be on it so dress simply underneath. Unless you’re channeling Kate Moss, in which case go all out like she did here!

the inspo:

Balenciaga ugly sneaker photo: Youngjun Koo … comfort & so ugly they’re cool <3

the real life:

nyfw street style kicks
Nike Air Huarache City Low Shoes $180 … like the Balenciaga, they’re ugly but in a cool way!

These kicks have been paired with absolutely everything at NY and European fashion weeks, from cropped and cuffed pants to skirts and floaty frocks. Don’t be afraid to pair the unusual!

the inspo:

nyfw burberry
Burberry Heritage Plaid Coat … whether you go traditional plaid,
nyfw calvin klein
or Calvin Klein plastic check coat

the real life:

nyfw reality check coat
Asos Wool Coat in Check $168 … also in petite and curve size ranges, a great neutral colourway

Much like I’m loving the check blazer, I’m also crushing on the check longline coat…and check pants and check skirts. Perfect for strolling High Street shops looking fabulous or wearing to watch the kids play footy/soccer in the fricking freezing cold weather, this coat will be a winter essential.

the inspo:

the real life:

nyfw grey boot
Tony Bianco Ajay Grey Stretch Suede Boot $100 (sale, plus take another 20% off with code TAF20) only a couple of sizes left so don’t miss out
nyfw pink coat
Vero Moda Pink Trench Coat $109, so pretty I couldn’t resist adding another IRL piece <3

Who can go past a gorgeous pair of boots or classic trench coat? Both such wardrobe necessities. I’m loving coloured trenches for something a little different. Whilst I love and admire a classic style of dress, I much prefer making it a little different and a coloured trench is an easy way to do this.

NYFW is the first of the big four fall Fashion Weeks but golly gosh I was loving what was coming out of Copenhagen and Stockholm during their weeks. The style there is so very different, and infinitely more eclectic than what you will find elsewhere. Each city has their own style and I love seeing the differences each week. Is anyone else as fashun obsessed as I? Although I rarely look anywhere near as fab as these ladies, they do provide much inspiration to my wardrobe and daily outfits.


**worth noting, Asos currently has a 20% off full price promotion with the code LOVEME, so save 20% on all these coats!!!!**
