On any given day in New York, you may rub elbows with a creative in SoHo rocking a leopard coat or sit across from someone on the subway sporting a pair of metallic thigh-high boots. In short, residents of the Big Apple are famous for flexing their fashion muscles. (For further evidence, take a gander at popular Instagram accounts like @nyc_looks or @watchingnewyork.) And once New York Fashion Week rolls around — aka, right now — the city’s killer street style game is only amplified. Indeed, the Fall/Winter 2024 shows have begun, which means if you hit the sidewalks of Manhattan, you’ll be left with endless outfit ideas courtesy of the industry’s best-dressed editors, buyers, stylists, and influencers.
With the brisk New York weather on Thursday, most attendees went the practical route with their show-bound looks, opting for ultra-warm coats (sure, there were some open-toe shoes here and there, naturally). A few trending styles spotted on the streets? Penny Lane silhouettes and oversized puffer jackets. And, just as fashion insiders predicted, luxe investment items like high-style denim and leather bags (hello, Dior) were also a major hit.
If you’re ready for a hefty dose of sartorial inspiration, keep scrolling ahead to take in the best street style looks seen outside the Fall/Winter 2024 shows. As always, we’ll update this post throughout the week, so make sure to hit refresh every day.
