The Best {Wearable!} Street Style from NYFW 2017.

This blog is not about high fashion. I’m not very trendy and I don’t want to be! My personal style is pretty classic and feminine as opposed to edgy and cool. I try to stick to the things I know will look good on my body (though yes, I know, I do love a good shapeless shift… #sorrynotsorry). If I put on too many layers, I’ll look like a muppet – not a fashion girl. Silly. So we don’t cover much fashion week stuff around here. Still, street style imagery can be so inspiring… and if you look hard enough, there are a lot of really fantastic and wearable looks that can easily translate to your day-to-day. As ELLE put it, the best looks aren’t on the runway… they’re on the streets! Jenna and I spent hours perusing this season’s best street style, and then put together some ideas for how you can get the look. Read on for our favorite looks… and then scroll to the bottom of this post for a shoppable collage with our favorite picks. This was a fun one to pull together!

I started with the above look on Eva Chen. L-O-V-E. Pair a simple grey turtleneck (in maybe a size bigger than you’d usually wear) with a faux shearling jacket (love this one!) and an amazing pair of tortoise sunnies… you’re done. I think she’s carrying a little ring clutch like this one… and a balloon animal? Eva, you’re the coolest.

The earrings this year were major (again, but this time it is all about structure and geometry. I loved the all white earrings in particular (for a similar look, try this pair or this pair). For something more structured try these or these!

This look is a favorite favorite – and it’s easy to recreate with pieces you probably already own (though I will note that I would probably button up my top a bit more….) Take an oversized white top, unbutton a few buttons and slide it down a bit to wear it off the shoulder. Or, for a more precise approach try Theory’s amazing Tamalee top (I have it and love it – see it on me here) for a built-in street style look.

Red coats were everywhere. We love this Tibi one, but for something more affordable try this!

And then there were the famous fringe jeans. Note – you could totally get this look by sewing tassel/fringe trim onto a pair of your own jeans.

This look makes me so happy as it’s something I would totally wear. Layer a teddy coat over a pretty feminine dress and top it off with a chain strap purse. Just keep the color palette in the same family!

There were so many amazing embellished jackets on the streets this year. The below sequin tiger jacket is so cool, and the coat above would actually be such a cute DIY. You could easily take felt and glue or sew it to a camel coat like this one.

Last but not least, puffers were EVERYWHERE. While a cropped puffer is definitely chic + sporty I was unsure how it would translate in my own wardrobe until I saw the above photo. I love the idea of pairing one with a drop waist dress. It’s still feminine and girly, but a little more edgy.

And now, as promised… our favorite pieces to help you get that street style look. Adding even just one or two of these pieces to your existing wardrobe will instantly elevate your look and add just a dash of cool. So many of the pieces we found were from Topshop, which is always a happy surprise as they’re a little easier on the wallet.

    Yes yes yes! Eva Chen is my favorite. I can’t get away with her style, but I always pull inspiration from it.

    • graceatwood says 2.23.17

      I know, I love her too! Some of her looks are a lot more wearable than the other big editors/street style stars.
