One notable trend to emerge last winter and this one is exposed ankles, no matter what the temperature. This photo was taken when the polar vortex bore down on New York fashion week last winter. Part of it is due to the conundrum of what to wear with cropped, wide cut jeans and pants, the new silhouette that is edging out skinny jeans. And part of it may just be plain old fashion masochism.
A belted and embroidered red coat seen outside the Carolina Herrera show has a pretty, folklore-y appeal that’s perfect for the holidays.
This was one of the coldest days on record last winter – and of course, a day we photographers were all standing around outside for fashion week in New York. The Lacoste show attendees put a chic spin on cold weather dressing, like this woman in blue with suede over-the-knee boots.
A dramatic and monochromatic look with an ombre coat, seen outside the J. Crew presentation last winter.
A burst of yellow – and a spring fashion preview in florals and camo – on Bryanboy and Tina Craig aka Bagsnob in Valentino outside the show.
Winter may be upon us, but that hasn’t stopped New Yorkers from dressing up in the morning. In downtown Manhattan, a woman mixed a fringe bag with black and nude brick motif tights and combat boots.
Loved the interplay of patterns in this embroidered sheer dress by Self Portrait with a leopard bag on Tiffany Hsu at the Erdem show.
The weather’s getting colder, and it’s time to get cozy. Caroline Issa looked comfy but chic in a cashmere turtleneck sweater and pale gray coat and trousers at the Peter Pilotto show in London.
Combat boots have been a major trend for fall 2016, as seen on Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio after walking the Alberta Ferretti show.
Winter is coming to New York City, but that hasn’t deterred people from biking around town. A man wore a hat, scarf and gloves as he biked through Astor Place one morning.
One item we spotted several times during fashion month: sheer tulle skirts worn over skirts or jeans. They may not add much in terms of warmth, but they do add some whimsy and glamour to an outfit, as seen on Susie Bubble at the Carven show in Paris.
There’s something particularly inspiring about punk-inspired looks right now. Caroline Daur wore a choker studded with beads that look like pins and a pink Carven top to the Carven show in Paris.
The zig zag knit, popularized by Missoni, is a classic that never goes out of style. It’s also a cozy way to sweater-dress. Charlotte Groeneveld wore a zig zag knit sweater and dress by Chloe to the shows in Paris.
This woman was one of many wearing all black on the streets of New York today, the day after the 2016 election. Hot pants may be unusual in November, but the heart-shaped sunglasses should be a tip off: she is wearing an almost exact replica of the look of Darlene in Mr. Robot, the TV show about a dystopian future in which hackers band together under a group called “F Society.”
