Hello from NYFW!
Just joking… We have been sitting back here in Oz checking out the latest street style trends coming out of the big apple. We’ve seen some killer looks which every woman should attempt to replicate. For your convenience, we’ve put together 6 must have items that have been of prominent focus over the last week. These items will act as your core staples for the season ahead. Mix and match these items with things you already own, or wear them all together, each pieces is sooooo versatile – see it for yourself!
Whether it be a pair of “mom jeans” a trusty denim skirt or a denim jumpsuit, denim is back with vengeance and no longer is it too casual to wear after 5pm. We think a denim jumpsuit is a stellar way to work the season’s 1970s vibe. Style it with a slouchy tan suede bag and matching wooden platforms.
Shop the look: M.i.a Saint Denim Jumpsuit from Samantha Ogilvie.
#2 Black Silk Shirt
M. Zhang is rocking the monocrom look! It’s simple, yet effective and an absolute winner for all occasions. We recommend a shirt with a silk composition; silk is breathable, looks luxurious and feels amazing on the body.
Shop the look: Equipment Slim Signature Shirt from Calexico.
#3 White Trousers
Wide leg trousers were HUGE at NYFW and we highly recommend making them a staple in your wardrobe. This is one style that is effortless, timeless, flattering and most importantly, you don’t need tanned legs… Yipppeee!! Team it with navy for a nautical look, or try an “all white everythangg” look for a crisp statement.
Shop the look: Crepe Wide Leg Pant from Zimmermann.
#4 A Wool Coat
A luxurious wool coat is a must have in every women’s wardrobe and why not make yours a pretty salmon pink one! Pink has featured heavily at NYFW from the streets to the runway with Zimmermann, Altuzarra and Diane Von Furstenburg supporting a pop of pink. We’ve found the perfect coat for a Queensland winter, it’s pretty yet sophisticated and remember a good coat is an investment piece – you will have it for ever!
Shop the look: Maia Split Coat from Witchery.
#5 A Little Black Bag
A little black bag is essential and this little ‘it’ bag by Givenchy made a number of appearances at NYFW and we understand why; it’s compact, has a strap, is designed by Givenchy and is black (of course!). Your little black bag should take you effortlessly from day to night, do not underestimate the power of a little black bag.
Shop the look now: Givenchy Small Pandora Bag from Maryon’s.
#6 Optical Glasses
Whether you require them for seeing clearly or not, optical glasses are the ultimate accessory this season. Seen on many fashionistas in the streets of New York we feel that bigger is better, right? We love these ‘grandpa’ like frames… If these are too large for your face why not try a round pair of metal wired frames – you will never look back!
Shop the look: AM EYEWEAR from Optiko.
