New York Fashion Week delivers plenty of emerging trends on the runway, but it’s the style on the streets that's really exciting. The NYFW street style set pulls out all the stops when it comes to testing trends of the moment, translating high fashion into a wearable everyday style that wows.
With the current winter temps in New York, show goers are hitting the streets in knee-high boots, luxe textures, chunky knits, and cozy coats — all in memorable patterns. One of the most popular trends to surface this season is animal print: snakeskin, leopard, zebra, and more. The classic patterns are showing up on items like midi skirts, furry coats, knee high boots, and bags alike.
This season, attendees are showing a whole new arsenal of ways to style animal prints ranging from subtle to bold. Taking your cue from the street style crowd, consider topping all-black looks with a statement-making zebra print coat, or perhaps an understated snakeskin clutch is more your speed (this option is only $14 on Amazon right now). Slip into a pair of leopard printed pants that make your outfit, or opt instead for a knee-high, cow-print boot peeking from underneath a midi skirt.
