Ask any fashion insider and they’ll immediately tell you that the city’s bi-annual event — aka New York Fashion Week — is finally back in full swing. To match this energy, it seems like showgoers collectively decided to kick their outfits up a notch, too. The stylish VIPs, editors, buyers, and off-duty models are already making their way from one show to the next in outfits that could rival those on the runway. For New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023, the street style crowd took a unique approach to dressing for the trends, too, so you’re always in for a pleasant outfit surprise.
Some fashionistas were partial to cargo jeans, sheer dresses, and ballet flats. Other attendees came up with their own styling tricks — like wearing multiple tops or bottoms together — which translated into extra attention-grabbing outfits. Further, the fashion royalty flocked to Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom to take in Fendi’s 25th anniversary celebration of its Baguette bag, thereby debuting next-level looks for the occasion.
