If New York Fashion Week is the style world's equivalent of back-to-school, then the street style that comes with it is our version of those perfect first-day outfits. It sets the tone for the whole Fashion Month ahead, as the style set rolls out the It shoes and bags of the season, swathed in the biggest trends.
You won't be surprised to see Bottega Veneta on the heels of the most stylish women at the shows — or stashed under their arms in the form of the brand's covetable "dumpling" clutches. But beyond the obvious, Fashion Week is a place where personal style reigns supreme. The editors, influencers, and industry vets we can't stop talking about are the ones with unique ways to layer, who innovate classic outfit formulas, and generally turn the street into their own personal catwalk. Herein, find the best looks of the week.
