Runways inform big-picture trends, sure; but I turn to street style when I want to know what to wear right now. Thankfully, as we head into the Fall 2019 Fashion Week calendar, we already have a sense of what those street style looks will be — so we can start planning our outfits. You can expect a resurgence of animal prints, Crayola-bright colors, and the comeback of the wide-leg jean spotted all over the streets at Copenhagen Fashion Week (which just preceded New York Fashion Week). Here, we’ve got a glimpse of the “dress code” being adopted by the most stylish showgoers, aka the women who really make the trends.
From quick styling tricks to fresh new silhouettes and a bright new palette, these are the eight trends setting the tone for Fashion Week street style and 2019 at large.
