STRIKE A POSE: NYFW STREET STYLE

Do you want to ignite a million flashbulbs and be a street style star like the inimitable Caroline Issa, bold Susie Bubble or extravagant Anna Dello Russo? To celebrate the start of New York Fashion Week, we reveal the five instant style updates that will ensure you get papped during show season too…

1: SWING A BACKPACK

Whether it’s distressed denim, fringed suede or air-soft leather – the backpack is the only bag to carry right now. Make a modern contrast and team a style of your choice with ladylike cuts. Think fitted jackets, pencil skirts and button-up shirts.

2: GET SHIRTY

The classic white shirt made a major return to the runways this spring and it’s sure to be on heavy style rotation during the upcoming fashion weeks. Our top tip? Layer oversized iterations over unexpected separates such as vibrant pin-thin trousers or a leather skirt. A simple gold choker finishes the look.

3: PUSH THE PANTONE

Reinvigorate a dull day (because, let’s face it, it’s still winter out there) with a pop of bright colour. From a bright silk shirt to an eye-catching lipstick, a vibrant accent is guaranteed to turn heads and give you a mood-boosting lift – what’s not to love?

4: CHAMPION SPORTS LUXE

Thanks to cover-girl Cara Delevingne, athletic essentials have become the new model off-duty outfit of choice. Follow their lead and run rings around the fashion competition in cool trainerssporty sweaters and slouchy trousers.

5: CROP IT

Top off midi-length skirts and high-waisted trousers with a navel-grazing crop top. Those in the know are wearing simple styles in a neutral palette of grey, white, navy or black.
