The Best Street Style at New York Fashion Week Spring 2022

No one was certain what this New York Fashion Week would look like in the lead-up to its first real calendar of IRL shows since January of 2020. But one thing was always guaranteed: The street style would be especially on point. Posting fit pics just isn’t the same as getting professionally photographed in your look’s full glory, and on Wednesday, the first full day of shows, the newly reawakened peacocks’ excitement was palpable. Clearly, Telfar’s “bag security program” has been working: The highly covetable totes are everywhere, covering the full spectrum of color and size. As for the rest of the trends, well, it’s all only just beginning. Stay up to date through Tom Ford’s grand finale on Sunday, here.
