NYFW Street Style

When it comes to fashion week, designers might be showing off the latest looks for AW 2015 on the runways, but there are plenty of notable fashion moments happening on the streets! The global fashion crew descended upon New York City with purpose, and wouldn’t let the below-freezing temperatures dampen their stylish parade. Here are our favourite looks and trends from outside the shows.   Pastel Hues Take note of New York’s blushing show-goers and invest in a pink coat to take you into spring in perfect pastel style. Fashion bloggers sported barely-there pink coats, complimenting their muted ensembles.

Camo Chic

Everybody loves a bit of camouflage and no wardrobe is complete without some in there! Camo made a strong comeback in the winter, but that look is only going to get stronger over the spring/summer 2015 season appearing on sweaters, jackets and accessories. Military inspired clothing such as camouflage and its related colours, for example, olive, khaki green and browns started finding their way into everyday acceptable casual fashion when adopted by anti-war protesters in the Vietnam era within the United States. From then on fashion designers took note and hints of camo prints started appearing in high end collections and fashion houses through the 60s, 70s and 80s.  It wasn’t till the 90s that ‘faux-camouflage’...
