3 Favorite Street Style Looks & How to Wear Them

5 years ago

The runway shows aren't the only exciting part about Fashion Week; the street style is what I look forward to the most! Maybe one day I'll be able to afford the looks coming down the runway, but in the meantime I seek my personal style inspiration from the fashionable women attending the shows. I've selected three of my favorite looks from New York Fashion Week and shown you how to achieve a similar look on a budget.

Channel West Coast Lucky Magazine Editor and style blogger Marlien Rentmeester by wearing a bright golden jacket.

Throw on a pair of black pants, a simple white shirt and black sandals to complete the look. Step it up a notch and try adding an embellished necklace, like the feather one above. You can also style this wardrobe staple with jeans or over a simple shift dress. Be bold and try other bright hues, like pink, cobalt and emerald!

Get the look: Caslon Blazer, $59. Calvin Klein Pants, $28.94. Feather Necklace, $10.80. Nine West Heels, $44.50.

The ever-cool Elin Kling shows us that distressed, baggy jeans can look chic!

Grab your comfiest boyfriend jeans, throw on a thin neutral tank and top it off with a polished blazer. Pointy toe pumps and a small clutch complete this minimalistic look.

Get the look: Topshop Collarless Blazer, $130. Gap Boyfriend Jeans, $69.95. Gray Tank, $8.99. Sole Society Suede Pumps, $59.99. George J. Love Clutch, $66.00.

Linda Fargo of Bergdorf Goodman's leather skirt is (of course) perfectly on-trend for fall and more versatile than you would think! Wear it with a simple blouse as Linda did for work, and swap it out for a tight tee shirt and funky heels at night. Don't be afraid to mix brown and black -- embrace this winning combo!

Get the look: Topshop Leather Skirt, $190.00 Dorothy Perkins Blouse, $49.00. Bauble Bar Tassel Necklace, $32.00. Mango Shopper Bag, $49.99. Nine West Sandals, $36.00.
