Stepping out into the great Polar vortex that has become New York City, style insiders didn't let the bum-clenching temperatures get in the way of a little thing we like to call, NYFW. Thawing out the city from its style hibernation enforced by the below zero cold snap, the fashion pack were out in force, showing us just how winter weather dressing is done!
A surprisingly meteorologically-savvy take on extreme weather dressing, fashionistas took the chance to piggyback the latest pre-fall collections and flaunt their faultless approach to predictive dressing. Thanks to teaser capsule collections from Valentino to Fendi, big and bold with lashings of embellishment established OTT outerwear as one of the biggest trends to rock next winter.
An ironic dichotomy of fresh spring looks on the runway were in sharp contrast to the outlandish (and for more wearable) garb toted on the great streets of NYC. With statement coats turning attention away from the catwalk and towards the kerbside, there was no denying the Power of the People when it came to attractive street style this season. In celebration of the covetable looks seen front row, we pay tribute to sensible dressing with an ode to eccentric outerwear.
A strong power look that will enforce your front row credentials, this confident ensemble plays with a melange of tasteful separates that transform freezing weather into a fabulous opportunity to play with texture. A colour-block black ensemble with hints of sterling silver, this seemingly sombre outfit is a tactile take on sensible outerwear dressing. A conservative look that segways beautifully from the shining lights of NYC to the everyday elegance of home-town glory, say it in style with this strong fashion-lead ensemble by VAUGHAN.
Proving that statement coats don't have to push you out of your comfort zone, this Yves Salomon Lamb Fur Coat is a strong style-lead design that takes a two-pronged approach to a dominant street style favourite. A blend of soft touch fur and raw black leather fringing, this contemporary coat doesn't skimp on luxury, promising to become an outdoor favourite long into the fashion future.
Using the timeless pure white silk Hepburn shirt as our style anchor, this classic design is a comfortable base layer that adds a touch of formality to a dramatic ensemble. Worn under this graceful Elizabeth and James Feather-trimmed cotton-blend sweater, the VAUGHAN 'Lion in Winter' shirt adds a touch of class to an extravagant OTT ensemble. Pair with these Gothic inspired Paul Andrew Black Suede Chrysler Ankle Boots and complimentary silver Isabel Marant Leta Skinny Trousers to complete the look.
Proving that a little touch of bad weather shouldn't dampen your sense of style, this functional and fashionable VAUGHAN ensemble is a NYC week power outfit that demands instant style kudos from your fellow catwalk compatriots.
