4 fashion hacks from NYFW 2018

2018-03-05

There’s more to look forward to in February than Valentine’s Day. It’s the start of a series of fashion weeks with NYC kicking it off first. Street fashion this period is always exciting. After all, when the world’s most stylish people flock together, you can expect a heap-load of outfit inspiration that makes you go "Now why didn’t I think of that?". This NYFW, we’ve compiled a list of fashion hacks for you to up your dressing game and impress people all around.

1. Be bold with colors

The streets of NYC this week are particularly colorful as no one shies away from big, bold hues. One way to wear colors without being overwhelmed by them is to ground a shade you’ve chosen with neutral colors like white, brown, black, or dark blue.

2. Statement outerwear

With the biting wind still blowing, it’s important to have a coat that’s able to keep you warm while helping you make a bold statement at the same time. To do so, look for textured and patterned ones.

Colored puffer coats are a popular choice, but if you’re looking for something a little daring, why not consider something with prints or a little more texture?

3. Fashionable footwear

Equally important as coats, shoes are what keep you comfortable. With spring still a couple of days (or weeks) away, boots are the obvious choice to keep your feet snug and warm. But if you’re constantly on your feet rushing for events and appointments one after another, consider slipping into a pair of sneakers or running shoes. Ultra-comfy and chunky, they give you fashion points while not compromising on comfort. Pair them with boldly patterned or vibrant-hued socks for a nice contrast.

4. Layer, layer, layer

How do you make something you’ve worn frequently look different? You layer them, of course! Be it blouse on top of a shirt or a dress with a pair of jeans, there are a million and one ways for you to mix and match the items you have in your wardrobe. The possibilities are endless! The key to a good combination is to remember that an item should always be a platform for the other piece(s) to shine. For example, a simple white t-shirt can elevate a coat that’s layered on top of denim.
