The 44 Best Street Style Looks From New York Fashion Week SS23 (So Far)

Category is: take it to the streets.

By Ava Gilchrist
It's been a minute, New York.
While the runways of New York may have you believing they're the main event, every industry insider knows that the actual New York Fashion Week doesn't take place on the catwalk, but on the streets.
This year's Spring/Summer iteration of NYFW has drawn an illustrious crowd of A-listers, fashion influencers, supermodels and stylists who are effortlessly showing the latest ready-to-wear collections from our favourite established and emerging designers.
Of course, with countless after-hours soirées, post-show parties, award shows and not even counting the over 80 collection presentations themselves, it's only natural that these fashion insiders are pulling out all the stops to make sure their street style ensembles rival that of what's seen on the runway.
Between Elsa Hosk taking to the streets of SoHo to model her latest venture (a Scandi-inspired fashion line called HELSA), and Kendall Jenner brining the SoCal chic and sun to an otherwise grey-skied week, these supermodels are proving that the upcoming fashion month is in safe hands.
Oh, and that the model off-duty wardrobe will always be relevant, lust-worthy and top place on our mood boards for seasons to come.
However, it seems that the only thing not going to schedule is the chaotic weather forecast planned for the remainder the week.
Tommy Hilfiger's return to NYFW was mired by a heavy downpour à la Alexander McQueen's untitled Spring/Summer 1998 show. Models including Lila Moss and Precious Lee had to navigate a puddled runway in heeled stilettos, but what's fashion without a bit of drama?
Sure, the schedule says Spring/Summer, but the category is clearly wet-weather realness.
With our own Bureau of Meteorology has predicated another abysmal summer thanks to La Niña, there's no better opportunity to plan our upcoming silly season ensembles than now.
Because who else can prove that soft layering and long dresses are a trans-seasonal staple than the stylish front row at NYFW?
So, before you put your blazers and suit pants away, and bid your umbrellas adieu for another season, keep scrolling below for the very best street style to come from New York Fashion Week.
After all, we'll all be sartorially channelling these looks soon enough.
