Fashion Outside the Tents: Men’s Street Style

By guest blogger Alejandro Lopez of Adentro Style

Men's Street Style

In and around Lincoln Center this week, guys were all about showing off their boots. To replicate this cold-weather, street-style trend, simply roll up your pants (that goes for jeans and chinos) to right above the tops of your shoes. The best part? This look works whether you’re tall, short, or somewhere in between.

Fashion Week Trend of the Day Banner

Looks like we might have the next emerald on our hands. Like autumnal foliage, shades of burnt orange have been popping up on the catwalks left and right. From 3.1 Phillip Lim to Narciso Rodriguez, it seems the warm and utterly rich hue will be a top color for the fall/winter 2013 season.

Fashion Week Trend of the Day Banner

A forward march of models in hardware-laden boots and strong utilitarian separates (with details like army-green epaulets and cargo pockets), Prabal Gurung’s catwalk proved military-inspired looks will be a must-have for next fall and winter’s wardrobe regimen.

Fashion Week Trend of the Day Banner

It’s official: plaid is having a moment… yet again. From full-on checkered shirtdresses at Suno to sophisticated tartan touches at Victoria Beckham, the classic cold-weather pattern is popping up on all the runways (and we’re not complaining).

The Fall 2013 Runways Have Spoken: It’s Time to Borrow from the Boys

Fashion Week Trend of the Day Banner

If Nicole Miller’s collection at Lincoln Center is any indication, it looks like we’ll be getting more masculine next winter. Dubbing her line “Menswear With a Twist: Raiding the Boyfriend’s Closet,” Miller’s show on Friday night came packed with black-on-black formfitting tuxedos, strong boxy blazers, and a few girly touches by way of plaid tartan skirts – because it wouldn’t be Nicole Miller without a few showstopping prints, of course.

The Fall 2013 Runways Have Spoken: Layer, Layer, Layer

Fashion Week Trend of the Day Banner

After the full-fledged blizzard at Lincoln Center, this trend was (thankfully) seen on and off the runways. From BCBGMAXAZRIA and Kenneth Cole to Timo Weiland, draped apparel and layered, loose silhouettes were catwalk favorites.

The Fall 2013 Runways Have Spoken: Grunge is a Go

Fashion Week Trend of the Day Banner

It looks like grunge and punk are poised to make a comeback. But unlike past years (90s flannel, anyone?), the trend is touch more feminine, as showcased in Richard Chai’s Fall/Winter 2013 Collection. Pairing sequin pants and flouncy dresses with baggy clay-hued separates and combat boots, Chai proved tough and pretty can coexist.

The Fall 2013 Runways Have Spoken: Beanies are Back

Fashion Week Trend of the Day Banner

While there were plenty of showstopping accessories on the BCBGMAXAZRIA runway yesterday, it was their brigade of beanies that had everyone talking. Like a cherry on a sundae, the slouchy knit hats deliciously topped off the label’s embroidered tunics and printed shifts.

How to Dress for New York Fashion Week: 4 Key Street-Style Pieces

BLG-1244

It’s official: New York Fashion Week has arrived. And while next fall’s trends are making their debut on the catwalk, it’s the outfits outside the tents getting all the wear-now attention. So whether or not you’re headed to Lincoln Center, dress with the best of the street-style swans thanks to these four must-have Fashion Week pieces.

Oversized Shades
With 54 shows to go to and dozens of post-runway parties, a fashionista can’t always get the recommended seven hours of sleep – and that’s where these bag-hiding shades come in. Can you say lifesaver?

Bright Bracelets
There’s a blizzard on the way – be sure to bundle up. To add a pop of personality to your puffer, let a few bright bracelets peek out from those jacket cuffs.

A Structured Satchel
From storing your iPad and makeup to carrying between-show snacks, a big bag is a necessity. And if that bag happens to be Hermès, well, you’ve just won the entire street-style game.

An LBD
From the front row to after-show parties, the LBD is a Fashion Week must. Bonus points if you rock one (like the above) with this season’s on-trend leather insets.

Our How to Dress for NYFW: Key Looks Boutique opens Thursday, February 7, at 3PM ET.
