LFW street style edit

It's that time of year again. The time when bloglovin, instagram, and twitter feeds are flooded with street style pics, blurry runway shots, and presentation reviews. Due to the sheer volume of it all, I've fallen behind on keeping up with the constant flow. And from what I've seen of NYFW, I don't think I'm missing out on much (street style wise.) Last year many people had toned down their outfits after Suzy Menkes started a wave of backlash against outlandish, peacocking outfits. It seems this time around all that has been forgotten. And it hurts my eyes.

There were so many weird, garish layering looks that confused me beyond belief. I can appreciate a good fluffy coat, but not with 5 other statement pieces packed along. And oh, you're going to complain how it's 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) outside but then proceed to have bare legs while draping your coat over your shoulders, instead of, I don't know, wearing it?

And then there was London. London is usually my favorite in terms of street style, and this year was no exception. While the street style wasn't the best, it was definitely an improvement from NY.

Obviously I don't have any sort of background in fashion so my opinions are from a plebeian's point of view, but some of the choices were just screaming "give me all the attention!!" instead of "yeah I'm a fashionable gal just living the fashionable life at fashion week."

Was I the only one who felt this way? What are your thoughts on fashion week street style so far?

  1. I much prefer LFW than NYFW for street style! It's just so much better in my opinion!

  2. I love these shots, and I love all of the pink, deep reds, and navy blues that everyone seems to be wearing.

  3. I actually really enjoyed the street style from this past NYFW season. It is true that some people overdid the statement pieces but I think that was the beauty of it. Not only did that keep them warm, lol, but it was somewhat experimental and definitely brazen. Of course, there are probably those who were just doing it in a poser-esque fashion, peacocking and all, but at least the ones I seemed to come across on the internet were mostly for practicality's sake. I don't know, I really liked it :)
    I also love London's street style during this time because it's a more polished type of bold. They have fewer weather extremes, generally, so they have more room for outfit arrangement in an eye-pleasing way. I haven't looked into this season's looks too much but from what I see here, I love the variety in colors and silhouettes! I love Peony and Alexa's looks and the others' flowy midi skirts and patterned fur coats.

  7. I love street style snaps from fashion weeks and over all street style snaps. Have you notice what a difference it's when is FW. Sometimes it feels like people just try too much, I love to see when people stay true to their style and not overdress looking a bit crazy. You know what I mean. But it's fun anyway to see.
