The 15 Best Street Style Looks We've Spotted in New York So Far

Over the next month here at Who What Wear, we will be inundated with thousands and thousands of street style images from New York, London, Milan and Paris, and as always, we will click through as many as possible to bring you the best looks from the street you'll want to bookmark—or copy immediately.

New York Fashion Week is now in full swing, and it arrived at the very same time as a treacherous snow blizzard. So while we are sure we will see mule kitten heels and logo T-shirts everywhere this month, so far the style in NYC is all about beanie hats, puffer jackets, sturdy boots and practical tracksuit bottoms. But showgoers don't let a little (or a lot) of sludge and snow get in the way of style, as we have already spotted some of S/S 17's biggest trends, including oversize earrings and statement sleeves.

Scroll through the gallery below to see fifteen of our favourite looks from New York so far.

Style Notes: Leandra Medine shows that a clever way to jazz up your old favourite brogues is to pair them with statement red ankle socks, a styling trick that was featured in Céline's S/S 17 collection.

Style Notes: Traditionally, mixing shades of red would be a no-go, but Camille Charrière proves that sometimes it pays to break the rules with her orange-red puffer coat and deep crimson leather skirt.

Style Notes: Ever since Emma Watson wore her £87 Veja trainers, they have been one of our favourite new sneaker labels, and here they look a perfect match with these tracksuit bottoms with sporty stripes down the seams.

Style Notes: You might have noticed by the snow in these pictures that it is freezing in New York right now. Stylist Ada Kokosar had an innovative approach to layering, wearing a fur coat underneath her oversize green parka. Not two coats we'd normally pair, but it worked!

Style Notes: Another item we can expect to see having a moment on the street style circuit this year is the '90s Fila sweatshirts, here worn underneath a tailored grey coat.

Style Notes: Furry handbags and accessories are set to be big in 2017 (even VB is backing this novelty trend) and it's convenient given the current temperatures in New York—these furry mittens are adorable.
