Best of London Fashion Week Fall 2015 Streetstyle69

First of all I’d like to point out the struggle I went through to find a title for this post that is not “London Calling”. Believe me, it’s almost impossible. The one I came up with isn’t less tacky but still, it’s something. Secondly, I found London Fashion Week street style a lot more boring (never thought I’d say this) than New York, even though New York was freezing, so it was a lot easier to narrow down best looks (to 100 photos, of course, it wasn’t THAT boring). Sweaters and scarves made headlines on the streets of London instead of the endless line of furs witnessed in the big apple and it made me realize that I HAVE TO move somewhere with a regular winter. I can’t keep living like this.

New York, NYFW FW 2015 day 7 Celine Aargaard LFW fanny packhanneli with fanny pack

One was courage (Lemaire Fall 2013), two was warming up (Steven Alan Fall 2014) and three was the mark of a trend (Céline Resort 2015). Accordingly on the streets; Hanneli, Pernille and finally Céline (the blogger behind hippie hippie milkshake) showed how much we desperately need a fancy fanny pack and set our hands free for as long as we can.

NYFW Fall 2015 Streetstyle14

I tried guys, I really tried. I did my best to narrow down the street style looks of New York fashion week, I wanted to limit them to something like 50 so that I can make the post “50 best looks of NYFW” but I couldn’t and you’ll understand why when you see the following 135 (yes, hundred and thirty five) looks. I couldn’t leave any of them out. In my defense though, there were around 500 so I still call this a triumph. (To check them all, head over to my pinterest.)

Trends to take note of: FURS (capitalized, it was that big), all grey, all neutrals, turtlenecks under everything, midi knit dresses paired with oversized coats and flats, long assymetrical sweaters over tapered pants and finally bare legs, if you dare. Final word; kudos to everyone who attended the shows looking this good in the middle of a polar vortex. Apparently love of fashion not only feeds you (SATC) but keeps you warm too.

Winterized Unicolor

Winterized Unicolor

NYFW fall 2015 streetstyle unicolor 7a

It’s all been about (shades of) winter unicolor in freezing New York this week, as showgoers push their limits to look good under extreme weather conditions. Cream and white, camel and brown, pastel pink and grey, burgundy and coral or simply shades of grey, blue, black or green confiscated the streets and even though I break out in hives everytime I see outfits without any black in them, I do think they look pretty amazing so far.

Because Winter IS Cold

Because Winter IS Cold

winter street style 37

With NYFW around the corner and blizzards everywhere, people started freaking out over what to wear (or how to look nice in general when the weather literally bites) and I think as someone living in one of the coldest cities in the world I have the right to give an advice or two. Don’t get me wrong; usually I’m bundled up in my down coat, face unrecognizable under a huge scarf and beanie & sliding on ice with my warmest winter boots but at least, as uncomfortable as it is, I know how to look (as) chic (as possible) if necessary.

First things first: anything faux is your enemy. I know the moral burden of wearing real fur and leather, but if you don’t want the real thing then just go with wool, mohair wool or down coats. Faux fur, faux leather or anything plastic will just make you feel colder.

Second: keeping in mind that you have to wear several layers, choose your outer coat an oversize shape or at least buy one size bigger. How it usually goes for me is; a layer of really thin cotton sweater underneath (you can also wear thermal sweaters but they don’t help when you are overwhelmed with heat) then a cashmere, mohair or wool sweater over that, topped with a padded, felt or leather jacket. On top of all these, wear your fur, wool, shearling or what have you coat.

COATS

When it comes to boots, don’t forget that sole is the most important part of the shoe that you should be concerned about; it has to be thick. One other thing to take note of is as warm as suede keeps, it’s not the best choice if you are walking on snow since they get wet really easily. Again, only real leather would protect your feet and if possible, go for shoes with plush, fur or shearling inside.

BOOTS

There’s not much to say about accessories but to always find a way to cover your ears, especially if you wear your hair up. In extreme colds, you may consider wearing two scarves: one to shield your face, the other to cover around your neck. For the best feel, don’t hesitate to splurge and buy cashmere scarves; it’s the only thing that touches your skin all day.

ACCESSORIES

Now, I rounded up 65 of my all time favorite real winter streetstyle looks that can be perfect inspiration. There’s no need to feel depressed because you look bad or freeze your ass off as a compromise.

STAY WARM FOLKS!
