New York Fashion Week is underway and although a lot of the trends for the upcoming seasons come from inside the shows, there is still much to be said of the recurring looks on the streets of NYC.

The black and white look is in, as if it were ever out. Many of our #streetstyle looks kept it simple with these two colors, a sure way to never go wrong. The line ‘everything looks better in black and white’ couldn’t be truer. If you are aiming for a chic and simple look try this color combination.

Another notable gem is the pattern and print trend seen throughout the city. If you want all looks in your direction, this is the way to do it. It’s almost impossible not to look at the girl wearing a dress with eyes. Floral patterns are also a very popular look and aim to keep the feel of spring alive. These funky patterns are a definite growing trend.

One word comes to mind when describing the #streetstyle at the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, hot! Both the weather and the fashion was enough to make you short of breath.

Fashionistas braced the heat to strut their best looks from simple and classic to edgy and retro. There was something for everyone. The Lincoln Center was full of unique fashions from elaborate gowns to grunge looks and everything in between. Models, bloggers and editors alike swarmed the scene in their best summer attires.

The most popular looks included lots of black, white and neutral colors from head to toe. There were also a few trips back in time with some looks from the seventies encompassing the flared pant look, as well as the shift dress looks from the sixties.

A lot of the #streetstyles also included wide-leg trousers and full skirts, the bigger, the better and of course lots of fabulous sunglasses to keep out that NYC glare.

If you’re looking for fresh ideas and must haves for your closet then put your shades on and prepare to see some bright stars straight from the streets of NYC.

Speaking of stars, we managed to catch a certain global fashionista/superstar (hint- it’s only bloomin’ Rihanna!) hitting up the Alexander Wang show looking immaculate in denim. Have a look at our exclusive video below of her arriving and check out our interviews with some other bloggers too!

Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? Certainly not us!

Couldn’t help but take notice of these fashion divas as they took the scene by storm in their classy attires; pure power dressing vs peaceful hippy!
