While New York Fashion Week is primarily around to ogle the latest designer wares, one of our favorite byproducts of the event is street style. The fashion red carpet (aka the well-lit spots in front of all the major shows) is a chance to see what real people wear: how they transform statement pieces together, which designers are gaining traction, and how the trends introduced last season are really being worn. Celebrites sometimes show up in these pics, but personally, we're more interested in the layfolks and fashion's celebrities: magazine editors. While the formula for photograph-ready style remains fluid and ever-changing, there are certain items that always seem to take the cake. So this week, we've scoured Pinterest for a round-up of accessories we could totally see in these street style shots: everything from statement-making jewels to subtle (but roomy!) bags. Click through for our picks.
