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.
Can't you totally imagine one of NYFW's more daring editors rocking this fun Opening Ceremony hat?
This bejeweled barrette is gorgeous, but in true editor style, we can see this paired with something funky, like a moto jacket or borrowed-from-the-boys look.
Same with this thick lacework bangle. Imagine it picking out from under a sleeves-rolled fuzzy sweater or button-up.
This ring could probably be considered a weapon by FAA standards. Big enough to be fully seen in street-style photos, for sure.
This triangle bag is at once understated and showy: the shape gives it some street cred, but the color and lack of bedazzling keeps it editor-cool.
These YSL heels are just too pretty to pass up.
These Madewell flatforms are perfect for running from show to presentation and back again.
For the street style star who wants the focus on her clothing (and wants a bag big enough to carry everything from the requisite laptop and notebooks to a spare pair of heels).
Worn close to the neck, this simple scalloped necklace is like a cool metal collar.
You didn't think we'd forget one of the more important accessories for your average style star, did you? Having your nail game tight is crucial — and this subtle fluorescent look is bowling us over right now.
