Sheer dresses have been a popular key item this New York Fashion Week. We love the contrast of the striking green sock boot, bold cat-eye sunglasses, and a blue crushed velvet crossbody bag.

We’ve seen tons of peasant dresses hit the streets of New York this Fashion Week. The all-over ditzy polka dot print and bold black buttons modernize this favorite key item. The look is dressed down with lug sole boots and contrasting laces, chunky metal and leather bracelets, and the pouch bag is updated with a circle handle.

Round sunglasses and mini trunk bags complement elegant sequin dresses and short ruffle minis.

Lace-up ankle boots and oversized clutches and sunglasses stand out among the mix and match of vertical and horizontal pinstripes.

Off-the-shoulder trench coats are a must have for the Spring/Summer 18 season, paired with a skinny leather belt and cut-off denim. The bright pink slingbacks add a perfect pop of color to the look.

The conductor hat has been a huge hit on the streets this New York Fashion Week, paired with a delicate ruffle tiered dress, top-handle bag, and a pair of Converse sneakers to dress down the look.

The shocking pink hue of these corduroys is the perfect pop of color in this look, complementing her matching pearl necklace and earring set as well as black heart sunglasses.

This white accordion handbag accompanies a white pair of round sunglasses and 60s inspired boots, adding contrast to her denim on denim look. Distressed denim is updated with poetry script print and silk handkerchief fabric is added to the bottom half of the jean.

The trucker jacket is updated in fun prints with puff sleeves, while denim skirts are hitting ankle length. The sock sneaker and top handle trunk bag are two new accessories we’ve been seeing a lot of during New York Fashion Week.

Classic tailored blazers are adding more curves to this look, paired with a pair of neutral colored leggings. The focus is drawn to the polka dot pumps and velvet pouch bag taking this look to the next level.

This grey belted shift dress is complemented with a shocking red circle bag, crushed velvet wrap heels, and clear frame sunglasses.

3D florals pop on this sheer bright red skirt, paired with a bell sleeve v-neck and a chunky pearl necklace.

“Tie Me Up” skirts worn with oversized casual sweatshirts are paired with statement stilettoes to dress up the look. The oversized aviator frames continue on trend as an alternative to classic sunglasses, and the net bag has been spotted more this season than any in the past.


Thigh-high boots are the perfect pairing for a ruffle hem mini skirt and the waist bag is the new “it bag” of the season.

The orange hue of this leather woven clutch brings out the florals in the dress. We love how she paired this elegant dress with a pair of perfect white mod booties, a conductors hat, and a shearling varsity vest.

Not only has the color red stood out on the runway at New York Fashion Week, but we’ve been seeing it all over the streets. This maraschino cherry red leather skirt perfectly matches the feather stilettos and heart-shaped sunglasses.
