Fashion editors, stylists, buyers, influencers, and celebrity front-row staples attended Fashion Month dressed to the nines to view the Spring 2020 collections. But their outfits involved styling tricks and pieces that feel very now, very Fall. Some of the best street style I saw excited me to the point that I was basically taking notes everywhere I went. "Wear your slip skirt with that tie-dye hoodie." "Cinch your strappy heels around those pooling trousers you always say are too long on you." These were more like little reminders to myself about future combinations I should try, but I also wondered if they were so attractive to me because the women wearing them appeared so confident in their clothes.
I made an effort to ask my friends in the industry what they actually felt most confident in during Fashion Month: Which outfit were they most excited to plan out? Did they initially intend to wear it in New York but then end up packing it for Paris? Was it something daring - be it a color or silhouette - they'd normally stray away from? After connecting with my peers, I ended up with a handful of looks that I'd call "the best of the best." Why are they the best of the best? Because the ladies pulling them off loved them the most, felt that they were flattering, and stopped to pose proudly for a picture. So yeah, these are combinations I'd definitely suggest trying if I were you. They've all got a solid stamp of approval.
