Spring Summer NYFW 18 Street Style Inspo

How to get the look at Designer Op Shop. 

New York Fashion Week has come around once again, previewing the collections for Spring Summer 2018. As much we find what the designers have come up with year after year exciting, it truly is the street style of New York that empowers us. 
Seeing individuals have the ability to mix their personality with seasonal trends are inspiring. There is something about New York Fashion Week that is so refreshing. Here are our select favourite's we've seen this year on the streets of NYC throughout fashion week. Divided into three separate trends - embroidery, colour and our personal favourite Vintage x Modern. Although at Designer Op Shop we sell pre-loved designer clothing, vintage and accessories... this doesn't mean you have to miss out on shopping the latest trends. Here we show you our inspo followed by how to get the look at DOS! 

Vintage x Modern ⁃ Some may beg to differ that my favourite look (and the whole epitome of Designer Op Shop) can classify as a trend...But I kid you not this year it is REAL. People are really embracing vintage but to do this and not look head to toe 80's vibe is to mix it up with modern. Plaid in shades of grey is making a huge comeback; from blazers to dresses this vintage inspired look sure is here to stay for the season ahead. Pair it with some killer denim and a white shirt for the low-key weekend look. Slogan tees are also big this year and are a great way to have a little fun with your outfit. Ensure the message is what you want to connect yourself with because after all, the way you dress is an expression of how you want to be perceived.  Wear it with a leather mini and a vintage denim jacket for perfect trans-seasonal spring weather attire. The perfect way to add a little vintage inspo to your outfit is through your accessories. The statement earring and the mini bag are huge trends the season both inspired by eras from the 60's-80's.

Embroidery ⁃ Largely inspired by high-end designers such a Gucci, embroidery expresses beautiful attention to detail. Although embroidery has been around forever, it has come back this season in a much more modern way added on to accessories and denim. Fashion after all is a form of art and expression, so why not wear a piece of art such as embroidery.

Denim patchwork clutch $45 ⁃ Embroidered clutch $55 

Colour ⁃ This is an exciting and refreshing trend to see span across the streets of New York. Fashion 'it' girls and guys almost always associate themselves with only wearing black or dark tones. This year we have seen head to toe shades of burgundy or olive, bold colour blocking and pops of colour. It is clear that colour is the new black. When is there a better time to embrace colour other than the start of spring?
