When you think of killer street style, one thing comes to mind: Fashion Week. Well, all the major fashion weeks came and went—New York, London, Milan, and Paris—and we conquered the street style scene. Oh, we conquered. But we also couldn't help but wonder what would happen if we decided to cover street style at another one of New York's biggest events: CMJ. So we sent our photographer, Emily Malan, to document the coolest looks from outside our favorite venues. Check out all the looks in the gallery and comment below with your favorite looks. And who knows, we may even catch you on your way to see Beach Day, First Aid Kit, Bear's Den, Jack + Eliza, and about 100 other bands.

You can't go wrong with piling on patterns.

A jaunty hat and some sassy shoes!


Slouchy fashion sweats, a leather jacket, and a ginormous scarf—enough said.


Can gold ever do you wrong?

Moral of the story: Never leave home without your purple faux fur shawl.

Layering is the name of the game.


Totally effortless, but the deal is sealed with those red brogues.
