close up: fashion week street style
all the accessories that caught our eye in new york, london, milan, and paris.
On the runways is where the bulk of the action goes down at Fashion Week in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, but the scene off the catwalk can be just as awesome and inspirational--you just need to know where to look. Instead of trying to capture the big picture of the best head-to-toe outfits, we asked our intrepid street style photographer, Melodie Jeng of The NYC Streets to zoom in on the little things that make an outfit special. It's all about attention to detail, dudes.
If you're thinking that a gallery of bags, shoes, hats, sunglasses, and backpacks might be a little boring, well, you're wrong! These accessories aren't for the faint of heart, they're those unexpected statement pieces that will take any outfit from zero to hero in a snap, like a giant furry clutch or some floral embellished sunglasses. You can also pick up some pretty innovative tips for how to spice your basics from these pics, like cutting heart shaped holes in the ankle of your black pants or using rock climbing rope as an alternative to a boring camera strap.
Sit back and get your clicking finger ready to see all the accessories that inspire us from Fashion Weeks around the world, just be ready to revamp your entire closet when you're done. There's always more room for shoes in a closet right? Right!?
