There's this really wild rumor that fashion people melt if they get water on them.
Just kidding! There isn't a rumor that fashion people melt if they get water on them. That's ridiculous, because if it were true, there would be a ton of high fashion, very good-looking puddles scattered across Manhattan's west side. As of this morning, there were no such puddles to be found. With that said, the clouds did come out to play and rain down on New York Fashion Week's parade yesterday. Nothing is chicer than walking around with a nice umbrella, though. It's, like, London's favorite accessory and everyone loves them some British invasion. I digress. Day six of NYFW may have been wet, but it made for quite an array of rainy day style stalking. Suddenly, the clothes people wore had to be functional, as opposed to just fashion-forward. Unsurprisingly, no one let the rain ruin their street style show. See for yourself ahead.
