Fashion Month has officially begun, everyone! While this season's schedule may be a little confusing — Tom Ford in Los Angeles, Jeremy Scott moving to Paris, Ralph Lauren ditching the week altogether, to name a few switch-ups — that hasn't put a damper on New York Fashion Week's street style.
On Saturday, officially the second day of NYFW, we saw plenty of eye-catching ensembles across the city, from the crowd excitedly awaiting Susan Alexandra's Fall 2020 show-turned-musical (toting lots of colorful beaded bags, of course) to the line wrapped around the corner for Christopher John Rogers' second runway show. (The wait was worth it: His debut last season brought a standing ovation.)
And while there were plenty of ways to stand out — bright outerwear, fashion-forward layering, quirky accessories — one of our favorite style choices were the puffy statement sleeves among a number of showgoers. We saw this trend in a slew of versions, like a delicate sheer pastel color or a cool leather-like material. Molly Blutstein, also known as @accidentalinfluencer, doubled-down on the look, as she wore a Chopova Lowena balloon sleeve top with double the puffs and covered in a tartan plaid print. As NYFW continues, where will a full Sunday of shows take us next on the fashion front? Stay tuned to find out!
