There’s no question that street style has transformed—from its nascent years as a potentially fleeting fad, to a fundamental part of fashion week. The trends happening now are increasingly disseminated through streams of street style snaps filled with show-goers entering venues, or models stopping quickly (or, indeed, not stopping at all) for a photo as they hastily make their way to their next show.
Many of the most photographed fashion week attendees are celebrated for their style because they bring something extra to the table, whether that’s bold animal prints, or smart color-blocking. While those trends can undoubtedly help inform future shopping aesthetically, sometimes the models on the move have the best—and most utilitarian—style pointers to give.
Model or not, everyone has action-packed days where you don’t want to sacrifice style for practicality. Taking a cue from what off-duty, on-duty models wear between shows can remind you of the tried-and-true pieces in your wardrobe that won’t slow you down on even the busiest days.
