How to wear colour according to New York Fashion Week

Just because summer is on its way out it doesn’t mean you have to wave goodbye to your wardrobe’s brightest shades. Here’s how to wear colour according to the street style at New York Fashion Week.

Even though the sun is currently gracing us with its presence, any serious fashionista will already have their mind on their autumn wardrobe.

A drop in the temperature – while as much as we like to try and forget about it, is inevitably on the horizon – tends to signal the arrival of a moodier colour palette. Upbeat summery colour palettes and bold prints are often put into hibernation for winter and replaced with inky shades of navy, grey and black.

But even though grey and gloomy weather might be a couple of months away, it doesn’t mean that you have to start planning a wardrobe that’s going to mimic the impending autumnal weather. As all of our favourite street style stars in the northern hemisphere have reminded us at New York Fashion Week AW2021: dressing for cooler climes doesn’t have to be dull.

From electric pink to neon yellow and clashing out-there colours, there were plenty of bold hues spotted on the streets of New York this past week. With barely a hint of grey or black insight, the best street style fashion from the Big Apple has us rethinking our autumn wardrobes already.
