On the runway: Part ‘90s resurgence and part neo-romanticism, plush velvet is a soft statement maker. At Ulla Johnson, velvet offered luxe refinement to this swoon-worthy bohemian frock in rich mustard.
On the street: Velvet was a smart choice for staying warm and polished during winter’s freezing temperatures.

On the runway: R13’s debut NYFW show celebrated the misfit with a distinctly punk rock twist. Oversized jackets, distressing, and rocker tees were layered together for impact, but could all be worn solo with ease.
On the street: Layers of jackets with a barely-there-skirt (or are those cutoffs under there?) and fishnets create a look that’s on the glam side of punk rock.
Buy it now: An oversized jacket is the perfect way to pull together grunge-inspired layers, and this current moto style from R13 gets extra points for leopard print.
On the street: With so many iterations of the bomber out there, it’s all about choosing the nuances you like best, whether it be print, embroidery, texture, or fit.
Buy it now: The sporty execution of contrasting nubuck and silk makes this cropped Rick Owens bomber a modern must-have.
On the runway: For a brighter take on burgundy, raspberry offers a feminine touch but still channels this season’s ‘70s vibe. At Altuzarra, the shade popped against black, forest green, and paisley prints.
On the street: Varying shades of the fruity hue make for a cheerful mashup on the otherwise drab wintery streets.
Buy it now: The color of this Moroccan-inspired Isabel Marant caftan is bold enough to pair with a leather jacket during colder days, yet fresh enough to wear when the sun shines bright come spring.
5. HAND KNITS
On the runway: Orley took the idea of the classic fisherman sweater and added an artful hand, creating a coolly modern knit that we were tempted to grab off the runway.
On the street: Chunky layers of cashmere and wool are key for staying warm when the temperatures are as low as they were during NYFW. We love the way this look combines different stitches for that hand-knit look and feel.
