This Wardrobe Basic Is Becoming Extinct Among the Fashion Crowd

Allyson Payer

Truth be told, you can learn just as much observing the various fashion weeks' attendees as you can the runway shows and presentations, and that's precisely what we've been doing. More specifically, a big part of what we look for are the things the stylish attendees aren't wearing anymore. We've noticed a major one at recent fashion weeks, which was only solidified by this NYFW.

While outerwear isn't always the most common thing to see at the spring shows (it is still summer in New York, after all), there was a bit of a cool snap in NYC this week, and the fashion crowd immediately started wearing jackets when the temperatures fell. One style that we're seeing very few of? Leather moto jackets.

Now, before you immediately list yours on eBay, we'd be remiss not to point out that wearing an attention-getting look is key among the street style crowd. While leather jackets are and always will be a wardrobe staple, they're a bit more basic than the fashion crowd demands, especially at an event like fashion week, where street style photographers are swarming.

So what are we seeing instead? Lots of oversize blazers in bold colours and plaid, reworked trench coats, faux fur, and animal prints. It all seems to be working in their favour, and we have the street style photos to prove it. Keep scrolling to see the trending styles and shop them for yourself.

Of course, if you still love your old faithful, not to worry. We have 10 outfits to wear with a leather jacket.
