I just finished attending the fall/winter 2022 season of New York Fashion Week, so I'm feeling pretty inspired by what I saw on the streets from the fashion set, especially from those who are already based in NYC. Despite it being February, the first few days were at a perfect 60°, so I luckily got to see a peak of spring fashion, and I have to say I already want this cold weather to disappear immediately. While I love to follow trends from cities like Copenhagen and Paris, the style from New York just always seems more effortless and combines fashion and function better than any other.
Ahead, see the eight spring trends—from chunky platforms to colors that'll have you standing out in the crowd—stylish New Yorkers will be wearing when the weather starts to get a tad warmer.
On the streets of NYC, I saw no shortage of kelly green. As we saw, 2021 was big for the bright color, and it's only getting bigger this year.
I've always been scared to opt for extremely saturated shades, but after seeing all the street style this past week, I'm ready for all the colors this spring. Play with colors throughout the whole look or opt for a statement accessory—it's all up to you.
Biker jackets are by no means new, but they trickled out of mass popularity for a short period. I'm predicting more of an oversize fit will be favored, so try to size up.
Fellow editor Eliza Huber has been championing the sporty-sunglasses style for quite some time, and it seems like the rest of the city is catching on. It adds such a cool element to any simple 'fit.
While I wish I could completely ditch outerwear for good the second spring hits, I know there will be some sort of transitional weather. NYC girls will definitely be trading in their black puffer jackets for quilted versions.
