From Street Style to the Office: Fashion Week Inspiration

From Paris, Milan, London, to New York, and even Toronto – fashion weeks around the world have all eyes (and cameras) on magazine editors, models off duty, bloggers, influencers, and other fashion industry insiders and professionals in their best ensembles as they step to and from runway shows.

With the hustle and bustle of these past few weeks, higher temperatures, and less clothing, there is no better time to see up-and-coming trends for the season – and get some style inspiration while you’re at it!

With the semester coming to a close (anyone else missing out on some much-needed sleep?) and internships right around the corner, here are 5 outfits you can take from the fashion week streets straight into the office!

New York Fashion Week 2016


1. Perfect for the transition into spring weather! Miroslava Duma pairs a light, long navy trench coat with a crew neck and button up, oxfords with a metallic toe, and a boxy brown leather bag for a masculine-inspired look.

2. Take a page from it-girl Candela Novembre’s fashion book, pairing a relaxed-fit textured shirt tucked into a knee-length skirt that would allow for some movement around the office and a pair of cutout heels. 

3. Model Irene Kim (left), and bloggers Chriselle Lim (middle) and Aimee Song (right) all exemplify gorgeous versions of Spring/ Summer work wear. Go bright like Irene with a bold-coloured dress and accessories; formal and chic in a cream pantsuit like Chriselle, or dress up a classic shorts-and-tee summer outfit with a blazer (or cowboy inspired jacket like Aimee) and heels. Swap your everyday shorts for a leather pair and you’ve got the look!

4. A casual white tee lightly tucked into dark wash blue jeans and coupled with a statement blazer is comfy, laid back, and effortless-looking while simultaneously being put-together.

5. Feeling a little more daring? Leave a lasting impression in this outfit. Pair a white and black block-patterned t-shirt with an equally bold patterned statement skirt. Pull a colour from the skirt and pair it with a clutch in a different hue to complete the look.
