If you’re struggling for clothes inspo now it’s September, we have two words for you: street style. That’s right - New York has officially kicked off fashion’s travelling circus of catwalk shows and the influencers are out in full force. Of course, the vagaries of Manhattan’s weather system - one minute stormy, the next minute sweltering, sigh - means that it’s the hardest city to dress for and, consequently, the most varied in terms of ‘looks’. You’ve got leather coats next to teeny weeny short suits next to BLDs (that’s big long dresses). Keep scrolling for our favourites.
