Pinteresting Things : NYFW Spring 2014 Street Style

Giovanna Battaglia makes a bold black + white statement in Céline

I sometimes find the street style of New York Fashion Week to be almost as interesting as the looks coming down the runways. I've been pinning my favorite looks onto my Style Files board on Pinterest. These are standouts for me because they're chicly elegant and effortlessly stylish. It may not be a coincidence that they're on the modest side as well because as far as I'm concerned, it's never fashionable to reveal too much skin. Do any of these looks speak to you?

I love them all, Rowena! You have such an amazing taste and sense of style! I'm just like you: I don't like clothes that are too revealing (I mean, crop top? Really?) and chic and understated elegance is always way to go for me. I'm pretty much obsessed with everything Giovanna wears, and I'm also smitten with Ashley's prune dress: it's gorgeous!

I hope you are well, sweetie!

All of them are gorgeous. I've seen some with revealing skin that are elegant and chic, so sometimes it works, but you have to be wise on what to choose. And showing a bit of skin doesn't mean there is no elegance, it just depends on the look. All of these ladies look wonderful :) xx

Wow! I like the all black outfit and the lacy black dress. I prefer wearing shorts though. I know Roro would love the dress with the flower prints :D

Definitely effortless. These ladies just look chic and comfortable and not over the top like the way some people tend to dress for NYFW.

This is the kind of street style I'd like to see more over fashion weeks. True style often escapes street style photographers.

i agree--totally love street style

I've seen Kate Hudson quite a few times this NYFW getting pinned to the max. I am so besotted with Olivia Palermo's bag. What bag is it? I MUST know!

All these ladies are looking fab :-)

Alexandra Zakharova said...

I personally think like that, too much skin and bare parts of the body, never looks stylish or chic. It's vulgarism. Though, it's my own way of thinking, I'm never blaming anybody for being too lightly dressed or anything like that. It's always up to us to chose.
Great post and superb outfits! Adorable)
Wish you a blessed day ahead!

All these looks are completely swoon worthy, wish I had the opportunity to dress like this everyday! Thanks for the tip and for lending me your opinion on my last post. Happy End of the Week!

They do all look very nice but I think I like the 1st 2-3 best.

Tomatoes are in season but they start ripening in July if you plant them in May. Mine are right on schedule for when I planted them. I've never gone back and watched a drama I have given up on but there are so many in there so I haven't been bored enough yet. I liked the British Office better than the US version {maybe because I saw it first?} and I think I saw some of Coupling and liked it. I will find out the name of the one I saw recently and let you know!

Giovanna Battaglia - beautiful attire.

Persephone said...

That first outfit is stunning. It makes me want a big statement belt like that. It really makes the outfit. I also love that Jason Wu dress.

May the Force be with you.
