It's an easy and stylish way to stand out

Fashion Month has officially begun, everyone! While this season's schedule may be a little confusing — Tom Ford in Los Angeles, Jeremy Scott moving to Paris, Ralph Lauren ditching the week altogether, to name a few switch-ups — that hasn't put a damper on New York Fashion Week's street style.


On Saturday, officially the second day of NYFW, we saw plenty of eye-catching ensembles across the city, from the crowd excitedly awaiting Susan Alexandra's Fall 2020 show-turned-musical (toting lots of colorful beaded bags, of course) to the line wrapped around the corner for Christopher John Rogers' second runway show. (The wait was worth it: His debut last season brought a standing ovation.)

And while there were plenty of ways to stand out — bright outerwear, fashion-forward layering, quirky accessories — one of our favorite style choices were the puffy statement sleeves among a number of showgoers. We saw this trend in a slew of versions, like a delicate sheer pastel color or a cool leather-like material. Molly Blutstein, also known as @accidentalinfluencer, doubled-down on the look, as she wore a Chopova Lowena balloon sleeve top with double the puffs and covered in a tartan plaid print. As NYFW continues, where will a full Sunday of shows take us next on the fashion front? Stay tuned to find out!

Until then, check out all of our favorite street style looks from day two of New York Fashion Week, below.

Having a soft silhouette like puffy sleeves in a hard material like (faux) leather is a great idea.

Not into puffy statement sleeves? Try statement pants. We love this shiny lime green pair. (Also, hi, Lauren!)

Or keep a chunky knit nearby. Extra style points for the shoulder-tie trick.
