New York Fashion Week (NYFW) may have just begun, but the front rows of each show are already bringing to us some of the most hard-hitting early-fall fashion inspo we’ve seen in a while.
While New York is known for its penchant for black, colour is back in a big way with style stars like Amber An and Gina Jin embracing bold colours and prints. Scroll through the gallery and check out our favourite front-row looks at NYFW thus far.
South Korean singer Jessica Jung championed borrowing from the boys with her tuxedo-style floor-grazing gown. We love Jessica’s super girly take on the all-business suiting – and her statement-making gold clutch. She was spotted at the Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary show.

Geometry might not have been your thing in school, but good news is you don’t have to use a protractor to appreciate this cool geometric print midi dress seen on Chinese actress Gina Jin at the Longchamp fashion show.
A bold dress like this makes a serious splash, so keep your accessories to a minimum. Gina toned down her playfully-patterned number with a black shoulder bag. Step out and make a statement.

If less is more, this look is proof. “The Meg” actress went for a pretty pink number for the Ralph Lauren show. She paired her pale-pink column gown with minimal accessories and a slicked back hairstyle.

The Korean-American model gave her burgundy velvet blazer a dose of punk rock, cool-girl edge by pairing it with a pair of faux leather pants, black crossbody bag with silver hardware, and pointed toe boots.

Shirt dresses like this flame-printed midi shirt dress seen on Italian-Taiwanese television presenter, Liv Lo, is an extension of the classic button-up shirt, sans trousers. The shirt dress is smart and chic and has the power to take you everywhere from the office to after-work drinks, with the ease of looking like you’ve borrowed it from your man.
To prevent your shirt dress from giving off the “just got out of bed look,” make sure yours looks crisp not creased and pair with polished accessories like a pair simple pumps.

If gingham checks are the unofficial print of summer, plaid is is the autumnal equivalent that pairs with leather jackets and cozy sweaters. Dress them up with a slogan tee, leather jacket, and pair with bare legs and pristine white trainers or patent heeled boots for a look that’s more class act than class truant.

Hong Kong actress-model Chrissie Chau brought her bohemian spirit to the Longchamp fashion show with this floor-length billowy cream dress. Her black belt, statement necklace and clutch are the perfect items to liven up an otherwise all-white ensemble.

The key to nailing the 2018 iteration of the ‘70s flared denim jeans is to update them with a modern twist. A crisp oversized blouse, beret and nude purse helps to keep the look contemporary.
If you’re planning to sport flared jeans like Korean beauty YouTuber Risa Bae, make sure to hem your jeans according to the shoes you plan to wear. While you can wear flares with flats, pairing them with heels will help to create the illusion of longer legs.

There are plenty of possibilities when it comes to choosing how to style monogrammed bags. The knitted top and patterned skirt worn by Taiwanese entertainer Amber An struck the perfect balance between glam and garish.

The #frows aren’t immune to the polka dot trend we’ve been seeing in stores everywhere. Here, tastemaker Aimee Song wears a one-shoulder puffy sleeved gown that elevates the trend for a red carpet moment.

The Gossip Girl borrowed a style tip from the guys and wore a white oxford short under her bright and bold orange Bottega Veneta pantsuit. Her messy set of beach waves is the ultimate beauty accessory for a polished evening look.
