Fashion Week street style is notorious for being ridiculous, sometimes even more so than the fashion on the catwalks themselves. But for this bevy of bundled-up beauties we spotted at the recently concluded Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week, there’s no way they were suffering or shivering just for the sake of getting snapped. No bare legs, rolled-up ankle cuffs, or open-toed shoes for these ladies; it’s all about expert layering, thoughtful accessorizing, and taking advantage of the fact that in these temperatures, you can actually wear more clothing.
