Fashion week is about newness. And while the runway offers a sense of what fashion houses are producing in terms of design, the streets outside reveal what’s new in style. This is where the fashion industry’s power players exercise their sartorial muscles in a safe space to experiment with new pairings and fanciful items. So even if you’re not prepared to recreate the looks exactly, let the ideas inspire you to stretch the limits of your own wardrobe. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the items from the streets of NYFW we can’t stop thinking about.

What better way to stay cozy than a balaclava? It’s like a beanie for your entire head—but much more stylish when rendered in slinky cashmere in muted hues.
