Outside the fall 2021 couture shows, street style was back and better than ever. Vogue’s Senior Fashion News writer, Emily Farra, described it perfectly: showgoers showed up in more “personal, eclectic ensembles” with a “refreshing new energy.” Captured by street-style photographer Acielle, you could feel how happy everyone was to be out at shows again-you could also make the case that the must-have accessory was a smile. Who can blame us; after a year plus of virtual fashion weeks and digital shows, it’s more than exciting to see a return to all-out dressing up and being together again, no matter the sartorial camp you identify with.
Fashion folks came out in flocks-from well-dressed couples to stylishly coordinated friend duos. There were minimalists and maximalists, no shortage of the models off duty, and of course, an endless amount of outfit inspiration worth celebrating.
