DailyBuzz Style 9×9: Runway to Real Way

As fashion week winds down, I’ve been having a blast looking through all the slideshows from my favorite designers’ presentations. Just as fun, at least in my opinion, is looking through street style galleries. You see some truly zany things (um, this coat, anyone?), but for every crazy outfit, I can also find one that I think is super inspired.

When DailyBuzz Style put out a call for participants in this month’s 9×9, with the theme of “Runway to Real Way,” I had an idea: find four of my favorite street style looks, then find pieces that could let anyone recreate them!

Being that it’s February in New York, it was no surprise to see most of the fashionistas bundled up against the cold. But, there were still tinges of spring here and there — floral pants, a blushing polka dot shirt, or a vibrant, multi-colored maxi skirt. What I like most about the above outfits is that while every single lady looks ready to attend a fashion show, they’re all still ensembles that the rest of us can wear anytime, anywhere.

Check out how to get the looks, with shopping resources, right after the jump!

Look No. 1:
Old Navy Black Skinnies | Drew Blouse | Double Breasted Cardigan | Faux Fur Scarf | Black Satchel Bag

Look No. 2:
DKNY Floral Pants | J. Crew Cable Knit Sweater | Lace Up Fur Booties | Puffer Jacket

Look No. 3:
Alice + Olivia Skirt/Tank Dress | TopShop Faux Leather Jacket | Platform Heels

Look No. 4:
Equipment Earl Polka Dot Blouse (here or here)Old Navy Cable Knit Sweater |  Old Navy Black Skinnies | Wedge Booties | Halogen Bucket Tote | Sanctuary Faux Fur Coat

How’d I do? Do you have a favorite look here?

    Wow, you nailed this! I am really loving the maxi dress + leather jacket, which usually isn’t my thang but it looks so easy, breezy and effortlessly chic. Happy weekend! xo

    Looking through the street style photographs is definitely my favorite part of fashion week! Happy to see that faux fur is still in. Maybe I’ll get myself to buy a vest next fall.

    I am so in love with the top left girl’s outfit! I love everything, especially her bag, but last week (completely out of the blue) my boyfriend said to me “just please… whatever you do, NEVER wear anything with fur!”. uhhh, sorry love… I’ve been inspired! haha
