Has the Era of Peacocking Come to an End?

The style on the streets at New York Fashion Week is often an indicator of what people will be wearing as fashion weeks continue in London, Milan and Paris. Based on the crowds outside the latest round of shows, which ended Wednesday, one might wonder if individuality is going out of fashion. While there were plenty of stylish people, the risk-taking that makes it fun to document street style felt a bit sparse.

Original style, though it was harder to find, was not absent. Among the most exciting trends was a fresh shape for women’s suit jackets, a sort of inverted triangle with wide shoulders and a narrower body. (The silhouette looked even better when the jackets were double-breasted.) Miniskirts, which were ubiquitous a year ago, were replaced by longer versions, many of which fell below the knee — and some of which were tulle. And more than a few looks incorporated fringe, suggesting the dawn of a new era for urban cowboys.
