It is this time of the year again! New York Fashion Week is here again to make us dream about awesome garments and crazy outfits. We see Oscar de la Renta, Caroline Herrera, House of Harlow, The Row, Tommy Hilfiger and Tome to only list some of them. But Fashion Week is also down in the street, and if you're not hype enough to be invited to a show, just wait outside of where it takes place and you'll see the other side of Fashion Week: street style. Since several years now street style has taken a much more important place in the world of fashion, and sometimes it feels like it became even more important than the fashion show itself. On, L'Officiel and many specialized blog you can see everyday's best of street style, and this takes place before the pictures of the shows... There are books about it - The Sartorialist - , blogs - Garance Doré started being famous for her street styles pictures - and on Instagram it feels like we rather look at famous bloggers' looks than opening at Hugo Boss. Street style in my view became one of the most interesting thing about fashion weeks, because we are able to see how those designers' garments are finally wore on a day-to-day life basis. It is funny to see the difference between the catwalk where models wear too much make-up, shoes impossible to walk with and sometimes weird associations of clothes, and then to see bloggers, journalists, celebrities, wearing the same brand but in a more natural, easy and wearable way. 
     For several years now I've been following Aimee Song, the blogger of Song of Style, and more recently her sister, Dani Song. The way they dress is really casual, "Cali", effortless but sophisticated. And so here I would like to share with you some pictures of the Song Sisters' New York Fashion Week outfits, just to show you how much fashion is now about the way we appropriate ourselves the designers' garments. Happy Street Fashion Week!
