One of our favorite parts of Fashion Week is the epic street style. Bloggers, fashionistas, editors, and style enthusiasts alike all come out dressed to the nines in hopes to impress their peers, and secretly to get snapped by a fashion photog.

Day 1 of NY Fashion Week, Fall/Winter 2013 Collections, lived up to our street style expectations. While we saw lots of leather, black and white, and high slits on the runways, we saw tons of laid-back yet très chic looks outside Lincoln Center.

Check out our gallery of our 12 best dressed fashionistas attending the shows on Day 1 of New York Fashion Week.
