NYFW: Jewels & Fur

The February shows at New York Fashion Week always pose a challenging wardrobe conundrum – how does one remain stylish during one of the coldest weeks of the year? This Fall/Winter 2015 show season was particularly brutal, playing witness to some of New York’s lowest temperatures in the last decade. Layering went beyond an aesthetic choice and became essential to survive the chill.

The Stone Set’s intrepid street style photographer Stefania Yarhi of Textstyles was on hand this week to document how the world’s most stylish women brave the elements, and to snap what really counts: the jewelry. From day one, we noticed an immediate trend: fur, and lots of it, accented by jewelry added to assert personality.


When donning one’s warmest duds, it’s easy to feel swallowed up by your outfit. A statement making fur plus a dash of jewelry is the perfect antidote to cold weather wardrobe blues. When we’re all covered up head to toe, the peek of an earring, cuff, or elegant stack of rings can speak volumes about one’s personal style, and is sure to make you stand out from the crowd. – Jenna Fain for The Stone Set


Daria Shapovalova, creative director of Kiev Fashion Days, matched her leopard coat with two statement pieces: a vintage horoscope pendant and Balenciaga earrings which instantly caught our eye.


Shiona Turini combined neutrals and fur with layered on gold rings and bracelets and a reflective pair of shades.


Seoul-based TV personality and model Irene Kim balanced a head-turning hot pink coat with her more classic daily jewelry essentials, including a Cartier watch and Giles & Brother cuff.
