9 Things You Need to Be Seen Wearing at NZFW

Teva sandals, an A-line skirt and the new Apple Watch are just some of the items that will distinguish those with up-to-the minute style


The hype around this shoe defies belief, but if you managed to get your hands on a pair this past weekend, we and everyone else who missed out worship you. Kanye x Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 black sneaker, $280, from Loaded and Area 51 Wellington.

These sandals might have had a bad rap in the past, but showing that you are early adopter of them now as they’re on the rise deserves extra fashion brownie points. Teva leather sandals $159.90.

A slick of red lipstick will have you standing out from your counterparts and is being lorded as the only colour to be wearing right now. M.A.C Lady Danger lipstick $40.

If there is one garment we want more than anything right now, it is anything leatherette from Kate Sylvester’s new collection. Kate Sylvester leatherette blouse $375.

The classic and flattering A-line skirt works for all body types and is hands down the skirt of the season. AC x AG skirt, $445, from Fabric.

Forget wearing jewellery on your wrists: those in the know are flaunting the highly anticipated Apple Watch, which launched in New Zealand last month. Apple Watch with stainless steel strap and classic buckle $1249.

You can’t beat a good vintage T-shirt and we are particularly into this new and remodelled one from Stolen Girlfriends Club, inspired by the artwork found on the “nasty acrylic mink blankets you find at the markets”. Stolen Girlfriends Club T-shirt $129.

This versatile little piece of fabric has become the must-have accessory among the street style set — we’ve seen them tied around the neck, wrist or handbags on all our favourite street style stars. Bandanna, $2, from LookSharp.

Straight out of the 90s, washed out vintage looking mom jeans are the style all the cool kids are wearing. Topshop jeans $95.
