The best plus-size street style looks at New York Fashion Week

We are in the midst of New York Fashion Week, and thanks to this year’s successful theCURVYcon we are seeing a tremendous amount of diversity in the street style surrounding it.

I have been attending NYFW since 2011 and have seen a significant shift in the amount of fellow plus-size women attending shows, and it’s even more exciting that they are getting a place in the spotlight and being featured in street style articles. It is a moment they likely won’t forget — I broke down in tears when I received my first street style award as a curvy girl in People StyleWatch magazine, alongside straight-size stars like Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo. This was a rare instance, but I am beyond thrilled that curvy girls are finally getting their well-deserved place in the fashion scene.

The new sense of inclusivity that theCURVYcon is helping bring to New York Fashion Week is so needed, and the industry is taking notice. We can have style at any size.

Click through to see my favorite plus-size street style looks for this monumental event.
