New York Fashion Week is in full swing and showgoers have already hit the ground running on the sartorial front. Though street style is usually associated with bold, statement-making ensembles, the fashion crowd opted for something much more monochromatic on the first day of the month-long marathon: head-to-toe brown or beige. (Perhaps Justin Bieber was really on to something when he launched Drew, which boasts a similar color scheme.)

At Paris Fashion Week Men's, khaki-colored outfits were also quite popular, as attendees upgraded the sand and camel tones with unique accessories and pops of bold color. On the other hand, New York's showgoers played with layering different textures and exaggerated silhouettes, from a quilted puffer coat or a buttery leather belted dress to a slouchy suit with fringe or a turtleneck sweater tucked into a long, slitted skirt. Who knew the super-neutral color palette can really make a fashion statement?
