2018 New York Fashion Week has kicked off. But regardless of what's on the runway—street style or a softer chic look—both will always be in fashion. Teyana Taylor loves urban wear. She is typically spotted in jeans and a pair of bamboo earrings, but she can throw on a pair of pumps to elevate the look. Lupita Nyong'o's look is classic, timeless and she always wows on the red carpet with a chic look. So, which style is your favorite?

Who What Wear gave us a 10-step guide on how to rock streetwear. They say shades are key, because they hide tired eyes and still add a "look at me" factor. Who What Wear writer Evelyn Crowley says accessories are crucial in order to pull off a bomb street look.

"Equal parts punk and glam, ear cuffs were a ubiquitous sight during fall fashion week. Whether they’ll make a repeat performance for spring remains to be seen. In the meantime, however, we say, cuff ‘em."

R&B singer Teyana Taylor is known for her street style. The Harlem native effortlessly pulls off any look, but it's safe to say street style is her signature look. Taylor loves a pair of sneakers or Timberland Boots and an oversized shirt.

The Muse says in order to achieve a chic look one should buy timeless clothing. A leather jacket and simple black dress will never go out of style and are must-haves. Hannah Baker of The Muse says don't be afraid to have fun with it.

If you live in a city where H&M is readily available to you, you know how hard this rule can be. You go in to buy “just one t-shirt”—and the next thing you know, you’ve purchased a pile of clothes that will withstand exactly one season’s worth of trends. (I know, “But they were having a huge sale!”)As fun as impulse buying can be, you could save that money you spent on eight neon statement necklaces (that everyone and their mom will be wearing) and put it towards a classic leather jacket or black sheath dress. And to get your neon necklace fix? Find a used necklace at a thrift store (or grab one of yours that you don’t wear anymore), spray paint it neon, and voilà: a cheap statement piece that is uniquely yours (and probably better quality). Geneva has amazing DIY projects on her blog that always look flawlessly ripped from the runway and not at all kitschy.

Lupita Nyong'o is chic at all times. She is forever on the red carpet, which probably contributes to her chic style, but she still aces the look because her clothes are timeless. Nyong'o typically serves body in a form-fitting piece and heels with minimal accessories.
