48 of the Coolest Kids in New York

This fall, I set out to photograph some of the most stylish kids in the city for The New York Times for Kids. I regularly shoot street style photos outside fashion shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris, seeking out the best-dressed people who are there to admire and critique designers. This time I looked for cool kids wherever I could find them, in neighborhoods all over the city. No matter my subjects’ age, one thing remains the same: Some people just have style.

It doesn’t necessarily mean that an outfit cost a lot of money. Even though many kids said that their style was inspired by adults and celebrities with a lot more to spend on clothes, they found creative ways to dress that looked just as good. Their fashion inspiration included bands and butterflies, rappers and video games. I also noticed some definite trends on the streets over the last two months: camouflage, chunky white sneakers, animal prints, vintage, mixed prints, graphic black and white, denim, sequin details, digital-print backpacks and, of course, athleisure. Some kids were really into collecting sneakers. Others dyed their hair every color of the rainbow. All used clothes to express themselves.
