There are just a few weekends each year when both the weather and seasonal trends widen the spectrum of getting dressed each morning.

Tights are optional, hats are everywhere, and boots are out of storage. While color lingers on from summer, those on the street have begun switching to nubby fall textures or winter’s darker tendencies. To chronicle that variety, the Cut sent photographer Bek Andersen to capture the current style proclivities of New Yorkers on their off days. Click ahead for our latest edition of Pattern Recognition.
