If you’re attending the shows during New York Fashion Week, you must have a strategy for outfits. Unless you’re being dressed by the designer that you intend on seeing, you should have you a look (or looks) for each day planned in advance. I like to start out strong in my most statement-making attire (a video featuring my top three looks for this is coming soon) and then I dial it down to comfortable-yet-chic towards the end of the fashion-packed marathon week.
For me, this means a relaxed-fit pair of denim worn with a low heel and a light top layer that’ll give good movement while whisking around the city. To start, I selected a pair of cropped, boyfriend jeans by French Connection. I’m loving two-tone denim right now because it gives the denim edge without being distressed (see the two-tone denim skirt that I just recently styled).
A longline trench or lightweight duster is not just useful during the cooler mornings, but can also lengthen your body when worn with tapered denim and heels. This particular ivory, satin duster added an extra dash of texture and chicness, while still keeping the look easy, breezy.
I’ve already talked about my love for kitten heels (especially these Diors) and was pleased to see so many other show-goers adorning their tired feet with these heels of a practical height during NYFW. I was also pretty happy when I found the blow pair of designer dupes for you. They come in both black and red and are priced below $100USD.
Below, you can view a few more captures of the casual look that I wore on Sunday, September 10th during New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018.
