ny fashion week essentials

fashion week essentials

1. Editor’s blouse: Channel Carine, our favorite front row femme fatale, in a blouse that means all business, and by all business I mean all fashion. Look for sophisticated sexy details like lace that’s equal parts lady and vixen.

2. Fierce jewels: Jewelry is strong and architectural for Fall. Stow bohemian stacked bracelets and choose a bold Anndra Neen cuff or Art Deco earrings from Eddie Borgo.

3. Print set: The print of the season, literally. Fashion week is the best time to sport a full look, as we know matching is de rigueur again. Make maximum impact with minimal effort and get set!

4. Statement coat: When it comes to coats this season: go big or go home! By big, I mean big statement. Color, print, and volume (cocoon shoulders are a must)– your coat is your car in New York (Kirna once said) so invest and go bold!

5. Top handle satchel: Get your hands on the new bag shape- the top handle satchel. Alexander Wang‘s embossed croc version is a fierce choice, and with enough room for all your notes from the show, it’s actually practical.

Best of Sale

A special dress: It’s occasion season. Graduations, weddings, parties, parties, parties. Ugh. One can become overwhelmed, unless you have that one special dress that goes everywhere. A multi-tasker, she has to be special enough to please co-workers, in-laws, boyfriends, even ex-boyfriends. No one has to know you got her on sale.

Whimsical necklace: Alber Elbaz dreams up the most whimsical fairy tale pieces for Lanvin. Investing in exaggerated fashion jewelry is a great way to add a playful element to any pretty dress, as well as kick up your casual summer basics.

A Pierre Hardy bag: I love how Pierre Hardy bags are still flying under the It-bag radar. The messenger strap makes it user friendly, a plus when it’s blazing hot and you don’t want to be fussing with anything. But mostly I’m just a sucker for cobalt blue ostrich leather.

Evening Oxfords: Introducing the Evening Oxford. I know, bear with me though. There’s something so modern and surprisingly sexy about a cut out flat as opposed to heels for summer nights. They lend a cheeky schoolgirl appeal to any skirt or sundress.

Leather boxers: Leather is so unexpected and chic when worn in warmer months. With shorts just make sure they’re breezy– the stick factor! The length should be less Daisy Duke than urban appropriate. Pair with an airy top for contrast… and ventilation.

Frankenstein tee: I love this t-shirt! You’d think a giant Frankenstein graphic wouldn’t work, and yet in Christopher Kane‘s hands…monster magic. The genius of a fashion tee is this is your one extreme style statement, you’re allowed to tone it down everywhere else.
