Fashion Week 101: 5 things you must have in your suitcase

Fashion Week 101: 5 things you must have in your suitcase

 

Going to New York Fashion week is a dream come true. But, like all things, there are challenges – the most obvious being WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR?

As I mentioned in our Your Coffee Break article, I am a weather wimp. I am also wary of uncomfortable footwear. So, being a thin skinned Californian going to a major fashion event presents some problem. Luckily, I am also very stubborn and have, what I feel, is a very clear cut list of “likes and dislikes”.

#1 COMFORTABLE SHOES

Sneakers are the obvious choice. But I am also bringing these Gravatti lace ups with lug soles and my all around awesome Aquatalia winter boots.

#2 LAYERS

I am obsessed with sweaters paired with leggings of all types.

#3 BOXY TOPS

I tend to wrinkle and end up ‘undone’ most of the time. Plus, having a bigger chest makes fitted a challenge. Enter great brands like Co and Shi to save the day.

#4 SPRING UP DREARY WINTER

These Chloe culottes pair with boots and a fun cropped jacket to let me pretend to have a spring moment.

#5 COORDINATE COLORS

Black and white are the obvious choices…. And then I can add color sparingly.

See you in New York!
