New York Fashion Week Outfits FW19: What I Wore

February 21, 2019

When it comes to preparing for New York Fashion Week, I can only describe it as a huge juggling act that’s part of attending a full-blown circus; theatrical, enamoring, magical and at times, gripping with heart palpitations at times you least expect or even at times you don’t want them to. My decision to attend New York Fashion Week was purely very last minute this season. Just 2 weeks before, I had expected to finalize a book to Europe, and that had all been pushed out. Alas, I found myself scrambling to pull a few outfits together, send emails and check all the invitations and change RSVP’s to Heck Yes, or actually, more appropriately, just Yes.

Having done Fashion Weeks for many years, I was lucky to know what to expect, but timing doesn’t always work well in my favour. I always feel like I’m scrambling to get to a show on time. The outfits I pulled together below are inspired by a few trends and pieces I have been loving. I wanted to wear more Spring/Summer trends, but the temperature dropped drastically which changed the direction of how I wanted to layer and dress.

Day 1: Marigold Yellow, Fringe, Hard Case Bag with Clasp, Barrettes

I wasn’t sure how long I’d stay for Fashion Week this season, so I went with multiple trends all at once: Yellow, Fringe, Bag with Clasp and Hair Barrettes. A good way to incorporate trends is to wear them in classic pieces and cuts that flatter you. I always love a good blazer and I don’t actually own a lot of yellow in my closet, so I went with this.

Day 2: Monochromatic & Feathers

Having lived in hot climates for the past 3 years, I yearned to wear a lot of black again. There are plenty of color trends happening at this time but bringing black back in (especially leather) has also been big.

I have been loving more Italian and French labels, so I went with silk Maison Margiela trousers, and my Dior Saddle Bag. I wore a black and white checkered faux fur coat over top, my Prada crystal heel shoes slicked back my hair into a ponytail to show off those large statement earrings.

Day 3: Statement Shoes

It warmed up significantly on Day 3 of Fashion Week. For those of you who watched my Instagram Stories, you’ll remember I mentioned that the inside of the shows gets incredibly warm. I decided not to wear a coat at all. Honestly, I might have been the only one not wearing one for fashion week this season at the shows, but it was an incredible decision because I was so comfortable outside and still too warm inside. So many people near me were sweating profusely. The things we do for fashion, am I right?
The outfit consisted of an asymmetrical top, plaid skirt and flaming heels  (which I had actually owned for a few months, but were stored in a box during my move closer to New York City and hadn’t seen the light of day since purchasing them(. Such a shame, isn’t it?
I later went home to change for an event and wore my monogram Gucci stockings and a lighter coat.

Mixing and matching with classic pieces and silhouettes you love are my favourite ways to do so. There were a few trends I’m incredibly excited to wear but didn’t get to during New York Fashion Week because of the snow storm, but cannot wait to once weather permits. Let me know which is your favourite look above and which Spring/Summer trend you’re looking forward to the most below!

    OMG your not kidding. It surly is a juggling act. I still have not posted my looks. First I like to get all the runway shots up my photographer took and then I get my vlog up though there is a teaser in that for what I am wearing. But whew it is a lot, at one point I had my DSLR, my G7X and my phone in lap trying to shoot a bit of all three it was nuts.

    You always look fabulous as you did the day I shot you in Paris and when I ran in to you here in NY. That pink coat was all that. And I the third look here is my favorite. The lace socks and flaming heels oh la la! And yes it can HOT. My over-sized coat did get in the way a bit and may have annoyed a fashionista or two.
