I was reading this great Refinery 29 article that gave some pointers from the Fashion big shots about weather appropriate for dressing for New York Fashion Week.
The biggest overall theme was unless you’re getting carted around in a private town car, wear something warm and most importantly shoes you can run, walk, and walk all over town in. Winter is not the easiest season to dress fashionably, but here are a few pointers and also what I’d love to wear.
Name: Jenna Kang, Fashion Market Editor @ Lucky Magazine
TIP: Invest in an interesting accessory instead of sky high heels to spice of your winter wardrobe.
What She Wore: MiH chambray shirt, Alexa Chung for Madewell sweater, Paige jeans, J. Crew coat, Juicy Coutoure mittens, Kate Spate bag, and Celine boots
Name: Jane Keltner De Valle, Fashion News Director, Teen Vogue
TIP: Beyond comfy and versatile boots she recommends a nice big scarf that can be wrapped around you face and head when caught in any unexpected weather.
What She Wore: Gryphon New York Trench, Lutz & Patmos chunky cashmere scarf, Alexa Chung for Madewell skirt, Proenza Schouler booties with Falke socks, MaxMara bag, and Lanvin sunglasses
Name: Connie Wang, Global Editor, Refinery 29
TIP: Throw the rules out the window and put on whatever you haven’t had the balls to wear during the season. Match things as you see fit. She also does something fun with her hair beforehand to liven things up.
What She Wore: MikkatMarket shirt, Pleasure Doing Business skirt, curtain tie worn as belt, Wilfred Coat, Creative Recreation heels, and a scarf from Tibet that I she suspects is supposed to be a throw
Name: Rajni Lucienne Jacques, Fashion Features Editor, Nylon Magazine
TIP: The cold weather doesn’t mean you can’t show a little skin. Try a sheer skirt or shirt for that winter sex appeal.
What She Wore: American Apparel skirt, Vintage top, Burberry Boots, J+ Uniqlo Jacket
