Hope you had a wondeful long weekend! So, so sad it’s over….
So as you may or may not know, New York Fashion Week kicks off today…
…and all the fashion glitteratti–from editors, to retailers, to designers–will descend upon Bryant Park to see the Spring 2008 collections of designers like Nicole Miller, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Tracy Reese. It’s a very exciting time!
I’ve gotten invites to a few hot shows…but the issue is: What to Wear?
In a room full of fabulous people, it’s hard to figure out what to rock so that you look like you fit in, yet have a bit of style. Who better to look to than celebs for a ‘Fashion Week’ look? Check it:
Tracee Ellis Ross…
…looks like a consummate magazine editor in a high waisted skirt, printed silk blouse, sky high yet somewhat conservative peep toes, and bangles. An editor would probably wear a large tote to carry a notebook, pens, etc, instead of a clutch, but the look is there.
If you’re more of a designer type, you can keep it super casual like Eva in a t and jeans….
…but don’t forget cute bold accessories and a fly hair do to add a bit of flair.
Solid dresses in eye catching colors are a safe bet…
And if all else fails…
…a dress in black or a dark color will help you fit in seamessly.
Oh, almost forgot! If you’re sitting front row…
…don’t forget your shades!
