My NYFW A/W 18 Style Diary
NYFW is always a dream. There's nothing like meeting people who love fashion equally as much as you. This season was very bitter sweet between the blistering cold and dreary rain, nothing could stop the high energy that seems to encompass every show goer. For every outfit during fashion week I found some way to incorporate color rather it be through the outfit itself or accessories.
Keep scrolling to read about my fashion week looks.
Day one of fashion week is usually the most exciting for me. It sets the tone for the rest of the week ahead and I believe should always be one of your best looks. I like to describe this look as racer chic. The checkered sweater from Boohoo paired with my new favorite vinyl flare pants (also from Boohoo) were the ultimate ode to Nas car drivers everywhere. I paired it with an extremely over-sized blue puffer coat, sleek gold boots because having one color contrast is never enough. I finished the look with a sporty themed bag from Asos. Day one was like no other from attending the shows at Industria, racing to Panel discussions at Samsung and stopping for a moment to capture street snaps. It was among one of the best days. And I even met a new fashion blogger buddy Emily who has great style and also helped capture these street snaps. Check her out here!
On day two of fashion week I attended the Chromat after party. It was surely a party I wouldn't miss for anything as last seasons party was just as amazing. I believe I might be starting a fashion week tradition here. We'll call it "Never ever miss a Chromat Party"! lol! For this look I went monoCHROMATIC (haha, get it?) and wore a powdered pink jumpsuit which I thrifted when living in Houston. This look was easy, effortless, comfortable and chic!
So this look is an official unofficial fashion week look. I took a break in my fashion week schedule to celebrate a close friend birthday. I still wanted to catch the essence of fashion week so I wore a bright yellow mock neck sweater dress from Asos with frayed denim jeans and finished the look with my go-to white booties from Amazon. (Yep, that's right my favorite shoes are from Amazon)
On day four of fashion week I decided to rock my DKNY military inspired trench coat along with my custom made fit and flare pants designed by ASH the Designer. The fit was amazing and I received tons of compliments on them. It was the perfect outfit for the busy hustle of fashion week. Because the look was on the more neutral side I decided to add a pop of color with a fire engine red bag for more flare!
On the final day of fashion week I attended the Rebecca Minkoff X Bumble Bizz panel discussion at the Rebecca Minkoff store in Soho and Bettina Werner Salt Queen gallery opening. What better way to make a style statement among so many other fashionistas then by wearing pops of color all over. Stripes are perhaps my go-to outfit combo over and over agin. It works for all occasions and this day was no exception. I went for a pink and blue striped blouse that had all the old school vibes. The shoulder pads inside gave the blouse a boxy silhouette which I love. I decided to pair it with an old favorite of mine, these embellished denim pants which you may remember from last NYFW (check that post out here). I then completed the look with my yellow bucket bag for an additional pop of color.
So there we have it another fashion week here and gone. I'm super excited to do more shows next season and create another round of fashion week looks. If you have any suggestions please feel free to comment below!
