Day 2: NYFW Outfit & Show Recaps
With this being my look to the first show, I wanted to make sure that I would be comfortable, but also look street style-esque. I decided to belt a super oversized blouse that I had from Aritzia with my Gucci belt. This gave me an actual waist and looked great with fitted leather pants (faux)! I love the poof at the sleeves because it hints at spring style, but the coat and boots keep me grounded in the winter (haha). I know that NYFW is usually a time where people go crazy with their outfits, but I wanted to get a feel this season before getting crazy with my look. I stayed true to my modern and minimal aesthetic. Shop my look below!
The Show: Lan Yu
This show was full of great textures and flowing materials. I loved a lot of the pieces that had ruffles that moved with the model as they walked! Some other pieces that stood out to me were the gowns and dresses. The long pink dress in the slideshow next to this was done immaculately! It looks as if she is walking with a herd of little flowers surrounding her. It was so gorgeous to see in person!
This designer wasn't afraid to throw in a few ops of color. I say dusty pinks and moss greens scattered throughout the collection, which I thought brought a good balance to the collection as a whole. The variances is length paired with the femininity of the collection are what made this collection cohesive.
Overall, I really enjoyed this show and was happy to kick off my fashion week with it despite missing my entire first day of shows due to weather!
*All photos of collection were taken by me on my iPhone.
I found this star biker jacket on mango and knew I had to wear it for a show! I stayed cozy and on trend with the extra long sleeves sticking out of my jacket. I'm obsessed with the layered look and this outfit is an obvious representation of that!
I always like to make sure that if I'm wearing a lot of neutrals, I put an emphasis on the little details. You can see this in the stars, lace up sides, pleat textured pants and studded bag. Shop the look below!
This was easily the most raunchy show I went to! Very cool and tech forward collection. The designers meet math with design with gives every piece a structural purpose. I loved how they had chains coming out of the models' mouths. Even though it was for effect, it helped give a personality to this collection. This brand focuses mainly on undergarments and swimwear, so I thought that the collection reflected that very well. I love seeing interesting collections and Chromat even made an entrance with dancers and singers! Very entertaining and cool collection overall.
Club Monaco S/s17
Club Monaco was actually a presentation rather than a show. It was more intimate in a sense that you could walk from look to look at your own pace, take in every piece of the collection, all wile sipping champagne and eating an hors d'ouevre. The collection was full of florals and ruffles. These are two of my favorite trends that I will definitely be sporting this coming spring! The presentation took place at their 5th Ave location, so the store was grand and looked like a secret garden. There were trees, flowers and vines everywhere. We even got to make our own bouquets of flowers as an exiting gift, Overall, this presentation was flawless!
My Favorite look from Each Show
P.S. Celeb Sitings!
I was so excited to accidentally run into these people! I got to meet two of my idols, Caroline Vreeland and Shea Marie. Both are superstars and I was ecstatic to get a photo with them. Additionally, at Club Monaco, I was able to snag a photo with both Jemima Kirk of HBO show Girls and Grace Coddington, the former creative director at Vogue! Katie Holmes and Drew Barrymore also made appearances, so you can imagine that I was gasping for air at this point. #Blessed
