My advice to those of you lucky enough to join part in the most epic week in the year's fashion industry is do not dress overly trendy. You don't want to look like your sense of fashion comes straight from a page in Elle, but rather is your own brain child hatched from a unique perspective on the wearable art we call fashion. I think it's always better to stand out in a fun and wacky way, while still maintaining your chic-ness. Have fun with a cool quirky necklace you found on the streets in Chinatown and pair it with a Celine coat. Honor the designers you love by wearing a piece or two by them and help give exposure to the lesser known (up-and-coming) designers you'd like to rep. While we'd all love to get decked out in fall attire, the weather simply won't permit this. In other words, it's way too damn hot in NY this week! Wear what you feel most stylish and comfortable in.
Here are some looks I put together to get you inspired.
