How do you prepare for New York Fashion Week? The biggest “do” for NYFW is have confidence in what you wear. No matter how out there you think your outfit is, there is always someone dressed more shockingly. The secret to looking fashionable is pulling it off with confidence. The biggest “don’t” for NYFW is not doing your research. All of the designers has such interesting backgrounds and if you attend a show after learning about the designer, you will understand their vision much better and take away more from the experience.
This season I am particularly looking forward to the Diane Von Furstenberg show. I always love her prints, and now that I am pregnant the wrap dress is a must! Go up a size in a print if you are unsure because if it’s too small it will pull and distort the print.
Forget ancient fashion rules. It’s okay to wear white to Fashion Week this February. In fact, this season head-to- toe white is on trend. However, if you are planning to take on this daring style advice, make sure that your white clothing is clean with no spots and wrinkle-free. If you don’t feel 100% comfortable in all white, opt for a champagne color.
Peplum is still popular this season. You can find it on skirts, tops, dresses and even high-waist pants. It gives a dramatic flare to a regular LBD (little black dress). If you’re looking to make a bold statement during #MBFW, you can add an extra flare by finding a brocade peplum dress. The fabric not only gives the dress a very luxurious look but the medium weight fabric allows for a voluminous, beautiful peplum.
Don’t limit yourself to grays and blacks during the winter months. Bold colors are a trend this season, which can add that pop of color to defeat the winter doldrums. If you are not ready to give up your winter neutrals, opt for brightly colored accessories.
