WOAH! Tomorrow is September 1 and I leave for my third NYFW one week from today! My how time flies! Last year at this time I was overwhelmed with excitement as I was about to head to my first ever New York Fashion Week... a dream of mine since I was about 7 years old. Not only was I excited but I was consumed with stress of what to wear!!! What to wear, what to wear, holy crap! What the hell do I wear!? I swear to you, it's all I thought about for a month! I packed about 52 outfits too many and to my surprise, felt totally comfortable! Want to know why? Because you could literally wear ANYTHING to fashion week and feel like you fit in. I mean, you could wear thigh high mismatching socks, checkered shorts and a striped shirt with a camo jacket or just a paper bag and nobody would look twice.
Anyways! This year I'm not letting myself get stressed, just the excited part! I'm heading to New York with my favorite gals, Ashley, Caitlin and Olivia next week and I'm in the thick of outfit planning! I decided my best bet was to put my efforts into outfits I'll want to wear all season long and not just intense looks I will only wear during my 4 days in New York. Earlier this week, Olivia and I went into Trunk Club to get some help with styling looks to get inspiration for what we will wear this Fall and next week at NYFW. Follow along next week on Instagram as we head to NYFW and share all craziness with you!!! I hope this gives you some Fall outfit inspiration! Shop my exact looks + the looks for less below!
Edgy + Comfortable
A simple edgy look is one of my favorites for fall. You know I feel comfortable in all black! I love to add a pop over color with a plaid shirt tied around the waist which also comes in handy if you get chilly! Adding classic accessories with stud details gives your look an extra punch!
Stepping out of my comfort zone is something I've been trying to do a lot lately! I'm a huge fan of mixing prints. It creates a elevated look with a twist. Going for wide trousers and a silk top feels almost as comfortable as PJs! Add a heel and a jacket for a little bonus.
Slip Dress Nation
One trend I'm absolutely loving right now is the slip dress. It's simple, comfortable and chic. There are endless possibilities for how to wear it. I love the look of layering a simple tee underneath to dress it down a bit. I will also be wearing slip dresses with heels, a chunky cardigan or a leather jacket this Fall!
Neutrals are always a good idea. Putting together an outfit that's all the same color story is simple and super chic. I'm loving olive green and camel for Fall!
In black... again! I love a floral pattern with a combat boot to give your edgy look a little girly facelift. It's a fun juxtaposition and a sure way to create a cute outfit! I love the idea of floral dresses with a moto jacket and combat boot for Fall!
