It’s New York Fashion Week time again. Things start with a packed schedule that includes shows from some of New York’s most beloved designers like Altuzarra, Brandon Maxwell, Gabriela Hearst, Khaite, and Sergio Hudson, among others.
As editors and shoppers discover the fall-winter collections, dressing in outfits that prioritize warmth, comfort and style is a must. Here is what vanity loungewhich publishers will wear as they go through all the offerings for a new season.
Nicole Chapoteau, Fashion Director
“For my New York Fashion Week look, I brought together all my favorite things. Kaze masks are the best and I love how they match all my looks. The new Miu Miu x New Balance sneakers are perfect for running from runway to runway while remaining chic. The silhouette of these Fear Of God pants pairs perfectly with flats and heels when I need to transition from day to night. And to top it off, the perfect weather coat, which is basically all people see. This Moose Knuckles coat is warm and fashion-forward. Here ! And now I’m ready for the shows.
Daisy Shaw-Ellis, Props Manager
“I’m going with simplicity this fashion week. An elegant and soft cashmere dress with slightly baggy Khaite boots that are comfortable enough to wear day after day. This thick sheepskin coat is a great layer for cold temperatures, but easy to take off when there’s the inevitable moment of overheating inside. Speaking of which, I’m going to be carrying these Kaze KN95 masks in every color of the rainbow as my go-to accessory.
Laura Regensdorf, Beauty Director
“I’m one to bypass the fray of photographers, so I appreciate beautiful pieces that get the job done. These Proenza Schouler ankle boots are practically welded to my feet, whether with a ruffled Batsheva dress or wool sailor pants. For a change of pace from my usual 70s denim, these jeans have an airy fit, with room to tuck into long johns if need be. I recently lost my favorite wool coat (a minor tragedy), but I have my eye on this investment piece from Max Mara – the perfect tobacco color that comes as a new neutral. And since my laptop and charger are the most essential accessories of the week, this snow-white Ance Studios tote keeps everything under control.
Miles Pope, Menswear Editor
“The fashion season from February to March turns out to be a bit difficult due to the cold weather conditions. I’m a person who likes to stay warm and keep her look chic and simple – naturally, I’m leaning towards black! Recently, I’ve been loving baggy pants, a long oversized coat, and a chunky boot. I always complete my look with an Evolvetogether double mask… in black, of course!
Kia D. Goosby, Market Writer
“Like many of my colleagues, this time of year for show season is always a beast because of the cold temperatures. And my main motto in life is to keep it really cozy, comfy and chic. I love white creams and buttery yellows for a while, so I’ve been going for a neutral, slightly monochromatic look, with my favorite Kaze masks to match.
Morgan Evans, Trade Editor
“The challenge for NYFW in February is to try to stay chic in cold weather. Comfortable and warm fashion is the goal, which can easily be achieved with a good coat. I love this Stand Studio quilted faux leather coat which is an understated piece. To add some color, I’ll be wearing this Proenza Schouler turtleneck tie-dye maxi dress. I love the dress for its eye-catching pattern but also for its easy and comfortable stretch jersey material. Perfect for the active nature Finally, adding a little more texture to the look, you can’t go wrong with an embossed style boot.These croc-effect leather Totême boots add a stylish finish to any ensemble. , and the heel is perfect for long days on the runway.
Jessica Neises, Associate Fashion Editor
“It’s very cold in New York, so I’m preparing for fashion week this season. I love the look of this Stand Studio quilted coat with a long length that will double as a full windbreaker and keep me toasty warm. I’m a big fan of accessories, so I’ll also style my outfits with on-trend pieces like this Clyde bucket hat, which is made of faux fur. Finally, my spin on a snow boot, my Loewe platform loafers that have the illusion of a leather sock.
Samantha Gasmer, Associate Fashion Editor
“Here we go again! I always feel like fashion week is sneaking up on us, so I’ll stick to easy uniforms. I’ve been living in my Bottega tire boots ever since I bought them, and the marathon that is fashion week will be no different. They go with everything, really are the most comfortable and add a level of “cool” that one always needs. A trendy coat and a black turtleneck are my Nothing beats this classic Wolford bodysuit and I must admit I love The defeat the atmosphere of this Proenza coat. Of course, I can’t leave the house without my favorite hand sanitizer! I might even have a bottle in each coat pocket just to make sure I never go without.
Kayla Holiday, Editorial Assistant
“Denim is on my mind this season. A good pair of jeans is always my go-to staple when I’m feeling casual, but casual doesn’t mean boring. The easiest way to make denim more interesting is to add more denim! Denim on denim is both futuristic and nostalgic, and I love finding ways to reinvent the classic look. This fashion week I’ll be wearing my Triarchy cropped denim jacket tucked into a pair of casual high waisted Triarchy ripped jeans – the perfect denim duo. I like to tuck my jeans into a pair of ankle boots for an effortlessly cool look and with this outfit I opted for a pair of white wedge ankle boots. A coat is essential this time of year and a nude trench coat with unexpected texture seems like the perfect complement to my Canadian tuxedo. Finally, a pair of pearl drop earrings adds a bit of elegance.
