What to Wear to New York Fashion Week

With New York Fashion Week right around the corner, chances are you’ve been thinking about what to wear to all the fashionable happenings you’ll be attending. A serial over-packer myself, I’ve found that planning ensembles around one common object helps to keep your bag light while maintaining maximum outfit impact.

Today I’m sharing three looks, all styled around a favorite ModCloth piece of mine: the ultra-versatile Roam on the Range Boot.

When it comes to a daylong conference, they key to achieving comfort and style lies with bold details and standout staples. Try pairing contrasting colors — such as red and blue — with a neutral such as black. Eye-catching details like a unique collar and an embellished purse nix the need for additional accessories, ensuring you won’t be weighed down as you address the keynote speaker. Lastly, don’t forget a cute notebook to jot down important details!

In this outfit: You Deserve a Hand Top, Grand Turi Skirt, Tights for Every Occasion in Black, Word Traveler Journal, Nuts and Colts Bag, Roam on the Range Boot.

For a day full of fashion shows, where you’ll be skipping from venue to venue, layer up with an stare-worthy jacket to keep you warm while you’re outdoors, and a breezy tank to keep you cool while you watch the runway. Studded denim offers a unique take on a current trend, while nature-inspired earrings and a vibrant bag add some playfulness to an otherwise seriously chic outfit.

In this outfit: Roam on the Range Boot, Back for Noir Top, Rock Study Jeans, Studio Apartment Shoulder Bag, Feathers of Fancy Earrings, Urbanite and Day Coat.

Whether you’re going out on the town for Fashion’s Night Out or sipping champagne at an exclusive after-party, an evening soiree offers the perfect opportunity to break out the sequins. Sweet accessories — like a bright pink purse, and scalloped-detail jacket add sophistication to a party dress, while moto-inspired booties keep the whole look from feeling too sweet.

In this outfit: Salute to Splendid Coat, Taupe and Dream Dress, Small Sips Bracelet, Sweet as Bubblegum Bag, Roam on the Range Boot.

Will you be making the trek to NYFW? Let us know! We’ll be there all week, snapping street style and covering shows, and would love to see you!
