Tomorrow marks the first day of New York Fashion Week, and let’s face it, if you’re headed to the shows, you most likely want to present your most stylish self. The only caveat? February. Between winter storms, frigid temperatures, and grey skies, packing for NYFW can easily feel like a task of confounding proportions. Lucky for you, we’re here to help with a few cold weather style tips to make your NYFW outfits fab!
NYC in the middle of winter is no joke — slushy sidewalks, howling winds, and arctic-like temps make layering up your look a necessity. When it comes to choosing outerwear, take the one-two approach: top your sweater or dress with a patterned overcoat layered beneath a classic moto jacket. The graphic pattern of the Pattern Prowess Coat adds texture and warmth nestled beneath the Nine to Jive Jacket, which fends off icy winter wind. A knit turban, like the Where There’s a Chill Hat in Grey, is a unique head-topping alternative to the ubiquitous beanie.
Bright accessories are the perfect way to give a nod to the season ahead. Start with a big, bright bag in the color of the coming season: Pantone’s Dazzling Blue. The Architecture Student Bag is structured, stylish, and large enough to fit a day planner, like the Organize It You Will Planner, and any accoutrements you may shed once you step out of the cold. Protect your phone with a cute case, like the Me-Yowza! Case, and add a pair of studded fingerless gloves, like the Dashing Through the Show Glovettes, for easy access to Instagram. A cute, retro camera, like the Diana F+ Clone Camera, is an unexpected way to capture inspiring street style snaps.
Whether you’re headed to the shows, or simply looking to spruce up your look during these last few weeks of winter, a few pops of color and a unique take on layering can go a long way. We’re curious, what’s your strategy for making your cold-weather look unique?
