One of the most common questions people ask me about covering New York Fashion Week is what do I wear. After six seasons of attending the so-called "Super Bowl of style," the outfits I select for the week typically fall into at least one of the following categories: a.) it's stylish b.) it's comfortable (well, for the most part) c.) it's something I feel good in d.) it's something I don't often get the chance to wear.
Overall, pretty much anything goes at New York Fashion Week. I've seen about every color of hair, cat ears, men in gowns, women in tuxes, etc. New York Fashion Week style is about owning your personal style. It's a confident personality that pulls any ensemble together.
On Saturday, my first day attending the shows this season, I wanted an outfit that channeled the feeling of a night out on the town because I was going to several evening shows. I also had some interviews with designers and stylists, so a look that married professionalism with style was a must.
Black and gold sparkle stretch dress, H&M: This dress is comfortable, figure flattering and something I don't wear very often. As a result, it has a special factor that's appropriate for New York Fashion Week.
Gold ring necklace, Macy's; statement ring, Banana Republic; gold ring bracelet with rhinestone-studded angel wings, Victoria's Secret; gold dangle earrings, J.C. Penney: Bold gold accessories accentuated the gold glitter in the dress and kept the look polished and poised.
Anne Klein gold-studded, black suede pumps, Zappos.com: It's tough for me to find pumps that not only fit well but also are moderately comfortable. Despite the high heel, these shoes accomplish both and, once again, carried the gold hue from head to toe. (And when I did need to dash from show to show, I slipped into a pair of flats.)
