Obviously, the most important thing about NYFW is the fashion after all. A lot goes into planning my wardrobe for the week, but it’s also a lot of fun to nail down the right looks for each of the days ahead. Apart from my wardrobe for the week, I pack a few essentials that I feel every NYFW attendee should bring on their trip.
Okay, so I know you’re used to seeing all bloggers photographed in the coolest shoes during fashion month, but it’s not always how we get around. When traveling from show to show, it’s crucial to have a comfortable pair of shoes to switch into to survive the week. Whether it’s flats or sneakers is entirely up to you, but make sure to have some comfortable shoes.
From sunglasses to jewelry to bold hair accessories, having standout pieces is essential for NYFW attendees. Right now, vibrant sunnies are very on-trend, and other hand statement earrings and jewels will never be out of style. Either way, if you want your look to get the recognition it deserves, stock up on some statement accessories.
An “It” Bag
Apart from completing a look, bags can really have their own moment during fashion month. I invest in transitional bags every year, but there are plenty of affordable statement bags to go around. Aim for one that stands out from the crowd, but still goes hand-in-hand with the rest of your NYFW wardrobe.
This brings me to my next point: the clothes. I never attend NYFW without pre-planned outfits and more than one option for the day. Not only does this save time once you’re already in town for the week, but if unexpected weather changes happen, you always have a backup plan. I take photos wearing each outfit so that I don’t forget what I originally planned and can easily choose the pieces when getting dressed.
