When we think of New York Fashion Week, images of luxurious fabrics, brightly lit runways and celebrities around every corner almost immediately come to mind. It all seems so out of reach for the average gal, but our friends over at Darling Magazine are showing us how to get the look in an everyday, wearable context that fits our budgets, too! Enjoy a quick glimpse of the feature below, then head to Darling Magazine for more tips and tricks.
This year for me, less was more when it came to New York Fashion Week. In previous years, we’ve run all over town to every show at fashion week, and it is exhausting, and truthfully, it leaves my mind spinning. Our approach this year was to take on much less and really try to connect with what we were experiencing.
Below are three inspiring ideas from this year’s New York Fashion Week. The idea is to find something easy that the average woman can do to up her style game this year.
1. Mix and match your patterns.
We love this look from Kate Spade New York—it totally inspires us to mix and match our suiting for a playful menswear look.
2. Try turquoise.
We loved this bold eyeshadow choice from the Mara Hoffman presentation. It felt so fresh and ’70s-inspired in just the right way.
If you’re feeling even bolder, go for a turquoise suit to match.
3. Try a tassel!
Tassels showed up at both Kate Spade New York and Sarah Seven. We love the bit of polish they add to each outfit. It reminded me to try adding a tassel to a bag I already own with one of these.
