For some the passing of Labor Day marks the end of summer, while for others it’s the start of the fall fashion season, which kicks off in Manhattan and the outer boroughs with New York Fashion Week (NYFW).
Gone are the days of tents in Bryant Park and Lincoln Center; these days, most shows are held at TriBeCa’s Spring Studios and the West Village’s Industria. However, plenty of designers show outside these locales, so if you’re planning on catching catwalk action, you’ll be hailing cabs, snagging an Uber or taking advantage of New York’s public transit system.
Show-hopping isn’t always glamorous, which is problematic when you want to arrive at each venue looking super stylish. But don’t worry, Culture Trip, in partnership with YOOX, has come up with five chic, comfortable and versatile wardrobe staples that will see you through New York Fashion Week as you move from day to evening.
George J Love fanny pack ($89/ £69)
Belt bags are still on trend, and this metallic number adds just the right amount of sparkle.
See by Chloé ballet flats ($250/£195)
Chic ballet flats help you travel comfortably from one venue to another. These are small enough to fit in a purse, because the last thing you want to do is arrive at a show with a duffel bag.
Free People peony jacket ($128/£100)
A kimono-style jacket is an updated take on the classic fall blazer.
Jolie by Edward Spiers jumpsuit ($139/£108)
This body-conscious black jumpsuit requires little fuss and creates a flattering silhouette.
.AMEN. scarf ($106/£83)
Tie your look together with a pop of color in the way of a neon scarf that works for day or night.
