The first day of New York Fashion Week was hotter than hot. I mean as in temperature hot! (I know you thought amazing designs on the runway, there was that too, but the temperature was crazy hot!). So to keep cool, I paired a lightweight cotton tee with my new favorite go-to skirt for the fall season. This skirt is basic, yet not-so-basic. I feel like I can wear it when I don’t know what to wear; and to any event where I need to look professional! It is a great alternative to the classic black pencil skirt. When the weather cools down, I plan on pairing this skirt with sweaters and blouses.
This outfit was understated and utilitarian; perfect for running around New York to both onsite and off-site fashion shows! Day one was definitely my biggest, logistical nightmare, day during fashion week. I started the day with an off-site show, then quickly cabbed it back to Lincoln Center for an on-site show, then walked to an off-site show, then went back for an on-site show; rinse and repeat. Whew!
Thankfully, despite the hot and humid weather, I still felt put together in this outfit and cool enough to brave the busy day!
Stay tuned! I have a lot more spring/summer 2015 runway shows to bring you; as well as some Lincoln Center tent fun!
