No matter what event you attend, one of the big questions you ask yourself beforehand is, “What should I wear?” And when you are attending New York Fashion Week, this is easily the biggest question you can ask yourself. The answer to this question can feel pretty overwhelming, but we are going to help you out. Check out our simple tips below to style yourself for fashion week.
While you may be geared up to watch shows from the biggest names in fashion, you do not need to be decked out in their wares. Fashion week isn’t about impressing people with the name on your bag; it is about the art of fashion. As such, think less about names and more about design, details, color, texture, and other aspects designers consider as they create.
Be True to Yourself
It can be tempting to try and put yourself out there by wearing something really crazy and artful—and if this suits your personality, go for it! But do not feel pressured to be as wild and crazy as the runway designs you are viewing. If you are uncomfortable, it will show. Be true to yourself instead.
Think About Others
Now in most circumstances, you should not base the way you dress on how it makes others feel, but when you are watching a show, you need to keep personal space in mind. While it might be fun to wear a wild hat or a jacket with crazy shoulders, doing so could prevent others from viewing the show comfortably. So if you are looking at statement pieces, consider them carefully.
Casual Works Too
It may seem like a fashion show is an event that requires some level of formal wear, but in general, it doesn’t. Street style is a driving force in fashion, and there is nothing wrong with wearing it to a show. However, it is a good idea to consider the type of clothing being featured before you decide that casual is best.
Be Proud of What You Choose
Ultimately, the best thing you can wear for any occasion is confidence. If you like what you are wearing and feel powerful in it, people will be able to tell. Whether that is something wild or an all-black power suit is up to you.
