Fashion week in New York is one of those things that always sneaks up on you. One minute you're talking about how far away it is, and the next moment you're in the throes of it all and every year I ask myself the same question: what the hell do I wear? My three must-haves for a fashion week outfit are classic accessories (like a black leather bag and sunglasses) a statement outfit piece (like this suede midi dress), and a pair of comfortable shoes. It is so tempting to wear sky-high heels, but at the end of the day I find I'm always better off in sneakers or flats. Other survival tools (recommended, not required): a cell phone charger, deodorant, gum and a good sense of direction since the shows are scattered across the city.
