INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

WHAT EDITORS ARE WEARING TO FASHION MONTH

February 9, 2019

Fashion month is here, and the style set are descending on the streets of New York. Deciding what to wear on a busy day of shows is no easy feat — you’ve got to look stylish, stay comfortable and brave whatever weather sitch you find yourself in. But what's tricky for showgoers is great for us and our bank of cold-weather-outfit inspiration. Here, six editors break down their fashion-month style approach and, spoiler alert, it involves a lot of layering.

"For NYFW this season, I don't think we have much of a choice but to make it all about outerwear. I'll be wearing some fun statement coats, as well as a few simpler blazers and jackets layered together. I'll be styling them with leather separates, turtlenecks and mock-croc accessories, like this little black bag."

"Broadly speaking, the approach on my team is to be slightly more conscious of our sustainability drive than we have been in recent years. Obviously, we all love dressing up and selecting some amazing designer pieces to wear to the shows — who doesn't love a bit of peacocking? But we're aiming to be more mindful about re-using our favorite accessories and including vintage items. And the other thing I'm definitely going to be doing is layering! I've got a great long-sleeved white roll-neck that can go under anything. It's very ski-season chic."

"My London Fashion Week looks can appear haphazard to say the least. Among the inevitable sartorial dilemmas, there's one staple that will always make an appearance: a blazer. There are three reasons for this: 1. You can literally pair it with anything (it can dress up your jeans to contrast with a free-flowing '70s dress). 2. It makes me feel more ‘put together’ – even after long hours rushing around town / having five minutes to get ready in the morning. 3. Looking like Richard Gere in American Gigolo is no bad thing. Currently, I’m into this Mango number."

"While fashion week can really be as fun as it looks, it involves the busiest days of the working year for most of us involved. The last thing you want to be worrying about is a pair of pants that are too tight or heels that pinch at every step. This season, I've picked up a pair of pink denim jeans from ASOS that I'm looking forward to wearing with a skate tee, a mini bag and one of my favorite faux-fur coats. Having been going to the shows for the best part of the last five years, I've learned to do a mini ASOS haul in the week before to stock up on things like tights, hair clips and socks."

"With the weather forecast looking like things are set to remain miserable out there, I'm determined to invest in a bold piece of outerwear, like this multicolor checked number. I won't be the person wearing the latest spring dress and sandals (and nothing else). Instead, I'll be the one wrapped up in a cozy coat with layers, knee-high boots and a flat white to go! You can still nod to the new season with carefully chosen colors, cuts and finishes."

"For the February shows, you can pretty much guarantee temperamental weather, so I'll be thinking outerwear first when it comes to my outfits — good coats, knee-high boots and turtleneck sweaters to protect from the elements. Also, it sounds obvious, but comfort is key — if I'm wearing heels, I'll always have a spare pair of flats in my bag. Fashion week is not the time for blisters!"
