What better to wear with an all black ensemble than a bright red classic peacoat? I think that an all black look, head to toe, is uber chic and gives off that edgy, yet still feminine vibe. This slightly off the shoulder sweater is fuzzy and warm, perfect for cold winter days, like this one at New York Fashion Week in February. Over-the-knee boots paired with a mini-skirt, not only take this look to the next level trend wise, but keep your legs nice and toasty. This classic red peacoat is a closet staple, which I have owned for 10 years! This style is classic and I believe that everyone should own at least one. I have several colors which I have acquired over the years and sometimes they take an outfit from okay to over-the-top just like that. ^
Let’s talk more about NYFW… the main venue switched this year from Skylight Clarkson Square to Spring Studios in Tribeca. Here, you will find street photographers lined up for days shooting some of the most trendy, unique, and outrageous styles. Looking for outfit inspiration? No need for invitations to exclusive runway shows (although I would have died to attend the Zimmerman show). You will find real people, wearing real outfits all around Tribeca. Everything from top designers (see global influencers like Caroline Daur and Aimee Song) to everyday fashion lovers like you and I… Their styles are real and speak to their individuality. And do not be shocked to see a Zimmerman floral top paired with vintage distressed Levi’s found a thrift shop. Nothing is against the rules. Lydia Hudgens (my photographer for this particular look) is amazing at capturing streetstyle during NYFW. You can view some of her work here.
