Being that we are in the midst of New York Fashion Week, I decided to create a look that I felt represented this exciting time. In my opinion, this is the moment to have the most fun experimenting with different clothing and letting your style speak for itself while showcasing exactly who you are. For me, I had a bit of trouble piecing this look together (believe it or not) as it is slightly out of my comfort zone. Of course, I’ve layered dresses over tops before and worn sneakers with more formal pieces, but there was something about this look that I struggled with. I guess I could say taking a previously worn New Year’s Eve dress and transforming it into a daytime look was a bit bolder than what I’m used to. That said, my main priority and what I feel like is most important when styling yourself, is making sure that you feel comfortable, confident, and authentic. You should never feel like you are putting on a costume or wearing something just because it’s on trend. In the end, I found a way to make this look work for me by toning it down with black accessories and really leaving the dress as the focal piece. I used my leather jacket as sort of a “safety blanket” (lol) and paired it with my most worn choker for some additional familiarity. In efforts to provide a bit more contrast however, I opted for my white backpack instead of my traditional black one. By the time I left my apartment to shoot, I can honestly say I was quite pleased with how this look turned out. From the differing textures, to the mix of casual and more elegant garments, everything seemed to come together pretty seamlessly. Now, my last suggestion in tackling NYFW or just dressing for every day life, is to simply have fun with it because at the end of the day, “life’s too short to wear boring clothes! Until next time!
