Another NYFW has come and gone. This was my fourth season doing NYFW, and this year I took it easy and only did the first four days before going to Asia for Chinese New Year. Unlike other seasons when I would kill myself to go to all the shows and have major fomo when I didn’t, I chose to only go to the shows I really wanted to see this year. Last season I started to feel burned out going to so many shows, it can be exhausting when you have standing only tickets and have to stand for more than 30 minutes each time waiting to go into the shows, which only last for 10 minutes. If you’re curious to see what shows I went to, be sure to check out my Instagram stories NYFW highlights. Today’s post will mainly be focusing on what I wore for the first three days.
For NYFW Day 1, I went with a matching two piece fringe set from Arteaga. Based in Brooklyn, the brand is known for its sustainable fabrics and intricate craftsmanship. I love the fringe detail on this set, and the wintery colors and striped patterns. I actually took these photos the day before NYFW started, hence the snow on the ground. To give the set a more casual vibe, I paired it with a Labels Are For Clothes T-Shirt from River Island. This shirt conveys the message that #labelsareforclothes, not people. I labeled mine as 100% WOMAN, because I love all the things that make me feminine.
For my accessories, I chose patchwork booties in a similar color to the fringe set, as well as a printed handbag. I completed the look with statement feather earrings from Nocturne Studio. The final touch on this look is the amazing ponytail I got from the Redken Styling suite. I’m obsessed with how it looks and how much volume the stylist managed to achieve with my fine, Asian hair.
For NYFW Day 2, I went with old school glamour wearing a vintage jumpsuit and faux fur coat. I found this vintage jumpsuit from Ritual Vintage and it’s such a gem. The velvet top and pleated bottom make this a standout piece, and I love the peekaboo part in the middle. To make this jumpsuit weather appropriate, I layered a vintage top underneath. I like how the colors of the top peek out from under the jumpsuit. For a truly glamorous touch, I completed the look with a red faux fur coat.
I chose delicate accessories for this look, including a small novelty handbag and a mix of fun pins placed on the shirt collar. I added a tropical touch with palm tree print socks paired with wine red heels.
My outfit for NYFW Day 3 was all about color. I wore a one-of-a-kind two piece set designed by the talented Brett Adams. This set is actually reconstructed from a men’s Brooks Brothers shirt. How cool is that?! I especially love the cut-out sleeves on the top, which is one of Brett’s signature designs. I paired the set with a bright pink bodysuit for a sharp color contrast and warmth. Since I wanted to show off the cool sleeves, I chose a pink and gray color blocked vest for my outerwear. A vest is a great option for when you have fun sleeves!
I completed the outfit with a mint green circle bag from Brahmin. I’m obsessed with this color, it’s not super common for a handbag, so I was so glad to find this one. For my shoes, I chose my favorite Coach velvet clogs for a cool girl vibe. Finally, I went with pink mirror sunglasses from TIJN.
