Well it’s February, and all you fashionistas know what that means… Fashion Week in New York! Ah, what to wear to such an anticipated event? The week is exciting, if somewhat dissonant—a time when we all bundle up in winter’s wool, look at window displays full of spring fashions and then report on the new runway styles for next fall. It’s enough to give any girl a fashion identity crisis.
We like to keep it simple, chic and comfortable, except for a pair of killer heels, of course! The best bet is a dress that will transition from day to night with a few choice accessories. Since it can be chilly at Lincoln Center, we like a sleeve or a little weight to the fabric, and knits are especially versatile. We went shopping at Net-A-Porter for this fab collection; any one of these dresses is sure to have you walking the runway in style! While our frocks remain classic and chic, we’ve chosen a few florals and patterns to add a little punch.
