What To Wear: Fashion Week

9/17/2008 12:04:00 PM Posted by Christina

New York Fashion Week is over and UK Fashion Week is in full swing. Since my local Fashion Week in Florida is quickly approaching, I have been on the search for quick yet equally chic outfits for the event. Tampa Bay Fashion Week will also be a platform for networking, so I want to make a good impression. Elle is at the top of my list of trusted fashion publications so I researched and starred some of my favorite street style looks for NY Fashion Week for inspiration. The color palette for the attendees was black, white and neutrals. Here is another dose of street style, Fashion Week reloaded...A simple LBD or mini summer dress is perfect with an oversized blazer for balance, cinched at the waist, and platforms. Get this look with these similar pieces...

1. black & white dress 2. oversized blazer 3. peeptoe platforms



Simple mid-thigh shorts and knee-high boots are a good match for this ruffled blouse. Get the look with this similar finds...
1. ruffled blouse 2. mid-thigh shorts 3. knee-high boots



Toughen-up a sweet ruffled dress with a leather jacket and peep-toe booties. Here are similar pieces to achieve this look...

1. lace ruffled dress 2. leather biker jacket 3. peep-toe booties



Other looks I admire:



All black in different textures...


Graphic hip-length t-shirt, skinny jeans and gladiators keeps it casually chic....



Go all-the-way rocker glam with plaid pants, a chain belt and peep-toe pumps...



Pair casual denim shorts with a tailored button-up and blazer...





Take a risk with just a long tee and leather biker vest...



The rule of thumb is something black, something leather and something edgy. Rocker, bad girl is the persona. Think classicly risque'!


For a special treat, here is an outfit I wore to a fashion show a few months ago...
