Very rarely will you ever find me in a suit. Ever since I decided not to go the corporate route with my career, I’ve been blessed to wear pretty much whatever I want during the week. Suits are not my favorite thing. They remind me of dreadfully long interviews and never-ending office hallways. Anyway, I digress. The one type of suit I’m actually fond of is the type that is totally on-trend this season. Two pieces, one pattern or color, simple and chic.
Another style essential I always make sure to debut during NYFW is a chic printed dress. Though I spend many a day in black and white, bold prints are my absolute favorite. Whether you opt for a geo-print, an abstract print, florals or ankara, having one seasonal printed dress that’s bold and brilliant is key to a true fashionista’s closet. Here’s how I wear mine:
This September, I was totally expecting Fashion Week to be the usual – transitional weather, often rainy, sometimes cloudy but usually comfortable. Instead we got extreme humidity and heat! So instead of rocking the layers I had planned, I opted for this short-sleeved oversized statement sweater from H&M.
One quintessential piece that every working girl needs in her closet is The Little Black Dress. During NYFW especially, I have very little time to coordinate outfits between meeting deadlines, covering shows and trying not to pass out from exhaustion in between.
It’s officially here! Fashion Week has descended upon New York City and I couldn’t be more excited. Like we do every season here at LoveBrownSugar, we’ll be keeping you up to date on all things from live events to runway shows, backstage beauty trends and more this week! Here’s what you can expect to see on LoveBrownSugar (and why you should be checking in every day):
NYFW Style Essentials
So every year season I trot back and forth to shows in my flyest season’s best and I get SO busy and bogged down with work that I barely get a chance to show you guys what I’m wearing! This season I’ll have a NYFW Style Essentials Series going with a list of the closet essentials I typically wear to Fashion Week and how YOU can make similar pieces work for your everyday wardrobe. What’s a cute outfit if you can’t get some leverage out of it in your closet right? Stay tuned for the first post tomorrow, which will be my version of a Little Black Dress.
LBS Backstage Beauty
