PC: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
New York Fashion Week begins tomorrow! That means hordes of editors, stylists, buyers, celebrities, and bloggers will hit the streets of New York dressed in designer duds. With fashion's power players showing off their enviable wardrobes, like Anna Dello Russo who prepares her 90 looks for fashion week six months in advanced, the rest of us are left scouring our closets for a stylish outfit.

Dressing for Fashion Week is always daunting. Low temperatures, icy winds, and unpredictable storms paired with long days, mile-long treks, and hectic schedules makes dressing chic a challenge.
The key is to stick with basic pieces that are comfortable and that can easily transition from day to night. Must-have pieces that we wouldn't be seen without are blazers, leggings, a Little Black Dress, a cozy sweater, and a statement-making jacket. Pair these essentials with some sky-high stilettos or over-the-knee boots and loads of accessories and you have the perfect look for fashion week.
For a LBD with an unconventional edge, try our Penelope Dress ($187.50)
Qi's sweaters are go-to layering pieces:

And to top it off, shield yourself from the winter winds in our Selina Long Puff Jacket ($295)
Are you ready for the fashion filled week?
