Between Editor in Chief Kat Collings, market editor Nicole Eshaghpour, editor Lauren Eggertsen, and me, we wore approximately 20 outfits to New York Fashion Week S/S 20. We were certainly grateful to have our home base for the week, Hotel Hugo in Soho (follow it here), close to all the NYFW action, so said outfits were kept intact. We're not even going to attempt to count how many pieces we wore, but let's just say that it's probably well over 100.
As you'd guess, everyone spends a lot of time discussing what showgoers are wearing at fashion week, and with that comes a lot of compliments and "Where'd you get that?" questions between shows and parties. When you painstakingly choose your outfits for something like fashion week, it's especially lovely when your peers have kind words, and those compliments stuck with us. With that, keep scrolling to find out (and shop!) the pieces that earned us editors the most compliments at New York Fashion Week this season.
"I like to have at least one go-big-or-go-home moment at fashion week, and this was mine. Bright pink, high slits, swishy movement. What more could you want? I adore the brand Ciao Lucia specifically because it makes special pieces like this. My secret for making bold outfits look a little more relaxed is to pair it with pieces that also carry a bit of personality, like my patchwork sweater. It takes a little bit of pressure off of the pink ensemble and balances the look."
"A photo of this outfit that I posted on Instagram is now my most-liked photo ever, just in case you needed more confirmation that this dress is stellar. I also think part of the success of this look was a strong supporting cast of accessories. I will love Hayward bag designs until the end of time, and I'm thoroughly obsessed with these crochet shoes. The shoes are also so comfy that I didn't get a single blister after walking six miles in them."
This outfit felt very "Copenhagen fashion girl" to me. The pants are definitely the most comfortable thing I wore at NYFW, and while the green is sold out, the white version is available and is even more versatile. The Ganni top is clearly a statement maker, and my only regret is that I don't have a photo of the very pretty back of it.
This outfit might be a little more Paris Fashion Week than New York Fashion Week, but I wore it anyway. I was a bit hesitant to wear all black, especially in early September, but the pearl detail was so special on this suit that I think it stood out.
I've been into suits lately, as you can see. They're just so easy. And this cult-favorite Aritzia tank, Laura Lombardi chunky chain necklace, and Wandler mules via Hampden Clothing really took it up a notch.
"I had to stop myself from wearing this Staud bag every single day because it just looked so good with all my outfits. It's also worth mentioning that this Ganni jacket was probably my most-complemented item of the week."
"Great minds think alike! On the same day that Kat wore her Ciao Lucia outfit, I just happened to be wearing this bright-pink Aritzia cardigan, which I decided to pair with an equally loud, zebra-printed skirt. Not the safest choice, but I think it paid off?"
"I remember seeing this pistachio-colored Bevza blazer on the runway last season and haven't stopped thinking about it since. Everything from the shoulders to the soft neckline made the piece a must-have. I wanted to pair it with something a bit funkier, so I went with a cow-print skirt because the trend is booming right now."
