I have to admit that I watch The Devil Wears Prada at least once a year (if not more—who am I kidding?), and every time, it brings me back to the days when all I could do was dream of one day breaking into the fashion industry. There’s no doubting the hard path Andy Sachs had at Runway magazine under the infamous Miranda Priestly, but that wasn’t enough to discourage me from one day being an editor myself.
As a fashion-editor hopeful, I studied all of the outfits from the show, the bad, the good, and the great. As Andy transitions her style, I gleaned great fashion takeaways—especially when it came to winter style in New York City. Ahead, I’m breaking down the five pillars of winter style from The Devil Wears Prada that still hold up today.
