Another good idea for a simple but polished fashion week “uniform” when it’s 90 degrees (32 degrees Celsius) in New York: a lightweight white cotton dress with black boots.
It may be too hot to throw on a suede jacket, but it’s never too soon to bust out the latest accessories. Jen Mankins of the highly influential Brooklyn boutique Bird ushered in the fall last September with a blue Mansur Gavriel bucket bag and sculptural necklace.
A little outfit inspiration from last year’s September shows: There is no need to leave the beach completely behind when arriving on the fashion week scene. On the first day of fashion week last year, one guest paired a beachy white dress with polished accessories.
The fact that Anna Ewers is wearing a leather jacket and jeans in this photo from last September leads me to believe that someday the temperature in New York City may actually drop below 90 degrees. Get ready! Beauty shot of Anna and Ola Rudnicka, after the jump.

Remember layering? Well, you might have to do that again soon. Model Bruna Tenorio did a great job of it at last September’s fashion week, mixing ripped jeans with a tailored vest and velvet jacket outside the shows.
Kind of obsessed with this retro look on Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea at the Elie Saab couture show this summer. The glasses! Also, after a few seasons of not seeing jeans because of overall skinny jean fatigue, denim may be back in a big way on the streets this fall, in a variety of cuts and washes. It’s that ’70s thing, as spurred on by the new Gucci collection.
Though fall has its pleasures, it’s always a struggle to let go of summer, even when dressing for New York Fashion Week in September. But you don’t have to pack away all your summer favorites just yet. Alexis Bryan Morgan, now of Rent the Runway, paired a lightweight crimson dress with tassels and embroidery with heels and a structured olive green bag for an outfit that added a businesslike edge to a summertime staple.
Two great transitional outfits on models Ola Rudnicka and Maja Salamon that kept the fun spirit of summer going but introduced a bit of fall seriousness with polished accessories.
Summer is a great time to show off sculptural, minimalist fashion like this quilted print dress, her own design, on Vika Gazinskaya. The slicked-back hair continues on the minimalist vein.
Blogger Cecilie Lindegaard wore a great geometric print vintage dress to the Chanel couture show, layering it with a paneled white top that showcased the 70s collar.
I chanced upon blogger Jenny Bernheim of Margo & Me in this cool setting at a private party at Coachella. Gladiator sandals and a Chloe bag are a great way to accessorize a simple belted dress.
This drab green color made a big impact in menswear this summer, and we can expect to see more of it on the streets come September. It telegraphs “back to work” – but when mixed with an unexpected baby blue crop top on Hanneli Mustaparta, it’s not all work and no play.
