First Look: Flag Print Sweatshirt | light wash straight leg jeans | red booties (similar here and here) | Gucci bag | Ray Ban sunnies

Hi guys! Finally got around to my NYFW write ups— this time I decided to break up my coverage into three posts, each covering a different day that I went to shows (honestly because it’ll be less overwhelming for both of us!)

Saturday, February 10th

I wore the look above to my first show of the season, Dan Liu:

What to take note of:

1. Sophisticated pink: I’m not normally into this girly hue, but I love how Dan Liu used pink in unexpected silhouettes and styled the pieces in surprising ways

2. Puffer coats are still going strong- store yours now for next fall or buy one in an unexpected color, pattern or texture

3. Mix lace with more masculine textures like tweed and leather

Second look: Metallic blazer | black skinnies | red suede mules (here and here) | New York hoodie |faux fur bag

When I posted this look to Instagram, I said that it made me feel the most “me” — a little tomboy, a little glam at the same time. I wore this look for afternoon shows on Saturday, for Tao Ray Wang, Son Jung Wan, and Yuna Yang.

Tao Ray Wang:

8692DC35-8A3B-4DB4-B669-7EB8E4D47BB0848B20C9-FF25-423A-BE0C-6B0CA4F9A957AE8348D2-48BF-4DD1-BD29-82E1889551D495293969-6DF5-413A-A915-79CAEE8E3BBFD3B521E0-0671-4708-A16C-B7448F03CA03816ED730-EA91-4C72-A4A5-7DF9144C0B87

What to take note of:

1. Suiting: this trend is just taking off and I couldn’t be more excited. Love how she did the perfect masculine- feminine balance in her pieces- mixing prints like pinstripes with other colors and textures!

2. Red, red, RED: if you haven’t caught on yet, red is THE fashionable color to wear right now: bold, rich and striking in simple yet luxe silhouettes.

3. Strong shoulders: note how Wang did a slightly 80s reminiscent version of a square intense shoulder… obsessed!

Son Jung Wan:

EBA4A409-C05E-48A1-9B0B-F782098A78595BEE1719-2D37-4043-931A-5A45702BA01766543856-2E77-4DA7-A8E6-CBEDB04E0CB019B8FDD3-11FF-4BD9-91AE-A227917AB3B83332E6EB-68F1-4BF7-B89C-5A333884D5EC

What to take note of:

1. Flared sleeves and pants: with cool twists like patterns, inserts and detailing- a refreshing change from skinny and straight legs

2. Print mixing/ texture mixing: you guys know I LIVE for a good mix of textures- naturally I’m obsessing over Son Jung Wan’s magical ways as shown in the looks above

3. Metallics were huge, not just in Wan’s show, but across the board. Her silver looks were just breathtaking.

Yuna Yang:

097EBC47-62DD-446B-94A0-2A1C73FCCF4D22CDBA62-B538-46D8-9322-A7FD4FBA7AEEE46E0105-A0B6-4E3F-AED0-961133C29DA101295C9D-2CD2-437F-A1BF-056D87661594

Yung Yang will always be one of my fave shows to attend; she picks the coolest, most unexpected locations that just ooze vintage New York vibes. Her clothing is the perfect mix of girly and tomboy (!!!) and she is just the sweetest- showgoers always leave with a scented candle that reflects the show’s theme that season!

What to take note of:

1. Sporty stripes : the stripes that graced all your fave 90s pieces are back in a big way— love how she used them to trim tops, necklines and sleeves!

2. Leather and lace: the ultimate juxtaposition in my book- nothing says edgy chic like these two together!

3. Skirts with interesting details, hemlines and textures: I’ve always loved a good mini, and Yuna yang’s asymmetrical midi-ish ones are sooooo good.

So that’s a wrap on part 1! Stay tuned for the next two installments- let me know in the comments, here or on insta, if you’re into my trend breakdowns!

xo, ❤
