Forget Mediocre Fashion

New York Fashion Week: Shop What Our Editors Are Wearing This Season

It’s time for New York Fashion Week again. Things get underway with a jam-packed schedule that includes shows from some of New York’s most beloved designers like Altuzarra, Brandon Maxwell, Gabriela Hearst, Khaite and Sergio Hudson among others.

As editors and buyers take in the fall-winter collections, dressing in outfits that prioritize warmth, comfort and style is a must. Here’s what Vanity Fair’s editors will be wearing as they make their way through all the offerings of a new season.

Nicole Chapoteau, Fashion Director

“For my New York Fashion Week look I’ve brought together all of my favorite things. The Kaze masks are the best and I love how they will match all of my looks. The new Miu Miu x New Balance sneakers are perfect to run from show to show while still looking chic. The silhouette of these Fear Of God pants pairs perfectly with flats and heels when I need to transition from day tonight. And to top it off, the perfect weather coat,  which is basically all of what people see. This Moose Knuckles coat is warm and fashion-forward. Voilà! And now I’m ready for shows.”

“I’m going with simplicity this fashion week. A sleek and soft cashmere dress with slightly slouchy Khaite boots that are comfortable enough to wear day in and day out. This heavy, shearling coat is a great layer for the cold temperatures, but easy to remove when there’s the inevitable overheated moment inside. Speaking of, I’ll be carrying around these Kaze KN95 masks in every color of the rainbow as my go-to accessory.”

“I’m the type to skirt around the scrum of photographers, so I appreciate handsome pieces that get the job done. These Proenza Schouler boots are practically welded to my feet, whether with a ruffled Batsheva dress or wool sailor pants. For a change of pace from my usual ’70s denim, these jeans have a breezy cut, with room to sneak in long johns if need be. I recently lost my go-to wool coat (a minor tragedy) but have my eye on this investment piece from Max Mara—the perfect tobacco color that angles to be a new neutral. And since my laptop and charger are the week’s most essential accessories, this snow white Ance Studios tote keeps everything in check.”

“The February-March Fashion season proves to be a bit difficult due to the cold weather conditions. I’m a person who likes to stay warm and keep my look chic and simple–naturally, I lean toward black! Recently I have been loving wide-legged pants, a long oversized coat, and a chunky boot. I always complete my look with a double Evolvetogether mask…in black, of course!”

“Like many of my colleagues, this time of year for show season is always a beast because of the cold temperatures. And my main motto in life is to truly remain comfortable, cozy, and chic. I’ve been loving winter whites, creams, and butter yellows for quite some time, so I’m opting for a neutral, slightly monochromatic look, complete with my favorite Kaze masks to match.”

“The challenge for NYFW in February is trying to stay cold-weather chic. Comfortable and warm fashion is the goal, which can be easily achieved with a good coat. I love this quilted faux leather Stand Studio coat that is a subdued statement piece. For some added color, I’ll be wearing this tie-dye Proenza Schouler turtle neck maxi dress. I love the dress for its eye-catching pattern but also for its stretch jersey material that is easy and comfortable. Perfect for the on-the-job nature of fashion week. Lastly, adding some more texture to the look, you can’t go wrong with an embossed style boot. These croc-effect leather Totême boots add a sleek finish to any ensemble, and the heel is perfect for long, show-hopping days.”

“It’s brick-cold in New York, so I am bundling up for fashion week this season. I love the look of this quilted Stand Studio coat with a long length that will serve as a full-body windbreaker and keep me extra warm. I’m an accessories girl, so I’ll also be styling my outfits with statement pieces like this Clyde bucket hat, which is made of faux fur. Finally, my spin on a snow boot, my platform Loewe loafer boots that have the illusion of a leather sock.”

“Here we are again! I always feel like fashion week sneaks up on us, so I’ll be sticking to easy uniforms. I’ve lived in my Bottega tire boots since I bought them, and the marathon that is fashion week will be no different. They go with everything, are truly the most comfortable, and add a level of “cool” one always needs. A statement coat and black turtleneck are my go-tos. Nothing beats this classic Wolford bodysuit and I will admit to loving The Undoing vibes of this Proenza coat. Of course, I can’t leave the house without my favorite hand sanitizer! I might even have a bottle in every coat pocket just to be sure I’m never without it.”

“I’ve got denim on my mind this season. A great pair of jeans is always my go-to base when I’m feeling casual, but casual doesn’t have to mean boring. The easiest way to make denim more interesting is to add more denim! Denim on denim feels both futuristic and nostalgic all at once, and I love finding ways to reinvent the classic look. This fashion week, I will be wearing my Triarchy cropped denim jacket tucked into a pair of Triarchy relaxed high-waisted ripped jeans—the perfect denim duo. I like to loosely tuck my jeans into a pair of ankle boots for an effortlessly cool look and with this outfit, I’ve decided on a pair of white wedge boots. A coat is essential this time of year and a nude trench with some unexpected texture feels like the perfect addition to my Canadian tuxedo. Finally, a pair of pearl drop earrings add a little elegance.”
