NYFW Essentials

NYFW Essentials by alissakelly featuring skinny fit jeans

It's that time of the year: New York Fashion Week! Some day I'll make it to New York City and be able to cross the NYFW experience off my bucket list. But (naturally) until then I'm dreaming of what I'd wear to see fashion shows, stalk meet my favorite designers and take in all the fashion goodness NYC has to offer. Since it's February - and cold - I can't help but gravitate toward layers and staple pieces.

1. Pants that pack a punch. Floral and tuxedo are definitely two kinds of (what I like to call) fancy pants. Both can be dressed up with heels and bold accessories - or dressed down with chambray and flats.
2. Heels that kick it up a notch. I am loving the clear trend in the BCBGeneration high heels and black boots with buckle details. Both pairs are pretty different from each other but still make a statement and add more interest to an outfit.
3. Tote bags that hold everything. Although I like smaller bags, NYFW is a busy time running to shows and other events. Having one bag to carry your phone, iPad, camera, planner, lip stick and other important items is essential.
4. Leather (or faux leather) jackets that add polish. Just like the other items I picked, these jackets immediately add polish over a turtleneck, sweater, or tee.
