Fashion week has been fun, yet exhausting. I have been attending New York Fashion Week for many years, and every year I get a new perspective on fashion, scoping the trends, and coveting the new new. But dodging freezing rain, sleet and snow for the sake of fashion? I don’t take this lightly. I no longer sacrifice my health for fashion like I used to do. It isn’t worth it for my to get the Fashion Week flu because I was barelegged in the city streets.
Yes I take notes. Yes I enjoy the shows. It is very possible to pull out all the stops, and layer everything in my closet onto my body. It is possible to layer in style. I follow street style cues from my favorite websites, and just wear what works best for my body. A how to layer in style is always a work in progress especially when you are petite like me.

Layer in Style
Here is the rundown on how to layer in style. I start with the bottom layers and work my way out. If I want it to peek out, I make sure it is long enough on my neck or sleeves. Consider that your starting point on making a fashion statement. Then I paired an oversized sweatshirt dress over it, and ripped denim. Metallic boots add panache to your wardrobe. The blue leather trench is a vintage style that I purchased a while back, but I still love it. The same goes with the vest. And the bright colors work well together. I added a pop of denim to my look with this strap.
