I’m so excited to start sharing all the details on my time at New York Fashion Week!  I wore this outfit for my second full day in New York.  I had an event with RewardStyle, a couple fashion shows, and meetings to attend that day.  When I was planning outfits for my trip, I wanted to be sure they still stayed true to my style.  I know for some NYFW is all about breaking out and putting together a super intense street style look.  As a fashion lover, it’s fun to see all the creative outfits people come up with to wear.  One thing that was important to me was for the people I am meeting and networking with to get a feel for my style and the style I represent on my blog.  I opted to for a mix of classic, trendy, chic and sophisticated.

This outfit hit on a mix of trendy and classic chic.  I love taking trendy pieces and making them work for more everyday style.  This leather and lace skirt is a fun addition to my closet and faux leather skirts are pretty hot this season.  I added in this tie neck blouse to add a professional look to the overall outfit for my meetings that day.  This top would work well with pants or pencil skirt for work.  This skirt is perfect to pair with a black cami for a girls’ night out or date night.  Both pieces are from Zara and I found them online!   I also included a couple similar items from Nordstrom, since I find it easier to online shop from there.

Fun fact, my Tory Burch flats are hiding in my bag in these pics.  I wore my flats when I was walking around, and then changed into heels right before walking into events.  I specifically purchased this bag because I knew it would hold a pair of heels.  I went with black because it worked with all my outfits for the week.  I like that this canvas material gives it a slightly dark charcoal gray look.

Stay tuned for more of  what I wore and a look at some of the shows I attended coming over the next few weeks!  Also, if you want to see video from the shows I attended, I saved them as a NYFW highlight on my Instagram profile!  Just look me up @karenkocich.

    Such a beautiful outfit – and so smart bringing a bag you could hide your heels in and wear flats for a bit. I definitely did not do that and my feet are STILL SORE from fashion week!! Ugh!

  2. Love this whole outfit! The detail on that skirt is gorgeous!

    This is really a classic look with a fun spin because of that skirt. I love the leather and the lace details!

    I feel like getting a little crazy for fashion week is so tempting, but I know that keeping it classic is best! I love the little details though, the touch of lace on the skirt and the fun printed heels keep it feeling like it’s still got a bit of that fashion week edge.
    Chic on the Cheap

    What a perfect look! Classy but edgy at the same time. I keep thinking about trying the backpack trend but I just don’t like the styles. This one is great though. It’s structured and works as a backpack but also as a regular bag! Great choice!

    Welcome to Brooklyn. Perfect backdrop. Dumbo. Boyfriend and I go there a lot. Awesome place for a fashion shoot. I love your outfit. Especially that stylish black leather skirt. I have one leather skirt but it has to be not too hot or cold for me to wear it. I love those stylish heels too but I see that you can only handle them for so long too especially on those cobble stone streets. For my large feet point toe shoes are often tight for me in general.
