Picking out your outfits for fashion week takes hours of consideration and planning. As much as we’d all like to pretend that every look found in those famed street-style roundups was thrown together effortlessly, nine times out of then, they were crafted days ahead of the first show. As for what inspires them, the previous season’s runway collections are almost always at the top of the list, and this year, for me, will be no different.
Once you decide that that’s the route you’re going to take, the next step is to select which looks to make your muses, usually based on buzziness, the weather, your personal style preferences, and what you already have in your wardrobe, of course. Since I’ve had a running list of my favorite looks from the fall 2023 shows I bore witness to last February for closing in on six months now, selecting the ones I wanted to mimic wasn’t all that difficult. Then, all that’s left to do is fill in the blanks of each outfit with new pieces. Below, see the six fall 2023 runway looks I’m prepared to recreate throughout New York Fashion Week, from the likes of Ferragamo, Bottega Veneta, Prada, and more.
