We'll be covering all happenings of NYFW extensively on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, and we can't wait for you to follow along. But, before we get started there's always the eternal question—what the heck are we going to wear?!

You read that right: While we'd perhaps like you to think we editors have all our NYFW outfits laid out two weeks in advance with color-coded labels and a dry cleaner on speed dial, the truth is we agonize over our looks for this week the same way we do about any big event. Street style has basically become its own event in the fashion world and that means we've got some serious inspiration to dig through. 

When brainstorming my ideal NYFW outfit, I landed on this chic snap of style star Taylor Tomasi Hill. It's got all the elements I look for when it comes to a show-going look.

In this case, it's this sexy, patterned skirt. It gives visual interest without overwhelming the wearer, which is key in my book. 

To balance the skirt, Tomasi Hill wore a comfortable sweater. It may not seem so when you're scanning all the looks from NYFW, but some element of comfort is key—it's too busy a time to be tugging on your outfit all day! Plus, a light layer is perfect for transitioning from the heat outdoors to air conditioned event spaces.

Tomasi Hill's accessories also mirror my favorite picks. I'm an ankle bootie devotee—they go with everything and can be sexy, boho or edgy. I love the unexpected peep toe on hers. The former fashion editor also wore a stack of leather and metal bracelets, which is another go-to of mine. Overall this look screams chic in my book. In case you want to replicate Tomasi Hill's chic style on your own, we've gathered a few items to help you do just that.
