It's that time of year again: New York Fashion Week. Models––and model-wannabes––parade down the sidewalk and the catwalk, and everyone plays the name game at the nightly cocktail parties. But don't let the long-limbed beauty in short-shorts or the fashion editor in Balenciaga scare you away. If there ever was a week to strut your stuff, this is it.
And don’t forget: Fashion isn’t just the styles on the runway. It’s also about pairing that perfectly soft J. Crew T-shirt with terrific 3.1 Phillip Lim trousers. Add Alexander Wang accessories, some Chanel to the nails, and just the right dose of nonchalance––and it could be you who is featured in the next street-fashion magazine spread. So pull on those Prada shoes and get ready to enter the jungle.
