The way Fashion Week is portrayed in movies, street style photos, and filtered Instagram shots might leave you convinced that editors spend weeks planning their outfits and drop an entire rent check (or three) on new stilettos. But
, as unsexy as it sounds, the jam-packed schedule and unpredictable weather means getting dressed for New York Fashion Week is all about function. That doesn’t mean you can show up in yoga pants, though, nor do you have to look boring—in fact, Vogue editors have the chic-yet-comfy thing down to a science. Some of us rely on vintage lace dresses, while others stick to jeans and a blazer, but everyone has a uniform of sorts—because when you’re zigzagging from Tribeca to the Upper East Side to Bushwick for 10 days straight, you need some degree of consistency.

Right now, I’m thinking of just going Source Family all day every day: white lace dresses, mid-calf or longer, and naked shoes. I’m also obsessed with a certain coat at Balenciaga but have yet to plonk for it. Perhaps by Paris, the weather will have changed and I will be broke, warm, and happy.
