Dress code: New York Fashion Week

The stylish yet efficient wardrobe that'll get you from show to show.

With a jam-packed schedule of back-to-back events, taking on New York Fashion Week (September 8–15) is a lot like an endurance workout. A week of running to and from the frenzied shows (and parties) will bring you up to speed on the city's grid system and will often wreak havoc on your feet. Be prepared for any unpredictable string of weather patterns with smart layering, a carryall bag and the number of your driver. To keep up, leave the fuss at home, it’s all about function. And even if you aren't attending any runway shows, here's how you can look the part dressing in key pieces featuring fall's trends like wide leg pants, oversized T-shirts and more:
