For many of us, the Western clothing trend is little more than a passing fad. It’s an excuse to don our most costumey cowgirl clothes, layer fringe over fringe, and wear cowboy hats unironically for the first time, well, ever. But for actual Westerners, the movement is laden with cultural significance. Much of the Western wear we know and love harkens back to the rodeo. Our endlessly trendy outfits are the offspring of the uniform that cowboys and cowgirls have been wearing for decades—button-downs, jeans, and boots that have their roots in riding horses, lassoing steers, and tending to the family ranch. Put simply, our must-haves are nothing more than knockoffs of the things genuine Westerners have owned and worn for years.

Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to fly to Las Vegas to attend the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. The veritable epicenter of Western culture, the WNFR is a 10-day event involving parties, pageants, and competitions. On Wednesday, I attended a pre-WNFR party hosted at a Vegas nightclub. On Thursday, I moseyed around Cowboy Christmas, a holiday market loaded with Western-inspired baubles. On Friday, I caught the opening of this year’s Miss Rodeo USA pageant, and post-gamed with a night at the rodeo. And on Saturday, I saw a world championship freestyle bullfighting match. At each of these events, I met people who’d genuinely call themselves cowboys and cowgirls, and I asked them to tell me a little bit about the Western fashion scene.

My main takeaway was that we’ve all gotten Western wear a little bit wrong.

For starters, the Western fashion movement encompasses a lot more than we collectively recognize. It’s not all button-downs, cowboy boots, fringe-lined jackets, and denim. Animal prints abound. Sequins are abundantly on offer. Bohemian silhouettes are about as ample as tailored, rodeo-worthy looks. Belts are more statement-making than bolo ties. Turquoise jewelry is everywhere. And you’re as likely to score “cowgirl clothes” at Free People as you are at Boot Barn—though some combination of the two is usually preferred.

But the other thing we’ve missed is how absolutely welcoming the Western fashion space is. Time and time again, the people I spoke to emphasized the Western movement’s inherent inclusivity: The most beautiful thing about Western fashion is that it invites you to be yourself. Rarely does an aesthetic not care whether you dress up or dress down. But in the Western world, denim-on-denim (and sometimes, on-denim) is as acceptable as an outfit crafted entirely from sequins. At every event I attended, some people were dressed to the nines with hair and makeup to match, and others were clad in the casual garb they’d wear on a ranch. And no one was out of place. It was clear, too, that everyone put care into what they wore; some merely expressed that care through sparkle, while others paid more attention to the details on their jeans.

This wholehearted acceptance of the gamut of style is something we’ve collectively gestured toward in recent years. It’s the kind of thing we’re aiming for when we embrace “ugly” fashion trends. When we celebrate the dad sneaker. When we take genuine, earnest pleasure in wearing the strangest vintage clothing we can find. Still, these moments are tinged with an undercurrent of irony; when we wear aughts-inspired clothing, we’re doing so self-awarely—implicitly making fun of the tacky clothes we all used to wear.

It’s disappointingly rare to find a sartorial movement that makes space for everyone to simply be themselves. We’re not quite there yet—but the Westerners have been there for a while.

1. Sequins are everywhere.

Real Westerners are all in on sequins. Sparkles abound in ways that thoroughly surprised me, given our mainstream understanding of what Western wear looks like. I was expecting structured silhouettes, rigid fabrics, and loads of leather accessories. And while those things were everywhere, sequins were just as abundant—not only at parties, but at the rodeo, too.

I asked Shaley Ham (of @WestDesperado) to tell me a little bit about where she buys her trendiest Western duds. Nasty Gal topped her list, and she literally showed up to the pre-WNFR party wearing the gold version of that silver longline top I’ve included below.

2. Turquoise is the jewelry go-to.

Western clothing isn’t entirely composed of so-called “cowgirl clothes“—a lot of Western ensembles drip with flowy, bohemian appeal. And one of the places this is most evident is in the jewelry sphere. Westerners go all in on all kinds of accessories—bags, boots, hats, bandanas—but they don’t skimp on jewelry, either. Ham showed up to a handful of WNFR events decked out in turquoise statement-makers, which she scored at places like Free People and Native American-owned Wild Honey Turquoise.

3. No outfit is complete without a jacket.

Western fashion is all about the layers. And no ensemble is complete until it’s been topped off with a hat, scarf, and jacket. Classic denim jackets, structured leather coats, flowy bohemian cardigans, and tailored velvet blazers are all on the menu. And they can get as statement-making—or as subtle—as you want them to.

4. Scarves and bandanas are the cherry on top of any look.

Though bandanas continue to endure as the go-to Western neckpiece, Ham says scarves of all kinds are welcome. Silky neck scarves, for instance, nod to classic Western fashion without taking the reference too literally. Some of her go-to brands for clothes and accessories include Retro West, Double D Ranch, and Free People—all of which are featured below.

Retro West The Barlow Scarf $45

Double D Ranch American Assemblage Scarf $42

Free People Whipstitch Print Bandana $40

5. Denim is a must, and Wrangler is a classic.

Denim is a huge part of Western culture. It’s what people wear when they’re riding horses or tending to the family ranch. And it’s also what athletes wear when competing in the rodeo. One of the biggest names in the space is Wrangler, a clothing brand that’s been around since 1904. Ham wears it. Ham’s mom, who used to compete in rodeos, wears it. Even Lil Nas X referenced it in his seminal hit, “Old Town Road.”

(Full disclosure: Wrangler covered my trip to Vegas. But the number of times people complimented Wrangler, praised the brand’s legacy, and referred to the company as an icon within Western fashion was so notable I couldn’t not mention it.)

6. Contemporary takes on cowboy boots are officially cowgirl-approved.

Unsurprisingly, cowboy boots abound within the Western fashion sphere. But according to Ham, trendy, modern-day takes on the cowboy boot are just as abundant. Boots of all shapes, sizes, and silhouettes can reference the classic cowboy boot—no square-toe required.

But if you do opt for a more traditional shoe, make sure your jeans are long enough to cover them almost entirely. (Experts on the Wrangler team said highwaters are only acceptable with modern boots. They’re a decided no-no with classic cowboys.)

7. Prints of all kinds abound.

The story of the American West isn’t merely one about cowboys and ranch-hands. Native Americans have played an equally important role—one many Westerners are apt to recognize and honor, often through their clothing. Many go-to Western shops are Native American-owned, and many popular pieces are rendered in prints and textiles that nod to the indigenous roots of the American West.

Other prints that are less easily categorized are plentiful, as well. (See the Cowgirl Relics blazer below.)

Double D Ranch American Assemblage Vest $835

Cowgirl Relics Vintage Cowboy Print… $78

buy it

Double D Ranch Big Bend Bedroll Tunic $208

8. Leather bags are an absolute staple.

Leather bags are an excellent go-to, no matter your aesthetic. But in the Western world, leather crossbodies tend to come rendered in an animal prints, hand-tooled and textured, and covered in fringe. Modified designer bags—think: classic Louis Vuittons, dripping with fringe and adorned with stones—are particularly popular.

Neverending Threads The Rodeo Queen Bag $194

9. Luxe textiles, like velvet and faux fur, are just as abundant as leather and denim.

The West typically summons visions of denim, leather, suede—even snakeskin. But cowgirls love a velvet power suit, and they love a fluffy faux fur coat, too. These lavish textiles juxtapose beautifully with some of the more rugged jeans and jackets that comprise the Western sphere. And they seamlessly complement all the sequins and animal prints on offer.

10. Animal prints are big.

It should come as no surprise that a group of people known for raising cattle and riding horses appreciates a good animal print. But prior to my time in Vegas, I hadn’t associated the Western world with anything of the sort. Sure, cow spots had a place in cowgirl clothes. And snakeskin made sense, too. But leopard prints? In the West? No way.

My, how wrong I was. Everywhere I turned—no matter where I was—I was greeted by an array of animal prints. Leopard print dresses, and scarves, and cardigans. Snake print tops. I even spotted a pair of tiger stripe bell bottoms. Florals were infrequent, and polka dots were hard to find. But animal prints were absolutely profuse.

11. Belts are a big deal. And not just anyone can wear them.

Belts carry not just sartorial—but cultural—significance within the Western world. Because those classically Western, oval-shaped belt buckles aren’t mere fashion statements—they’re trophies. When a cowboy or cowgirl wins a rodeo event, they take home one of those big metal buckles. And they wear it proudly.

Given this, it’s generally frowned upon to wear one of those buckles, unless you or a loved one has genuinely won it. To avoid veering into “poser” territory, you should opt for a concho belt—or a leather belt with an entirely different buckle—instead.

Nasty Gal Double Up Western Belt $8

Free People Turquoise Leather Ring Belt $228

12. Fringe is, of course, on the menu.

It should surprise no one to hear that fringe is a staple in the Western world. That said, I saw a lot less of it than I expected to. Other statement-making details—namely, sequins—seemed a lot more abundant.

Trendy and Tipsy Vintage Western Beaded… $110

13. And obviously, no ensemble is complete without a hat.

Bandanas aren’t the only accessories that have gotten referential makeovers. Cowboy hats are still incredibly popular, but Ham says she’s seen cowboy-esque hats popping up more and more. While many Westerners don’t wear cowboy hats 24/7, they are the go-to statement accessory when an outfit needs a little je ne sais quoi.

Though the chronically single folks among us may dread February 14 every year, the debut of Rihanna’s 2020 Savage X Fenty Valentine’s Day lingerie collection might actually be enough to have everyone—regardless of relationship status—looking forward to the holiday for the first time, like, ever. Because seriously, Rihanna’s new V-Day lingerie line is swoon-worthy, and we can’t whip out our wallets fast enough.

The collection features sexy bralettes, mesh bodysuits, flowy teddies and, of course, tons of appliqué hearts. Black, white and red all over, the lingerie screams V-Day. Naturally, Rihanna knew where to draw the line between sultry and cheesy; though pretty obviously Valentine’s-themed, the lingerie is sure to look hot as hell on anyone who wears it.

As if things couldn’t get any better, Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty V-Day collection is size-inclusive, with most of the designs going up to size 3X in undies and other intimates, and 44DD in bras. Because everyone deserves to look sexy. And for those of you worried about a price jump for larger sizes (which, if you’ve ever shopped plus-size, you know this is an actual concern), Rihanna’s got you. All sizes are the same price.

Speaking of prices, the entire line ranges from about $20 to $96, so it’s actually affordable to wear the same lingerie as Rihanna—a dream we didn’t know we had until now. There are even Savage X Fenty lingerie bundles available for purchase—which include sets of several *HOT* matching items—for all you Savage X Fenty VIP members. (BRB, putting this on my V-Day wishlist.)

In the spirit of the holiday, we’ve gone through and picked out a few of our fave pieces from the line. Whether you’ll be showing the goods off to the mirror or a partner (or both), you’re gonna look amazing, sweetie.

Although for many of us the weather is still bone-chillingly freezing, the deals from end-of-season sales are seriously heating up. Retailers are beginning to shell out their new collections and seasonal garb, which means we get to snag clothes and accessories for a fraction of their original price. It’s a cold-weather miracle—and Zara’s winter sale is the perfect opportunity to stock up on trends while still leaving enough to pay for rent. While I’d rather spend all my dough on cute clothes, it’s just not possible if I want a place to live (and house my 38 pairs of sunglasses), so I’m forever grateful for sales chock-full of trendy clothing.

Zara is a go-to for pretty much every type of clothing item, yes, but they’re truly incredible at working in trends seamlessly. Even the wildest trends seem cool when they’re from Zara. Plus, the retailer already has affordable prices. So the fact that there’s a huge sale going on right now? It’s basically perfection. Inside Zara’s sale, you’ll find subtle but sexy sheer clothing, styles from the early aughts given new life and party pieces ready to amp up any soiree. Whether you’re a social butterfly with parties every weekend, or just want to step it up in the street style arena, Zara’s winter sale is for you.

Below, you’ll find 15 of our favorite Zara sale pieces ready to join your wardrobe for the rest of winter—and even into spring. From trendy blouses you’ll want to wear day or night to mini dresses ready to be paired with tights and a denim jacket (or with a light cardigan when the weather warms up), these sweet, sweet Zara deals are ripe for the taking. Go ahead and treat yourself to something you might not purchase at full price, and live your boldest, trendiest life this season.

In her time as a model (and a style icon), Karlie Kloss has worn many, many outfits. So, it only makes sense that she would have discovered the perfect balance between chic, cute and casual—creating the ultimate look. Karlie Kloss’ suit and sneakers street style outfit proves that the model has uncovered the secret to creating this balance, and I am forever changed. Pulling off a suit can be hard on its own, but pulling off a suit with sneakers is even harder (at least for me). Karlie Kloss seems to have unlocked the code, though, showing her cute and casual fashion prowess with an Instagram outfit photo.

Posing in front of a California sunset, Karlie Kloss donned a simple two-piece suit, white tee and and white sneakers. Could it really be that easy? It seems that in all my efforts to figure out how to wear the right combination of boardroom-ready suiting and street style-approved sneakers, I got lost along the way. Well, Karlie Kloss is here to bring me (and all those with similar fashion quandaries) back to the street style promised land with this message: You’re overthinking it. Sometimes the best ensembles are the simplest ones—this suit and sneakers outfit included.

Basically, Karlie Kloss has given us all the ultimate formula to creating the ideal suit and sneakers look. Start simple and work your way up from there. It always helps to start with what you already have. Got a black suit hanging in your closet? Start by pairing it with a simple tee and sneakers you wear all the time. You’ll feel comfortable wearing items you already own, and can work up to playing it a little less safe. Wherever you are on the scale (of simple to maximalist, that is), Karlie Kloss’ street style look has proven that you’ll look great even in the simplest of ensembles.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it seems fitting that playful heart accessories are shaping up to be one of the season’s biggest fashion trends. Romantic style is bona fide fashion genre, but it usually refers designs featuring billowy sleeves, silk and lace detail, and fluid, ethereal silhouettes. 2020’s version of romantic fashion, on the other hand, is much more literal. And while it may feel borderline kitsch, Instagram girls, style bloggers and designer runways can be trusted as a source for making unspoken sartorial judgement calls. And they’ve deemed this trend more than appropriate to wear—even among those of us who graduated middle school a long, long time ago.

It may be daunting to invest in a trend with a motif that we’re used to finding printed on frilly dresses and embossed on handbags in the children’s department, but grownup brands and e-tailers are definitely endorsing the trend. Of course, the seasonal parallelism between the fact that it’s nearly February and that hearts are a universal signifier of the unapologetically pink-and-red hued Hallmark holiday, we assure you this trend not only couldn’t be more fun to wear, but it will also stick around post-February as well.

While Lolita-esque sunnies and ’80s-era heart prints come and go with cyclical regularity, this year, it’s all about heart-designed statement accessories to add a touch of girlish charm to any look with one piece. Hearts are cropping up on everything from earrings, handbags and clutches—and even vintage-inspired lockets seem to be taking over the enduring coin necklace trend.

The best part? The heart accessories trend is surprisingly easy to wear. If you find the thought of looking like you’ve purchased a heart-shaped accessory from a 5-year-old’s dress-up chest a little daunting, you can always opt for a subtler way into the trend—like a heart-shaped locket or some heart-shaped statement earrings. And of course, if you’re a fearless maximalist that isn’t afraid of looking a little “extra,” opt for a statement clutch you can pair with everything from your go-to jeans to your cocktail hour look.

If there’s one article of clothing my wardrobe must always have, no matter the season, it’s an oversized shirt. It could be a flannel, a button down, a band tee—Whatever it is, the only requirement is that it’s big. And while I thought I was good at pulling off this look, turns out Hailey Bieber’s oversized shirt street style outfit is here to knock me down a few pegs. Bieber seriously knows how to rock an oversized shirt, and I’m taking notes.

Leaving a dance class on Wednesday in Los Angeles, Hailey Bieber wore a simple cropped tank, rolled Champion sweatpants and a very, very cool orange plaid oversized flannel. The shirt hails from designer S.K. Manor, and is actually on sale for $162 right now. (It was originally $405.) So, go ahead and snag this oversized S.K. Manor flannel while you still can. The sunset hues in the shirt are perfect for any time of year—and orange is trending for 2020. It’s a win/win oversized situation.

Look—I know it isn’t necessarily difficult to pull off an oversized shirt look, but Hailey Bieber has it down to a science. Wearing a tank top or bralette under an unbuttoned top creates a cool contrast between the small shirt and the big shirt. And while adding sweatpants was a risky move (I’d usually go with something tighter like leggings or skinny jeans.), it paid off. The addition of the Nike sneakers that actually matched the colors in the oversized shirt plus the red Louis Vuitton bag just tied the whole ensemble together. This is no longer a workout look, but a seriously good street style outfit from Hailey Bieber. Color me impressed.

It may still be freezing outside—even Los Angeles was fraught with 57 degree weather on Tuesday—but I’m determined to be prepared for when the sun comes back out and warms my shivering bones. Finding swimsuits in plus-sizes that are actually sexy can be super difficult, though. Luckily, GabiFresh’s 2020 plus-size collection with Swimsuits For All has nine plus-size bathing suits, and I’m not kidding when I say I want every single one.

I’m lucky enough to have access to a pool, so my mind is always on new swimsuits. (I even have a couple of swimsuits from GabiFresh’s last Swimsuits For All drop, but you can never have too many!) I see so many cute bathing suits whenever I online window shop, but a lot of them are made with thin people in mind. I’m a firm believer that you should wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, but if what you want to wear doesn’t come in your size, that’s a major bummer. That’s why I got so excited when the new GabiFresh x Swimsuits For All collection dropped. Like, thank you for reading my mind!

GabiFresh x Swimsuits For All.

The entire collection is very much desert-inspired, which is perfect for any and all vacation vibes—or just hanging by the pool. Your Instagram feed is about to get really hot, y’all. Plus, the campaign features model Mama Cox, who passed away in December 2019. Seeing her looking absolutely stunning in these swimsuit photos is a wonderful reminder of her beautiful existence in this world.

Whether you’re a fan of plus-size one-pieces or bikinis, this desert collection includes both, so you can wear whatever your heart desires. The bikini tops are all cup-sized 10 D/DD-24 G/H, meaning you can match the bathing suit top to your bra size. (The bottoms, while sold with the tops, are also sizes 10-24.) No more worrying about getting the right supportive fit. GabiFresh has seriously won my heart with this feature.

GabiFresh x Swimsuits For All.

To give you a look at what’s in the GabiFresh x Swimsuits For All collection, I’ve rounded up my favorite bathing suits from the drop below. All are available right now (and on sale!) on the Swimsuits For All website. Seriously, good luck trying not to buy all of them.

I’m never one to not make the case for athleisure-wear, and it seems neither is America’s favorite street style maven, Hailey Bieber. The model is consistently gifting us with incredible looks, so it’s a special treat when she wears something that’s ridiculously cute and relatively accessible. Hailey Bieber’s street style outfit from LIVINCOOL is not only the ideal casual monochrome ensemble, but you can get the look for $200. Cozy, comfy and at a price that’s not the same amount as my rent? Um, yes please.

Of course, $200 isn’t necessarily in everyone’s clothing budget—I get that. Each piece in the set is $100, so if you want to cut the cost of Hailey Bieber’s street style look, go for just the cropped sweatshirt or cozy sweatpants. Or, if this month’s budget is causing you to put a halt on on shopping sprees (Been there.), you can just take some inspiration from Bieber’s outfit and recreate it with pieces you already have in your closet. Honestly, the possibilities are endless—but it’s still exciting to see a celebrity wearing something that isn’t the same price as my entire closet put together. (Plus, the ensemble is just cute as hell.)

Light blue plays well with pretty much any season, so you’re sure to get wear out of this set in every season. I mean, who doesn’t want an ensemble that feels like pajamas but is socially acceptable to wear out in the streets?

Y’all—we NEED to talk about Zara’s spring 2020 collection. I’m a total shopaholic year-round, but wow, I have never been so tempted to buy. Do you think my roommates will be pissed if I spent an entire month’s rent on floaty dresses and puffy-sleeved blouses? I’ll give them full access to my closet to make up for it! JK, I would never ever do that.

Spring 2020 is gearing up to be one of the ~prettiest~ seasons yet, with flirty, frilly trends like sweet dresses and pastel hues galore. Of course, you can feel free to lean into these femme vibes and go full-on cutesy, or edge them up with a combat boot here, a black moto jacket there. Personally, I’ll be rocking my flowy prairie dresses Little Women style, no regrets. Whatever your look, read on for a few of the most eye-catching styles you can shop at Zara right now. Sorry in advance if this pushes you to spend all your rent money on clothes—we’re in the same boat. But at least we look good!

Hi, it’s me, the new Fashion & Lifestyle Editor here at StyleCaster. As a longtime beauty writer, making the switch to working in capital-F Fashion was more than a little bit daunting. Especially when you factor in that my first week on the job just so happened to be New York Fashion Week. I had to look office-appropriate, feel comfortable enough to run from show to show, and still be on-trend enough to get stopped for a few street style snapshots. It wasn’t easy to create the perfect street style outfits that still worked well for my first week as an ~official~ fashion editor, but according to my Instagram likes, I did a pretty good job.

I’d be lying if I said I woke up every morning of Fashion Week and threw on whatever thrilled me. It’s my first Fashion Week as an editor, not my first Fashion Week ever, y’all. I knew the drill! In reality, NYFW requires a lot of prep, and I had four key references when styling my looks. First, a few brands very kindly lent me pieces to be styled, which made a few of my outfits no-brainers. Second, my subscription to Rent The Runway really came in clutch, as I was able to wear an outfit to an AM show, drop it off at the Rent The Runway store, and have a new look delivered to my apartment for the very next day. Third, I thrifted a LOT of fun accessories. When you can’t splurge on designer duds, jazzing up your current wardrobe with unique thrift finds can really change the game. Last but not least, I had my very own closet, of course. There’s no better time to explore your own wardrobe and get creative with what you’ve already got than while prepping some NYFW slays.

Day One:

Here I am posing with my far-more-stylish friend, Belle! Afaf Zahira, the genius Creative Director of Heurueh, blessed me this (very cold) Fashion Week by lending me a few beautiful faux fur coats from her company. This pink-and-brown fur situation is my fave, and I wore it not once, but twice this week. While I’m all for wearing my fave pieces often on the reg, it’s rare to repeat during NYFW, so that says a lot about how much I loved this coat!

Because it was rainy and gloomy outside, I stuck with cheery bright pink but kept my overall look comfortable, with basic black boots and the Topshop Rose Long Sleeve Shirtdress. I paired it all with a classic black Chanel bag and a matching (lol) black umbrella. Since the look was so low-key, I really didn’t expect to get my photo taken, but because my friend, Belle, was also wearing a pink faux fur Heurueh coat, the photogs couldn’t get enough of us together. Shout out Will from @collectiveframes, aka my all-time fave street style photographer! Pro tip: If you’re scared to get your photo taken solo, coordinate with a friend.

Day Two:

‘Twas on this day that I snapped with a full athleisure fit. My joggers, long-sleeved shirt, and yellow bomber are all by Pyer Moss, and I rented the trio using my trusty Rent The Runway subscription. Y’all, I wouldn’t have survived Fashion Week without it! (Use my code RTRFAM11C7505 for a discounted membership if you feel the urge!) I styled the $1,035 three-piece set with some rain boots I picked up at River Island during a recent London trip, and avoided any rain-ruined hair by throwing mine up in a basic pony.

To distract from the underwhelming hairdo, I whipped up this black-and-yellow graphic eye look. I felt VERY nervous with the dramatic makeup and updo, but almost everyone I saw agreed this was my best look of the week. Good makeup can really make or break a ‘fit, y’all. To think, sweatpants and rain boots were my top NYFW slay!

Night Two:

When Day Two was winding down, a surprise landed on my desk. Okay, in my email inbox: a ticket to Christian Siriano’s Fall/Winter 2020 show. I was over the moon! I knew right away that I needed something a little more glam than my Pyer Moss athleisure look, so I ran home and threw on a look Victoria’s Secret had gifted me for just such an occasion. I paired one of their bustiers (The Lightly Lined Bustier is the most similar style currently available) with the stunning Button Midi Skirt in “Bronzed Olive” and grabbed one of my go-to thrift finds, a small black beaded evening bag. Was I cold? Yes. Did I slay? Yes. Zero regrets.

While I usually snag a second-row seat (Sometimes, for smaller shows, even front row!), I found myself fourth row for Siriano, a seat I was still thrilled to have. In fact, it gave me the perfect view of the star-studded front row across the way. I watched Heidi Klum, Alicia Silverstone, and Leslie Jones as closely as I watched the actual models—I even snapped this video of Leslie cheering on Coco Rocha, which then went viral, getting posted by Saint Hoax, InStyle, and even Christian Siriano himself. No big deal!!! (It was a very big deal.)

Day Three:

This outfit is brought to you by SKIMS Body Tape. Not really, but it should be, because I relied on it heavily to achieve this, um, perky look. Atop my tape I wore a Proenza Schuller Wildflower V-Neck Dress, which typically costs a cool $1650, but you guessed it, I scored it using Rent The Runway. I also rented the Diane Von Furstenberg Navy Soiree Top Handle Bag, thereby saving myself $548 bucks. I topped off my look with the Lele Sadoughi Sugar Petite Padded Candy Jeweled Headband, which got me approached by many a hair blog photographer whilst posing for street style photos. For a little contrast, I threw on the Steve Madden Kinga Boot in “Blue Snake.” I wouldn’t normally clash like this in my daily life, but at Fashion Week, anything goes!

It was in this outfit that I answered some questions for a Jimmy Kimmel segment, in which I knew I would most likely get made fun of, because, well, that’s what Jimmy Kimmel segments are all about. He asked questions about baseball scandals and my friend (Belle again!) and I could only respond with “Huh?!” on repeat. Looking back at the clip now, though, the most embarrassing part was my not-so-TV-appropriate cleavage. I loved this look, but will not be wearing it again, LOL.

Bella Gerard

Day Four:

On this day, I was generously gifted a look by Petite Studio, a brand that caters specifically to petite bodies. This was especially cool as someone who doesn’t have the tall-and-skinny model body type so often seen at fashion-related events (Do better, NYFW!). As a 5’1 curvy gal, I was beyond excited to give their stuff a go, and I was ultimately quite pleased with my picks. I snagged this blue-and-stone-colored set from the brand’s coming-soon Spring collection, and inspired by the color-blocking, I paired one of my Steve Madden blue Kingas with one stone-colored boot from the depths of my closet. I cinched my waist with a white fur Moschino belt I gifted myself for my birthday last year from Nordstrom Rack.

This look is not my usual style, and I admit, I was a little nervous to see what people would think. Especially because of the boots! I did a poll on my Instagram Stories asking how people felt about the mismatched shoes (So very Carrie Bradshaw, if I do say so myself!) and 73% of voters were in favor. I doubt I’d try it again, but I’m glad it was a hit.

Day Five:

Five days in, my incredible hot pink Heurueh coat made its second appearance. Get a load of that lining! This time around, I paired it with the Topshop Floral Ditsy Flounce Midi Skirt and the Marissa Webb Emmerson Oxford Shirt. Another rainy day, I kept my shoes simple with comfortable black boots and saved my hair from frizz with the Lele Sadoughi Jet Mixed Crystal Headband.

This look was so low-key, but it ended up being a great lesson in accessories: making my basic button-down and skirt Fashion Week ready was easy with a bold coat and hair accessory! If there were two standout staples for me this fashion week, they were faux fur and funky headbands. I was mostly backstage checking out the shows’ beauty looks for StyleCaster on this day, but when a last-minute change allowed me to stay for the Libertine show, I still felt glam enough to attend.

Bella Gerard

Night Five:

Is it obvious that I went to Topshop before Fashion Week began? Here I am in yet another Topshop piece, the Smudge Mesh Long Sleeve Midi Dress, which gave me serious Fuzzi vibes. I reached for my classic black Chanel bag yet again, plus the Steve Madden Dakota boots in “Black Suede,” and bam! A look was born! As you can tell by the photo, I was really feeling myself.

That said…At this point in the week, my friends and Insta followers were hardcore gassing me up, and I had over 200 DMs praising my cool new job, my stylish outfits, and my “super fun life.” A reality check for anyone who felt that way: My feet were KILLING me, I was majorly stressing about if I was over-posting, and after being surrounded by models and fashion’s elite all week, I did not feel very cute. Instagram is a very fun highlight reel, but don’t be fooled. I love Fashion Week, but there’s more (stress) than meets the eye!

Bella Gerard

Day Six:

Ah, the final day. I woke up with shin splints after a week of running around! Because of this, I paired my nautical-business-casual look with my Puma Rise Sneakers, and while I was worried I’d be judged for not wearing heels or boots, I actually received a ton of compliments. Who would’ve thought! Up top, I had on two Rent The Runway gems I paired together: this Tory Sport Breton Stripe Knit Skirt, originally $248, and the Victoria / Tomas Green Striped Blazer, originally $155. I’m also wearing a graphic tee from Anthropologie that I found in the sale section, which features drawings of Oprah Winfrey and Anna Wintour with the phrase “Win-Win.” How iconic is that? I also wore a simple, braided black headband, because if you haven’t been able to tell, I wasn’t in the mood to wash my hair this week. What can I say, Fashion Week is exhausting!
