Fashion week is a wild ride from start to finish. First come the invitations and scheduling process, then comes the outfit planning, and then comes the actual attending of the dozens of runway shows, presentations, and parties. It sounds like a lot because it is, but we love it. And if we're being quite honest, one of the most exciting components of this whole shebang is picking out what we're going to wear each day.
While it's definitely fun to call in a handful of designer pieces we've been eyeing, we'd be lying if we didn't admit to popping into Zara to grab a few items we know we can wear to fashion week and beyond. It just so happens that this season, our entire Who What Wear team ended up wearing Zara every single day of fashion week. You heard me—every day. Whether it was go-to shoes, a statement bag, or a last-minute on-trend item we just had to have, Zara came in clutch for our editorial team this NYFW, and we have the pictures to prove it.
Ahead, find out which Zara pieces our editors wore during NYFW.
Kat Collings, Editor in Chief
"If one blazer is good, two is better, right? That's the logic I subscribed to when styling this gorgeous corduroy blazer over a blue plaid suit."
"I counted, and I literally wore these sandals 75% of fashion week. I guess I didn't need to pack six pairs of shoes after all! While not as comfortable as a sneaker, the height isn't too high, and our editor Lauren assures me that they get even more comfortable as you break them in. I love how minimal they are, and how the subtle pink shade works almost as a nude, only a hair more interesting."
Gina Marinelli, Senior Editor
"The main reason I shop Zara is that it's a source for finding something super on-trend that I'm not willing to heavily invest in. The belt bag is a perfect example, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved having my hands free all day."
"I think a great boxy jacket can top off every look, which made this army-green number a go-to for me. The nice monochrome effect it created with this new Rixo skirt I was excited to wear was an added bonus."
"I'm known to do a little panic-shopping before fashion week—essentially scooping up a couple things I feel might be practical to have during the busy workweek. These woven shoes were what I got, and considering how much more expensive they look compared to what they cost and how comfortable they remained despite walking a ton, I have no regrets."
Nicole Akhtarzad, Market Editor
"My favorite thing about this utility jumpsuit is definitely the contrast stitching, but aside from that lovely detail, it also comes with a flattering built-in belt and is so comfortable I never want to take it off."
Lauren Eggertsen, Fashion Editor
"During fashion week, I love wearing bold bright colors and prints like this new scarf-print dress. Everything from the silhouette to the array of contrasting colors had me really excited for yet another jam-packed day of shows. Oh, and my shoes are Zara too."
