As you’ve probably seen on The LA Girl and our Editor-in-Chief Erika De La Cruz’s socials, we recently attended New York Fashion Week and had a busy few days full of fashion filled events! Picking the perfect outfit for an event is half of the fun, and this year we chose to have a theme of the color black. Though we kept the looks on this theme, each of the events we attended had very different vibes, so we got to play with so many fun pieces to fit the specific occasions. Sometimes putting together a full look, no matter the occasion, can be overwhelming, so we thought it would be fun to show you how you can recreate these looks, too. Whether you’re trying to find a fun fit for an upcoming event, or just want some general outfit inspo, we hope this styling tips help you pop off in these fits!
Look #1 – Brunch
Our Editor-in-Chief attended a new skincare line preview brunch at The Crosby Street Hotel, and we thought this was just the perfect daytime look. The main event was this midi Batsheva dress, paired with a Prada such bag and some white Christian Louboutin loafers, rather than a heel, to keep it comfy and less formal. For accessories, Erika wore a chunky gold bracelet, some gold framed sunnies, and an elegant diamond stud earring.
How to recreate the look…
- A Black Dress for any Occasion
- An Elegant, Sleek Loafer
- A Chic, Staple Black Bag
- A Timeless, Cool Pair of Sunnies
Look #2 – Alice + Olivia Spring 2023 Presentation
The next event Erika attended was the Alice + Olivia Spring 2023 Presentation. If you know anything about the brand Alice + Olivia, you know that they are known for creating sophisticated and chic pieces matched with bold patterns, colors and statement looks. This was such a fun look to create and we love how it turned out! For the base we went with a black crop top and a black sleek pant (duh!). We then paired this chic base with a beaded Aussie Brand Jacket, a flashy gold heel and accessorized with a gold mini bag & a gold choker necklace. Stunning.
How to recreate the look…
- A Statement Gold Heel
- A Fun, Going Out Gold Mini Bag
- A Versatile Black Crop Top
- A Bold Patterned Jacket
Look 3 – Badgley Mischka Spring 2023 Runway
Badgley Mischka is all about timeless glamour, and we had the perfect look in mind. This stunning and elegant dress is non other than Badgley Mischka. It was important that the rest of the accessories didn’t take away from this dress, so in addition, Erika paired it with a dainty Christian Louboutin heel, a few gold pieces, a bracelet and hairpiece, and a simple black leather Jeenaa bag. This look was a true timeless, elegant look, perfect for the occasion.
