NYFW Day 1 Outfit

NYFW Day 1 Outfit

Add Elizabeth and James and feathers in the same collection and you have a recipe for the New York Fashion Week wardrobe.  Before my fashion shows began on Saturday, I wore this ensemble featuring stunning E&J James feather trimmed blazer for a night on the town in NYC.  Let’s just take a moment to stare in awe.

See the outfit and all of the fun details below!  Then head over to see what I wore for day 2 of NYFW here.

Blazer: Elizabeth and James (similar here & here) | Top: Forever 21 (similar) | Jeans: Jessica Simpson | Necklace: SLATE (find on Rocksbox and use the code CHICLITTLEHONEYXOXO for your first month of Rocksbox FREE!) | Bag: Henri Bendel | Shoes: Christian Louboutin | Ring: Tiffany & Co.


After doing hours upon hours of research as to what one wears to NYFW, I decided that this blazer was the perfect candidate for outfit number one.  The blazer brings together oversized menswear and feminine ostrich feathers to create a statement piece that is surprisingly versatile.

I chose to wear a lace camisole under the blazer for an easy, sultry on the town look.  I could easily slip on a v-neck tee, a graphic tee, a turtleneck, crop top, dress, skirt, or whatever suited my fancy under this blazer and it would work.

Pro tip: Find statement pieces like this one that can be worn with a variety of tops and bottoms.  The more outfits you can incorporate a statement piece into, the more it’s worth to you, no matter what the price tag says.  And trust me, with the price tag that was attached to this blazer, I need to be able to wear it with a lot of outfits!

The feathers are are what makes the outfit so I needed to keep my accessories minimal.  I looped the lariat style necklace around my neck once to give me the effect of a choker.
