New York Fashion Week is a mixed bag when it comes to the fashions that attendees opt to wear, but odds are, if you see someone in an evening gown or in an outlandish/borderline clownish getup, they're not an editor. Editors tend to opt for simple, but stylish, looks that focus on accessories like handbags and jewelry (remember, most editors are not chauffeured around but take subways between shows!). That said, with the abundance of street style photographers, it's no secret that there's some degree of dressing up for the cameras. Here's a look at NYFW sartorial essentials.
