These photos were taken before the Express kick-off party by my talented new friend, Amanda Lin! I wanted to wear this tuxedo detail romper from Topshop, so I layered a long-sleeve underneath to make it appropriate for NYC weather. On my shoulder is Rebecca Minkoff’s version of the bucket bag – one of my favorite new trends this season.
And, big surprise, I finished the look with my trustee over-the-knee boots. Fun fact: I also wore them last year at TVFU. These boots are sexy in a classy, cool-girl way. That rare balance gives them lasting power. But, a word of caution, this trend requires a bit of splurging. Since there is so much boot going on, faux leather versions can end up looking very cheap. Shoes can make or break an outfit, so they should be where you splurge.More details from my weekend at Teen Vogue’s headquarters here.
