For those who follow fashion it’s the most wonderful time of the year. It’s Fashion Week but that’s really a misnomer. It used to be twice a year when the fashion set flocked to various destinations around the world to see what’s upcoming in the world of fashion.


Well although, I’m not a fashion world traveler…yet, I still come to New York City several times a year to experience New York Fashion Week and now that menswear has been separated from women’s, these trips have become more frequent.


For the A/W 2016 season I’ve opted only to attend New York Fashion Week Men’s however that doesn’t mean that my schedule is any less hectic but I enjoy every minute of it. One of my guilty pleasures is planning what I’m going to wear as I hit the different events throughout the week.

For Day 1, I liked the idea of bright colors so I though this lavender wool blazer would be the perfect choice. Who knows maybe I’d pop up on some street style best dressed list! In keeping it light, I thought I’d be daring and pair the blazer with cram color pants. This would keep the look light. Since my blazer and jacket were solid I added pattern with my shirt and tie. It was a great look to kick off the start of New York Fashion Week Men’s.
