There are two things that I look forward to every year and that is summer and fashion week. Attending the shows and seeing the collections live on the runway is always so much fun…plus it’s always great to get inspired by the outfits of the attendees and models on the runway. If your looking to step up your street style game for your next fashion week attendance, click through to read a few tips as well as my recap on a few of my favorites from Vancouver Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2016.

How to Dress for Fashion Week
1. Wear comfortable shoes. I can’t stress this enough because sometimes you don’t get a seat and nothing is worse than trying to walk with blisters. If you want to wear heels, I’d suggest a wedge short heel otherwise you can never go wrong with converse sneakers.
2. Add a bit of color. I’m totally a neutral person when it comes to fashion and if you want to stand out, add a pop of color with a colorful shoe, bag or jacket.
3. Stay true to your style. There is no right or wrong when it comes to dressing for fashion week – stay true to yourself and your style. If edgy fashion is your thing, stick to it! If girly pink is your go to then go with it! Fashion is all about expression and creativity and showcasing your personality.
A few of my favorite designer’s from this season at VFW are Connally McDougall, Ana Luisa Barros, Green Embassy and Brunette Showroom. I loved the fun head pieces to the 70s inspired vibes looks from Connally McDougall’s collection. Ana Luisa Barros collection was one of my favorites for evening wear. I loved how Ana used different material and created a side layering effect with the fabric adding a Spanish vibe to the look in the picture above. The brunette showroom collection was a fun hit with sweaters with writing on it such as “fries before guys” to the 70s inspired fringe jacket!
