5 Fashion Week must-haves

New York Fashion Week is in full swing and the SK Team is in the city, catching all the shows to bring you the latest styling news. If you’re attending as well, here’s our list of the top five things you’ll need to survive the nonstop action.

Auidence at Fashion Week

If you’ve ever been to New York Fashion Week, then you know how chaotic it can be. From early morning shows to late night wrap parties, it’s all fashion all day/night. To make it through the crazy week with your sanity intact, here are the top five things we recommend you have on hand at all times.

Sanuk sandalsComfortable shoes

This season’s trendiest metallic-toe pumps may look fabulous, but after hours of running the streets of NYC, your toesies are going to need a break. Give them the rest they need in between events with a pair a flip flops, kept in your carry-all for those rare moments you get to rest.

We recommend these heavenly sandals from Sanuk. They are made from actual yoga mat material. It doesn’t get more peaceful than that.

Foot Petals insolesInsoles

You definitely can’t be sporting yoga flops all week, but for those times when you have to wear a pair of killer shoes, be sure to bring some of these with you to ease the pain.

We recommend Foot Petals. They have a variety of shapes and sizes for every intricate shoe design.

stella + dot necklaceA bold statement necklace

“Having nothing to wear” just isn’t going to fly here at Fashion Week. For those times you find yourself in a rut, spice up your outfit with a show stopping necklace. One of these babies will transform your simple ensemble in a flash.

We recommend one of stella + dot’s eye catching pieces.

bareMinerals Ready SPF 20 Foundation.Smudge-proof makeup

Summer is still going strong here in the Big Apple with temps in the low 80s. Make sure your makeup stays in place while you’re moving around all day with a great foundation/powder blend.

We recommend bareMinerals Ready SPF 20 Foundation. This will keep you looking flawless all day while protecting your skin from the sun.

Marvelous Moxie in Party StarterA great lip gloss

With all the air kissing, you’re going to need a touch-up by lunchtime. Keep your pout looking perfect by having a gorgeous, goes-with-anything gloss on hand.

We recommend Marvelous Moxie in Party Starter, guaranteed to get the good times rolling.


As an added bonus, keep this on your hotel nightstand: bareMinerals Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener. Fake a wide-eyed, bushy-tailed look after late nights at the after-parties with this life-saving stick.
