These Are The 15 Items We Are Packing For Fashion Week

From one runway show to the next, here's the selection that's getting us through all of fashion week looking our absolute best.

It’s that time of the year again, when the who’s who of the fashion industry will descend upon the four fashion capitals of the world to partake in a bi-annual ritual otherwise known as fashion week. The month-long event has become a spectacle on its own, with editors, influencers and everyone else in-between moving from one city to the next like migrating packs in search of the latest trends that’ll shape fashion’s landscape for the next six months. The days are long and the nights are even longer, so it pays to arm oneself with a wardrobe that works equally hard on one’s behalf. From newfangled wardrobe classics to the most fashion-forward accessories, Female rounds up 15 of the coolest pieces we’re adding to our fashion week packing list.

Wool jacket, price available in-store, Acne
Not all jackets are made the same, and this slick version by Acne is proof of that. Cut for a boxier fit and fastens to the side, it is a contemporary spin on a time-honoured style. Jewel earrings, $800, Balenciaga
A pair of heart-shaped earrings adds a retro touch to any ensemble. Leather pouch, $3,450, Bottega Veneta
Thanks to its classy shape and fuss-free design, Bottega Veneta’s The Pouch is undeniably fashion’s Bag-of-the-Moment. It’s also great for carting around fashion week essentials, such as show invites and a portable charger—or two. Acetate sunglasses, price available in-store, Burberry
At fashion week, a pair of sunglasses is necessary when you want to 1) shield your eyes from the flashlights going all around you 2) hide tired and puffy eyes from all those late nights filing stories 3) avoid making eye contact and small talk with the people around you.   Gold-plated necklace, $790, Celine
Nothing beats gold accents on an ensemble. The deal is made even sweeter with the subtle luminescence of Mother of Pearl, as seen on this refined necklace by Celine. Wool coat, price available in-store, Cos
A lightweight coat is a lifesaver on nights when it gets unexpectedly chilly in Paris. Patent leather bucket hat, price available in-store, Dior
The bucket hat’s revival shows no signs of stopping, and Dior’s latest interpretation only cements its appeal. Leather belt bag, price available in-store, Fendi
Wear it as a belt. Use it as a bag. The versatility of this accessory makes it a worthy fashion week investment. Feather hairband, price available in-store, Loewe
A dramatic feathered hairband is sure to turn heads. We’re ready for our close-up. Tencel bodysuit,$90, www.net-a-porter.com
Consider a bodysuit in lieu of a t-shirt—it layers just as well as the wardrobe staple and injects a sleekness to the look.   Cotton pants, $1,985, www.net-a-porter.com
Part heritage, part utilitarian, this wide-legged pants will go well with just about everything, from ruffled poet blouses to oversized denim shirts. Embroidered bag, $2,180, Prada
Not your typical wallflower? Miuccia Prada showed there are other ways one can wear florals when she let three-dimensional rosettes bloom on a tote bag. Leather heels, $1,090, Saint Laurent
We can’t stress enough the importance of making smart footwear choices come fashion week. Sure, sensible sneakers lets us cover lots of ground in comfort (and trust us, there’s plenty to cover), but a pair of stilettos will come in handy for swanky galas and parties. Denim skirt, price available in-store, Sandro
A studded denim skirt is the perfect companion for shopping runs in between runway shows and showroom appointments.
