What to Wear to Fashion Shows

This is the all important question on everyone's mind who will attend a fashion show, especially a fashion week newbie like me. The easy answer is, it depends. It depended whether you'll be photographing the event or not.
For photographing shows and presentations, I recommend that you wear super comfy clothes that look chic as well. Stretchy pants like black spandex or matte leggings, very stretchy skinny jeans, or ponte (thick legging-like) pants, which stretch and look more chic than leggings. Next, a comfortable pair of shoes that are flexible and bend with your foot since at some point you're likely to be crouching and/or kneeling. Now, onto the top. During fashion week in September, it will still be hot so wear blouses and tunics that are comfortable, light and airy. Add a necklace, either simple or statement but make sure it's not dangly. Otherwise, it could get caught in your camera or anyone else's camera if you get really close to them to get your shot. If you like bracelets wear ones that aren't jingly and annoying. Either stretchy ones that are a bit snug or cuffs.
If you're not photographing the show extensively or can get good photos from your seat you can wear whatever you want! Have fun with your ensembles.
Lastly, I'll tell you a little "I shouldn't have worn that" story from my first show at Degen. I wore heels, enough said, hahaha! I'm not a heels girl AT ALL but I wanted my outfit to look cute so I wore the heels, but never again! All I can say is that now I'm going to be in search of a couple pairs of pretty sturdy flats.
What are your go-to outfits for both photographing shows and just watching them? Let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading, take care.
