Read on to discover the expertly-curated necessities for NYFW by Jenee’ Naylor.

bareMinerals SKINLONGEVITY Green Tea Herbal Eye Mask

I can apply these each morning to give myself a refreshed/awake look and feel. Perfect for this busy week when not getting a lot of sleep and you have early morning events to attend.

Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray

I love this hair spray. It keeps my hair intact but allows for flexibility and daily styling. It doesn’t leave any build-up or residue on hair and keeps it soft and touchable.

Portable Steamer

This is the perfect portable steamer; fits nicely in your suitcase. I usually steam my items before I pack them, but certain fabrics need to be touched up once we unpack, so I like to have this on hand.

Dove Lavender and Chamomile Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer

A MUST-HAVE. Applying hand sanitizer several times a day is a part of life, and I have extremely dry skin, so finding this product has been a game-changer. Throughout fashion week, you will meet new people, and it's nice to have this on hand to quickly apply with feeling like drying out your hands.

Prada Small Brushed-Leather Tote in Silver

The perfect bag to go from day to night. It doesn’t take up too much room in your carry-on. So versatile, it pairs perfectly with casual daytime when worn crossbody but also is the perfect evening bag with more glam looks.

UNIQLO Heattech Shirt & Heattech Leggings

These are very necessary for any fashion week happening in a colder climate. These are great to layer under styling outfits, so you don’t have to sacrifice the fashion week ensemble. There are so many options for tops and bottoms and in several colorways.

Statement Flat Boot

This is a great option when you need to give your feet a rest but still serve a look. They provide warmth and give your feet the rest they may need towards the end of fashion week. This is my go-to boot for daytime shows or when my feet can’t take another heel!
