Whether you’re getting photographed on the front row or making your way from shoe to show, we have the best designer dresses to wear in New York. Just like the strapless cutwork mini dress by Geisha Designs. This stunning dress looks just as gorgeous on its own as it does with knitwear. So, it’s as perfect for shows inside as it is with layers for beating the NY chill. Pair yours with neutral knitwear and the Lakita suede knee boots by Isabel Marant. Then, throw all of your fashion week essentials in the large hop suede shoulder bag by Bottega Veneta.

Meanwhile, for a dress that pairs perfectly with ankle boots, try the Jude mini dress by Love Shack Fancy. Nailing the millennial pink trend taking over 2024, this adorable ruffle detail dress will make a lasting impression. Style your with leather accessories to add an edgy-chic touch. We highly recommend the Giorgia suede ankle boots by Amina Muaddi and the Mini Gg Marmont leather shoulder bag by Gucci.
