In this freezing weather, it's easy to see why so many fashionistas are flocking to fur. From coats and jackets to vests and hats, you probably won't be able to walk a block without seeing someone sporting this look. New York & Company has great deals on faux-fur jackets and vests while Scoop NYC offers plenty of warmth with their Long Shearlnig Vest that hits just above the knee. If you loved the 90's fur-lined denim jacket look, then you sure won't be disappointed this Fashion week as the trend has been popping up all over NYC.

With many rushing to get to the fashion shows all across the city, it's practical to wear a pair of botties with a thicker heel. So far, we've seen a lot of juxtaposition with this trend thanks to a variety of different colored and textured heels ranging from glittery metallics to neon patent leathers. The Kristina Suede Metallic Heeled Boots from French Collection in grey have a sleek almond toe, ankle strap, and metallic block heel, making it a go-to shoe for the week. Make a statement in Zara's Tricolor Booties, which make your feet look like works of art.
