New York Fashion Week always feels like the first day of school. You’re pumped to see all of your friends and can’t wait to show off all of your new clothes. Remember back when you used to slowly saunter to the front of the room to sharpen your pencil at the classroom sharpener as a means for your classmates to catch a glimpse of your hot outfit. Now we parade up and down the street in hopes of having our photo taken while rushing from show to show.

Fashion week during February is always about layering. It’s not enough to just top a coat over your shirt. In New York, this week, the weather didn’t know if it wanted to be somewhat warm or dangerously cold. You had to be able to adapt to power through all of the volatile temp changes. You needed to add a sweater, a knit vest, and maybe another topper under your outerwear.

Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite layered lewks.

And remember, if you think your fit for the week is fiyah, tag @VQVaughns on IG every Wednesday and include the hashtag #EBONYfashion to be considered for inclusion in the next edition of EBONY’s #theBlockIsHot.
