Our days before the onslaught of runway shows and nonstop street style are numbered — Fashion Week is almost here. To prepare accordingly, we've outfitted our essential Fashion Week looks — with a little twist. As fashion editors, it's our job to seek out the trends at all price points, so we're giving you our most style-conscious ensembles (the kind made for running around Lincoln Center) two ways. With our respective price points, associate editor Chi Chau and I set out to shop our perfect NYFW outfit. In my wallet? Just $199. In Chi's? $1,000. Click on to see how we each spent our budget.
