Aimee of Song of Style wears faux fur and statement tees for Day 5 of NYFWAlthough it hasn’t been too cold this fashion week, it’s been so windy! On Day 5 I thought I was going to blow over! Even though I attended my first show of the day in a more feminine look, featuring a Zimmerman blouse and wide leg Proenza Shouler pants (similar here) (as well as a faux fur coat borrowed from mom – similar and affordable here), I made sure to wear my sturdiest Louis Vuitton boots (similar and affordable here) so I wouldn’t fall over! I always love mixing different styling elements in the same outfit, like this soft ruffled blouse with a huge chunky boot! My Song of Style x Gentle Monster US 101 sunnies in silver also brought out the beautiful colors of the Zimmerman blouse perfectly!

This fashion week, I’ve really been focused on how I can use the position I’m lucky enough to have to make a difference. This white bandana represents solidarity, inclusiveness, and unity, started by The Business of Fashion’s hashtag, #TiedTogether. I love that a huge outlet like BOF is using their platform to raise awareness and create a movement so you bet I’ll be sporting the white bandana look to the rest of my fashion week wardrobe! (Thanks Imran!)

Bryan and Tina thought it would be a great idea for us to incorporate the graphic tees into our looks at the same time. This is one of the things I love about my job. I am so passionate about social justice, and when something is wrong I always speak out. It gives me a lot of hope that so many other designers, influencers, and other figures in the fashion industry are using their power and influence to spread positivity and enact change!

For my third and final look of the day, I wanted to go with a monochromatic look! I always like mixing different colors, but with Valentine’s Day coming up I wanted to do an all-pink look from Oscar de la Renta. Monochromatic looks are so eye-catching, and aren’t boring as long as you’re mixing shapes and cuts. Because I was wearing super long pants (similar and affordable here and here) I wanted to pair them with a cropped top (similar and affordable here) and structured coat (similar here and affordable here). I also kept the styling simple with a single JW Anderson earring, my initial charm necklace from Chloe (similar and more affordable here) , and a Dior bag (similar here).

The first outfit is so gorgeous because of the velvet texture and the frills – it’s simple but gorgeous! The second look is also beautiful!

  7. The first look is so gorgeous, like the last one.
    But I love the most that you use your influence for spreading positive messages.
    These Tees are not beautiful in themselves, but the message makes them beautiful. I wish I could wear one, too.
    Thank you Aimee!

  8. You killed it as always with these looks, Aimee! I love your outerwear, especially that faux fur coat borrowed from your. mom, she has amazing taste! I also love the shirts you all wore, what a statement and I’m sure the media will soak it up, these are such perfect shots for the movement you support! I’m also swooning over the pink and red look, too! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and have a great weekend!

  9. Love the statements being made in this post. Fashion Week is globally covered by the media and I really appreciate your using this opportunity to stand for what is right in our tumultuous times. Not only are the t-shirts emblazoned with slogans that we all need to be paying attention to – but the fur is faux!

  16. I don’t know if I agree with the t. shirts … I agree with the sentiment but not the terminology. In an attempt to bring equality women are being elevated above men with this term, it is therefore hypocritical. Many may disagree but that’s my opinion. I also feel that as western women we are extremely prividged and powerful, we should use our rights to help those in other countries where there are very rights, even basic needs being restricted. All this does is come across political and a bandwagon statement. It only focuses on america’s women…. who are amongst the most powerful and leaders in this area… you want even more rights? More more more… greed greed greed….. use what you do have to relieve the thousands of young girl brides being married to old men, or the young girls used as sex slaves, or the girls who have no access to education in India. It’s hurts me to see females who wear designer clothes, with millions of followers, with access to pretty much everything that men can do complaining that they are not heard whilst poor young girls in foreign lands can not even get permission to go to school. Sorry for ranting but it really upsets me. Take this protest to countries where there is a issue …. what about Iran? Syria? Too much sacrifice to take your protest there? You see this is where we should appreciate our rights because woman can not even protest in these countries. Ps. I’m not American therefore this has nothing to do with your presidency debate. But you guys are very lucky even with Trump.

  17. Aimee,

    I absolutely loved Mommas faux fur coat! I know this year it was freezing with massive amounts of snow but that looked perfectly warm, while still being stylish. I think my favorite look overall was the pink one for Valentine’s day. It was effortless and chic.
