    February in NYC is about much more than just Valentines, it's about New York Fashion Week - and it's just around the corner. With a packed schedule of shows and parties, it can be tough to keep your cool, especially when temps dip below freezing. Nobody understands this predicament better than stylist, Natalie Decleve who's created four runway ready looks to get you through the week.

    Pop Princess

    A pop of neon looks so "now" when paired with a chic jumpsuit (Halston Heritage, $635) and grey PS1 bag (Proenza Schouler, $1,595). Layer up with a cropped cardigan (L'Wren Scott $455 $182) and furry vest (Dorthyperkins, $52, $47) during the day, then ditch the cardi when you're ready to party. Chandelier earrings (Adora, $120) are back in a big way, but reserve these for post-show celebrations when you're ready to kick it up a notch. The high waist on this jumpsuit will accent a little middle when cinched with an attention grabbing belt, (Burberry Prorsum, $495),  and the wide leg will make you appear taller. Of course the sky high wedges (Acne Hydro, $440) won't hurt either. Ring: (Elizabeth Showers, $3,245)

    Black, White, and Red All Over:

    Getting antsy for winter to end? Lighten up with a white lace minidress (TFNC Lace Scoop back dress, $68 $21) and messy pearls (Asymmetric Pearls, BG $435). A bold and chunky bootie (Mary Ellen, $475) brings contrast to the ladylike style - making it fashion forward. Plus the platform will keep you high above the snow drifts! To further keep the look weather appropriate, a leather and shearing jacket (Wrecked $2,230) will do the trick, then, layer a pair of ribbed thigh-highs (Hansel From Basel $30 $21) on top of basic black tights. This is NYC after all, and with Bloomberg declaring "weather emergencies" every other day, it's best to let the "emergencies" stay where they belong; out of fashion. Bag: (Givenchy Nightingale $1,730). Bracelet: (Hermosa Stingray, DANNIJO $335)

    Boho Babe:

    Right on trend, this printed maxi dress (Lotta Stensson $470) has the distinctly 70's vibe that is so hot right now. Top off the look with a floppy hat, (ASOS $35), and one of this year's "it" bags - the Fendi peek-a-boo ($2,835) and prepare yourself for compliments... Not to mention, this tote has plenty of room for stashing show programs and fashion week essentials like a camera and a few extra snacks. For nighttime, check your shearling coat (Vanessa Bruno $1,375 $963)and felted floppy at the door, and head straight for the open bar. Shoes: (Gucci $1,190) Bracelet: (Lanvin Wide $1,080 $269) Bangles: (Adreena $100).

    Tip Taupe

    Effortless yet edgy, this look is the epitome of downtown cool. Leather pants not only look great, but they have the extra bonus of warmth - crucial for surviving February in NYC (Balmain motocross $5,190). The crossbody bag (Glitter Shoulder Bag $685) is a fresh take on Balenciaga's classic motorcycle style and the washed metallic leather is perfect for day or night. When the sun sets, just throw on a slick of black eyeliner, and take off the military parka (Michael Kors, $1,520) to reveal a party perfect embellished tank (All Saints $260). Boots: (Noemi $685). Ring: (ArmaniExchange $38). Eye Shadow: (Stila). Nails: (Bloomingdales).
