Before our EIC Rachel Zoe jetted out of town, we photographed 7 of the absurdly awesome outfits she put together to wear throughout the beautiful madness that is New York Fashion Week. Of course the ensembles hit every note: They’re sophisticated, beautiful, edgy and—above all—glamorous. We will reveal them one at a time over the next week, and at the same time help you infuse some of her impossibly cool style into your own wardrobe. Let the fashion games begin!
Day 4: Weekend-Chic Ensemble
NYFW doesn't take a break on the weekend—the shows run every hour, on the hour, like clockwork. As she races around town, Rachel Zoe will be channeling effortless weekend style in this fabulous combo: Burberry monogrammed blanket poncho, vintage Chanel necklace, Ferragamo sunglasses, The Row tote and Alaia ankle booties.
Get The Look: Bundle Up In A Blanket Coat
Blanket coats and ponchos add a dose of instant bohemian glam to any weekend look. Whether your Sunday takes you to brunch, a movie or NYFW, take a cue from RZ and pair your flowy poncho with heeled boots and oversized sunnies. Cool, cozy and confident.

Now this is how a fashion girl tackles the cold! RZ is beautifully prepared for a blizzard with this luxe (not to mention warm) ensemble: Burberry wool coat, one-of-a-kind Christian Dior bag, Christian Louboutin platform heels, Tom Ford sunglasses and vintage pom-pom hat.
Get The Look: Wear Eccentric Pieces Together
When the weather is bleak, eccentric fashion can be the key to brightening the day and your mood. Let your jacket and accessories become the focal point of your outfit by experimenting with prints and bold colors.

Day 2: Cozy-Chic Ensemble
Dinner by the fireplace at The Waverly Inn requires something chic and cozy: This yummy look checks those boxes and more thanks to an Isabel Marant shearling jacket, Brian Atwood platform booties, a tote bag from The Row, a vintage Versace necklace, Tom Ford sunglasses and a Marc Jacobs cashmere scarf. Now that's a hot date!
Get The Look: Double Up On Playful Faux Fur
Pick a color that suits you for a gorgeous monochromatic look, and then layer a faux-fur vest over a sweater in the same shade. Go for an après ski-meets-Manhattan vibe by pairing bold accessories with playful fur-accented ankle booties. The resulting adorable outfit practically screams for hot toddies and fireside cuddling.

Day 1: Vintage-Chanel Ensemble
This fab outfit epitomizes Rachel Zoe chic: a vintage Chanel belted jacket, vintage Chanel cuff, Casadei patent-leather platform heels, Thierry Lasry sunglasses and a Balenciaga bag. We like to call that a fashion bing, bang, boom.
Get The Look: Statement Jacket + Polished Accessories
Just because you don't own a Chanel jacket doesn't mean you can't put together a similarly elegant ladylike ensemble. Steal Rachel's impeccable style by pairing a statement jacket with polished accessories for a put-together, classic look.
