Today marks the first day of New York Fashion Week, so we put together a few essentials to get you through the week, MILLY-style: 

1. A MILLY LBD for post-show drinks and fashion parties.
2. A statement cocktail coat. Who doesn’t want to make a bold entrance?
3. A Juice Press “Ginger Fireball.” Definitely no time to get sick and this will ward off any oncoming cold…
4. The MILLY Watersnake Satchel to fit all of the 5,943 things you can’t live without during a day full of shows.  
5. A colorful MILLY iPhone case. No time to lose searching through your bag for your phone.  
6. Headphones. Need to zone out for a few minutes? Listen to some of Michelle’s favorite tunes, like Inner City’s “Big Fun” or “Good Life”. 
6. A bag of Ruffles chips (specifically cheddar cheese and sour cream). There’s no better way to fulfill your salt craving. 
7. Sour Patch Kids. Let’s be honest - after a bag of salty chips, you’ll obviously need some sugar. 
Don’t forget to watch the livestream of the MILLY Fashion Show this coming Monday, February 10th at 2 pm. 
Also, be sure to check out our favorite spots to head after a day of fashion shows and don’t miss out on our show-stopping looks to rock during NYFW.

If you’ve ever played Starships or Super Bass on repeat (come on, don’t lie…) then you’ll understand why we were incredibly excited to see the fabulous Nicki Minaj rocking a MILLY SS ‘14 bodysuit on the February cover of ESPN Magazine. Even better, she’s featured on the cover with basketball superstar, Kobe Bryant. 
Nicki Minaj, who is known for her one-of-a-kind fashion style, pairs the MILLY bodysuit with a feminine pleated skirt and killer platforms. For MILLY SS ‘14, Michelle drew inspiration from perforated facades found in contemporary Japanese architecture. The custom-made prints, one of which Nicki is wearing on the ESPN cover, were based on Japanese and Hawaiian florals.

Whether you’re spending New Year’s on the beach or at a ski resort, we have a standout look for every occasion.
1. If you’re in Miami (or any warm weather location) for New Year’s, you need the MILLY Cutout Dress. Cutout details make this LBD sexy, and a fitted silhouette will flatter every body type. Add a pop of color to this getup and you’ll be set for a night in South Beach.
2. Going to a black tie event? You’re in luck. Our Racer Party Dress, made of Cheetah Lurex Lace, is bound to make a statement. A floor length skirt and racer back create a tailored and bold look.
3. For those headed to a hotel rooftop bash…sporting sequins is a must. Our Sleeve Cocktail Dress, crafted in black and gold stretch sequins, features a subtly sexy scoop back. You’re bound to catch the attention of your New Year’s kiss in this number.
4. If you prefer a low-key night… go with the MILLY Fly Away Rhinestone Tank and Leather Leggings. Rhinestone details enhance this black tank top and leather leggings make this outfit edgy. Good friends, great food, necessary New Year’s drinks and a favorite outfit = the perfect night.
5. At a ski resort for the holidays? A statement coat better make it into your suitcase. The MILLY Cocktail Coat is the ultimate topper to any winter look- layer it over your favorite dress and pair it with a bold bag for a glam New Year’s outfit. If you’re prepping for a cold night, you might as well throw in our Sermoneta for MILLY Studded Gloves. Talk about rocker chic done right.

Reese’s Major MILLY Moment!
Love Reese Witherspoon? So do we. The actress was recently spotted rocking the MILLY Neon Fair Isle Sweater while out and about in Santa Monica and we can’t get enough of her look. Paired with simple blue jeans and black booties, she knows how to sport an easy cool outfit. The neon accents and Fair Isle stitch add just the right amount of color pop and detail, making this sweater a go-to pick for day-to-night dressing. Plus, it’s a perfect gift for the holidays!

The fashion backpack is back from the ’90s….[[MORE]] and a major trend that is forecasted to continue on for the next few seasons. Be the first to get in on the trend, just in time for holiday travel. We like to think of it as cool girl’s answer to the tote bag. Not only does it fit everything you could possibly need, but it has extra large custom zippers, bolt hardware and an easy access pocket to hold your smartphone and keys.
