Fashion Week descends upon Manhattan in February, in a flurry of stilettos, signature bags and often-dubious street style. We attend most of the shows, and we know that beyond the hype, there's a whole lot of grind and hard work for those covering the shows -- and planning them.

But most of all, Fashion Week is a state of mind, and a very visible reminder that warm weather and sunny days are almost here. So, without further ado, we bring you some of our favorite items to get through the winter slog.

Nothing detracts like stained teeth, so display that dazzling grin with a bit of help from Plaque HD toothpaste, which is a genius creation that makes your mouth feel like it just took a shower.

Rock a super-cool standout iPad case, for those front-row selfies. We love this one by CDG X Côte&Ciel from Dover Street Market.

Be gently fragrant with the new gender-neutral scent from Calvin Klein, CK2, which is fresh, light and understated.

Beat dry winter skin with Clark's Botanicals smoothing marine cream, which moisturizes and exfoliates and gives you a majorly-dewy glow.

Keep colds and germs at bay with Tammy Fender's divine hand wash. We're total fans of The Purist, along with basically the rest of her line.

Be like Anna Wintour and rock the perfect pair of sunnies, like these Max Pittion Politician 45.

Remember to always grin and bear it with this adorable Rose Aux Joues Blush Duo compact from Guerlain.

Combine style and comfort with super-cool kicks, like these LOEFFLER RANDALL Zora sneaker.

Tote all your invites and devices in this Kika New York postal backpack -- the quality and craftsmanship are perfection.

There's no feeling blue with this Butter London nail hue -- one of Pantone's colors of the year, natch.

Keep track of what goes down the runway -- the hits and misses -- with this fab Shinola journal. You can monogram it, too.

And if, like us, you're totally sick pasty winter skin, try this Armani Maestro bronzer, which will give you that summer glow, sans sun.
