Student Group Shopping Tours are so much fun!

November 25th, 2013
A custom shopping program took place this past Saturday in Soho. The Student Group Tour consisted of 500 students from over the world. This 4 hour tour commenced in the West Village, the historical NYC hub for music and home to the rock/folk movement of the 60’s and 70’s. Our students learned about historical landmarks, cast iron architecture, historical music venues, and major musicians and artists of that time. This tour also included a meet and greet with fashion and jewelry designers, exclusive shopping discounts at our partner stores in SoHo, as well as the exploration of the beautiful and unique Soho/Nolita neighborhoods.
If you are looking for something fun and educational to do for your students visiting NYC, let us customize a shopping tour for your student group! Rest assured, you will enjoy it too!

What to wear when visiting NYC this fall

November 1st, 2013

The weather recently has been a bit wild, ranging from sunny and warm afternoons to chilly windy nights. Our suggestion on dreassing for NYC this fall-wear layers! Not only is layering your outfit a fashion statement, but it allows you flexibility throughout the day and into the evening as the weather changes. Key pieces to incorporate this fall:

  • Hats- Wide rimmed, floppy, colorful, there are so many styles (making this trend work for a wide variety of face shapes accross the board). Hats are “so in” right now, fun to wear, and an easy on/off as weather permits! Try these styles- cloche, bowler, beanie, fedora, beret.
  • Scarves- Offer a little protection to your neck, feel cozy, and look chic! Cashmere, knit, wraps, knotted, tied, infinity…the choices go on and on! Always a statement piece and easy to wear.
  • Cashmere blend socks- Not only are they super warm, comfortable, and able to fit inside your favorite boots- your toes will appreciate the added comfort with all the walking you will be doing in the city.
  • Leather jacket-  The undying NYC trend. Fitted, moto, cropped, embellished- whichever way to want to wear it, these jackets are slimming AND warm.
  • Vests/Capes- These styles have resurfaced from fashion history and are chic when worn correctly! Keep it simple-when using these pieces as your top layer, stick with solid greys, blacks and camel. As for the adventurous, try these fun outerwear trends: leather trim, color fur, herringbone, houndstooth, pinstripes, and Prince of Wales checks. Hoods and high necklines are also ways to ward off the NYC wind.
  • You can find these items on a Shop Gotham shopping tour at discounted prices!
