What to WEAR in NYC (New York City) – EARLY- MID SEPT

August 25th, 2018

General Tips: Casual Chic is the New York Style. People no longer dress for the theater or museums, although looking smart is always in style. All black is common for a New Yorker,  but you need not comply with this.

WHAT TO WEAR:

YES – do bring your white jeans and comfortably wear them until mid September. Although its post Labor Day, the rules have changed and the temps can still be in the low 80’s.

Great outfit for warm September day in new york city

 

DO

  • Pair your white, blue or black jeans with a non- white short sleeve top or off the shoulder to for the daytime shopping, lunching, meandering.
  • For dinner and/or theater, opt for a stylish top with a  light-weight jacket (jean, cloth, light leather, blazer.)  A simple dress with a light leather jacket is always a winner.
  • Feet: Post Labor Day, you may want to leave your very casual sandals and flop flops home. However, open toe boots, closed flats, closed low boots(booties) and cool sneakers are definitely “right” for this season.

NO NO’s:

  •  Stay away from white on white outfits.
  • Leave your summer florals home
  • No need for heavy wool sweaters
  • Do NOT wear fur trimmed or sequin items.
  • Do NOT bring a cocktail dress for dinner out , unless you are invited to a legitimate cocktail party which calls for this.

Spring Trends to Shop

February 9th, 2015

Good news to report regarding Spring, sunshine and warm weather- the groundhog spotted his shadow. Predicative of early onset Spring and an end in sight for snow, rain (pure gloom) and cold, which we couldn’t be more grateful for! What we are really looking forward to, however, is new Spring 2015 fashion and trends. Here are a few of our favorite Spring trends to incorporate while shopping and when packing for your visit to NYC in the upcoming months:

  • Sporty Minimalism

  • Fringe and Bohemian


  • High Necklines and Statement Earrings

  • Gingham and “Blooming” Prints

  • 1970’s Nostalgia

  • Exposed Shoulders

What to wear when visiting NYC this January

January 14th, 2015
If you are visiting NYC this month and are wondering what to pack-keep it simple! Trends this winter are easy to wear and simple to pair together, lot’s of solid basic colors and loose silhouettes. Our outfit “go to’s” for spot on chic city fashion that is easy to wear in the city, listed from head to toe:

  • Hats are huge this winter! Whether you prefer a long black beanie, colorful knit hat with a fur pompom (our personal fav), extravagant fur aviator, fedora, felt floppy, etc-this trend will keep you just as cozy as it will chic.
  • Sunglasses-we promise, you will want to shield your precious eyeballs from the whipping winds of NYC.
  • Long, camel colored coat styles. Mirroring a slight “bathrobe effect” coats are oversized and loose hanging.
  • Sweaters are either cropped or long in styles, such as cape styles or old school “sweater dress” looks (just make sure the sweater is not form fitting if it is on the longer side-longer sweaters require movement of ease: slits, zippers, elbow holes, etc!) Soft cashmere & wool blends will be sure to keep you warm and fashionable!
  • Cropped denim-whether the bottoms are rolled or slim fitting and showing a little bit of ankle-these are a must! Slightly high waist (just under belly button) are in; in either leather black, denim black, light faded blue, dark wash or ox blood colors! Pull out your 90’s denim, it’s perfect.
  • With freezing weather on the docket, and the expectation that you must walk everywhere in the city, a solid comfortable boot is a must! Knee, over the knee, calf, ankle-any of the above are a stylish addition to top off your look. Skip the snow boots, we’ve only had 2 snow storms so far, both of which turned to rain and washed away within 24 hours.

Black Friday: What to Pack

November 24th, 2014


Coming to the city this weekend? Trying to plan your outfits but don’t know where to begin? We agree, the weather has been a bit nutty, but by Wednesday temperatures will drop again, drastically, so plan to dress warm! Snow showers are expected for Thanksgiving Day, but if you’ve ever visited New York during winter time, you know the snow never sticks!

You might as well skip the snow boots this weekend and save the room in your suitcase.


Dress in style for your visit to NYC for Thanksgiving weekend and Black Friday. Oversized bathrobe inspired wool jackets, chunky knits, everything GREY, over the knee boots, a wide brim fedora, retro shades..the list goes on and on. These key pieces are in right now and if you can incorporate one or 2 of them into your outfits you will surely fit the part of chic New Yorker this weekend!

Fashion Tip for the first week of September: Add a little pop of color into your wardrobe this fall with a statement handbag! It’s an easy way to spice up an ensemble without having to go overboard on your budget. The best part about a statement accessory-it can be worn with multiple outfits as the focus piece (while your neutral outfit plays the easy role of backdrop).

The sneak peek below is from a partner handbag designers photo shoot, Fall 2014:
