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.

NYC in April, What To Do, What to Pack, Idea for Sensational Group Tour

March 18th, 2018
Lets Talk Packing for April in NYC
Sunny and warm-er: temps typically in 50’s. We are a casual but stylish city, but Casual means something different for all. As you have heard, black, grey and other neutrals are Always the reigning choice here, so pack these in lighter fabrics:
Leather Jacket, Poncho or Cape, 
tasteful “well fitting” jeans, light Sweaters, a Nice top for dinner, low boots and your “stylish sneakers”(Converse will do).
Theater & Dinner:
The days of “dressing” for theater are bygone. DO look smart & stylish. Business casual is a good benchmark, Tasteful jeans (blue or black) (cullottes – better!) are fine if paired with a nice top, jacket and heels. A simple fitted, shirt dress or midi skirt 
paired with your leather jacket is always chic. All that said, if you have a new fabulous outfit, by all means, crack it out!

Shopping, Museums, Touring
Comfort is essential, but leave your old baggy jeans home.  Cropped pants with flats or cute sneakers,  a jacket and light wool scarf and will leave you comfortable and blending in like a native.
