What to Wear When Visiting NYC: Spring 2011 Edition

March 8th, 2011

What to Wear:  Spring 2011

When the clocks change this weekend, the ladies at Shop Gotham know how we’ll spend our extra hour of daylight:  shopping!  As temperatures rise and the sun peeps out, the urge to dress in pastels and soft cotton overwhelms even the most hardened New Yorkers.  This spring we’re trading in our signature black for soft whites, neutral tones and… citrus orange?   Read on for tips on what to wear in New York this season..

1.  Platform Shoes

Inspired by Lady Gaga’s over-the-top footwear, heels this season are drag-queen high platforms.  We’re in love with these nude pumps by Steve Madden with a cute slingback:  another hot trend this season.  And these peep-toe slingbacks by Madewell  put a twist on the classic Oxford.  You can’t go wrong with either of these picks!

2.  White Jeans

Pair your cute platform heels with a stylish pair of white jeans.  This trend has re-emerged hotter than ever after the popularity of white jeans last summer.  This season they’re as blindingly white as possible and come in a variety of cuts and sizes, from these white cotton cropped trousers from the +J line at Uniqlo to this funky take on classic cargo pants by Alice and Olivia:


3.  Tailored Blazer

But for those with the guts to wear it, orange is the hot new shade this season, as evidenced by the orange blazers on socialite Olivia Palermo and stylist Rachel Bilson.  If you dare, pick up this gorgeous orange blazer by Max Mara.

For the young hipster traveler, this bookish, smart blazer by Brooklyn Industries dresses up or down and is the ideal travel accessory.  It doesn’t wrinkle, and be thrown on when the temperature fluctuates, which in New York City is every five minutes.  Purchase it at 15% off on your next Shop Gotham Soho tour!

4.  Long Bohemian Dresses

This sienna-colored sleeveless dress from T by Alexander Wang is comfortable, stylish, and short enough to allow you to show off your heels.  Shop Gotham is uber-excited about the opening of Wang’s new boutique, which figures conveniently into our Soho/Nolita Chic Boutiques tour route.

Note the predominance of neutral tones this season.  And it would look great styled with a fitted blazer! Too been there, done that for you?.. visit: www.shopgotham.com for mens and women’s New York City shopping tours to find these and even more suitable and fabulous spring apparel!
