Summer Scarves, Boho Chic

June 4th, 2014

The weather is starting to warm up…finally!!…and summer is on it’s way. One of our favorite trends, year-round, but especially in the summer, are scarves. There are so many fabulous ways to rock a scarf besides around your neck. For an ultra chic boho look, try tying a bright scarf around your head and tying it underneath. Like this! Big shades also encouraged. It’s an effortless look and when used as a hair wrap you don’t even have to do your hair that morning.

A scarf can also double as a beach wrap in the summertime. Throw one in your tote and use as a cover up at the beach or wrap it around you when the sun sets. Summer scarf fabrics that work best are: silk, linen, cotton or a very thin cashmere. Try accenting bright prints over neutral tops-keep it simple.

Although the summer temps tend to sky rocket during summer in the city, the nights can always get cool..and so can the air conditioners!! If you are coming to New York City to visit make sure to pack a summer scarf. It is small enough to throw in your bag and you never know when you will need it. If you do not already own this summer essential, purchase a few on one our weekly wholesale shopping programs!


One of the most popular showroom visits on the Garment Center tour is to a designer showroom which creates gorgeous custom dyed scarves and wraps. Not only do Shop Gotham Garment Center tours grant you access into the private world of designer fashion but they also offer the most remarkable deals on current fashion that exists in NYC.

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!
