New Yorkers know the secret to winter is chic comfort. Its been cold and drab, a perfect fitting for the black and grey apparel featured this year. All one sees is coats, hats and boots, so it doesn’t matter much what lies beneath if you plan on mostly walking the city.
Although snow has already come and gone (and likely to come again), gals should pack both rubber soled and chic boots. Assuming you will stop for a great meal, cocktail or some lengthy indoor shopping, leather or suede boots high in length, low in heel are the chicest and most practical choice. Big bubble-like coats are never in style here. Better to bring a more tailored option and layer up beneath. Dresses with leggings and bold jewelry? Sure, if you are in your 20’s and going “clubbing?. For everyone else, better to leave them home and opt instead for well-fitting jeans and current sweaters or chic longish tops with a peel-away cardigan. Jeans are appropriate for almost anything you do in NYC (perhaps not in Le Cirque or a job interview)
