How to Effectively Dress Like a New Yorker


Everyone has their own idea of what New York is like. Mine came from Gossip Girl reruns, which portrayed NYC as a city where everyone wears fabulous clothes. To my surprise, the show was pretty accurate in that respect. As an Ohio native, moving to the Big Apple was a huge transition, and looking the part was even harder. New Yorkers ooze effortless style, leaving tourists feeling rather basic. But no need to worry: here's our definitive guide to dressing like a true New York native.



LEATHER JACKETS ALL YEAR LONG

Whether you're uptown or downtown, a leather jacket is never out of place. It gives your outfit a certain edge that sets you apart but also keeps you on-trend with fellow New Yorkers.




BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK

Many colors come and go, but black will never go out of style, and New York natives are privy to this style secret. You can never lose while wearing this winning color. Navy and gray tie for second as chic year-round neutrals.




THE STATEMENT SHOES

If you don't remember anything else, your shoes matter the most—and no, I'm not talking about comfort. Beauty is pain, and if it means you have to truck across town in high heels, then so be it. If you're smart about it, you'll stow away equally-fashionable flats for the walk to the subway.



THE "IT" BAG

One thing you will never catch a New York woman without is her handbag. It's a necessary investment that you can't skimp on. Whether it's a classic Chanel 2.55 or a cute tote from Topshop, it's not about the price, but your commitment to the bag.


ACCESSORIES

You want your outfit to speak for itself, not be outshined by accessories. Delicate silver or gold jewelry adds the perfect amount of flair to any outfit.


BEAUTY IS KEY

If one thing's for sure, New York women are always well-manicured. From their perfectly coiffed hair to pedicured toes, everything is always in place.


ICONIC EYEWEAR

Rain or shine or day or night, stylish eyewear is essential to completing your New York look. It doesn't matter if you need the sunglasses—all that matters is that you look good wearing them.


CONFIDENCE

New York is all about attitude. You have to wear your outfit with confidence. The New York pavement is your catwalk, so let your clothes speak for themselves.
