Mind behind the We Wore What blog, Danielle Bernstein is a native New Yorker style blogger known for her effortlessly cool street style. So, keep on reading for the definitive guide to dressing like a true New York native this fall season.
Opt for leather jackets that will give you that street-chic edge.
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. Like Danielle, you may opt for a leather biker jacket that will go well with your classy outfits and minimalist look. Apart from black leather jackets, you may go for camel, khaki, olive green, beige, white, camel, and such to add some edge to your street style.
Neutral dressing head-to-toe never goes out of style.
Many colors come and go, but black will never go out of style, and New York natives are privy to this style secret. If you’re not a fan of all-black outfits, think of navy and gray that tie for second as chic year-round neutrals. Like Danielle, you may brighten up your black dress with a camel coat, or go monochromatic in white that still look effortlessly cool.
Don a pair of sneakers or boots to look effortlessly cool.
New Yorkers are known for donning their most comfy footwear like sneakers and boots over stiletto pumps. Like Danielle, channel your fall-inspired look with a brown suede dress teamed with suede tall boots, or look cozy with a pair of leather culottes and oversized sweater teamed with canvas sneakers perfect for the season. Though you may opt for flat mules and loafers, canvas sneakers and boots look more effortless and relaxed that can take you from day to night regardless of what outfit you’re wearing.
Complete your looks with an 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 as all that matters is that you look good wearing them. Like Danielle, you may opt for sunglasses with light tint shade so you can wear them even there’s no sun. Sunglasses can add some chic vibe to your New Yorker style while keeping everything effortlessly cool. Apart from all these tricks, remember that New York is all about attitude and you have to wear your fall outfits with confidence. This way, the New York pavement will be your catwalk, and your clothes speak for themselves.
