Coordinate your beret with your trench coat.

A lot of people are scared to be too matchy-matchy when it comes to putting together an outfit, but this New Yorker pulled it off!

Matching the color of your coat to your hat is a perfect way to balance a look. Wearing the same color on different parts of the body allow it to stand out instead of turning into a potential sea of red. This New Yorker used a red beret and wool coat for her pops of color and neutralized the rest of the outfit with an all-black base. Also, try mixing textures like leather and velvet for even more contrast, as seen here.

Outfit Details:

  • Coat – Thrifted
  • Beret – Store on West 4th
  • Top – Thrifted
  • Pants – Thrifted
  • Fanny Pack – Store on Canal St.

Throw on your favorite fur vest for a Friday afternoon stroll down 5th Avenue.

Fur and faux fur is all the rage during the winter months in NYC. From coats to vests, New Yorkers are loving the fur trend and don’t seem to be giving it up anytime soon.

Whether you’re looking to dress to impress or keep it casual, a fur vest is a veristale piece that should be in everyone’s wardrobe. For an elegant look, try a full-length fur vest like this New Yorker. Layer with a cozy turtleneck, add some cute boots and you’re good to go. If the idea of wearing a heavy fur vest seems like too much effort, opt for a light-weight, faux fur vest. Pair it with a matching sweatsuit and casual sneakers. This look allows you to feel put together and comfortable at the same time.

Outfit Details:

  • Navy Vest – Yves Saint Laurent
  • Brown Vest – Loro Piana

The 1970’s called and they LOVE your pants.

This groovy New Yorker is rocking a head to toe vintage look with pieces dating back to the seventies. Bell bottoms are have been returning to the shelves of mainstream stores like Zara and H&M over the past year, but consider yourself lucky if you find an authentic pair.

If you’re down to try a retro style, bell bottoms are a great way to accentuate your curves. Tuck in a bright sweater or tie a vintage tee at the waist to maintain the hourglass illusion.  Make your outfit flow from top to bottom by layering with an oversized cape coat, as seen here. Don’t forget to wear a heeled bootie to elongate your legs and avoid being weighed down by the oversized coat.

  • Jeans – Thrift Shop Find, Circa 1970
  • Coat – Thrift Shop Find in Paris, Circa 1970
  • Sweater – Thrift Shop Find
  • Boots – Online from Unknown Store

UltraViolet – Pantone 2018 Color of the Year

This New Yorker is starting off the year right, sporting the hottest color in the fashion scene, UltraViolet.

Take your street style to the next level by playing around with colors seen recently at Men’s New York Fashion Week. A classic streetwear look of a hoodie and cuffed jeans, paired with a wool coat creates a solid base to add pops of color. At this point, you could add in some UltraViolet socks as seen here or even swap out the gray hat for a more colorful option. These are just a few subtle ways to play around with UltraViolet, but don’t be afraid to go bold!

Outfit Details:

  • Socks – J Crew
  • Coat – Rag & Bone
  • Hoodie – H&M

A cropped orange puffer, I could not resist!

After naming UltraViolet the 2018 Color of the year, Pantone included Oriole, a vibrant orange, as part of the year’s color scheme.

Wearing bright orange is a fun way to add some life to your outfit in the middle of an NYC winter. This New Yorker chose to sport the color with a trendy cropped puffer coat. When styling vibrant, colors keep the rest of your outfit simple and allow the colorful piece to make a statement. If you’re going for a coat like this one, try pairing with pair vintage jeans with a raw cut hem. The hem adds an extra flare but doesn’t compete with the coat for attention.

Outfit Details:

  • Coat – H&M
  • Jeans – Vintage Levi’s (Purchased from Poshmark)
  • Shirt – Gap
  • Hat – Carhart
  • Scarf – Scottish Festival Find
  • Boots – Tommy Hilfiger

FullSizeRender-1Think outside of the box, try a mismatched look.

I dare you to enter your closet and make an outfit out of pieces that don’t traditionally go together. You never know what you may come up with, it could be your new favorite look!

Here we have a two-piece jersey and shorts set paired with more traditional pieces, like a black blazer and oxfords. The trick to pulling off a look like this is having the confidence to try new things.  For this outfit, athletic wear has been turned into an office-friendly look by layering with a classic turtleneck and blazer. This New Yorker represented her personal style with studded oxfords, a trendier version of a staple shoe.

Outfit Details:

  • Blazer – Helmut Lang
  • Jersey Set – Nike
  • Turtleneck – Zara
  • Shoes – Unknown British Brand

Two-piece sets create the complete illusion.

Wake up late and don’t know what to wear? Grab your favorite two-piece set for an instant solution.

Matching sets give the illusion of being put-together with minimal effort. If you’re new to wearing a matching set, try a simple pattern like seen here on this knit jogger set. To break up the print or to avoid a monochromatic look, layer with jackets of different textures. A classic leather motto or distressed jean jacket will do the trick. Don’t forget to personalize the look with your favorite accessories. This could mean pom-pom sneakers and fruit bag for some, and a red bandana with Vans for another. Do you.
