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

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. ┬áMake 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
