Never underestimate the power of a thrifty find.

This New Yorker had me stopped in my tracks. Her flowing faux leather skirt had me in awe, come to find out it was thrifted.

Digging and sifting through racks on racks of clothes is worth the search when you land a treasure like this one. Style a dramatic piece like this with more simple ones to create a balance. Tie a graphic tee at the waist to add some dimension and layer over a denim jacket. The distressing and patchwork on the jacket gives the outfit a signature street style feel, making you the ultimate cool girl.

Step away from your jewelry box; Metallics are making a major move into your closet.

From a bright silver to a delicate rose gold, show off your favorite crushed metal this season.

If it’s your first time wearing this trend, go for a silver jacket like this New Yorker here. The faux shearling lining offers greater detail to the statement jacket. Balance out the outfit with an all black ensemble. To add a touch of flare, go for a pair of bell bottom pants. When wearing bell bottoms, pair with a pump or heeled bootie to elongate the leg. Accents of color coming from handbags or jewelry completes the look.

Black and white is abstract; color is not. – Joel Sternfeld

Fashion is all about contrast whether you’re playing off different shapes or colors, contrast draws the eye.

When wearing neutral colors don’t be afraid to try bold styles. For instance, a pair of color block jeans is a trendy, fashion forward way up your #ootd game. A mixed patterned coat is a great play on the solid black peacoats flocking the city streets. Pull two contrasting pieces together with a solid garment like this crisp white button down.

Oversized outerwear: comfy, chic, athleisure.

Anyone can throw on a hoodie and walk out the door, but in a fashion driven city, you might get a few looks…and not the ones you want.

Amp up your style by layering with an oversized denim jacket and pairing it with tapered trousers. Dress pants are breaking out of the office and becoming an essential in the athleisure movement. Stay comfortable with a cute pair of sneakers to explore the city in. A simple crossbody bag like the one shown here makes the outfit a bit chicer, you could also take this as an opportunity to give your outfit a pop of color.

Eye-catching, trendy, essential, faux fur.

Faux fur can be seen around the city this season in so many variations; collars, jackets, vests, even pom poms on hats. The trend is even making an appearance in both men’s and women’s fashion.

When wearing a statement piece like a faux fur coat, its best to keep the rest of your outfit simple. A comfy sweater and basic denim will do the trick. In this case, it’s all about styling the outfit with accessories and I think this New Yorker nailed it!

Try adding a classic touch with brown loafers and some fun socks for a bit more edge. Swing your favorite handbag or backpack over your shoulders and you’re ready to hit the streets.
