How to Look Like a Real New Yorker
1. Choose comfortable outfits
The women of New York prefer their days to be comfortable in all the ways possible. Sitting in the office in strict suits and with high heels is in the past, today everyone’s style is less formal. The best example for the current trend towards comfort is Patti Smith with her ability to mix undone boyishness and minimalism.
The look can give almost a messy feel which puts your company at ease implying that you are not pushing too hard with your appearance. And don’t be afraid to mix styles: if you feel good wearing a skirt and sneakers – just go for it. That is the essence of NY style: not really caring about what others think, it’s all about your own comfort.
