How to Look Like a Real New Yorker


Oversized Outfits

3. Experiment with proportions

The street fashion has its origins on the podiums and New York designers always experiment with interesing figure proportions and provocative shapes. Aren’t the skirts from Calvin Klein’s last collection just fascinating? And the oversized pieces are Alexander Wang’s trademark.


The main rule for a perfect play with proportions is to choose one area of your body only. It is recommended so that your figure does not get lost behind the quirky silhouettes completely. The oversized top of your choice, be it a cocoon coat or a tender knit sweater, should be worn with skinny jeans or a narrow skirt. Save the flared trousers for a plain polo.
