Baby, It’s Cold Outside: Layer Up!

2:38 PM

Layers For those of you on the East Coast, we assume you're well aware of the recent temperature drop we've been experiencing. The weather has been crisp, cool, fresh and an all-around perfect fall season as of yet. If you haven't already done so, it's officially time to break out your layering pieces.

Oh, layering. Where do we even begin? We think of layering as a type of art. If done properly, you can look so effortless and chic like you quickly threw together this masterpiece of an outfit. Someone will always pay you that compliment of, “Oh my god you look so cute today!” and the response is generally, “Really?!! I just threw it on and ran out the door.”

Bottom line: once you know how to properly layer your garments the outcome will always be compliment-worthy. We put together four different layered-up outfits for daily situations all girls encounter.

Watch the video to see how we layer up! (more…)

Trends to Try for the Upcoming Winter Season

11:14 AM

Winter BluesThere are many people who are willing to look fashionable but are sometimes at a loss as to how to do this. For instance, most people often have a very difficult time figuring out what kind of clothes to wear during winter. For most, the fact that it’s very cold makes them go for functionality rather than form when shopping for winter clothes. This means that they sacrifice fashion just to be comfortable.

However, the fact of the matter is that you can get the best of both worlds if you are interested in it. There are a few fashion trends that are poised to be very popular during the winter and which still remain fashionable. Some of these include: (more…)

So You Want to Be a New Yorker? Read This!

11:15 AM

You want be a Carrie Bradshaw, Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf or whatever overly dramatic character from Glee that’s living the glamorous life in the city. Take it from a relatively new New Yorker – it’s not like that. Granted my life is full of dramatic, fantastic, unexplainable events worthy of a Lifetime movie (lookout for the premiere in 30 years) but it's still mostly UN-glamorous. (more…)

Summer Prints and How to Stop Traffic

10:39 AM

Summer has officially arrived in New York City. Everyone is breaking out their shorts, breezy fabrics and flirty dresses. This summer is the summer of prints and brights. Loud, fun, obnoxious, novelty prints and bold, saturated colors. Prints of all kinds including florals, animal, skulls, paisley, preppy, you name it. I myself love bold abstract and tribal statement prints. It’s a great way to stand out in NYC.

New Yorkers are all in an unspoken competition to see who can stand out the most and make a statement. Life here is about celebrating individuality and having others notice and acknowledge it. But in a place where the competition and ambition are high, no one will notice you if you don’t give them a reason to.  Incorporating a colorful print into your outfit is a simple eye catching way to spark interest.  Check out the bright summer prints on these street stylers in Little Italy.

Trending: Stripes!

11:13 AM

Trend

People might be intimidated by wearing striped tops, jeans, dresses, etc. Stripes have the reputation of making you look wider than you truly are. However, according to a style report on TLC, “A perception expert at the University of York in the U.K. found that when two women of the same size wore horizontally and vertically striped dresses, the woman wearing the horizontal stripes appeared thinner. These experiments were based on the Helmholtz square illusion, first created in the eighteenth century, and suggest that horizontal stripes may help slim the figure by creating a 3D effect and introducing depth.”

Check out a few easy ways to look great and feel confident wearing stripes! (more…)

How To Not Look like a Tourist in the Rain

11:15 AM

Rain, rain go away come again while I’m on vacation in the Bahamas. Rain sucks. Unless you’re trying to sleep or overindulge in carbs (guilty!), then it’s the perfect motivation. The sidewalks in the city become filled with slow-walking, umbrella-carrying, rain-boot-wearing, frizzy-hair-having pedestrians that all have the same grimace as the horizontal rain sprinkles onto their faces, making their umbrellas mostly useless.

Food

I was near the Meatpacking District meeting some friends for a lazy Sunday carb-loading Italian dinner (check out the tiramisu above) while checking out everyone’s drizzle style and taking creeper shots. The rain stayed at a consistent drizzle/fuzzy sprinkle all day so people were dressed across the board. I caught some overly prepared tourists walking around in their candy colored PVC ponchos who looked like they were ready for a monsoon, and locals who were mostly dressed in light hooded jackets, hats or completely unprepared as if it was just another sunny day. I met a group of friends all with their individual styles to combat the elements.
