NYC IT GIRL ESSENTIALS: FALL EDITION

The Fall Season is finally here! Need a little outfit inspiration? Then check out this quick guide to this season’s Fashion Necessities!

  • Perfect plaid jacket: A boxy cut plaid jacket adds vintage flare to absolutely any outfit. It is extremely versatile in its simplicity; it can be worn as a blazer dress for a bold look or paired with matching trousers for a business look on busy days. In addition, it can be easily transitioned from day to night when sneakers are swapped for heels. Jazz it up with silver or gold jewelry, and diamonds to match. A pair of black tights underneath also look incredibly classy, and offer a little warmth on colder days.

  • Sportswear sneakers: A pair of trainers are the essential everyday shoe. It doesn’t matter what kind of day one has planned or the event one may be heading to; sneakers are always in style. Platform sneakers sport a nineties inspired look, while a basic pair match anything and everything. Sneakers in bold prints and colors, and adorned with embellishments also make for a true fashion statement.  
  • Fluffy fur coat: An oversized fur coat in any color, faux or real, is a statement on its own. It also has the ability to pull every outfit together. Throwing fur over jeans and a tee turns an outfit effortlessly chic. The coat is best styled minimalistically. Practical shoes, a pair of hoop earrings, and a beret are all one could ever need.

  • Light linen dress: Take your favorite summer sundress and make it a transitional piece. Pairing it with a denim or leather jacket will add an extra layer and create a flawless fall ensemble. A linen dress also looks great with platform boots for a grungy, urban look. It can be dressed up or dressed down; offering plenty of variety. It can be worn with simple nude makeup for a dainty and delicate look, or worn with a bright red lip to channel one’s inner French girl.

  • Basic feminine blouse: A blouse with a corset fit is extremely flattering on any body type. Like the linen dress, it pairs well with denim and leather. The look can also be spiced up with a printed neck scarf and mini bag. Find a blouse that is sheer or adorned with ruffles, laces up the front, or sits off the shoulder.

  • Fabulous fit denim: Denim is a given because one can never go wrong with a comfy pair of jeans. High waisted denim however offers much more than just comfort. A high waisted fit hugs the female silhouette and slims the body in all of the right places. Tuck a tee into them for a cinched waist. They can also be paired with a silky lace top for a sexy look, or a large chunky sweater for a cozy look.
