The girls from New York City are a special breed. They have a truly unique and unmistakable style that sometimes makes you wander how much time they spend creating an outfit. The number one thing they do when they dress themselves is staying true to themselves and their personality. There is hardly really a trend or a particular style of dressing (like in Paris or Milan for example) everybody just creates an outfit that fits their personality and is unique to the person who wears it mixing different cultural elements with traditional “all american” style . The New Yorkers want to be different than everybody else, that is why you will see so many personalized outfits on the streets of Lower East Side…a skirt that has been purposely cut in a different than the original way to suite better the owner, a purse that has been personalized with stickers and hand-drawing, a lot of high and low fashion pieces worn together, you name it. Of course there are few common grounds when it comes to New York fashion style. First of all, the style is very street and this is evident even on the Upper East Side (have you noticed the nike sneakers or the toms sleep ons worn with everything from a nice tailored suit to an evening gown). This leads us to the second common trait of the New Yorker’s style – comfort, the girl in this city is busy and constantly on the move so she decided that being comfortable is more important to her than being ladylike or looking sexy and sensual…with time, however, she has mastered being all of the above but in comfortable clothes. And last but not least the girl of New York is experimental and not afraid to provoke and even shock with her outfits. This only proves how much fun the New Yorker has with fashion and how well she understands that style comes from within is a tool for expressing yourself.
