New York City, with its world-class architecture and influx of culture and nightlife, is the ideal place to showcase the season’s best versatile and statement-making trends. In New York, people are always on the move every minute of every day, this restless energy fuels constant and fast-paced makeovers. During the day time, people pursue their dreams; most working for huge corporations and firms which usually dictate a strict dress code, making it harder to express unique styles and senses of fashion. So, when can you do it? It is fascinating to see how the look of the city changes at night with all the streets light up with billions of lights, making them suddenly look much different from what they appear to be during the day time. The night is a great time to shift gears from all work to all style and to show one’s individual sense of fashion while exploring new trends. You can reflect your mood and personal style, feel bold, and on point in these must-have seasonal staples and create a perfect outfit for a night out in the city that never sleeps.
Yes, you can wear sheer pieces on cold nights, and here is a super stylish and simple way to do it. Think mysterious and a bit vampy and rock a black see-through dress with a faux fur jacket that is luxe, yet warm, and instantly adds visual interest and texture to your ensemble. This totally chic piece is a great transitional item to take you into cooler nights. Rise to the occasion in some edgy platforms with jeweled colors over unique patterned tights to complete the look.
You do not need a signature look. It is all about testing out different lengths, textures, and styles. Let the comfort of a sweater collide with a metallic sequined skirt and heels to create an unexpectedly chill style. Since the skirt and sweater are both very textured, break them up with a bold belt that has a bright pattern. A basic gray sweater can be spiced up by wearing a chunky necklace. Add sheer, bright polka-dotted socks with strappy heels, and you instantly take your outfit to the next level and look effortlessly gorgeous.
The forecast for fashion now? Glam, pretty, and cool. Pick up your favorite. There is always a look that will speak to you. These new trends say it all, so, let your accessories do the talking this season. Add an unexpected twist to a classic red two-piece suit by wearing socks with sophisticated shoes. You look glam, sleek, and modern all at the same time.
And of course, the right makeup will finish up your stylish look of the night. Embrace this season’s new beauty vibe. It is all about dramatic kohl-rimmed eyes, almost naked lips, highlighted skin and opting for undone textures of the hair to achieve a more natural and cool vibe that is highly sought after at the moment. Create endless eyes by adding smudging effects and sharp flicks of eyeliner over dark eye shadow to achieve a very dramatic look. Popular colors of the liner can range from jet blacks to types of midnight blues. So, it’s up to you to choose the color that best suits your personal look and style.
Remember, the goal for this season that any trendy New York City fashionista should know is to look refined and sophisticated, while still being able to give off a fun, young, and edgy vibe. So, create a look that is bound to make a statement and embrace mixed textures, fun details, and hints of shine.
