As one of the world's fashion capitals, it's no surprise that New York City is filled with well-dressed individuals who always look like they just stepped off the cover of some glossy magazine. Even when an off-duty supermodel is spotted on her way to the gym, she still looks incredibly chic. For the rest of us, whose jobs don't involve looking perfect 24/7, finding the time and extra energy to create the perfect ensemble every time we leave our apartments isn't a realistic expectation. Here are some easy tips to look stylish in NYC at all times.

FOUR LEGS ONLY
by Tracy Kaler
New York city is a town of dogs and dog lovers.
It's a dog's world in New York City, and there's a laundry list of dog-friendly places –– think doggie daycares, spas, boutiques, and even a beach –– where Fido can tag along. That's a good thing because pups of all breeds, shapes, and sizes populate the five boroughs. In fact, according to NYEDC, approximately 600,000 canines live in the Big Apple. That's an awful lot of barks.

New York City, despite all its changes and increasing hardships, is still a city of dreamers. From entrepreneurs to aspiring artists, anyone who “thinks big” is in good company when living in the Big Apple. But even in the best of circumstances, thoughts of doubt can seep in and it’s not uncommon for fear to rear its ugly head when we’re trying to reach our goals. For females alone, it was found – via the first Global Dreams Index Survey – that half of all women around the world are dissatisfied with their lives and have given up on their dreams. That’s quite a staggering percentage.

When you step off the G train at the Greenpoint/Manhattan Avenue stop, you'll detect a slower pace than what you'd find across the river. Residents who call this neighborhood home love the laid-back vibe, not to mention the mom-and-pop businesses, particularly the selection of Polish-owned shops that remain. You are in New York City, but definitely not in Manhattan any longer. Welcome to Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
