What to wear for springtime in New York – We have some ideas.
Clearly, Mother Nature hasn’t received the memo that spring has arrived. (Hence, New Yorkers recently sledding and building snowmen in Central Park). But while the city waits for warmer temperatures to set in, you can start shopping for the new season. Here are some ideas for what to wear in New York in spring.
A nomad-inspired dress.
Ask yourself this: What would a nomad in the Moroccan desert wear if she were incredibly fashion-forward? As one of spring’s hottest trends, nomadic and desert-inspired looks are a must. Think long, breezy caftan dresses, wide-legged trousers, and billowing tunics in a palette of orange, khaki, and cream. The best part? With such loose cuts and silhouettes, you don’t have to worry about any so-called “problem areas.”
A plaid or checkered spring coat.
Plaid and checks were dominant prints on the Spring/Summer 2018 runways, and a patterned spring coat is perfect for city slickers. With NYC’s unpredictable weather, you can never have too many of these trusty transition season pieces.
A lacy blouse.
Add a touch of romance to your NYC spring wardrobe with a feminine blouse brimming with lace details. The Victorian trend always pops up every few seasons, so the right lace blouse will last for years to come. Pair your lace topper with a pencil skirt for an updated office look, or wear it with leather leggings for a nighttime ensemble that’s anything but demure.
An oversized blazer.
For nights out and day excursions alike, an oversized menswear-inspired blazer is chic and flattering on just about anyone. Plus, it looks just as fabulous with your favorite t-shirt and jeans as it does with a sexy cocktail dress.
A pair of block heels.
As much as we all love a fierce knee-high boot, it’s about time to trade in those heavy winter shoes for a fresh pair of spring pumps. Instead of stilettos, however, this season’s footwear must-have is a stylish pair of block heels. Your feet will thank you.
A splash of pastel.
Take a cue from the starlets at this year’s Oscars and add some pastel pieces to your NYC spring wardrobe. From dresses to nail polish, it’s all about pastel pink and nude-blush tones.
A pair of cat-eye shades.
Welcome spring with a brand-new pair of cat-eye sunglasses! With certain pairs of sunglasses costing little more than a latte at your nearest coffee shop, rocking the on-trend retro look couldn’t be easier.
