    I can guarantee that just about every trendy New Yorker has at least one or two leather jackets in her closet. Try wearing a jacket that's fitted like this one!

    I've noticed that New Yorkers tend to embrace a pretty grungy, edgy style when it comes to after hours attire. I'm obsessed with all the Doc Marten boots and oxfords I've seen women wearing on the streets.

    Hands down, I see women in New York donning classic Ray Bans sunglasses more than any other trend. Plus, a cute pair of Ray Bans will probably still be in style ten years from now!

    New York women are famous for our monochromatic, black-and-white ensembles. I've noticed lots of women wearing bright floral or polka dot pants recently. Which pattern would you try?

  • Statement Necklace 5 of 5

    Have you seen photographs from New York fashion week? I was struck by how many huge, colorful necklaces I saw on the streets. A statement necklace is the perfect way to spice up your tee-and-jeans combo!
