What to Wear: The MET

What to Wear


You can’t help seeing them everywhere in New York city. The art students. I try to take my fashion cues from the girls in my graphic design class, whose top knots and Dr Martens would make you rethink your wardrobe, too. Nowhere is New York style more on display than at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the Upper East Side, which tends to attract an eclectic, fashion-conscious crowd. Dress like an art student when you head to the MET!
