After living in the city for over a month now, I’ve begun to notice that New Yorkers are very fond of the color black. How can you blame them though? It’s such a classic color that says so much without saying anything at all. In NYC, it’s imperative to master the art of crafting the perfect day to night ensemble. In a city that never sleeps, you never know what kind of adventures are right around the corner. Being prepared with a versatile outfit is an absolute must.
This Fashionista kept her look extremely minimal with a simple black top, high-waisted denim and the perfect strappy black sandals. Even though it has been almost unbearably warm during the day lately, it usually cools down in the evening. This Fashionista was smart to bring an over-sized beige cardigan to throw on when she gets chilly.
My favorite accessories that she wore were permanent ones. Her delicate tattoos made me suddenly wish that I had a few of my own. There’s something about floral tattoos that are so timeless and ladylike. I loved the way the colors popped against the simple black silhouette that she put together. Also, take note of her all black sunnies. It’s crazy how a pair of sunglasses can change everything. They just polish off the entire look while giving the illusion that you’re someone really important. It’s clearly a win-win situation.
One Simple Change: If the jeans are too casual for wherever you’re heading in the evening, try swapping them out for a sleek vinyl skirt. It will turn this basic look into the perfect outfit for a night out with your girls.
