WHAT TO WEAR: Vacation

What to Wear

What to wear for a sunny afternoon in Midtown? Dress cool, casual and comfortable. These three Cs are to be kept in mind as the day’s activities quickly unfold. From Bryant Park to Times Square the perfect outfit will make the perfect day. Today’s Fashionista has made simple into stylish. The first item to catch someone’s eye would definitely be the cropped denim jacket. Denim jackets are definitely a ‘90s trend that is quickly taking the place of current leather outerwear. It complements the rest of the outfit and adds a bit of color. Shop here at Nordstrom for a similar crop denim jacket by Eileen Fisher.

The Fashionista’s black lace crop top and pleated skirt match well and are perfect for a cool, little breeze. The current trend of lace has journeyed from gowns to tank tops so a little bit of lace is always a good thing. A similar all-over lace crop top can be purchased here. Scuba pleated skater skirts are an emerging trend. The Fashionista has on a casual black, pleated skirt similar to this scuba pleated one from Lipsy. For a slightly different style, shop this high-waisted pleated skater skirt from Charlotte Russe.

The right shoes are super important when trekking through the concrete fashion jungle that is New York City. Today’s Fashionista thought ahead by wearing a comfortable pair of slip on shoes. They have a leather textured look to them and closely resemble these Vans for both men and women. The final piece that complements the outfit entirely is the multi-charm necklace. This type of necklace is becoming increasingly popular as it can be worn with almost anything. Here is a multi-charm necklace from Macy’s that can either be purchased in silver or gold. From head to toe this outfit is definitely a good choice for a day out with friends, or maybe even a lunch date!

One Simple Change: Black is always a go to color for picking out an outfit. Instead of playing it safe, perhaps pairing the lace top with a bright, pleated circle skirt such as this one will make the look even more fun and trendy.
