WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

September 24th, 2015 at 2:00am

In New York, Saturdays and Sundays are not merely additional days to catch up on Netflix or sleep in until lunchtime. Weekends have the most extraordinary potential in the city, from the luscious parks, the enchanted shopping districts and of course, the plethora of restaurants. Needless to say, once the weekend arrives, a New Yorker’s outfit of the day is of critical importance!

This Fashionista is rocking her street style in the West Village of Manhattan, where one can find a coffee shop or boutique on any corner. September provides the ideal weather for the union of tank tops and pants. The city has bid farewell to summer’s choking humidity and has yet to meet the frigid temperatures of winter, so now is the perfect time for a Fashionista to experiment with layers and silhouettes.

Among the components of this Fashionista’s ensemble, I admire the cup of coffee the most, which is the necessary for any New Yorker on an eventful Sunday. She tremendously balanced her gray and black color scheme from head to toe. Her clutch is a blend of both colors and is the quintessential size for holding two items at once (a clutch in one hand with a caffeinated treat in the other). The ultimate conversation piece graced her neck, a Chinese locket! Upon asking about its origin, she informed me that people used to keep crickets inside of the chest for good luck. Although these are rare to find, there are several varieties of vintage jewelry throughout Etsy. Her wide-legged pants tell the world how stylish yet functional she is, especially when a Sunday in the city can put miles on one’s legs.

One Simple Change: This outfit could take her from a sprightly Sunday to a manic Monday with chic simplicity. Perhaps the Fashionista could keep this outfit for class. Or if the autumn chills unexpectedly arrive, she could slip on this gray sweater from Urban Outfitters, which is surely a fall favorite!
