New York Style Guide

Almost every fashion lover can name off the four fashion capitals of the world (New York, Paris, Milan, and London if you were curious). For this reason,fashion-obsessed I couldn’t help but wonder exactly what made each fashion capital tick. Each season similar items might appear on the runways, but often each city's fashion weeks will have their own ‘look’. As the particularly fashion obsessed person I am, I decided why not give everyone a special treat for the holidays and break down each city’s unique style…

If you want to look at the others, here are the links!




New York is a fashion mecca to me, a place that I gravitate to more than another. Perhaps it’s the casual acceptance of its people that simply let everyone wear what they want or maybe it's the multitude of options for things to dress up for, but either way, New York is *that* fashion capital for me. Of course, Paris, London, and Milan all hold special places in my heart as well. But for me, getting the classic New Yorker look will be my forever goal.
