NYC fashion, downtown districts

New York City is one of the biggest fashion capitals in the world. In this article, I, a student at New York University, will take you through my interpretation on the different styles of the districts surrounding the school. P.s. I swear I am happier than I look in the videos ☺

First stop: Greenwich Village

Greenwich village is the home to New York University so I put together an outfit appropriate for the classroom. I paired a classic white button up, a studded belt and ripped boyfriend shorts from rag & bone with white sandals from Vince accessorized with a black Love Moschino backpack and mirrored glasses from Vü Frameworks. This look is perfect to go to class, as it is both casual and cute.

Next Stop: NoHo

NoHo is becoming a very trendy area, so I thought pairing the sheer top trend and bomber trend would be seamless. I wore very distressed white jeans from Blank NYC, a sheer black top from Zara, a bomber from Rochambeau, and metallic slip on sneakers from Jigsaw. I wore a different style of glasses from Vü Frameworks and the same Love Moschino backpack.

Next Stop: SoHo

SoHo is the most popular fashion district in New York City, so I made sure to accentuate one of the most popular trends at the moment: Athleisure. I wore a ~racy~ sweatshirt from Private Party, a sporty leather jacket from The Kooples, textured biker leggings from Alo Yoga, a camouflage hat from Brandy Melville and leather sneakers from Nike.

Next Stop: Flatiron

Previously known as the Toy District and then referred to as the Photo District, and now considered a part of “Silicon Alley” due to the rising number of startups, Flatiron has changed quite a bit throughout the years. You may think that this outfit looks a bit familiar, and it is. You can’t go wrong with a trendy bomber jacket and ripped jeans and sneakers! In this version, I went with a classic white long sleeve from Aritzia, sparkly bomber jacket from Endless Rose, black ripped jeans from Rag & Bone, and silver/white Stan Smiths by Adidas. I am also wearing the same glasses from Vü Frameworks and a black cross body bag by Rebecca Minkoff. As you can see the same style of outfit can bring a different outcome just as the same district can bring different cultures. If you find that you like an outfit, don’t be afraid to wear different variations of it!

Final Stop: Union Square

There’s nothing like a beautiful sunny day walking through Union Square Park and people watching. It is an important and historic intersection in Manhattan, so I thought it would be appropriate to combine silk, lace and jean as Union square contains so many different people. I kept cool in a rust colored blouse from Planet Blue, bralette from Nasty Gal, ripped jean skirt from LF, strappy sandals from Jeffrey Campbell, sunglasses from Oliver Peoples, and the same black Rebecca Minkoff cross body bag.
