I live in L.A., but I’ve been visiting NYC for the last few weeks and have been soaking in all of the sartorial newness while I’ve been here. Hitting at a time when the weather is transitioning to spring, everyone is bringing their best new season looks to the streets and I’m feeling inspired by everything I’m seeing. From updated proportions of closet staples to trendy items that are destined to get even bigger, there are so many takeaways about what to add to your cart, based on what I’ve seen stylish New Yorkers wearing.
Some of the most popular items include pieces like slouchy jeans, retro sneakers, and distressed leather, which are everywhere on the streets of Soho. There is also a lot of focus on cool accessories, with pieces like pointed knee-high boots, Y2K-inspired heels, and sporty sunglasses winning out. Ahead, see my complete NYC shopping list with pieces I feel inspired to add to my cart after spending time here.
