Given that NYC girls get that whole fashion-meets-function idea (you know, for a life of running around the city), we consistently turn to them for primo style inspiration. In fact, we recently highlighted the basic items this set will wear throughout 2020. Now, we’re ready to take it one step further to showcase the spring staples New Yorkers will probably gravitate toward this season to look especially chic—all based on items they seem to be consistently wearing in street style.
Naturally, the staples in question are all trend-forward but effortless and easy for an on-the-go lifestyle. We’re talking everything from directional denim cuts to comfortable and cool shoes. With all that in mind, keep scrolling for a digest on the spring staples NYC women will most likely wear to keep extra fashionable and polished this season. Plus, shop each item as well—because honestly, they’ll work for anyone, anywhere (even if you don’t reside in the Big Apple).
1. Leather Shirt
The leather trend will absolutely continue into spring. New Yorkers will definitely lean into the faux-leather shirting trend, in particular, to bring that laid-back edge to their ensembles.
2. Baseball Hat
The baseball hat will undoubtedly become a city-girl staple this season given its inherently cool vibe. Hey, celebs like EmRata have already been seen wearing the trend around the city.
3. Slouchy Blazer
You can't go wrong with a bit of tailoring to bring that instant polish to your look. NYC girls will probably still invest in the slouchy blazer trend to be paired with jeans, skirts, and everything in between.
As brands from Michael Kors to Coach showcased on the S/S 20 runways, the classic trench coat gets a modern twist this season with architectural cuts and unique fabrics. City girls will be all about this style for its practicality and forward sensibilities.
5. Big-Collar Tops
We saw plenty of '70s-inspired collars on the spring runways and also those oversize silhouettes featuring frill and lace trims. This is one detail New Yorkers won't skip for its directional and trendy quality.
6. White Jeans
Sure, New York City ladies wear a variety of denim cuts, but it's those straight-leg white jeans we bet we'll spot more and more in the Big Apple to complement the freshest of 'fits.
Yes, sandals probably come to mind first when you think spring, but given that the temperature is currently in transition, we know NYC girls will continue to cling to their flat boots as a trendsetting finishing touch to their "downtown-feeling" looks.
