I share my top fashion tips on what to wear in New York, for women over 40.
What to wear in NY? The quick answer is… whatever you want, but in this video I am going to give you a few tips with help you narrow that down a bit into a stylish and functional look.
I’m back from NYC and I had a ball. If you want to see what I got up to and where I shopped, check out my where to shop in NY series. I’ll put the link in the description below.
Get your style on girl. NY is a place where anything goes, so have fun with it. This is the place to explore the looks you normally wouldn’t dare to wear.
Wear comfortable, but stylish shoes. You are going to walk a lot. Even taking the subway and bus still means walking plenty. So make sure your shoes are comfortable and stylish and this doesn’t mean scuffed sneakers. This can be a pair of ankle boots, flat walking boots, stylish sneakers or pointy toe flats.
Downsize your handbag and go cross body. Believe me, you are not going to want to lug around a big handbag in NY. I had to take my camera, lapel mic, cell phone, selfie stick etc and still managed to pack it all in this cross body bag. It was a bit heavy, but much easier to carry since it was a cross body.
Wear layers. If you really want to see the city, you are going to be out and about for hours, so wear layers you can easily put on and take off. Besides, even when it’s chilly outside, inside is super warm. I would wear a thin top, jeans and boots and then just add my coat. And don’t forget the scarf.
If it’s chilly, wear a coat and hat : Even spring time is chilly. I would suggest buying there if you don’t want to lug something around. I found this beauty trench at a thrift store for $45 and I am so grateful I did. I also got this hat on the side of the road as I was freezing. Hats help keep you warm, but they also add style to your look.
