I just LOVE your website! I was wondering if you can give some ideas for wardrobe for an upcoming trip to NYC. I will be traveling with my husband, mother and teenage daughters next Memorial Day weekend. We will be visiting museums, a broadway show, and LOT of walking around and window shopping…Please could you give me some advice? Thanks a lot!
Having just been to NYC recently, we can say that the first and foremost important item is your shoes! You will need to find a great pair of flats or cute tennis shoes and work your outfits around them.
We saw LOTS of leggings or tight fitting pants with nice flats, long tops and lots of scarves and a big, oversized purse. Black is the locals favorite color.
We recently featured some great new shoes that are both stylish and comfortable. Also, you can go to our archives for more ideas.
Here is a typical outfit(from DKNY and Nordstom):
- Shoe alternative would be a colorful flat or very casual thin soled black tennis shoe with this.
- If your feet are not comfortable, you will be miserable!
- Make sure to wear shoes that are tried and true. Never pack brand new shoes that you have never worn… make sure to break them in before you go.
- Try adding a Cozy (long flowing sweater) to take it from day into evening.
