PressRoomVIP's Fashionista Chica went to three of New York's hottest neighborhoods: Upper East Side, Financial District, and Brooklyn to see how the different sub-cultures warm up for the winter! Each area has their own unique approach to style. Lets see how these New Yorkers accessorize for the cold.
Hey Ladies, this is Marisol, the Fashionista Chica with Pressroom VIP. New York is full of sub-cultures, each with their own unique approach to style. Today, we're going to see how a few of New York's hottest neighborhoods accessorize for their coldest days. So, get your fuzzy mittens ready, and come with me!
Here we are on the Upper East Side, one of the more upscale areas in America. Designer stores just below million dollar condos with Central Park views means one thing: there's a lot of cha-ching walking down Park Ave. But don't worry, there's ways to get this look without breaking the bank. Upper-East-Siders in the winter are all about looking posh. A fur jacket and hat, short leather gloves, and big sunglasses are all must-haves of this neighborhood. And of course, a designer purse right at your hip for that X-O-X-O Gossip Girl kind of look.
If the Upper East Side is where the wealthy are, the Financial District is where the money is. Day- traders and investment bankers are all-business, so dress the part, and sell, sell, sell, that look. A sleek black trench-coat comes alive with the help of a cream textured infinity scarf and adorable earmuffs. Don’t forget your cashmere gloves with touchscreen fingertips to answer those urgent emails. While ladies in the financial district need to dress for the office, they want to be comfortable during their commute. That means simple flats and a big purse for their heels. One thing is for sure, these ladies look as good as their stock options.
We headed across the East River to Williamsburg, one of the fastest growing neighborhoods of Brooklyn. While many people know the area as the land of the hipster, most residents here shudder at the word. These days, the Brooklyn look includes a monochromatic style with utilitarian sensibilities. The Carhartt hat is a staple of the Williamsburg look, along with fingerless gloves, a heavy parka jacket, and a big, wool scarf to keep you warm. Call it cool, call it grunge- just don't call it hipster.
There you have it, three ways to accessorize this winter, inspired by some of New York's hottest neighborhoods. This is Marisol, the Fashionista Chica with Pressroom VIP telling you to stay warm, and have a great start of the New Year!
