As New York Fashion Week opens a month of runway looks, new streetwear trends and outrageous fashion gossip, we bring you a guide to packing for The Big Apple.
The New York City style is one of the most loved looks of all time. From Sex and the City to Gossip Girl, the trend has been well-documented with countless screen heroes sporting preppy plaid, tulle and vertiginous heels. To celebrate the start of New York Fashion Week and a new fashion season, we bring you a guide to dressing for New York City, whatever your style.
One of the most recognisable aspects of New York fashion is that total sense of effortlessness. An ease of looking pulled together yet simultaneously undone. This season’s sports-luxe trend is one that really has its own place on the streets of New York and NYC brand Champion defines the athleisure trend. Founded in Rochester, NY almost one hundred years ago the label started life creating sweatshirts and pants for local University and College sports teams before becoming popular with professional sporting heroes. It’s only fitting then, that Champion’s classic hooded design, created in the 1950s has become a staple of the New York street style scene. Paired down with jeans and a blazer or mixed in full tracksuit style, the Champion hoodie is a true testament to New Yorker fashion.
