3 Easy Ways to Achieve New York Street Style in Your Life

As the city that never sleeps, New York City also happens to be the city that never ceases to lead the fashion scene. TBH, the term “street style” was probably coined by the big apple itself for just how much it rules the style world. But who says you have to be a New York native to rock NYC street style in your own life? Lucky for you, we’ve got four easy tips inspired by College Fashion Week to help you channel some major street style vibes in whatever city you reside in.

Find a go-to coat that pulls the look together

We’re here to tell you that it’s SO easy to throw a coat over any outfit. From a casual, athleisure look, to a seriously chic aesthetic, there are so many styles of coats that can help bring your ‘fit to the next level. There are truly so many to choose from —long and classy pea coats, on-trend teddy coats, go-to retro jean jackets. You honestly can’t go wrong with whatever style coat you choose.

Okay, we are LOVING how this plush coat looks at the Almay Cosmic Café.

Pick out some leather accents

Get ready, because leather isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Leather really helps to turn up the volume on an outfit and give it an edgy, street style feel. Although the black leather look is an absolute must-have classic, don’t be afraid to experiment with some new bold colors.

This green leather jacket from Primark is EVERYTHING.

Bold red leather accents on a pair of pants are SO chic (especially when playing in an eos products pit).

Put on your most badass boots

Grab your fave boots that make you feel like a boss ass b*tch, because boots are THE accessory you’ll need to slay the street style game. There’s nothing quite like the sharp sound of your heels clicking across the pavement as you strut through the city streets.

Choose between knee-high boots, kitten heel ankle boots, or a classic ankle boot with a block heel for a street-ready look. Just slip them on with a complementing pair of socks and you’re good to go, girl.



I’m my own competition, I’m competing with myself ✨
