Fall Trends: What New York Girls Are Wearing + How To Copy

Fall is here and shockingly I am welcoming the change. Anyone with me on this? Don't get me wrong, I love hot sunny days but the heat was not making me want to rock my fall gear. With all my sweaters piling up and my boots lining the perimeter of my room, I was itching to transition my wardrobe...but not without adding a few new pieces to it first.

As we do every season, we look to NYC to see what the cool chicks are rocking before making an investment. This Fall New York girls have gravitated to some bold trends.

Let see what fall trends NYC girls are wearing:

1. All Things Red!!

This trend is the easiest to pull off and might not require an investment (hello fourth of July tank). For a bold statement reach for a red trench and pair it with black on black. Not so daring? Try a pop of color. Red shoes or a red handbag will do the trick.

2. Sock Boots.

I mean, talk about comfort! While the New York look is a pointed toe and a kitten heel, you can find a few variations in the market. Have fun and buy a printed pair or a statement color!

3. Oversized Plaid Blazers. 

Both oversized and plaid being key words here. If you know me, FIT is everything! Make sure the blazer hits below the butt. 

4. Top-handle Handbags. 

Thank you Chloe for mainstreaming this trend. Think small and structured.

Tips on navigating trends:

When choosing trends to invest in, you have to stay true to your own style. Look and see which trend compliments your current wardrobe, mood, and overall style. For example, if you've always despised the color red you don't need to all of a sudden embrace it just because its the color of the season. Ya feel me? You also want to keep in mind that a trend is the fashion of the moment so you don't need to drop mad dime on these new items. The key is to buy a few staples that modernize your wardrobe.
