When did black become the color New Yorkers wear most? It obviously has it's functional purposes (it truly goes with everything), and perhaps even symbolic ones (yes, our souls are this color too), but for a city that's as diverse and colorful as it gets the color black still seems like an off choice to me.
So it's probably the California girl in me who, every winter, tries her best to break all standards and switch things up from wearing head-to-toe black. While it may take longer to get dressed, it's always nice to wear the other half of my wardrobe and find new ways to wear older pieces. As I soon discovered before my shoot above: a pair of wide-leg, white trousers goes with almost just as many things that your black bottoms would, while an embroidered or printed vest adds just as much warmth as your leather or furry go-to.
That said, with NYFW kicking off today, I'm sure I'll be experimenting with a lot more color, textures and prints throughout the week... Can't wait to share what I've put together with you! Come follow me on Instagram to see what I'm up to and definitely hit me up if you're planning on coming to town. I always love meeting new faces/ other fashion enthusiasts.
