Last Minute Holiday Street-Style Snapshot: NYC
Not to be outdone in the midst of the holiday rush, New York City’s chicest individuals paraded the streets this Christmas Eve in search of last-minute gifts and everyday errands, alike. Check out the haute holiday rush of last minute shopping in NYC below…
The Oversized Sweater (Lucy, NY)
Big sweaters with bright colors and crazy patterns aren’t just for satirical parties anymore. Follow Lucy’s example, shown here on the Lower East Side, and pair a busy sweater with an understated, neutral bottom and accessories in the same color to make a bold, but sartorial, statement this holiday season.
Contrast to Complement (Mizuki & Babu, Brooklyn)
Mizuki and Babu, a couple from Japan now living in Brooklyn, are a fashion statement of their own. By contrasting Babu’s patterns with Mizuki’s minimalist color scheme but bold textures and linking them with the simplest of accessories— a baseball cap— these two form their own bohemian rhapsody. Achieve a similar effect with your significant other by dressing in clashing palettes and choosing one common accessory to make the overall look cohesive.
The Statement Scarf (Kenda, Gainesville, Florida & Claudia, Italy)
The recent deep-freeze may force you to prioritize warmth over glamour, but a statement scarf, as worn here by Kerry (left) and Claudia (right) can add a punch of color to an otherwise-neutral ensemble and allow your personality to warm up the cold weather. Our favorites feature unexpected prints and rich colors.
Feminine Without Freezing (Kerry, Malibu)
Follow Kerry’s lead and layer soft, textured pieces over cold-weather staples like jeans in order to achieve a smart take on classic, feminine pieces. Vary up the color palette, mix up lengths and textures, and accessories intelligently to achieve a measured, yet eclectic aesthetic shown here.
If All Else Fails, Stay True (Leah & Stefan, Australia)
Leah and Stefan made the most of classic style to stand out this winter. If you aren’t one for style experimentation, but still want to have fun, stick to tailored pieces in classic cuts and styles but in unexpected colors (i.e. Leah’s bright yellow tights) to simultaneously pay homage to fashion tradition and take the world by surprise.
