7 Spring Trends NYC Girls Are Actually Wearing

We love Mother Earth and fashion. The two don’t have to be mutually exclusive, which is why for Earth Day, 100% of the products featured in editorial stories published today will be eco-friendly.

If you’re looking for an outfit idea that’s both of-the-moment and practical, there’s no better reference than one from the ladies of NYC… and I’m not just saying that because I recently became one. Their unique perspective—informed both by a walking-centric lifestyle and the fact that they live in what is arguably the country’s most stylish city (sorry, L.A.)—lends itself perfectly to such matters.

They know what to wear if they want to look great and also feel great at the end of a long day that took them from a breakfast meeting to work to dinner to drinks and beyond. So what exactly is this stylish set test-driving right now? You’re about to find out. To see and shop all the spring trends girls in New York are actually wearing this season, just keep scrolling.

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
