While New Yorkers tend to dress well all year round, lately they've been bringing it with their summertime 'fits—their fall style is where it really gets good, IMHO. As soon as the weather cools, you can spot NYC girls breaking out chic new outerwear looks, test driving the latest denim trends, and playing around with some creative layering ideas. So although this fall may not come with the same social calendar and likely without the fashion week shows to kick things off in September, we're still taking cues from these stylish New York women and their fall-ready looks.
We're all leaning into low-key, casual dressing these days, and come fall, we're predicting the vibe will still be the same. From elevated legging looks to comfy knitted dresses you can wear both inside and out, we're looking to the below nine NYC fall outfits to guide our style.
Take your legging looks to a whole new level by opting for a trendy split-hem pair that feels especially fresh. Throw on an oversize blazer for an instant polish.
If you do wear jeans, make this casual formula your new go-to. Wear loose-fitting or wide-leg denim with a basic tank, tee, or bodysuit and top it off with a blazer and flats. It's simple but looks so chic.
Just because we're no longer wearing sweats 24/7 doesn't mean we're ditching them completely, either. In fact, I think it's given us a newfound appreciation for a matching set in a pretty color. Wear one with tall socks and throwback sneakers for the ultimate cozy-cool vibe.
Knit dresses are another cold-weather trend that's deceivingly comfortable and easily dressed up or down—it all depends on the shoes and accessories.
Slip dresses rose to a new level of popularity this summer, so we predict that fashion girls will keep wearing them into fall with the addition of a cute cardigan thrown over.
To give loafers (and other flat shoes) a quirky-cool update, simply style them with tall socks. Bonus points if your socks come in an eye-catching color or a pretty print.
