We're Ready for a New Pair of Boots, and We Think We've Found the One

While we're constantly looking to our friends overseas for fashion inspiration, let's not forget about the incredible style right outside our front doors. We've teamed up with Frye and three uniquely fashionable women from different cities around the U.S. to share their fresh take on all-American style. Our first girl gave us her L.A. perspective, then we headed down south to Nashville—next stop, NYC.

Is there any place on earth better for people-watching than New York City? We think not—the city's unparalleled blend of cultures and attitudes makes for some truly memorable street style moments (read: serious outfit inspo). Just ask NYC-based blogger Tessa Barton of By Tezza: "There's the artsier, more daring crew in Brooklyn, the buttoned-up Uptowners, and everything in between," she says of the city's diverse population. Barton's own style is a mix of city chic and bohemian, with a focus on great accessories—especially her ready-for-anything Frye moto boots and city-essential leather backpack.

Below, see how Barton is styling her favorite fall pieces through a New York lens.
