Also, sustainable brands are always an in – we’ve gathered the most eco-friendly and fashionable brands right now.
Outfit #1 – Central Park
For a day out in Central Park, it is good to go with shorts and a simple, yet fashionable, t-shirt. Although you might want to avoid wearing shorts at night, just in case there are insects due to the humidity, it should be relatively fine during the day-time. The huge trees and wildlife will make you want to sit down on one of the benches and just take in the view of the city, resting in the midst of the fast-paced business of the city life. A pair of classic beige shorts, with fabric which lets the wind get through easily, and a lovely bright-coloured t-shirt will go together, alongside some comfortable trainers – they do not have to be running shoes, just a dandy pair of flats will do – and maybe a cute hat to finish the look. For accessories, perhaps a fanny-pack/bum-bag or a small cross-body bag to complete the summery look for a day out in the park is best. It probably is not a good idea to carry around a big handbag for taking a walk around the park, so a small bag which you can easily slip on and off is most useful.
Outfit #2 – Museums
The combination of a chill and classy date can be enjoyed at one, or more, of New York’s infamous museums, such as the American Museum of Natural History or The Metropolitan Museum of Art. For a day out looking around at art and history, it is best to go with long, wide trousers (as you will be inside most of the time) with summer fabric, that allows the breeze to enter and keeps you cool, but also covers some skin. For the top, a simple t-shirt or blouse with pretty embroidered patterns seems perfect, perhaps a white shirt with embroidered flowers on the front. A thin, summer blazer made from nude colours might be useful and will complete the look if you are the type to get chilly quite easily. For shoes, slip-shoes that have a flat bottom seems perfect – not too informal and sporty but will keep your feet comfortable for walking around and standing most of the time. To complete the look with accessories, a chic and stylish handbag with small earrings, a watch or bracelet seems to be the perfect match.
Outfit #3 – Tower/Observatory
One of the most amazing things you can do is to take in the panoramic view of the glistening city of New York from above, in one of New York’s famous towers or observatories. Going in the evening will mean enjoying an even more romantic atmosphere which you can cherish with a loved one or just marvel at with friends and family. The romantic atmosphere calls for a romantic outfit, not too elegant, but enough to show your beauty; it calls for an outfit enough to blend in with the dazzling city lights, but also stand out from the crowd. The best outfit would be a simple one-piece dress, with some patterns to give a point to the look. Elegant and eye-catching accessories would be suitable for the occasion and, instead of flat shoes, maybe sensible heels. With a one-piece dress, a smaller bag would suit the look, rather than an oversized bag, and although an outer layer might not be necessarily needed, perhaps it would be sensible to carry around a light jacket if you finish looking at the scenic view and decide to come down in the late evening.
Outfit #4 – Circle Line Sightseeing Cruise
This outfit should be suitable for wearing on an approximately three-hour-long tour – on a small ferry – with the wind gliding across and the sun shining down on your face. Something comfortable would also be preferable, not to mention something pretty – for taking those unforgettable photos! A cute, floral summer dress would suit the overall mood, but it might also have a soft texture so that the dress floats in the air when you glide through the breeze. Maybe a sun hat would also be suitable, but it can get a little uncomfortable when there are also many other people out on the deck, trying to take photos at once. Hence, it might be better to use different accessories to complete the look. Although the water does not splash on your feet, it is better to wear sensible flats as you want to be able to keep your balance on the small cruise ship, during the tour.
Outfit #5 – Times Square
Being one of the most active, busiest and trendy areas in New York City, which virtually no one misses out on when visiting, Times Square calls for an equally trendy, street-inspired outfit. Denim (shorts or skirt) is the perfect match for such a vibe, and a simple t-shirt or blouse would be suitable for the top. Since this is an extremely touristy area, it can get a little hot and busy and, so, it is better not to bring an outer layer necessarily. Also, since there will be many people bustling around, it might be better to wear trainers to be able to get around easily. A small or big bag would be suitable for this outfit, but just be aware of others around and keep it in sight. Also, a baseball cap or something similar might be suitable to complete the overall sporty look. Accessories-wise, a cute bracelet or ring might be suitable, nothing too glamorous, like the square itself is very bright and busy.
