Street style is one of the most popular parts of fashion, I think everyone knows that – but street wear is a completely different thing. It’s a culture that emerged from skaters and that’s found almost anywhere now, even in haute couture. When it comes to everyday looks, I like mixing it up and incorporating various styles; it makes them a lot more funky and interesting. Doing this with streetwear brands is even more fascinating because certain products from brands have a specific meaning and personality. It’s a movement that gaining more traction, and what better place to celebrate that lifestyle than in NYC?
Spice up your outfit with a statement mini skirt for the spring/summer. If it isn’t warm enough, do it anyway by topping it off with a cozy sweater and a semi-long coat. Wrap it up, buckle it, add fringe to it, whatever you want. But go on, show off those legs.
Experiencing winter in NYC isn’t always the most enjoyable. Anyone who lives there can say they are blessed by a snowstorm each year. The first few moments where the snow sticks to the ground, making everything look peaceful and enchanting, are indeed delightful. However, once the snow turns into slush in a busy city like New York, it ain’t so pretty anymore. There’s a constant struggle of not really knowing what to wear to avoid getting your clothes dirty from all the mush, and especially trying to jump over it in the sidewalks.
From the moment one walks into the polished dusty pink walls that make up the Mansur Gavriel pop-up shop in SoHo, one feels strangely calm and charmed by the attractive elements surrounding them. It’s not like any other shop; it’s much more distinctive due to the presence of color and the small flower shop located in a corner of the store. The bags and shoes are neatly presented and organized by a degradation of colors composing of light neutrals, medium tones, and dark shades. Overall, the pop-up store impeccably portrays the style of the brand – slightly minimalistic with delicate details, classically elegant, and aesthetically pleasing.
There’s something about vintage silk scarves that completely changes outfits. Perhaps it’s the timeless and classic quality it has, or the versatility of their function. You can wear them as a neck scarf, or use it as a belt to make your look more original, or tying it around your wrist to make a unique bracelet. You can truly wear it however you want to wear it, there are no rules to silk scarves. I have a vivid memory of my grandmother wearing them whenever she thought her outfits were missing a pop of color, or a certain accessory. It instantly made her look much more sophisticated and polished, making her look glamorous, just like all grandmothers seem to be.
