At an eager age of 18, I moved to New York City and as most style-obsessed do, studied fashion design. Throughout the years, I’ve seen trends come and go and I’ve undoubtedly worn some regrettable pieces (honestly, who hasn’t?). From the revival of the 80’s trend to the brief return of low-rise denim, it’s hard to avoid the latest trends and fashion-trys when your backyard is essentially a runway. After nearly a decade in New York, I’ve accumulated quite the wardrobe.
I’ve inherently become a New Yorker. I like my coffee black, I am in a constant rush for literally no reason, I can hail a cab with my eyes closed, and my wardrobe consists of a plethora of dark neutrals. Somewhere between 2010 and now, I’ve grown fond of a select few, tried and true pieces in my closet. The kind of wardrobe staples that are worth investing in because season after season, they have withstood the test of time. There’s a common saying: you aren’t a true New Yorker until you’ve lived here for 10 years. Well, I counter and say you aren’t a true New Yorker until you have a variation of these six fashion items in your wardrobe.
