The weather is quite unpredictable these days, but the fashionistas of New York City are still working their style by sporting one important accessory, the umbrella.
Unusual to carry around in the summer time, however, you would be completely soaked with out one; trust me I know, having had to flat iron my hair twice. Venturing out into the streets this week, I looked to see how others were incorporating rain weather into their style.
This man reminded me of a cartoon character, or of someone you just had to know. His look seemed vintage and timeless with the vest and fedora, yet he kept it comfortable with sporty sneakers. The striped blue and white umbrella went along perfectly with his quirky personality, while adding an interesting twist.
Many refer to the city as a concrete jungle, however, the animals weren’t rained out when I spotted this woman’s funky leopard print leggings. Paired with a green shrunken parka, this was a stylish way to stay dry while and still look chic!
If you need an outfit to wear to your summer internship or corporate job, this is the look for you! This women’s printed trousers scream fun while the white blazer keeps the look fresh. If you choose to wear thong sandals as she does, just make sure they are comfortable for standing for long lengths of time.
So previously the looks I spotted were more covered up, but let’s not forget it is summer after all. One of the reasons I love this woman’s look is because she wasn’t afraid to wear color. The yellow shorts are the stand out piece of the outfit, while the gray tank complements the bright color rather than competes with it. Using subtle colors with a bright color allows your look to appeal modern and exciting.
Lastly, in this look the oxfords and button up shirt worked together to portray a prepster cool look, while the orange scarf complements this women’s skin tone and keeps her dry. Similar to the woman above, the pop of color is the perfect way to brighten up a bland look or to cheer yourself up on a rainy day.
