Here’s the ultimate guide on how to dress like a New Yorker in Leather-
Off late, New York offices have made semi formals a go to for employees by relaxing dressing norms. The employees seem to be taking it in stride and going all out to create a niche for self-expression. So if your office has also welcomed this reform then get going with it like the New Yorker’s do.
You can experiment with your regular business outfit. Pair that basic jeans and tee with a leather jacket for a classy-cool impact. Make sure you adorn leather jackets of soft color like light blue, peach and celadon. These colors will maintain the subtlety of your semi-formal look and be appropriate office wear that is anything but garish.
The blacks and the white never went out of style. Keep that is mind and reach for the white, off white or even cream chiffon shirt hanging at the back of your closet. Crisp it up and pair with black leather pants, joggers, bootlegs, skinnies, whatever you fancy today. Keep the accessories in monotone and jewelry minimal to keep it updated.
Need an outfit for a party? Team leather with lace for an edgy yet enchanting look, perfectly put together. Play with softness of tulle to bring the rock princess in you. Don’t forget those thigh high slits are all the punk rage right now.
The ladies in New Yorker never shy away from showing some leg. If you too have legs that go on for days then pair your casual tee with mini leather skirt. Pastels and shades of brown are ideal for this season. What’s more, add cozy layers and dark stockings for the perfect winter evening look.
Colors of fall in leather pants is the ultimate high. Wear them skinny, wide legged, high waisted or low slung. You will never be bored.
Pair a feminine flowing gown with a leather vest or jacket and embrace the edgy sophistication. Don’t want to be over dressed? Jackets do the trick on summery maxi day dresses too.
With a leather jacket, you also wear an edgy attitude over your shoulders. But edgy is not all you can be. Bring out the fun, flirty girl in you with bold colors. Pair black leather bomber with a bright floral knee-length dress. Frilly skirts and even skaters and midi can turn heads. Don’t forget to pair it with peep toes and reflective glares for the ultimate #cutenessoverload.
Women can not only be feminine, glamorous or elegantly dressed, in their pencil skirt and sky high heels but a section of New Yorkers take pride in being slightly edgy may be even a bit boisterous. Attitude here is best showcased with a biker jacket. Pair a black leather jacket over ripped jeans and leather boots, to get the look right. Accessorize your jacket with studs and other embellishments and go for chunky statement pieces to make the look positively punk. If its minimal elegance you’re after give the trims a miss with sharp cuts and feminine heel. Also, who doesn’t like some biker awesomeness especially with Uptown chic?
