This young lady has a very tough, yet feminine exterior. Her baggy jeans, adorned with holes and worn denim are rolled up just above the calf. Bloused over their waistband is a black cutoff tee, with a tribal print on the front. These two pieces alone would be enough to look intimidating, but she knows how to turn them into a stylish ensemble. Adding gold jewelry including a nameplate necklace and gold watch, as well as platform shoes, helps turn this bruiser into a style icon. The haircut tops off the look, walking the fine line between street punk and high fashion.
As the end of August quickly approaches, and the Summer heat begins to fade, you must take a page out of this young woman’s book and savor those rays while you still can. She sports a relaxed look, perfect for the emerald lawn at Bryant Park. She matches her black midi skirt perfectly with the stripes of her frayed jersey tank, as well as her strapped sandals. The large gold chain is a standout accessory framed perfectly by the neckline of her tank. The black bow in her long braided hair gives the outfit that little extra.
This young man has a carefree aura oozing out of him. From head to toe he is truly an individual. He sports a worn denim button up with the sleeves rolled up, atop a low hanging scoop neck tee. The cropped, patchwork pants have a wandering seam and are filled with both color and texture. On his feet is a pair of intricately woven loafers that somehow fit in with the rest of the eclectic ensemble. The gold nose ring goes perfectly with his gold necklace, watch and bracelets, while still playing off his plethora of tattoos. The undercut hairstyle, with its dreaded top finishes off the look, and reveals an otherwise hidden tattoo.
This fine gentleman has a learned look. His dress and his demeanor remind me of a southern blues musician, maybe with a little more color. He wears a green polo shirt tucked into the waist of his pleated, khaki slacks. The loose fitting pants are held up by a set of pink suspenders, giving his top a little more color. His dark brown loafers look like they have walked many a street in their time. To top off the look he has a straw fedora on his head, and a large hardcover book in his hand.
This young woman was walking around Union Square looking for subjects to shoot. Her short sleeve dress is colored with a beautiful, abstract floral pattern and tied at the waist with a skinny, tan leather belt. She uses a 35 mm film camera, which is something not usually seen in this digital age.
These two fedora-wearing gentlemen discuss their poses after a quick set of photographs. The photographer, on the right, sports a fitted denim button down and seersucker pants over light brown loafers. His subject is Mr. Mort of MisterMort.com. Mr. Mort’s combination of the yellow button down underneath the royal blue and white sport coat is very nice and casual, especially when the seersucker shorts are added into the mix. He too sports a pair of loafers, but of a darker color.
The steps of Union Square are a great place to find unique individuals. This young man pulls out his inner Kid ‘n Play, imitating Kid’s signature hi-top haircut. His friend even helps to pick it out for him.
The star-crossed couple takes their unique variety of romance to the streets of SoHo. Romeo is dressed in a pair of power jeans lying atop brown dress shoes. A loose fitting navy blazer covers his loose grey t-shirt. His love sits upon a ledge wearing a pair of python print leggings underneath a pink tulle dress. They discuss their ill-fated relationship over a bottle of San Pellegrino and Sushi.
Oh shucks! It’s another Monday; the most dreaded day of the week. Coming off that lazy weekend is truly a bummer, but it’s time to be a productive member of society again. While your energy is still on the beach or by the pool, you can take a tip from this young woman. Her simple outfit is relaxed and easy, but still looks great. The combination of the sheer, wide leg pants and open-toe booties says “I want to be relaxed, without sacrificing my style.” She has rolled the waist of the pants to reveal the black undershorts, and tied the back of her white tank to create a custom fit. The wayfarer sunglasses are a perfect accessory to guard those sleepy, Monday eyes, until you are fully alert.
In New York City there are only so many places you can go to stay cool on these hot Summer days. The Washington Square fountain is one of those places, and today it was packed. This young woman is having a blast, dipping her feet in the refreshing water, while remaining cautious about the trim of her dress. The tank maxi dress is adorned with an abstract design that matches her expression perfectly. The side braided ponytail and neon trimmed wayfarers do a fantastic job of accentuating her youthful and joyous disposition.
