This look, or some version of it, has become my go to for evenings in NYC. I am always so inspired when I’m submersed in New York fashion. There are plenty of opportunities for over the top, trendy, fashion forward looks, but there’s also something to be said for the no fuss or frills edgy vibes. I love the ease of a basic tee and leather jacket, the layer for nights where you need it, and sneakers because New York.
I had a faux leather jacket for years and barely rocked it, but after my first trip to the big apple, I knew it was a necessity, and my staple was revived. I have since upgraded during this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (although still repping those faux feels), and I loved being able to take it for Fashion Week.
Cassidy and I were really hoping we were going to be able to make it one more time this year for Christmas because we’ve never been, but it just didn’t work out with all the transitions. There’s always next year, right?! I guess two times in one year will have to do, considering we’ve also been four times in the last three years… so I’m not complaining. We’re still working on where we’re headed this late winter/spring, but I of course foresee a trip to our favorite city at some point in 2019.
I’ve shared some of my favorite vegan leather jackets below because you just can’t street style in NYC without one.
