The wonderful, whacky, and wild outfits worn by NYC's chicest on NYC's everyday catwalk: the streets. They don't call it 'The Concrete Jungle' for nothing. (Snapped from behind to protect the fabulous).
When we spotted this lovely lady on her way to Date Night, no doubt, we couldn't help but snap this photo! The dress she was wearing was really unlike ANY dress we have seen before. How perfect is the silky fabric as it sways in the delicious summer breeze? Wherever she was headed, we are sure a very, very good time was had by this belle of the ball!
Did this beautiful dress inspire you for the rest of your summer parties and date nights?
We are certainly inspired!
We couldn't find an exact replica dress online but if you spot one, please let us know! In the meantime, here are two dresses at different price points that have a similar easy and flowy summer aesthetic.
There are two recent trends that we would like to highlight: rompers and platform shoes, but you knew that already!
We ran into these two lovely ladies on two consecutive mornings last week and just had to share.
One paired an easy top with white pants (the ultimate summer pant color) and finished off with black platform shoes du jour and a black tote bag. The second fashionista chose a beautiful embroidered romper with long sleeves.
Let's take a moment to recognize just how COOL rompers with long sleeves are. So chic. She finished the outfit with flats and a beautiful Prada bag with some cute Fendi pompoms.
In a world that is hurting and needs a good dose of HAPPY, the Girl With This Stuffed Bag (perhaps this should be turned into a novel!) certainly knows the antidote! While animal backpacks aren't mainstream in our fashion today in America, perhaps they will be taking over tomorrow!
Who said we all have to grow up?
Keeping this outfit nice, light and simple is definitely the way to go. Girly, cute, and easy breezy! Perfect for a summer stroll.
We promise that we'll keep you beautiful kids updated on all the crazy fashions we see on the streets of beautiful, splendid, chic, and sometimes smelly NYC. Like this wonderful lady here. Who knew that neon green and purple work so well together?
We here at The Drastically Blog love commitment and confidence at any age. After all, we only get one life, lets LIVE IT! We love some sass and Joie de Vivre (cue The Nanny theme song here). Spotted on: West 26th Street and 6th Ave, April 10th, 2016.
Who knew that Tie-Dye could ever be sexy?
Gone are the Tie-Dye T-shirts of the past that girls used as beach cover-ups and in are Tie-Dye patterns in modern, flirty styles. Take a look at this girl on the streets of Manhattan doing it right! This romper is just enough sexy showing leg, and modest with the bell sleeves. All in all, a perfect outfit for the summer and beach season that kicked off on Memorial Day.
We were idly strolling near Grand Central last week when this casually chic woman walked by with the cutest backpack seen in years! Impossibly adorable and perfectly fitting to wear to the office, we just love the dark apricot color, zipper design, and fold-over functions.
We had to track it down for you, dear reader, and track it down we did!
It is called "The Jetsetter Convertible Backpack" by Henri Bendel that turns into a crossbody and comes with a detachable strap. Plus it is water-resistant, and can be purchased/ordered here.
The design reminds us a bit of something Kate Spade might have come out with. Fittingly feminine and functional. What can be better than that?
Don't you just LOVE it? TELL US in the comments below!
Also, we love her pants and how she wore them together with a navy blazer and blue-ish/ navy tote. A perfectly stand-out outfit. Gotta love New York!
We couldn't help but snap this lovely girl wearing the loveliest of outfits we've seen out recently.
She is doing everything right and you must agree that this outfit is pure perfection. We especially love that her book matches so wonderfully to her coat and the gold kicks just make you want to run out and get a pair yourself! Fabulous.
