STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: NYC Grunge

New York City: the fashion capital of the United States and home to over 8 million people. There is so much character and love in New York. Once hurricane Sandy hit, everything in the greatest city was put on pause. Everyone in the Empire State came together to help one another after losing homes and power. Some fashion royalty had to relocate, including: Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld. This Fashionista showed her affection for New York this week on the streets of Chicago.

There are so many different elements to this outfit, but they all come together and work perfectly with one another. The oversized sweater downplayed the John Lennon inspired T-shirt. The floral print in the sweater adds great fall colors to the rather neutral look. The Buddha necklace adds a certain Zen vibe to the whole outfit.  I am obsessed with the grungy look it is perfect for fall and ideal for going to class in. It takes a certain hairstyle to pull of a beanie and this Fashionista has the perfect hair. That Alternative Apparel beanie is cute and great for the weather.

New York City is starting to see brighter days, finally. Fashion and style are some things a hurricane can’t destroy. People will always have their sense of style and it can’t be taken away from them. New York will soon be back to its somewhat normal ways and fashion will be hitting the streets again. In the mean time, here in Chicago and across the country, it is time to bundle up in the most stylish way!
