Whether you are headed to Brooklyn to feast on some Instagram-worthy cuisine at Smorgasburg or you are going uptown to get acquainted with the fashion exhibit at the MET (which is insane, by the way), there are many New York City weekend activities that call for cool outfits. But your outfit shouldn’t bog you down from a spontaneous picnic in Central Park or a stroll through SoHo. Stick to a minimalist outfit to maximize your weekend.
This Fashionista nailed the two-piece weekend look. On the bottom, she stuck with classic skinny jeans in a dark wash. Stick to a pair with a bit of stretch so it’s easy to move during each little outing. If you’re feeling summery, opt for a similar fit in a white or ecru color. These freshen and brighten up any daytime look—just bring a blanket to sit on during that picnic.
Minimalist outfits can be hard to pull off without looking bland, but this Fashionista got the right idea by pairing her classic denim with a standout tank top. This leather shirt is an easy upgrade from simpler summer tank tops in your wardrobe. The fit and feel makes it easy to pop on, while the dark green color is always a cool addition. Stick to a top with a leather front and cotton back to avoid overheating while you’re basking in the sun.
One Simple Change: This edgy top and bottom combination is also great for nighttime wear. Wear this on girls night out by swapping out the flat sandals for cool wedges. Ditch the sunglasses and ponytail, and you’ll be ready to hit the town in no time.
