Since I’ve been living the life of a commuter, I’ve been witness to many a style-flub. However, this post is featuring some of the best trends that I’ve seen while I’ve been working in Brooklyn. Of course I’m in the office for all of my work day & only get to see the culture & residents when I’m walking to & from the subway, but also, I’m inspired to start getting my own closet ready for spring. Not to mention, it’s been quite some time since I’ve featured a post in NYC Street Style!
We can start putting away those heavy knit tights, but still embrace fashionable hosiery with the double fishnet full tights ($11.83) from Express, which are perfect for adding a little edge to a pastel sheath dress, or for night when going out with the girls in mini skirt & one-shoulder top. Also, these tights are currently marked down 30% from their original $16.90 price tag!
I’m all about flats these days since my hectic schedule isn’t high heel-friendly, but I’ve seen plenty of designer-inspired styles, much like the Holtan flats ($14.98) @ALDO. They make me think of Dolce & Gabbana’s entire starry-print collection from last year!
A denim jacket never goes out of style & the ladies out Brooklyn & city commuters know it! On casual days, I see all sorts of denim outerwear around me, but there’s nothing quite like the classic & chic way this denim jacket ($49.50) pairs with a graphic tee & some skinny jeggings. It’s from American Eagle Outfitters & if you check out their site today, there’s a 25% off + FREE SHIPPING special going on right now!
The sales & deals don’t stop, especially when you’re gonna need some sunglasses to protect your eyes from the harsh sunlight that’s making this spring feel so heavenly! I love The Limited‘s debut sunglasses ($26.90), but don’t be discouraged by the price since the store is celebrating the holiday weekend with a sitewide 40% off sale! I’ve seen so many different types of shades while in Brooklyn, but nothing beats an over-sized tortoise-shell!
Lastly, spring is all about pops of color & why not take advantage of that with your accessories? You can wear this Relic grommet striped belt ($24.00) from Kohl’s in place of a belt on a printed sundress, with a classic & crisp white shirtdress, or with a cardigan, jeans, & wedges look.
