I'm a 26 year old who is probably going to spend time at a Broadway show or 2 and a night out with my friends. I'd like a piece or 2 that can transition nicely from day to night to avoid having to pack my whole closet. What are some fun New York fashions that will allow me to look like I belong in the city? Thanks so much, you guys are fantastic."
Dearest Kate! Carlota here. I'm a local in the NY area so I can definitely help you fit in fashionably. Since you'll be tons of walking, I highly recommend bringing a pair of flip flops as well as stylish shoes. Use the flip flops during the day and then switch into the others for night. Here are some items I picked for you. Enjoy your trip and have a fabulous time! XOXO
