All black everything is the stereotypical uniform of New Yorkers. Well, being here for 2 years, I can tell you that majority of New Yorkers wear all black and yes, I am one of them. When I first moved to New York City, I didn’t understand this monochromatic style until I realized how practical and fashionably fierce this trend is! First of all, black can be worn for any season so don't think it's it's just for fall/winter. When visiting around Spring time, I highly suggest trading in those cute heels for very comfortable shoes because you will be doing lots of walking in the city. Also, always bring a light jacket because the weather in New York City is bipolar. I know a lot of Tripanistas might think that wearing all black in the Spring is very strange, but here are a couple of reasons why New Yorkers love black no matter what season is it: 1) No color matching here - That’s the great thing about the color black; you don’t have to think when putting together your outfits. You can literally throw anything black on and it will all go together! 2) Different shades of black…Who cares! – Faded, light or jet black, it really doesn’t matter because like I said above, black always matches! Personally, I love mixing different shades of black together because it adds more texture and personality to an outfit. 3) Black will never go out of style– For centuries, black has always been a staple color in the fashion industry. The color black will never go out. From your favorite pair of black jeans to that little black dress, black is here to stay. 4) Basic but Fierce – Black is chic, clean and sexy all at the same time. It can be accessorize with statement necklaces, bracelets and rings, easily transforming an outfit from day to night. Just change your flats to heels and you’re ready to paint the city red! Hope you all enjoyed my post! Just remember, when in doubt….wear black.
