My Times Square Style: Bright Lights Big City Fashion
Over the course of the last eight months, I have visited The Big Apple three times with no signs of stopping. During each visit, I’ve stayed near Times Square in order to soak in the sights and sounds and wonderfulness of it all. Of course I am showing my tourist colors since Times Square isn’t a place city dwellers and locals like to inhabit. But, I don’t mind looking a little green. I can never pass up the chance to spend some time in one of the busiest places on earth, while taking in all that it has to offer. I am not ashamed to say that I absolutely love Times Square. The lights, energy, and massive crowds always have me coming back for more.
My travel style has certainly evolved over time, and when I visit New York City, I often opt for pieces that are comfy. Rompers, skirts, leotards, and simple dresses are usually my wardrobe of choice. And when hitting Times Square, I want to look fabulous but also need to be functional too. So I am sharing a bit of my Times Square style in order to get you thinking of simple yet appealing pieces that are perfect to walk in, and are photo shoot fresh just in case you plan on taking a selfie or three.
Dress for Success.
Dresses are perfect for travel and are easy to roll and pack. And because it’s one piece, it doesn’t require too much in your luggage, so that is a win/win. For a recent trek to Times Square, I wore a cute black and white pattern number that made me feel cute, but also comfortable. I added some gladiator flats to complete the look and presto—I was able to walk around Times Square looking every bit of the fashionista.
I blogged about maxis being a #1 travel style option before, so it comes as no secret that wearing one in Times Square isn’t only smart, but a must! You can dress them up or down, too. In this look, I tied around a plaid shirt just in case it got chilly after the sun went down. And it also added a little “urban-ness” to my overall attire.
A little color won’t hurt nobody. And even though there are plenty of lights in Times Square, showing off some color is the way to go. In this look, I paired an electric blue leotard with a simple black skirt. The police officers are sold separately. 🙂
I am a huge fan of rompers. And they make excellent travel wear, too. For my most recent trip to New York, I decided on this black and white romper to do some Times Square people watching in. Rompers can be an awesome travel staple.
So if you are hitting Times Square in warmer climate months, I hope that my Times Square Style helps you select some fashionable pieces that will allow you to be comfortable and chic.
