10 items every New York woman has in her closet

We're not saying we all dress alike, but most New York women have these pieces in their wardrobe

By Jennifer Picht

New York fashion is tricky to describe, but one thing is certain: New Yorkers know how to dress. Truthfully, we believe the most stylish New Yorkers are the ones who don’t care about definitions or trends. The most fashionable folks fill their wardrobes with killer, one-of-a-kind finds from our city’s best thrift stores and vintage clothing shops. But after living in NYC for several years, we’ve noticed many of us (okay, we're calling out the ladies) tend to gravitate toward the same styles whenever we go shopping in NYC. It’s very likely that every New York woman owns these 10 items or something similar to the ones we listed below. Now, we’re not calling oursevles a bunch of "style biters." We simply wear similar closet essentials in our own unique way. Whether you want to up your fashion knowledge or confirm that you do, in fact, own these staples, read our style assessment below, girlfriend.
