Just got back from a few days in Boston. It was a great trip and I really enjoyed the big city and all the attractions and the food. I noticed as we were walking about, trying not to stand out as tourists, that there was a lot of good fashion in the metro area. Women were dressed in adorable skinny jeans with cute ballerina shoes, short dresses that were accessorized perfectly, cute tops layered just right (the weather could be a little cool). Now, there was a lot of "fashion don'ts" as well but overall, the big city urban look was great. I did notice that the later the evening, the shorter the dress! And I mean short, short dresses with high, high heels. And, these girls were taking the subway. They take their fashion seriously in the big city.
Some suggestions for getting that big city urban fashionista look:
Skinny jeans with ballerina flats
T-shirts layered with thin sweater or a scarf wrapped around your neck
Cute short dress with wedge heels
Most of all, it's an attitude towards fashion and wanting to look your best. Women of all shapes, sizes, age, etc. were on it in Boston and I was impressed. I probably spent more time people watching than learning about the history of our country but hey, I can always google anything I need to know. Fashion was living history that was happening all around me and I couldn't help myself. That counts, right?
