While it may vary from city to city, i.e. New York City to Los Angeles, there are some basic and essential rules that any city girl should follow.
Always Have a Pair of Flats – Like Always.
This one especially goes out to the NYC girls! Since your neck of the woods is considered highly walkable – you should already have this engraved into your brains. Always carry an extra pair of flats in your bag or even your car. You never know when a stiletto might break or if a new blister emerges.
Leather, Layers & Lipstick.
If you’re going to rock it like a real city girl, remember these three thing: Layers reign supreme, lipstick counts as an accessory, and you can never go wrong with leather.
Oversized Totes = City Girls Best Friend
This only makes the most sense living in the city. A huge tote can store everything you could possibly need and should be every city girl’s go-to accessory.
Shoes Are Totally Worth The Investment.
Every city girl knows that shoes are the last thing you should cut corners with. Invest in your footwear! Not only are high quality shoes essential for walking/running around the city but quality of your shoes can immediately elevate—and/or downgrade—an outfit completely.
When in Doubt, Go Black.
One thing every city girl can say “Bible” to is that black outfits are oh so common. For the days that you just can’t seem to get it together, an all-black look in the best route to take. Not only is it classic, it’s safe and it’s universally flattering. Now that’s a triple threat!
