New York fashion: Which trademark New Yorker style are you?


New York is chock-a-block with fashion inspiration. But it's no secret that it can be a mixed bag of style depending on where you are. There's the Sohoians (is that a thing?) with their boutique, ahead of the curb, edgy chic ensembles. And then there's the Upper East Side socialites and Chanel-obsessed. Or across the bridge is the Brooklyn flair of quirky musos and alternative dressers. Whatever style screams true to you, you'll find it in New York.

Soho: Layering oversized knits over pencil skirts are so-freaking-right-now. But to team that with the latest C&M boots and an all white hue ... well now you're just showing off.
