Oh New York, you had our hearts at hello! The city that served as the backdrop for our all-time favourite Sex and The City, has a street style unique to its five boroughs. Easy, chic and always in complete defiance of the weather gods, New York’s fashion originals know how to put their best face forward. While a chic all-black wardrobe has become a Manhattan signature of sorts, trends do play an important part in the style make-up. And the best time to spot them is when the fashion packs descend on the city for fashion week. Winter whites, pastels and patterns play with statement heels and lust worthy accessories with the bright pop hues commandeering attention. And it’s not all about high fashion labels, NY is the epitome of mixing designerwear with high street fashion for a unique street vibe.
Can’t live without pieces at affordable prices, is the driving force of Vero Moda. The label of choice for fashion conscious young women, Vero Moda stocks a mix of on trend designs and essentials that make for stylish ensembles.
