Street Style: Take An NYC Standby Up A Notch

The "New Yorkers always wear black" myth resonates most loudly during winter. Sometimes it's true, we feel a distinct pull towards dark colors, often rushing to the dressing room with various garments in the same hue. It's not necessarily a purposeful thing, but test our weekly wardrobe and you'll find the shade pervasive in our looks (and closets).
So, while it's not unusual to peep a great all-black ensemble on these streets, model Rachel Scott got our attention for nailing the look in an entirely effortless way. Black leggings? Check. Black lace up boots? Check. Long black coat, bag, and scarf? Check and check and check. What really works here is the variation of shades and textures, with Rachel's sheer, navy dress. We love the way color combo and the lightness of the fabric really breaks up the rest of her outfit. Plus, there's no better way to highlight a perfect red lip than with the NYC uniform. We're into it— so sue us!
