Spring 2009

accessories & color inspiration


New Yorkers have experienced an unusually chilly May. (Hey, isn’t is supposed to be nearly 70 degrees by now?) Nevertheless, followers of fashion in three of the city’s trendiest neighborhoods can’t wait to break out the most fun, bright colors in their wardrobes. Here, in Nolita, a vivid yellow trench coat “springs” to life on a cool afternoon. Or, why not mix up the seasons by pairing a solid scarf with a vibrant T-shirt?


New York’s Meatpacking District is unquestionably a shoppers’ paradise. Here, we spotted a unique accessories combination: a classic black Parisian-esque beret paired with a fringed scarf. For a contrasting pop of color, a bright yellow cross-body bag adds the perfect finishing touch. And who wouldn’t love this boldly hued Buffalo check wrap?


Although the hype surrounding the hip Brooklyn neighborhood Williamsburg has died down over the past few years, its trendiest residents haven’t lost their edge. Denim remains the staple of every hipster’s wardrobe, and is complimented perfectly with an oversized leather bag (upper left) in bold turquoise. And this hipster’s fuchsia-colored hair (upper right) is an accessory unto itself! editorial credit: James Boone
