I am coming to NYC for the first time this September and I have no idea what to pack! I am a college senior from the University of Georgia and I am coming with members of our Advertising Club to tour some agencies. We will be in NYC from September 11th -15th. The last thing I want to do is look like some kind of country bumpkin. Help! Also, what’s the weather like in New York in September? Any suggestions woud be greatly appreciated. – Rachel
As someone who was once told that my jersey jumpsuit was too dressy for D.C., I understand the anxiety dressing for another city can bring. That being said, fashion in NYC is all about personal style. You might see a preppy WASP standing next to a goth, who is sandwiched in by an editor of a fashion glossy. Seriously, anything goes as long as you have confidence. One rule you must follow, though, in order to not look like a “country bumpkin” is: avoid oversized college sweatshirts and fanny packs. Those are dead tourist giveaways. Keep clicking for ideas on what to wear in NYC.
