White Laced Off The Shoulder Summer Dress

New York City can get quite hot and humid in the summer, however, it can also get a bit chilly especially when it rains.  I suggest dressing according to the weather.  I was lucky enough to get some sunshine and a bit of humidity while I was in New York, though it did rain a few days.

What to wear in New York City in the summer?  I was wearing one of my favorite laced-up off the shoulder summer dresses while sightseeing around Soho, Manhattan.  If you didn’t know yet, Soho is by far my favorite neighborhood in New York.  It has a combination of chic, boho, casual, and young vibes.

While walking around Soho, Manhattan, I was impressed by the neighborhood which is well-known for cobblestone streets, restored old yet rustic buildings, and some modern chic architecture too.  Soho also has many narrow sidewalks and streets, trendy restaurants, chic apartments, boutique offices as well as trendy boutiques.

This off the shoulder laced-up summer dress that I wore while touring around Soho was the perfect outfit to go with the neighborhood.

A black Brixton fiddler hat is not only suitable for winter, but it can certainly be worn for the summer.  I was wearing my favorite Brixton fiddler hat to add a bit of more style and accessory to my outfit.


Thankfully, it didn’t rain but wearing my hat did somehow keep my hair in place as it was slightly windy in some parts of Soho.

I love hats, so I definitely love to add a hat to my style at any time of the year.  Would you wear a Brixton fiddler hat during the summer?

Flat Sandals – What To Wear In New York City

In case you didn’t know that New York City is best to see on foot.  I was wearing comfortable flat sandals everywhere I went.  Wearing comfortable and stylish flat sandals will certainly get you to different neighborhoods of New York without feeling the need to sit and relax every 10 minutes.

I literally walked everywhere for hours with these comfortable and chic flat sandals while I was touring around Manhattan, New York City.  I highly recommend wearing comfortable flat sandals with padded insoles, and a secure strap.

You can save some money by taking the subway and walking everywhere in order to see most of New York City.  You would need to walk up and down the stairs in order to get through to the subway and trains, so ensure that you wear the most comfortable pair of flat shoes or flat sandals.

New York City is indeed one of the most fashionable capital cities, however, you don’t need to dress up like a fashion model.  You will be walking most of the time especially if you decide not to spend a ton of money on Uber, Taxis, or Trains. 

It’s more about being comfy, relaxed, and trying to experience being a New Yorker and seeing the neighborhood on foot while window shopping, going out to lunch, casual dining, taking photos, and touring around.

Comfy, however, does not necessarily mean sloppy.  You can always wear the most comfortable pair of shoes and outfits, and yet look classy and chic.  Even if you just want to look casual but put together, just pay attention to how your pair different pieces together, your grooming, and the types of trendy accessories you can add to your style.  Just focus on that, and you’ll no doubt be all set.

I suggest wearing some of these comfortable and stylish flat sandals so you can enjoy walking around New York City.

Comfortable & Stylish Crossbody Bag

We can’t walk around without a comfortable and stylish crossbody bag.  I was using one of my favorite black crossbody bags that’s quite small, chic, compact and yet it has enough space to store all the essentials that I needed to take with me while sightseeing in New York City.

I actually prefer to carry a small crossbody bag these days especially when I’m traveling and sightseeing, as it’s easier to move around.  And on top of that, I won’t get tempted to carry more stuff that I don’t need.

A black crossbody bag never goes out of fashion.  You can easily pair it with any outfit or a pair of shoes.  A black crossbody bag is also quite chic, and elegant while at the same time you can also pair it with your casual outfits or dress it up with a formal dress.
