Tonight, Parisian Runway is bringing two cities head to head on street style: New York City v. Miami. Of course it has be a battle between these two cities! They’re both homes to me. First up, NYC..
Right now in the city that never sleeps, there’s a lot of textural feels going on. Mixing velvet with knits and leather? Go for it! Shearling? Abso-freaking-lutely. It’s all about playing with colors and textures that aren’t supposed to match but oddly make sense. And the layers. Yes! More layers. MORE LAYERS! Hair is natural as is the face and nails. It really is “all about the clothes”.
On the southern end of the East Coast, Miami is still keeping things hot! The Latina flavor is always spicy with short shorts, big prints, long locks, and red lips. These girls are all about the “femme fatale”.
Both cities play with proportion. Both love to experiment with color. So, who is the winner? Well, here at Parisian Runway, we have to give it to New York City. There is a refinement with the playfulness that keeps it classy but still fun and flirty. Long live the Empire State!
