In a city like New York, each neighborhood doesn’t just have its own personality, it has its own sense of style. If you live in the Big Apple or are shopping for someone who does, this gift guide is designed for you.

Maybe you aspire to the city’s fast-paced, ultra-hip aesthetic—if so, you can shop the looks below to capture the personality-driven style that New York neighborhoods have to offer.

1. Brooklyn — Shop a vintage look

These vintage finds come from Vestaire Collective, like all their secondhand offerings, are guaranteed authentic, checked for quality control, and can be mixed and matched to re-create Brooklyn’s quirky yet sleek sense of style. If you’re hunting for that hard-to-find vintage treasure, shop this look.

4. West Village — Shop a bohemian look

More is more when it comes to a unisex bohemian look. Layer a cape over a tunic, and finish with black cigarette pants to rock a look that’s quintessentially West Village. From music to literature to the historic architecture, this neighborhood has a notable New York legacy that vibes with those people in your life who march to their own drums.
