There’s no season New Yorkers look forward to more than spring. After a long winter, city folks are suffering from prolonged cabin fever, and eager to show some skin.
The West Village, replete with NYU students catching sun in Washington Square Park and style mavens bustling down Bleecker, lights up on an early spring day as New Yorkers finally get a chance to toss out their parkas. This latest edition of Shop the Look, in partnership with our friends at YOOX, lets you shop this West Village round-up. So, what’s on trend this spring?
Athleisure continues to dominate the streets, as Manhattanites elevate their gym looks with their best handbags, sunglasses, and sleek hairdos. And because the city is so walkable, New Yorkers keep it casual with a solid pair of sneakers that will last all season. The groovy, bohemian history of the West Village, a hot spot for music, literature, and art is just as colorful as the people who currently inhabit it. For style inspiration, shop the looks below and you too can dress like these folks in the West Village.
