98 Under-$100 Items in Every NYC Girl’s Shopping Cart
Last month we covered the massive pile of affordable items languishing in my cart, and now I'm setting my sights on the items NYC girls are considering buying. Although WWW HQ and yours truly are based in L.A., we luckily have an NYC office ripe for the tapping. It turns out the shopping carts of our East Coat editors are just as full as mine, with some key trends that are unique to the NYC style set. We've got leopard print, summer cardigans, high-cut bikinis, and so much more. Also of note: A low-heeled lifestyle seems to be key for locals—don't miss the kitten heels and low-heel block sandals. Without further ado, I present the 98 items that NYC girls have in their shopping carts now.
"When summer hits in New York, everyone is out making the most of the city. There's something about gingham that captures that joy." — Aemilia Madden, NYC editor
"I'm definitely a heels girl, but as a New Yorker as well, my preferred silhouette is one I can hit 10,000 steps in." — Gina Marinelli, NYC senior editor
"You can't walk a block without seeing a chic NYC girl wearing a top, dress, or bottom with button details. Extra points if you snag a matching set." — Lauren Eggertsen, NYC editor
"Blame it on my excitement for fall, but right now I'm obsessed with all things leopard. From bathing suits and dresses I can wear now to more cold-weather appropriate items I'm saving for the season ahead." — Nicole Eshaghpour, NYC market editor
"When I want to feel comfortable but look elevated, I opt for little kitten-heel sandals. Thanks to their simplicity, they pretty much go with everything." — Lauren Eggertsen, NYC editor
"Not only do I like the way a wrap skirt accents my waist, but I also love that the silhouette can usually be dressed up with a sleek button-down top for work or dressed down with a plain T-shirt for, well, any off-hour plans really." — Gina Marinelli, NYC senior editor
"I love these classic sweaters, but I prefer to wear them all buttoned up like a shirt. Creative button choices are encouraged." — Gina Marinelli, NYC senior editor
"I might have to stop this soon because I'm running out of real estate on my neck, but I can't get enough of layering necklaces right now. Especially anything with a personalized touch." — Nicole Eshaghpour, NYC market editor
"This summer, I've been obsessed with the tropical-shirt trend. They are perfect to throw on with jeans, over a slip dress, or knotted up into a crop top." — Lauren Eggertsen, NYC editor
"It's swimsuit season, and I've spent all summer in high-cut bikinis. So flattering." — Aemilia Madden, NYC editor
"For some reason, I've acquired an unusual amount of crystal belts lately and have found that they literally make any outfit 10 times cooler." — Nicole Eshaghpour, NYC market editor
"Romantic tops are my favorite summer piece when I need an outfit that will transition from day to night." — Aemilia Madden, NYC editor
"Slip dresses are perfect for the hot NYC summers. I dress mine up with a chain belt and heels and down with sneakers and a knotted white tee on top." — Lauren Eggertsen, NYC editor
"Vintage-inspired high-waisted jeans are the only denim style I wear. Flattering and comfortable!"— Aemilia Madden, NYC editor
"While I'll never not love a classic gold earring, currently I'm obsessed with all manner of colorful, playful resin pairs that make a statement." — Gina Marinelli, NYC senior editor
