What To Pack For a Fall Trip to NYC – New York City

Ah, Fall in New York City. Gone are the scorching summer temperatures and the oppressive humidity, graciously replaced with crisp autumn mornings and perfectly sunny afternoons. The yellow and red leaves light up the streets and turn Central Park into a picturesque Fall oasis. There’s really no better time to explore the Big Apple (with a spiced latte in hand). Whether you’re visiting friends, hitting the museums, or indulging in the NYC brunch scene, you better be ready to do so in style. With fashion week kicking off the Fall season, this is the city where you can pull out all the stops! It’s impossible to be overdressed in NYC! Who else is ready for denim, oversized sweaters, blazers and all things leather? Plus, fall means boot season, baby! Here’s what to wear and pack for a weekend in New York City!

What to wear: Roaming the streets

Think street chic, but also comfy! Comfy shoes are a must if you’re exploring NYC, because you will be walking… a lot.

Leather jacket might be a bit more expensive, but they never go out of style. I still have a brown leather jacket I’ve had for 14 years, no joke. It was the first leather jacket my parents gifted me and I still treasure it to this day!

What to Wear in NYC: Hitting the museums, or a business meeting with a colleague
