The Farfetch Getaway

Who isn't lusting over all the amazing destinations they want to try and visit this year? I know I certainly am and I have a whole bucket list full of amazing places I want to go to! One of the places near the top of the list is New York, especially since of the fashion and street style there.

First off, shoes! When your in a city, you know you'll be doing a lot of walking so flats are essential! Good sneakers and ballerina flats, such as these Jil Sander and Sophia Webster ones are perfect and can be worn at all times and styled both up and down. They are both a step away from the normal colours, so you will defiantly stand out in one of the fashion capitals. Of course, ankle boots are an absolute must - this is the footwear I practically live in! These Ginger & Smart ones are perfect for NYC with the stud detail, as they give a grunge yet classy feel. Of course, who can go to on a city break without Valentino heels?! Being black, they go with literally anything and everything and the cross detail gives them a little extra.
Next up bags and everyone knows, you can't just take one! The Chloe Drew bag is still a hugely
popular bag and has been brought into the new season with the use of rainbow quilting effect. This and the Valentino rock stud clutch are both perfect for evening meals, as they are small and look oh so stylish. The Stella McCartney backpack is perfect for long walks around the city and also for travel, as I leaves your hands free. The chain detail makes it a little different and the colour is bang on trend! Without a doubt, my favourite bag is the Saint Laurent small sac de jour and I love the cream with the snakeskin effect handles. This is the perfect all round bag and looks so stylish.
Deciding what clothes to take away is always a challenge, so I always take a bit of everything! A coat/jacket will always be need, especially if your going out at night. Jeans are also a must, as they can be worn so many different ways and these ones from J Brand are not only a celeb favourite but fit so well! I think this goes for the Alexander Wang shorts too - I love the high waisted design and distressed detail, giving the off duty model feel. You can't go to New York without a couple of dresses! The Balmain woven dress if perfect for an evening, whereas the Diane Von Furstenberg dress can be worn at all times! You need sweatshirts and blouses too, as they are so easy to wear and just throw on.

So, there you have it, just a few of the items I would take and wear in New York. If you are struggling on what to pack, take a look at the Farfetch Style Hub which is full of useful tips for wherever you are traveling to.

What would you pack for a trip to New York?

  1. I've got black ankle boots just like that! I'd go minimal with packing so I could bring stuff back!

    1. They are so gorgeous and yes in America that is always a good idea!

  2. I would probably pack my entire closet because I'm a terrible packer. I need a pair of ankle boots in my life

    1. I have so many pairs of ankle boots but I'm a useless packer too!

  3. Definitely flats for NYC, you do so much walking! And layers, the subway/shops/streets all have dramatic temperature changes between them, so making sure you can keep warm or get cool quickly in important!

    1. I think you need flat on any city break! Never thoughts about that, but will bare in mind for when I do get the chance to get there!
