This is NYC Street Style 2017
Editorial Eclectic Style is my way of describing the fashion girls that roam the streets of NYC in all manner of texture, colors, prints and patterns with a mysterious photographer not far behind snapping pics that appear on WhoWhatWear.com.
These girls embody my childhood fantasy life. After graduating from FIT, they now live in Manhattan and work in fashion houses, PR agencies, as stylists or lifestyle bloggers. Their social influence earns gifted Gucci bags and they wear crop tops with gusto. They always have plenty of pocket cash to shop, dine and walk the High Line.
#IRL they may live with 4 other 20-somethings in a 600SF walk up way Uptown, but there is no disputing that NYC fashion girls influence trend cycles all over the world. The problem with trying to teach you their outfit formula is the simple fact they don't have one, which is also what makes them awesome.
The Editorial Eclectic Style Outfit Formula
After extensive Pinterest research, I have nailed down 5 key items to help you channel NYC Street Style in Spring 2017. Unless you actually live and work in fashion, I do not recommend you wear them all at once.
Editorial Eclectic Style Essential #1: Fur Lined Mule Loafers
These fuzzy puppies may be hibernation by mid May (I guarantee they'll emerge again in October), but right now, nearly every fashion girl on Pinterest is warming her toes in fur lined mule loafers - almost always crafted by Gucci (see #4).

Editorial Eclectic Style Essential #2: Wide Leg Pants
Our bevy of street style muses are totally over skinny jeans and welcomed this expansive pant silhouette as a breath of fresh fashion air. Incredulous? Wide legs paired with a slim top and flat sandals are surprisingly flattering.

Editorial Eclectic Style Essential #3: Statement Sleeves
Just like their Broome St. kissing counter parts, arm holes are huge this season! Another street style trend easy to pull of when paired with the right proportions. Feel free to pull out your skinny jeans for this look.

Editorial Eclectic Style Essential #4: Anything Gucci
Ever since British native Alessandro Michelle took over the house in 2015, Gucci is #everything with the in crowd. Thanks in part to the wild popularity of his whimsical Dionysus handbag collection, those ubiquitous fur lined loafers and an inspired collaboration with street style artist Gucci Ghost, under Michelle's direction, Gucci is THE luxury design house informing the moment. Hello wish list!
Editorial Eclectic Style Essential #5: Modern Trench
A refreshing spin on a classic staple and very much in line with maximalist vibe on the streets, Spring 2017s proper topper is a reimagined trench coat, usually oversized. Again, this trend is actually quite wearable if you keep the rest of your look streamlined.
