NYC Fall Packing List

New York weather can be unpredictable–– so far, fall has been pretty warm, but it's supposed to get cold this week. My biggest piece of advice for packing for NYC is paying attention to the weather forecast a few days before you go and to pack layers. Layers are truly magical because you can adjust your outfit as needed. Whenever I pack for a trip, I try to pack quality over quantity–– pack really good staple pieces that you can style various ways so you don't end up filling up a 50lb suitcase! Also, these pieces would make for a great fall capsule wardrobe. I am currently trying to rebuild my fall wardrobe myself, and I am going to start with a few pieces below.

Suggested items:

Bottoms: Dark skinny jeans / black skinny jeans (good for day and night)
Shoes: Comfortable yet stylish tennis shoes / Black booties (also good for day to night)
Accessories: Scarf / A functional yet stylish bag / A black belt / Bracelet or simple jewelry (optional)
Warmth: Cardigan / Sweater / Warm coat
Layering basics: Black turtleneck tee / White long sleeve for layering



  1. Turtlenecks have been trendy for the past few seasons. I have no idea how to style them. Do they look best with a cardigan thrown over and paired with some jeans and booties?

    1. I'm going to blog about that next week! Stay tuned. I just have to shoot it first :)
