The NYC neighborhood of SoHo is the height of fashion and shopping. Take a look around and be impressed by the SoHo street style of those around you! This is one of my favorite neighborhoods in New York, both for the shopping and for its roots as an artists haven. I teamed up with Maria Sanchez of York College to show you the SoHo street style.
For this shoot, I went with a sleek black look which is so iconic of New Yorkers. I’m wearing a black dress coat and black skinny dress pants (which are so comfortable you’ll swear you’re wearing yoga pants!). I paired this with black leather riding boots, my staple shoes for the wintertime. I added a little color to the ensemble with my knit top, warming up the black-on-black with a hint of burgundy. And of course, the look wouldn’t be complete without a statement necklace!
We took this look to the streets of SoHo, a neighborhood roughly defined between W Houston St, Avenue of the Americas, Canal St, and Crosby St. To get here, take the subway to the Spring St stop. And then walk yourself right over to Balthazar Boulangerie on Spring St for a croissant! You’ll swear you’ve stepped right into a French pastry shop. Or better yet…when I was sitting outside Balthazar enjoying my pastry and espresso, I was approached by a French man who just had to tell me that there was a better boulangerie. He said I’m sorry but the better croissants are just up the street, I think you should really go there instead. Curious, not wanting to ignore the pastry advice of an opinionated French man, I went, and yes it was absolutely divine. Check out Ceci-Cela on Spring Street, you won’t regret it.
The main street for shopping is Broadway, so that’s a good place to start! SoHo has some amazing restaurants and you could really do some serious damage to your diet here! Be sure to check out Blue Ribbon Sushi on Sullivan St for the best sushi I’ve ever tasted (and it’s where I learned to love sushi!). Keep it healthy at the Chobani yogurt bar on W Broadway & Prince, where you have lots of sweet and savory yogurt creation bowls to choose from. Or jump on the cold-pressed juice trend and visit Juice Press on Prince St (promise you’ll feel healthier after you go here!). But don’t forget to treat yourself to a French macaroon at Laduree on W Braodway, and if it’s nice out you can dine in their garden patio.
Take a walk over to W Broadway St to see a nice view of the One World Trade Center building, NYC’s newest skyscraper. Check out the newest holistic exercise trend at Soul Cycle on Crosby St, where you can try your first class for $20 with bike shoe rental included. Then hop across the street to Dry Bar and get your hair blown out ($45 for 45 minues) while you sip on a mimosa. And don’t forget to explore SoHo’s art scene. There are a number of art galleries in the neighborhood, including the one made famous as Charlotte York’s workplace in Sex & the City. Then stop in at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) Design Store on Crosby & Spring, because we all know the museum gift shop is the best part of visiting the museum anyway!
There’s your glimpse at the chic SoHo street style and what there is to do in this fun NYC neighborhood. Thank you to the Maria Sanchez for photographing me for this post. You can follow her on instagram here!
