I’m an Editor in NYC—5 Trends I’m Currently Shopping (and the Ones I’m Skipping)

Take notes on these.

Nordstrom Fall Trends

In New York City, trends come and go at a pace as rapid as the subway trains. This season, the trends have come in many forms, but to be safe, I like to focus on the ones that stay true to my typically classic style. Personally, I’ve been opting for trousers and a pair of ballet flats, which are all the rage this season, as an elegant alternative to jeans and boots. Functional fashion is in, too, so I’m leaving behind those micro bags (adorable as they may be) for a capacious tote that holds all my essentials for a day out in the city. I can’t forget about my beauty routine, and I like to apply my fashion habits to my makeup choices, which means a healthy dose of blush and glossy lips are what I’ll be wearing daily. Feeling inspired to follow my lead? I would head over to Nordstrom. Trust me—between its NYC store, which has three glorious floors, and e-commerce site, it was actually a little too easy to stock up on everything I wanted.
