'Wear Nice Clothes' is the ultimate in procrastination for our writers who prefer to write satirical fashion commentary than actually do the work for their degrees. We love vintage shops, charity shops, clothes that last forever and customisation.

NYC Style.

 New York Blogger, Gotham Hipster's, tips and tricks from her city.


For some, the winter holidays bring a time of cheer and uplift, but for others the season is filled with anxiety. Many family members fly into the midst of our, already chaotic, lives leaving us with feelings of disarray, especially if this holiday is the first time your boyfriend is being put on the family pedestal for examination.  But I’m not a holiday cynic; I absolutely adore New York in its winter state. It’s quite a sight to walk down snowy 5th Avenue and to be presented with each store’s festive windows. Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, and Barney’s, are the most well-known for their illustrious decorations; the authentic New York experience is incomplete without seeing them.

This year Bergdorf’s windows are inspired by Alice in Wonderland, exuding the whimsical sensation that the holiday season brings with it. Recently, I posted an article on my blog Gotham Hipster about the upcoming release of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. The movie takes an eerie spin on the classic, and Bergdorf’s windows hits the film's style right on target.

Both the movie and the store have inspired me to reflect a more fanciful vibe with my clothes. I have been experimenting a lot with white tights and more bows, seeing what a striking statement they can add to an ensemble. The holidays are a great time to begin experimenting with a new style and New Year’s is right around the corner so get to it!
