Because a little bling goes a long way, and a lot of bling goes even further.
5. A good pair of cut-off shorts.
Dressed up or dressed down, when the weather heats up in New York, the shorts come out to play.

Flats that fit in your purse for when you have to switch to heels before going out are a bonus.

A versatile pair of jeans is a staple for all stylish ladies, no matter where you live.
8. Power sunglasses.
No matter how sunny it is outside, a New Yorker never leaves her shades at home.
9. A serious pair of boots to handle the elements in style.
Never underestimate the importance of rubber soles when that surprise blizzard hits.
