And for whatever reason, New Yorkers have definite preference for one color: Black. It makes sense, really. Black is the ultimate neutral to be worn with pretty much everything. It’s a color that should and usually does appear in everyone single person’s wardrobe – from the fairest to the deepest complexions. There’s always a place for the darkest of dark hues.

You know that black is far from boring and when rendered in the right fabric it can be down right saucy! That’s why you choose garments like the girls Shiny Jacket from Anais & I. It’s the right color to wear with jeans or with a party dress, plus it’s sheen makes it clear that it’s not just your everyday parka. It’s functional with a fleece lining. It’s fantastic; it’s very New York.
