Fashionistas heading to New York City for a shopping spree, take note: Oyster.com has paired up with Lucky Magazine to tell you not only where to stay on your next trip, but where to shop. We’ve selected chic New York City hotels to suit every style, and paired them up with some of Lucky’s favorite boutiques.
Where to go if you wear…
Eclectic boutique finds
Stay: Crosby Street Hotel, SoHo
If your closet is full of funky, colorful, one-of-a-kind finds, you’ll likely dig the Crosby Street Hotel’s whimsical English style. This U.K. import is sophisticated yet comfortable.
Shop: Babel Fair
Lucky Says… Every six weeks, Kiang embarks on a global pilgrimage and brings back treasures like Peruvian oil vials, Spanish-print pants, Korean denimwear. 260 Elizabeth St., 646-360-3685, babelfair.com
Wood-sole clogs and chiffon skirts
Stay: The Bowery Hotel, East Village If your style is earthy and cool, hit up the Bowery Hotel. The lobby is full of shabby-chic vintage leather and velvet furniture, and trendsetters Ashley Olson, Blake Lively, and Rachel Bilson have all been spotted here.
Shop: No. 6
Lucky says…It’s hard to choose between the Correll Correll chiffon skirts, Raquel Allegra shredded silk tees and No. 6’s private-label line of wear-’em-forever-and-ever wood-sole clogs. 6 Centre Market Pl., 212-226-5759, no6store.com
Animal prints and a mod bob
Stay: The Standard, East Village
Your mod, edgy style stands out from the crowd, and when you go out, everyone knows who you are. Like you, the Standard, East Village needs no introduction: The controversial 21-story glass edifice towers over the surrounding humble East Village tenements. Modern B&B Italia and Eames furniture, plenty of books, and floor-to-ceiling windows combine to create a contemporary, relaxed space.
Lucky Says…A swinging ’60s London vibe permeates at this French retailer’s first stateside boutique, where mod-chic silhouettes updated with leopard-print Peter Pan collars and edgy leather paneling feel completely effortless. 415 Bleecker St., 212-510-8390, us.sandro-paris.com
Feminine cocktail dresses
Stay: The Greenwich Hotel, TriBeCaThis charming 88-boutique hotel, with its old-world, Italian-style rooms and leafy courtyard is a fitting place to showcase feminine staples.
Lucky Says…We love the consistent selection of Tulle, BB Dakota and Ark & Co., plus the well-edited racks of feminine cocktail dresses and ladylike work pieces. 150 Franklin St., 718-389-4049, dalaganyc.com
Bright silk dresses and glam jewelry
Stay: The Empire Hotel, Upper West SideIf you’re channeling a glam 1960’s look, you’ll feel at home at the Empire Hotel. Outfitted with zebra- and leopard-print seating, heavy brown curtains and modern chandeliers, the lobby looks like a classed-up pad for liberated jazzbos. But during Fashion Week, you should expect to see models here, not musicians.
Shop: Le Grand Strip
Lucky says…Ifyou had a chic Parisian grandmother, this is what her closet might look like: leopard-print handbags, suede pumps and brightly colored long-sleeved silk dresses from the 1960s. 197 Grand st., 718-599-3525, legrandstrip.com
Local designers and vintage staples
Stay: Ace Hotel NY, Flatiron
The Ace, which features a giant American flag, fur blanket, and wood paneling in the lobby, as well as plaid bedspreads and turntables in the rooms, is a hipster haven.
Lucky Says…An American flag and worn wooden armoire get the message across that Duo, started by two Minnesota-born sisters, is an homage to both the past and patriotism. The store favors emerging local designers who produce in the U.S., as well as vintage staples like a flannel-lined khaki anorak and brown leather ankle boots. 337 E. Ninth St., 212-777-7044, duonyc.com
