During my recent trip to New York with my sisters it became apparent that most people get from A to B on foot, which makes it essential to wear comfortable clothes and footwear.
Everywhere we went, tourists and city workers alike wore mostly trainers and sandals. It’s common to see women dressed smartly in a skirt or dress complemented by a sensible pear of trainers. For the whole week we were there, I wore trainers every day and didn’t wear heels once! We did a lot of walking in all the places we visited and the weather was fairly hot – especially on the subway on the platform or walking from point A to B, though the trains themselves are cool and air-conditioned. My favourite and most comfortable outfit was the colour of my zodiac sign Aries – red. This is a pillar-box red top, Gigih, by Ted Baker, with a deceptively comfortable pair of Next lift and shape jeans and red trainers by Skechers. The Kate Spade tote bag is deceptively large as I can fit my HP Spectre laptop in it.
