If you visit New York, and even more so live here, then you definitely do not want to look like a tourist in this city. New York Times told how to dress so that they would take you for a real New Yorker.

In fact, New York is so diverse that it will be difficult to run into judgmental looks, no matter what you wear. That being said, the quintessential New York look has more to do with how you carry yourself than how you dress.

What does a true New Yorker look like? Like fashion columnist André Leone Talley, who favors flared kaftans and oversized headpieces? Or like writer and critic Fran Lebowitz, who prefers men's suits? Or maybe like actress Chloe Sevigny, known for her eclectic wardrobe?

All of them are real New Yorkers, but they look very different. However, if you think about it, something unites them - a clear sense of their own character, created from the inside and expressed in the manner of dressing. That's why they seem so New York.

“Whatever you wear,” says Raul Lopez, founder of fashion brand Luar, “wear it with aplomb. Worrying about not fitting into society is what keeps you from fitting in.”

However, there are a few specific style tips to help you dress like a true New Yorker.

New Yorkers love to be pretty, especially when there's a reason.

So if you're going to Broadway and want to look like a local, dress smart.

Wider, freer, more comfortable

Knitwear, suits and coats must be one size larger. Any clothes that are too tight or fitted (this includes skinny jeans) will show that you are not a local. Also, if you want to look like a real insider, drape your chunky chunky sweater over your coat instead of a scarf, and tuck your oversized bag under your arm rather than over your shoulder.

Don't glare

New Yorkers favor layered suits, bulky bags, muted tones (black, white, and grey-green), unstyled hair, and as simple makeup as possible.

Fashion is a reflection of how strongly the urban environment determines how we dress. New York is a metropolis of concrete and skyscrapers. A city built on a grid. There is a harshness and austerity in its streets, which is reflected in the colors and forms of clothing of its inhabitants.

The last but key aspect of how not to look like a tourist in New York is walking.

Whatever you wear, remember that you need to walk around the city quickly and purposefully ... even if you have absolutely no idea where you are going.
