New York is obviously one of the fashion capitals of the world and while runway shows come and go style lives on far beyond Fashion Week. Most of our days are spent streetstyle stalking our favorite fashion influencers just to get a glimpse of their enviable wardrobes...or some inspiration for next weekend’s outfit lineup. This month we are focusing on one of our favorites, Racquel Natasha (aka Racquel Bettencourt). While she’s typically showcasing her personal style around Los Angeles (or on her many travels), the stunner recently took to the cobble stoned streets of New York’s meatpacking district with streetstyle photographer (extraordinaire), Jeff Thibodeau. Bundled up in a faux fur coat and over the knee boots, Racquel has enviably effortless style down pat, and seems to get that accessories truly make the outfit. Case in point, while her coat and boots are never-basic black, she adds a dose of unexpected edge with our multi-colored Gansevoort messenger bag. The zig-zag detailing and pops of yellow and white really stand out on the embossed leather handbag making it a focal point of an already fab outfit. Catch the entire shoot with Racquel below and make sure to check out racquelnatasha.com for all things lifestyle, fashion, and beauty related! We promise you won’t be sorry you did.
