Stylitics’ Picks: NYFW Hot Spots
With all the shows, parties and street style sightings, New York Fashion Week can become a chaotic blur fueled by lattes and Instagram. Here to help diffuse the madness, our team has shared their go-to spots around Fashion Week capitols Lincoln Center and Chelsea.
Rohan, CEO, Founder, and Former CK Underwear Model, suggests…
The Lobby of the Ace Hotel: “Comfy couches, good coffee, free wi-fi. A great (but often packed) place to work, as most tech entrepreneurs in the city know.”
20 W 29th Street, New York, NY 10001
Raines Law Room: “A speakeasy in Chelsea without the usual drama. Good drinks and a gorgeous basement interior. Ask for Paul, the keeper of the list on weekdays.”
48 W 17th Street, New York, NY 10011
Marea: “If you want to celebrate that big NYFW win or need to take a potential client to dinner, Marea in Columbus Circle has great seafood and pasta.”
240 Central Park South, New York, NY 10019
Zach, CMO, Founder, and Master Mixologist, suggests…
Bathtub Gin: “Looking for a fashionable, local spot, with amazing cocktails? This is one of the best in the city. Enter the hidden door through the bakery storefront off of 9th Ave.”
132 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10011
Levain Bakery: “A little north of Lincoln Center. They make the best cookies in all of NYC (chocolate chip and walnut for me). Perhaps hit up on the tail-end of fashion week…”
167 West 74th Street, New York, NY 10023
Maritime Hotel: “Convenient place near Milk Studios for a business meeting or quick bite during the day.”
363 West 16th Street, New York, NY 10011
Jessica, Marketing Manager and Resident Fashion Police, suggests…
Think Coffee: “For late night blogging that requires a glass of wine (and free wi-fi).”
73 8th Avenue, New York, NY 10014
5 Ninth: “For a non-pretentious drink in a restored 1800’s townhouse. The outside garden is a nice break from the mayhem, and they have happy hour specials Monday through Friday.”
5 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10014
Friedman’s Lunch: “For a good, classic meal that also delivers (and is EXTREMELY gluten-free friendly).”
75 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10011
Annie, Marketing Coordinator and Supporter of All Things Chocolate, suggests…
Grey Dog: “For a good cup of coffee and a cold-weather retreat.”
242 W 16th Street, New York, NY 10011
The High Line: “For a break from the mayhem (with the added bonus of some picture perfect views).”
Entrance on 22nd Street and 10th Avenue, New York, NY 10011

10 New Year’s Eve Party Essentials
New Year’s Eve is the one night a year when I feel completely comfortable dressing like a celebrity, no questions asked. I’m talking sequins and metallics, feathers and superfluous accessories, because on this night there really is no such thing as “too much.” So, for some inspiration to ring in 2013, I turned to Stylitics’ featured style icons and raided their closets for the best bling I could find.
So how will you be ringing in the New Year? Are you opting for sequins, lace, or a LBD? Tell us in the comments!

What made you want to become a Stylitics Ambassador?
I first learned about Stylitics when I met Zach at the Parsons Networking Fair. I was immediately intrigued by the concept of the company and wanted to get involved in any way I could. When Zach told me about the Stylitics Ambassador program they were launching, I knew I had to apply. I loved the fact that by being an Ambassador I would be able to be a part of a company in the fashion industry, while still in College, and have the chance to be part of Stylitics’ initial growth. In addition, since the role of social media and the Internet overall are such essential parts of a business, I thought it would be beneficial to me and my future career path to gain knowledge about Web-based fashion companies.
How would you describe your personal style?
Eclectic. I like thinking out of the box when I get dressed. I try to make every outfit special by adding a blazer or chunky costume jewelry. My style ranges depending on how I feel and where I’m going, from vintage to chic to girly to bohemian. I love taking my mom’s clothes from when she was in her 20’s and incorporating them with my own clothes.
What are your career goals and aspirations?
My career goal is to work on the business side of the fashion industry in New York City. I would like to work in sales, buying, and/or some area that deals with fashion on an international level. I want to someday work my way up to hold a VP position in the division I end up in because I like the idea of having a lot of responsibility and overseeing/managing a whole division. In addition, I hope that my job allows me to travel a fair amount throughout the year. Lastly, I want to give back and get involved in fashion and community service organizations.
What is your favorite thing about being a Stylitics Ambassador?
My favorite thing about being a Stylitics Ambassador is that I get to be part of an innovative start-up fashion company, which I have be able to watch grow from its initial launch to the successful place it resides in today!
What’s the number one item on your wishlist for fall?
Black leather pants.
What’s the best piece of fashion advice you’ve ever received?
Never dress to fit in, always dress to stand out.
Thanks so much Juliana, and to all of our Ambassadors for all of your hard work this month! For more information about the Ambassador program or to apply, email Jessica@stylitics.com!
