What to Wear in NYC in November?
Days in November are warm and nights are cooler; so you will have to pack your clothes accordingly. Bring clothes that suit both kind of weather and try dressing in layers as they will reduce your perks of putting on and removing clothes constantly like jackets and sweaters and windproof jackets. Here are some suggestions:
Women – You’ll have to do away with shorts during November as it is not that hot. However, jeans will do just fine. Full-sleeved tops and pants are all you need for the day. To go out in the evening, you can wear woolens and denims and heavy jackets. You might also need gloves to keep your hands warm. It does get real cold at night!
Men – There is no alternative to trousers and jeans as shorts or crops will not get you through the day. T-shirts and full-sleeve shirts will be more than enough for daytime. For night, you can keep heavy sweaters or woolen jackets and a windproof jacket, too. For nightclubs and restaurants, stick to classic suits or formals.
Kids – For your kids, you can keep windproof jackets, heavy woolen sweaters and jackets. Girls can stick to their jeans and woolen slacks and a sweater. Boys can also opt for shirts and t-shirts for daytime and add a sweater and gloves to the same for night.
Footwear – Since it is going to be cold, avoid sandals or gladiators. Avoid flip-flops for obvious reasons, i.e., dirty feet! Closed-toe shoes like sneakers or tennis shoes are your best bet in the city as they will not only keep your feet clean but are also comfortable to walk around the entire day. It is even better, if you are carrying water-resistant shoes.
Accessories – A hat and gloves will keep you warm in night. A scarf and tote are must if you are in New York and intend to roam in the city or go shopping; and the usual, sunscreen and sunglasses to keep your skin safe.
