Ever wonder what some of the most popular voices in radio are wearing? Same Chic Different Day went behind the beat to talk with the very fab Nu York (cohost of the Roy Wood Jr. Morning Show on 95.7 JAMZ) about her eclectic mix of “Big Apple meets Magic City” style.
On dressing for success:
Nu York: It depends on the day. I wake up at 4:30 a.m. so most of the time when I’m leaving people are just getting in. So, they really won’t see me unless I have other work to do. [The] majority of the time I dress casually; however, recently I’ve been dressing up. Only because with my job, you never know who might drop by the studio.
On how both Alabama and New York have influenced her style:
Nu York: Sometimes New Yorkers can over accessorize an outfit which can look really loud, however Alabama has taught me to tone it down a little bit. Sometimes less is more. Alabama has a laid back sense of style. Lots of tee shirts & shorts. Flip flops. You will almost never see that in New York. Not unless it’s in the hood [laughs out loud]. And in New York you will almost always see big pairs of gold earrings. New Yorkers loooove jewelry.
On her worst fashion moment:
Nu York: My worst fashion moment would have to be when I first moved here from New York & I was trying to transition to the “Southern” style. I wasn’t used to wearing make up, as most New Yorkers hate doing, and I wore eye brow make up for the first time. I didn’t know how to apply it so as a result I looked like a clown/Geisha.
Nu York: Do wear eyelashes; [they doll] you up. Do keep powder on you in case your face gets shiny. Always keep a set of back up clothes in the car in case you spill something on it. And do dress to impress, even if it’s a trip to the grocery store.
Nu York: No improper lace fronts. Socks and sandals/flip flops equals what the heck were you thinking?! Leggings do not look good with everything. And DO NOT bootleg name brands, they are so easy to spot.
Nu York mentioned that her go-to outfit is a Bebe dress, and that she can’t wait to try feathered accessories for fall. Her final piece of fashion advice?
“There is always a sale going on somewhere! You don’t have to splurge to buy high fashion clothes/apparel.”
