What’s in your Closet?

Long Islanders share their everyday fashion and style

Living and working throughout Long Island, I am repeatedly witness to super-stylish individuals who take it upon themselves to make sure they are literally buttoned-down when it comes to attire and expression. Fashion is by no means a limited resource to us, and with such a variety of vanity-inclined personalities in a small space, it is the perfect condition to get some fashion exposure, and of course, some excellent muses of your own.  

Renee Falco


Graphic top, Forever 21

Leather jacket, Marshalls

Jeans, necessaryclothing.com

Boots, Alloy

WHY IT WORKS She chose the outfit because it reminds her of Versace by Migos, but made the look her own by picking a bold design for her top. To complement the graphic tee, Renee kept the rest of the outfit simple and threw on the leather jacket for a little edge. Black, animal print, leather, and sharp edges make for a look that shows she embraces a stylishly bad-girl attitude – and the red lip makes it sexy.


Dominique Maciejka


Vintage 1970s zipper-front dress

Shoes, MK Suede Boots

Jewelry, YSL

Handbag, 1970s gold lame bag

WHY IT WORKS Dominique loves the 1970s era, so she bought her entire outfit in vintage Long Island boutiques. Wearing vintage clothing is all about paying homage to something timeless – fashion itself. The modern shoes and jewelry ensure the look doesn’t become costume-like.


Tito Colon


Dark denim jeans, Abercrombie

Vest and shirt, Hugo Boss

Wingtip shoes, Kenneth Cole

Silver watch, Timex

WHY IT WORKS Tito’s choice in mixing formal with casual is a great way to stay comfortable yet dressed up – and it looks totally sleek. To make it more interesting, he chose a grommet belt for accent and created a polished look with modern dress shoes. This outfit is universal and, with simple modification, can easily transition to either a more casual or a more formal appearance. It is what I call a “be ready for anything” outfit.
