Uptown Girls vs. Downtown Girls

During New York Fashion Week, socialites, designers, bloggers and artists all descend on Lincoln Center. Chanel and Oscar de la Renta-clad Upper Eastsiders sit next to Lower Eastside leather-swathed rockers and scantily clad It-girls du jour. The uptown socialites' uniform includes glossy long hair, a fresh face and casually worn designer bag. The uptown girl may wear heirloom, multi-carat Cartier earrings, but she'll pair it with J Brand jeans. It's that high-low mix that is the hallmark of an uptown girl.

The downtown girl loves a tougher, edgy look, and doesn't care whether her moto jacket came from Rick Owens or Housing Works. She's always looking for the next new thing. She may wear the same sculptural Alejandro Ingelmo heel as the uptown girl, but she'll give it a totally different spin.
