Fashion influencer, author and founder of Chufy, Sofia Sanchez de Betak reveals her top tips on what to wear and where to go in her resident city of New York.

New York style

I love that everyone here is making a fashion and personality statement, even when it looks like they’re not. In New York, people make a point when it comes to their style and how they portray themselves — it’s been like this forever.

What to wear

If you’re heading to NYC for a city break, I suggest the following five essentials: a good pair of jeans, a souvenir T-shirt, a jumpsuit, comfortable boots (NY is a walking city), and AirPods, so you can listen to podcasts on the go.

Favorite haunts

De Vera
This is a beautiful gallery and antiques store — I can’t wait to see their new spot.

If you're in downtown Manhattan, this is the best place to go for weekend brunch.

A cool new working space in Bushwick for creatives. Go here for workshops, plus ceramics, arts and crafts.
