Saturday Style: Follow Our NYC Weekend Guide Inspired by Kate Spade Saturday

As a New York-based magazine, we here at Lifestyle Mirror may be a little biased in saying this—but New York City is an amazing city. And we want everyone to get in on the fun.

So whether you’re a native New Yorker or in town for a weekend, we’ve put together a New York City weekend guide to give you an authentic locals-only experience. We’ve dodged the tourist traps and gathered the spots frequented by hip Manhattanites (and Brooklynites). From hip restos to must-see shows, you’ll be living a New Yorker’s un-lazy Saturday dream.

Now New York may be known as a fashion capital, but don’t let that send you into an outfit panic. It’s the weekend, you’re supposed to relax! Luckily, Kate Spade Saturday (see our favorite picks here) is the perfect place to find a little casual style inspiration. And we’ve even put together the perfect weekend outfit to go with the fun.

So ditch your Zagat guide and scroll through our insider picks to a cool New York weekend.
