A Cinched Waist is Always On-Trend

Here in NYC, fashion week is in full swing, and the fall 2014 collections are coming in hot. We are about halfway through the week and still have a bunch of shows to look forward to like Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta and Donna Karan this coming week. There is nothing like watching the streets for inspiration because we love to see what editors, models and other show-goers are wearing to the tents, Milk Studios and all the other venues (hello Alexander Wang across the river in Brooklyn). As we anticipate the new trends for fall, there is one look in our minds that will never go out of style: the cinched waist.

Here at Gurjot New York, we really believe accessories make the outfit. Because what is the point of wearing a beautifully tailored suit, gorgeous evening gown or even jeans and a tee shirt if you don’t love your shoes and handbag? A great statement necklace or hat can turn a simple outfit into something extraordinary. And the one accessory we could not live without is a really great belt. No matter what year or how billowy or boxy the silhouettes are from season to season, a cinched waist will always look polished and on-trend. Which is why we always reach for our Forever Reversible Belt, designed with the softest black leather on one side and luxurious silver silk on the other. Not too skinny and not too wide, it really is perfect to accessorize every outfit.

How are we wearing the Forever Reversible Belt during New York Fashion Week? A sheath dress with a blazer makes for the perfect daytime office look. But come nighttime, we’re ditching the jacket and adding the belt for a picture-perfect look to rock at all the designer after parties. Want to give that big winter coat a more shapely appearance? Tie on our versatile belt and suddenly your outerwear becomes the outfit. The same goes for an oversized sweater with a great pair of slender ankle length pants – just add our belt and your favorite pair of loafers for a polished weekend look.

Our Madison Jacket Means Business


Wouldn’t you say it’s time to bring some structure to your style? When it comes to workwear, women professionals should expect the same high quality out of their business attire that men receive without question. Here at Gurjot New York, our jackets mean business, designed with the same top-notch quality as a man’s suit and then some. Timeless in its design, our Madison Jacket is polished and versatile, perfect for wearing with a skirt, pants or your favorite sheath dress. Not only can you wear it to work, this blazer is perfect for channeling the menswear-inspired trend seen on the runways as of late. Our favorite way to wear it on the weekend? Sport it with jeans, a feminine floral shirt and a great pair of brogues for brunch, shopping or wherever your day off will take you.

We could talk all day about how great our Madison Jacket is, but what about it makes it better than the rest? Canvas is our transformative secret. Also known as horsehair, canvas is traditionally used to provide structure and create a smooth look in the front of men’s jackets, running from the shoulder right down to the bottom front. Canvas construction is a hallmark of quality tailoring, and classic tailors spend their lives mastering the art. Gurjot New York jackets contain nearly six delicate layers of special fabric between the silk lining and the exterior fabric of the jacket front. Most women’s jackets contain none. Without canvas, fabric just hangs, making your average women’s jacket essentially a glorified blouse. Canvas is a hidden armor that creates a crisp silhouette on the outside. It causes fabric to lay flat or curve where needed while keeping the jacket sharp and polished.

Along with looking fantastic, The Madison Jacket is one of the most functional you’ll ever own. It comes fully equipped with interior pockets for a phone, ID, lipstick and tampon, so you will feel prepared no matter what the day may bring. But don’t believe us, check out the Madison Jacket on our website and try it on for size.


Crushing on Velvet: How We’re Wearing this Luxurious Trend

Even though the holidays have passed and we’ve entered a new year, we are still crushing on one of fall’s most luxurious and elegant trends. Velvet was all over the runways from beautifully tailored suits to sexy cocktails dresses and everything in-between. The thick, short pile of this fabric makes it ultra soft and warm, perfect for dressing up your look in the winter months. And because it’s only January, we still have time to rock this opulent trend before spring comes along.

Here at Gurjot New York, we are all about decadence and bringing luxury into everyday workwear. So when we saw this regal trend emerging everywhere from celebrity red carpet appearances to other designer’s collections, we grabbed our favorite velvet pieces from the showroom and took them for a spin around town. Check out some of our favorites below and wear this royal trend while there’s still a chill in the air.
