Ashley Benson Dishes On Her Love For NYC Fashion

Ashley Benson will always be a New York City style girl, not Los Angeles.

The former Pretty Little Liars actress opened up in a new interview with Fashionista about her chic street style, and why she’ll never be as comfortable in Los Angeles as she is in NYC.

“When I was in LA, I dressed like I was in New York all the time, so moving here just allowed me to get more into the New York vibe with faux fur and cool jackets,” Ashley says.

One closet staple that she gets to wear more of? Her leather jacket: “I can always wear my leather jacket, which I wore almost every day in LA — even if it was 90 degrees outside, I’d still be in a leather jacket.”

She continues, “Here, I wear cool, heavy jackets, turtlenecks and sneakers because I’m walking around a lot. I like Converse or Nikes. I’m mostly in workout clothes when I’m in LA or jeans and a t-shirt. My style is not that fun to talk about. I wish it was.”

Ashley also dishes on just why NYC fits her more than anywhere else in the world.

“I think New York style is so cool and effortless,” she shares. “One of my favorite things is walking around and seeing everybody’s style — people are very fashion forward here. Brooklyn surprisingly is super-cool and young and has great fashion. The East Village has great fashion.”

Ashley adds, “Everywhere. I feel like everyone is on-point in New York, even if you’re getting groceries. Everything looks chicer here. It’s just the attitude, too. I feel like New Yorkers are just very cool and calm. Not trying too hard. That’s what it is: Just super-effortless, and it just makes everything look that much better.”
