The reality television party goers of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” may have coined the term “t-shirt time” and worked behind the scenes at a t-shirt store on the Seaside, N.J., boardwalk, but these kids have some unique choices when it comes to personal style. Love them or hate them, the cast members have become household names, setting fashion trends (and Halloween costumes) across the country. Here in New York City, getting a “Jersey Shore” wardrobe is easier than a trip across the George Washington Bridge. By Kelly Williams.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
Snooki is usually seen around the house in neon short shorts, revealing party outfits and signature fuzzy slippers. Leopard print was seen on the runways this season, but Snooki seems to channel her inner Lady Gaga in this animal print ensemble. You can skip the mask and bow, but Jersey girls can definitely use her MICHAEL by Michael Kors small monogrammed tote. Get yours at Michael Kors retailers throughout the city.
You can buy Snooki’s own fuzzy slippers online.
Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola
Sammi is usually seen sporting graphic tees and over-sized hooded sweatshirts, but this Bebe little black dress with shoulder cutout accents is short, sweet and perfect for a night out on the boardwalk. Get the look online or at various Bebe locations throughout the city.
Ronnie is rarely seen in anything other than a black muscle tank, tight graphic t-shirt, sandblasted jeans, or hoodie. He never forgets to show off his beach body with big chains and accessories. Add some graphics to your wardrobe with some Royal Pain Clothing tees.
There are not currently any stores in the Tri-State area, but you can buy online at Royal Pain Clothing
To rock Ronnie’s classic look check out “Jersey Laundry,” his new t-shirt line.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio
Mike and Pauly are known for having their shirts off and showing off their rock-solid abs, but when it’s “t-shirt time,” the guys know how to pull it together. To step out looking like Jersey’s finest, get out your sunglasses, over-sized watches, Ralph Lauren polos and dark washed jeans.
191 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10013
You can find Mike and Pauly D’s ‘Avenger’ Relaxed Bootcut Jeans in a Rifle Wash at various retailers throughout New York City
