Now that spring is allegedly here (you can’t be too sure in the northeast) it’s a perfect time to talk about my favorite trend for the upcoming season, NEON! I wish I was joking, but all I want to do is look like a highlighter. I’m talking about bright yellows, oranges, blues, you get the picture. Before I get carried away, I’m trying to introduce some key pieces in my wardrobe, which I suggest you do as well. I wanted to complement the bright yellow with tints of green. Honestly, if you’re going anywhere in a crazy color hoodie you might as well have fun with the whole fit.

Band tees have always been a favorite of mine ever since my first concert. (*coughs* Fall Out Boy *coughs) I’ve styled them a couple of different ways on this site, but this go around I wanted to really for an authentic classic rock feel. Dark fitted jeans, boots, and a leather jacket are all no brainers to team your tee up with. If you’re really going for it, you have to make sure your accessories are on point. Mixing metals and adding a bandana to my hat isn’t rocket science or new by any means, but going that extra step really helps to pull a fit off.

Winter on the East Coast is never a joke. I, however, am one of those knuckleheads who actually care abouut what I look like when it gets cold out. (I mean, damn, it’s New York, not Antarctica.) The older I get, the better at layering I get, I think. (Chock it up to trial and error.) I really love this outfit because I get to show off layers with different textures and lengths, but keep everything cohesive with the color palette. Nothing is really off limits when it comes to mixing and matching pieces. It’s kind of like a fun sartorial puzzle that has your closet looking like a bomb hit it after you’ve come up with a strong fit. (Or maybe that’s just me?)
