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?)

Fall has been teasing us for a while now and I’m moderately confident enough to say that layering weather is here to stay. Knowing New York City, the temp will probably rise back to 80 or dip down to 15 degrees just because I wrote that.
For me, layering is a mixed bag. I love just throwing on things that don’t sound like they would work. Case in point: denim, cashmere, cotton and suede. A stripe here, a print there, and a little shine go a long way my friend. Be daring and go forth with epic layers.
