My favorite lie that people tell about New York is that we have four actual seasons. I mean we “technically” do if you categorize them as follows: “Is it too hot to wear a jacket?” (Fall), “It’s beyond brick outside!” (Winter), “It’s still brick outside, but there’s…rain?” (Spring), “Wow, this is what hell must feel like, but at least there’s brunch.” (Summer) Either way, we’re still in between the last two which can mean anything when it comes to fits. Personally, I really love this look because it features a rain coat that doesn’t take away from the outfit itself. With something like this you can rock it to a semi-casual party or to the office if you’re trying to do a light flex on everyone in their button-ups and dark chinos. (I actually don’t know what people wear to the office anymore since I just do what I want.)
Wearing: American Eagle
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.

The only outerwear that matter this season is the coach jacket. (Well right before denim, bomber, and leather jackets, but I digress.) I personally love the coach because it’s crazy easy to wear and style. When picking out the right one I suggest going for something that can both stand out on its own as well as complement your tees and shirts. For this particular look ,I treated the jacket like a shirt and dressed fairly monochromatically. Again white accents help break up a fit so you don’t look like you escaped from the state prison. (Which isn’t an awful look tbh, but you don’t need those problems.)
Sun’s out, guns out. (More like BB guns, but whatever.)
This past weekend was perfect weather for rolling up those jeans and losing the sleeves. I’m still not breaking out the crazy colors yet since the temperature is as reliable as Lindsay Lohan showing up somewhere on time. (Fun fact: I had to throw on a navy baseball jacket later that night.) Pairing a hat and shirt with nearly identical prints and in the same hue can seem a little to matchy matchy, but it’s totally doable if you dress your bottom half neutrally. I went with a easy pair of jeans and some ever so classic suede Puma sneakers. Done and done. Here’s to many more afternoons with short sleeves and slurpees.
