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?)

I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve stopped hyping New Year’s Eve. I’ve been the bozo running around the streets of New York in a bright blazer and bow tie, but this year I’m opting for something more chill. While I’m not going all out, I still love being “festive.” If you’re still looking for some outfit inspo, I’m pretty obsessed with this look. I’ve been waiting to bust out this pajama shirt since it’s a lot of look, but it’s the perfect party piece. The top is a LEWQ so I made sure to dress around it. (Besides the shining patent shoes and the gold bling, of course.) Personally, I have no idea what I’m doing this year, but I’m sure I’ll end up singing Rihanna’s Work at the top of my lungs while dancing on top of a couch and clinging to a half empty bottle of champagne in my hand.

If we’re keeping 100, I probably wear hoodies all year long. (Yes, including in the summer because I have no idea what chill is or a basic understanding of weather.) I’m sure another site will tell you different, but I think a good hooded sweatshirt is a staple in every dude’s wardrobe, even if he’s not into streetwear. One major tip I can share on this topic is that your regular gym hoodie should NEVER be the same as your outfit hoodie. (That’s just nasty.) You really can’t go wrong with a heather gray piece. It’s classic and much like the one I’m wearing in this post, they can even be hella elevated. (I hate that word btw.) Go ‘head and splurge on a nice hoodie for yourself, it not just for hypebeasts and cozy boys anymore.

I’ve been interested in getting a longline bomber jacket for a while now. The only people I’ve ever seen pull it off are the teens on the subway and European  ”Instagram models.” (Coincidentally enough both groups always pair them with Yeezy boosts, not sure if there’s a correlation there.) I decided to just go for it and if it didn’t fit at least I’d be able to use it as a sleeping bag. Since I’m on the shorter side, I really wanted to I wanted to exaggerate the oversized silhouette. Screw whatever some of these men’s mags tell you about not wearing baggy clothes if you’re on the small side. Personally, I think it helps disguise the length of your torso. For color, I suggest keeping your tones as neutral as Switzerland claims to be. There’s a lot of proportion play going on here so it’s always best to keep everything simple and clean.
