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 is in full swing which means I can finally put away the chicken wings I call arms and stock pile on some layers. Like any good time, you’ve got to gently ease into it. It’s a no-brainer that the denim jacket is the most versatile piece of transitional outerwear and pretty much looks good on everybody. That being said, you can style these a number of ways. You can never go wrong pairing one with a casual button-up, dark chinos, and boots. I can say without a doubt that this will be one on my Autumn uniforms since it’s so easy to swap out pieces like the shirt, pants, and accessories for a different fit every day, but maintaining a similar vibe.

Even though overalls can easily make you look like a toddler about to head to pre-school it could be a strong look if you pick the right pair. Since my style is more laid back I opted for a slouchy pair and wore them lose. (Personally, I think wearing them all the way up is a little lame, but do you.) And, of course, I’m still about dressing monotonically (I looked it up to make sure it’s a real word) so I paired it with a simple tee, hat, and boots. Go head and stunt on your local orgainc dairy farmer.
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.)
