You ever buy a piece that hangs in your closet for a while and every day you look at it while getting ready and think “Nah, they’re not ready for this yet?” That was me with this jacket partly because it’s been unseasonably warm, but mostly because nothing I had felt right to wear it with. (Do you know how hard it is to find the perfect orange hoodie or tee?) Either way, it finally felt right and what do you pair a puffy orange jacket with? (Answer: As many other orange pieces you can pull together that just stops before you look like a traffic cone and some gold accents.) Subtly? I don’t know her.

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.

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.
