Smart Layering

With about a month of bipolar weather remaining here in New York, layering makes more sense now than ever. On the day of this shoot I knew I’d be running around all over the place so I had to prepare accordingly. Layering will give you the luxury of adding or removing clothing based on the temperature at any point during the day.

The grey tweed (no labels) sports coat and blue Herman’s bubble vest (probably over 15 years old) are thrifted. The brown tassel loafers were also a good purchase as I bought them from the clearance rack at DSW for $40. As far as the grey skull and bones Zara cardigan, you’ve seen it on theKacar before as it’s one of my favorite pieces to wear in the winter. The olive Uniqlo chinos are a little thin for this time of the year so that is why I pair them up with Uniqlo’s heat tech men’s leggings.

      Hi Dimitri – I rarely see skull & bones featured on Zara clothing as well. Lucky for me I guess! Thanks for reading.
