look 28: autumn glow.

i'll admit, the weather around this time of year can be pretty brutal in nyc—it's the price we pay for having actual seasons *throws shade at the west coast*—but every now and then, you get treated to that perfect fall day. the right temperature. a smooth breeze. that lit lighting. and, of course, the chance to ease up on the heavy outerwear one last time before hibernation season officially begins. surprise, surprise: we recently got one of those days...


wearing: asos man striped blazer, mock turtleneck and stacked chelsea boots, off white nebraska jersey tee, weekday leather pants, reclaimed vintage cross cap.


breaking down the look

this look is a blended lesson in layering and textures. for the top half, i stacked things up with a mock turtleneck underneath, a thicker (but not heavy) tee in the middle, and a blazer in place of my usual jacket. with mother nature finally on my side for once, this sweet trio made the perfect combination. down below, i switched up my fabric routine with a heavier pair of leather pants. i'd say they fit the season pretty well; plus, i think they look hella nice paired with my chelsea boots.
