look 19: hardware hero.

sometimes the little details really make a big statement. i copped a few new pieces from maniere de voir and asos, and they're decked out with some sweet hardware embellishments: you know, zippers, chains, rings, all the silver works. they really took this laidback look to the next level. check it out. -j

wearing: maniere de voir suede biker jacket with chain detail, distressed zipper jeans, t-shirt & cap, asos man ring belt & creepers.

breaking down the look

for this one, i actually used the hardware details as an extension of the color palette: brown and black + silver. between the jacket, pants and belt, they really stand out among the neutral foundations of the look and pop. ✨

look 15: mother nature's gotcha gotcha.

so, after about a week of amazing weather, mother nature went and threw a cold curve ball our way. while i'm sure it's only temporary at this point, i'm not mad about the chance to break back out this boss coat from maniere de voir.

wearing: maniere de voir fur-lined coat in black, side seam lace-up t-shirt, destroyed jeans and chelsea boots.

breaking down the look

now that my brain has shifted into spring mode, it's kind of hard to go back to throwing on heavy layers, so i kept it light underneath and let my outerwear do the trick. this coat's super warm, but not too heavy on the body, which makes it perfect for the chillier half of the season-to-season transition. from a style perspective, i kept it all-black (with a pop of color on top), which is always a sure win. -j

look 13: the layering game, simplified.

while it's been a see-saw of extreme weather conditions here in nyc, i'm happy to say that brighter (and warmer) days are definitely in sight. with that said, i think we can finally go ahead and begin our transition toward spring-appropriate threads. the trickiest part always comes down to layering, and i found a sweet in-between piece from maniere de voir.

while the lining details are on deck to keep me protected against the breeze, the best thing about this shearling is the weight. it's super light, which is perfect when the sun creeps up out of nowhere. here, i threw it on over a tee and hit the streets for an easygoing look that's simple but effective—especially when you glance at those fire chelsea boots.

season staples: the hoodie.

as we gear up for spring here in nyc, we’re well-aware that the picnics, bike rides, and wonderful temperatures that typically mark the season are still quite some time away. in the meantime, lightweight layers are very necessary for surviving the last of the winter chill. my go-to piece for the transitional season: the hoodie.

earlier this month, i ordered these two bad boys from maniere de voir, and i've been wearing them pretty often since they arrived. they’re both lightweight, which makes them great for layering under thicker coats right now (considering it's still harshly cold out here), but also wearing on their own as things eventually warm up. and more than that, they're really stylish in design. the camo option's perfect for making a statement, and the black version is super-functional and subtle enough to break out a few times a week without getting side-eyes for over-wearing it.

why they’re important

one of the best things about the hoodie is that you can wear these street-ready staples anywhere—the gym, the movies, brunch, lunch, you get the point—and the styling options are endless. rather than type out all the different ways to put them to work, watch the video below for 8 easy fashion wins.

see? I told you! it's like a style secret weapon, haha. check out maniere de voir for more cool styles dropping this season.
