Easing Into Fall

The weather is playing tricks on us, again! One day you’re mad that you aren’t wearing enough layers, while the next day you’re trying to peel the skin off your body because it’s randomly and overwhelmingly hot. Until we are a few weeks into autumn, figuring out what to wear each day is a mission. Here are my four tips to starting off the fall season with style and comfort in mind, so that you’re ready to tackle whatever Mother Nature throws your way. 1. Fabric Matters You can never go wrong wearing a sport jacket. If you’re not required to wear a suit for work, make sure to stock up on a few sport jackets that are made of a lighter fabric. Keep the wool away until the temperatures really drop. I like to use a sport coat also as a jacket when there are warm days and cool nights because it is one less piece of clothing to worry about during temperamental weather. It’s as I like to call it, a two-for-one piece. …

Your Not-So-Average Suit

It’s event season in New York City and I am always looking for fresh new ways to wear a suit.When it comes to suiting, sometimes going away from what’s traditional creates a more memorable statement. We all have the standard navy, grey and black suits hanging in our closet, but why not mix the staples up with a variation of color?This dusty blue slim suit from Bar III immediately caught my eye. It’s a color that can be worn year-round and because the color leaves such a bold impression, you can decide whether or not to wear a tie (depending on the type of event of course). The price of this suit is just under $300 which is a phenomenal deal for the quality and construction of the pants and jacket. If I buy an off-the-rack suit, I always make sure to get it tailored to polish off the fit, but this is a suit that won’t need much work. Both maroon and sky blues have been my go-to colors for suits this fall, and …

Varsity Vintage Throwback

It’s the time of year where you can get away with wearing multiple layers without hiding them underneath a big jacket. One of my favorite ways to pull this look off is by building an outfit around a Varsity Jacket. I saw this deep maroon fleece jacket and was instantly drawn to it, as this has been a go-to color of mine over the last few weeks. The varsity jacket is a piece that never goes out of style and is in high demand this fall. The contrasting colors and details around the cuffs and neck give the coat a sporty feel while still paying tribute to the vintage style of the coat. I paired this with a grey fitted baseball tee to make the jacket pop even more and threw on my favorite pair of destructed denim and boots. Remember to play around with layering this fall and experiment with your looks. You can make the same shirt that you have worn 10 times already look completely new when paired with different pieces in your …
