THE LOOK

It’s still cold out, so I’m still breaking out jackets and coats! When it comes to puffer coats, I like to select ones that have something special or unique to them, otherwise it looks like any puffer. This slightly longer jacket has a slight sheen to the black material, which drew me in. The dramatic white collar and zipper line are what sold me! The puffer is warm on its own, but the fur collar take it to another level. This was super helpful on this particular day because I was wearing a sleeveless turtleneck underneath. I linked a similar one above because this one is a showroom pull and comes out next season. 

Most of the items in this look were found in my closet, meaning I didn’t have to go out and buy new things to build this look. I love when that happens! In fact, this sleeveless turtleneck, Levi’s jeans, belt and Alexander Wang boots are a bunch of my favorite go to’s for everyday use. The look is very clean, but includes a hint of edginess with the boots and accessories. 

How I Test New Trends

Colored sunglasses were something I had been wanting to try, but not something I wanted to spend a chunk of money on before I was sure I liked them. In these moments, I turn to Asos. This online store has literally everything! Asos always has the best prices on versions of trending or popular styles of any fashion item. I highly recommend turning to them if you want to try a new style, but are not sold 100% yet. I ended up liking my colored sunglasses, but if I hadn’t, I would have only lost $10 if I chose not to return them. Once you start strategizing your purchases, you end up saving money in the long run and purchasing what you love more often.

Navy Layers in the Flatiron District

The Look

There is no better feeling in blogging than completing a bunch of look shoots after waking up at 5:30am in frigid temperatures. One of our most productive days came this past Sunday, when we hit the bare streets of New York to power through a few looks. This was one of them! Naturally, the first look and earliest shoot includes PJ vibes. 

This look combines everything from high end to affordable, which is what I normally strive for. I found these awesome pinstripe, tearaway pants on sale at Zara! They still have tons of similar styles on sale, so definitely check them out. I am always wearing jeans, so changing it up with a wide leg trouser was just what I needed to shake things up! These pants are so comfortable and I absolutely love wearing them with sneakers. They give these pants and look as a whole a street style vibe and effortless feel. 

I decided to pair these pants with a super soft and cozy sweater from Madewell. The mock neck is perfect because it’s looser than a turtleneck, but high enough to block that cold early morning wind! Again, this sweater falls a little above the price range of Zara, and below that of the Mackage coat. I’ve never found a sweater from Madewell that wasn’t soft, so it’s definitely one of my first places to look for them!

Finally, I completed this look with a Navy dress coat by Mackage. I did this partly to get that monochrome navy look, and partly to create a look with higher end and affordable pieces. I love this coat because you can dress it down very easily as you can see, and dress it way up over a dress with heels. It is very versatile, but also references subtle street style vibes. The extra long belt makes me think of Off White with their bright yellow or white waist belts! It’s small things like this this that truly complete an outfit and finding inspiration in other designers and clothing is key to getting the most out of your closet!
