Black Puffer in Soho + How I Test Out New Styles & Trends

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

Sweater: Madewell (Identical here) | Pants: Zara (Identical here) | Coat: Mackage Sneakers: Adidas

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!

Acne Jeans + New Favorite Knit

Claudia Di Capua

Sweater: ReissJeans: Acne Studios Boots: Stuart Weitzman | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Beret: Urban Outfitters

The Look

It's one of the warmest days of winter today, but I'm posting this anyway! As I was putting this post together, I realized that I love and look up to many of the brands I'm wearing in this post. For example, I love Stuart Weitzman's amazing suede work, Acne Studio's commitment to street style and Reiss for their simplistic elegance. I recently became acquainted with Reiss and am so happy to have tried it out. I could honestly wear this sweater without a coat because it does it's job of keeping me warm very well! I normally wear a light long sleeve top underneath and I'm good to go. Blue is my favorite color, so finding this style of sweater, which is one of my favorites, in this icy blue color for winter was a no-brainer. 

I'm in love Acne Studios. I love how their pieces have asymmetrical lines and how they have a signature streetstyle look. They do oversized so well, but I went with the skinny jeans this time around! I had been on the hunt for a pair of grey jeans for a while as my closet is oversaturated with blue and black jeans. Their jeans are fairly priced and super high quality! I expected the price to be annoyingly high, but was pleasantly surprised to see that that they were right on pace with many of my other jeans. 

Next, let's talk shoes and accessories. These Stuart Weitzman boots hit it out of the park for me. I love the rich, warm tone and texture of this grey. It looks luxurious and different than the lighter and colder looking grey that most other over the knee boots have. I'm always a fan of slightly different and unique! These boots are on sale now for half the price!! Definitely check them out above. I went for my old and new favorites for accessories. The old being the Ray Bans and the new being the beret. I wasn't sure I would love the beret, so I got one for a lower price. I like to test new items out this way so that I don't spend a fortune on something I may not love in a few months. Luckily, this isn't the case for this beret as I can't seem to take it off!

P.S. Those Great Danes though!! I wish they were mine, but they're not. A friendly pedestrian let me borrow them for a picture or two :).
