With the recent dip in temperature, St. Louis is beginning to feel a lot more like winter than fall. Despite the frigid weather, this Fashionisto is warm and cozy in his layered look. Rather than resorting to a hoodie or sweatpants, this sir keeps it casual with a layered jean ensemble. From the different fabric textures to the cuffed jeans, this look is a potpourri of everything fabulous. While there are several elements that please the eye, the piece that stands out to me is the vintage jean jacket. Far from your average denim jacket, this winter gem is composed of various jean patches with subtle shade variations and brown leather patches. The lighter wash and distressed look of the denim is the perfect contrast to the dark rinse of the jeans.
The cuff on the jeans is also a great touch. Though we tend to rely on accessories to change up the look of repeat outfits, cuffing your jeans is an easy way to completely change the look of an ensemble. This Fashionisto’s decision to pair the cuff with exposed socks and simple casual sneakers maintains the cool feel of the outfit. Though the end result appears effortless, there are a lot of little details that help make this look so flawless.
Hint: Layering does not mean bulky. Pair lightweight items such as T-shirts and button-ups with a medium-weight jacket, like this Fashionisto, to keep warm without breaking a sweat. The best thing about layering is that it lets you wear all of your summer favorites in the chilly fall weather. Also, take a cue from this gent and try exposed socks. For this trend, I highly recommend trying out quirky prints and patterns! Levi Brand Jeans offers great options for jean jackets, while J.Crew and Happy Socks have a plethora of eclectic sock choices.
