Take your style in retrospect.

Travel back to high school in a classic letterman jacket.

If you weren’t a jock back in school, do not fret. Letterman jackets can be found at many retailers or even your local thrift shop. Layer a hoodie that compliments one of the colors in the jacket, like the white one worn by this New Yorker. Pairing black pants with the black jacket let the touches of yellow pop. Add color to your outfit with some bright sneaker like shown here.

From a bright silver to a delicate rose gold, show off your favorite crushed metal this season.

If it’s your first time wearing this trend, go for a silver jacket like this New Yorker here. The faux shearling lining offers some greater detail to the statement jacket. Balance out the outfit with an all black ensemble. To add a touch of flare, go for a pair of bell bottom pants. When wearing bell bottoms, pair with a pump or heeled bootie to elongate the leg. Accents of color coming from handbags or jewelry completes the look.

Black and white is abstract; color is not. – Joel Sternfeld

Fashion is all about contrast whether you’re playing off different shapes or colors, contrast draws the eye.

When wearing neutral colors don’t be afraid to try bold styles. For instance, a pair of color block jeans is a trendy, fashion forward way up your #ootd game. A mixed patterned coat is a great play on the solid black peacoats flocking the city streets. Pull two contrasting pieces together with a solid garment like this crisp white button down.

Oversized outerwear: comfy, chic, athleisure.

Anyone can throw on a hoodie and walk out the door, but in a fashion driven city, you might get a few looks…and not the ones you want.

Amp up your style by layering with an oversized denim jacket and pairing it with tapered trousers. Dress pants are breaking out of the office and becoming an essential in the athleisure movement. Stay comfortable with a cute pair of sneakers to explore the city in. A simple crossbody bag like the one shown here makes the outfit a bit chicer, you could also take this as an opportunity to give your outfit a pop of color.

People like to say that nothing is better than a man in a suit, but I like to argue, nothing is better than a man in a well-tailored suit.

Whether you’re tailoring your pants to rock the skinny leg trend or adjusting arm-pocket seams fit just on top of the shoulder, tailoring is vital to looking your best in a suit.

Aside from tailoring, my second piece of advice when wearing a suit is to make it your own.   In a large city, thriving with businessmen, stand out by going for an all over plaid print or even opting for a color outside of your neutral comfort zone. Get inspired by this New Yorker, trade in your penny loafers for some leather combat boots. He further proclaimed is personal style with a studded belt, if belts aren’t your thing, watches will add the same touch.

Eye-catching, trendy, essential, faux fur.

Faux fur can be seen around the city this season in so many variations; collars, jackets, vests, even pom poms on hats. The trend is even making an appearance in both men’s and women’s fashion.

When wearing a statement piece like a faux fur coat, its best to keep the rest of your outfit simple. A comfy sweater and basic denim will do the trick. In this case, it’s all about styling the outfit with accessories and I think this New Yorker nailed it!

Try adding a classic touch like shown here, brown loafers worn with some fun socks for a bit more edge. Swing your favorite handbag or backpack over your shoulders and you’re ready to hit the streets.

  • Coat – Ebay
  • Sweater – Banana Republic

Denim on denim, the New York way.

Layering denim can be a bit tricky. Do you wear the same wash on top as you do on the bottom? Do you mix acid wash with a solid jean? Should denim on denim be worn at all?

The answer is YES.

One of the easiest ways to pull off this look is to layer two different shades of denim like this New Yorker. The light wash denim jacket offers a high contrast to the black jean. Pair with your favorite shirt, like this tie dye one, and some combat boots to incorporate your personal style.

But most importantly, when playing around with trends like denim on denim, remember that there are not any rules to fashion, so just have fun!
