HOW TO: Layer for fall

Fall baby, fall.

For days when I’m not feeling all neutral and minimal, I’ll always go back to an easy flannel, denim, vest and Red Wing boots look.
Black coffee and cigarettes not included.

TREND: Camo Jacket

Hop on the train of mixing prints, patterns, textures, colors and leathers. It’ll probably stop soon, so let’s make this trip quick, yeah?
If you’ve been to any vintage, thrift or resale shops lately, you can tell that camo and military jacket sare making their rounds. This was my favorite summer wear to toss over a tank or light tee. It also enabled me to haul keys, cards, cellphones, wallets, swag and the like around without cramping my shorty shorts.
Now with fall upon us, it’s still a great layering piece. Think about subbing this guy in for a cardigan, or pile a down vest on over it. Comb through a thrift store to find one on the cheap, or dole out a few extra bucks at a curated resale shop to save you some time. 
  • Pro Tip: If it’s short or boxy or baggy, just roll the sleeves to make a hybrid, kimono-like sleeve of sorts and pretend you’re chill about it because you’re confident. That’s what I do with most of my clothes. ‘Cuz lanky arms.
