STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Cool, Cuffed And Comfortable

Is it just me, or is dressing for this time of year particularly difficult? Fall is my favorite season, but the weather leading up to it is just too unpredictable, making the planning of an outfit frustrating and most of the time useless. The only solution I have come across to help fight this style stumbling block is light layers, but I could not help but notice the classy yet casual look that this Fashionisto captured while walking the streets of the Bronx at the Ferragosto Italian Festival. He looked comfortable in a cotton V-neck striped tee and distressed, red chinos, while adding a touch of sophistication with a khaki blazer and brown leather loafers. What really caught my eye, though, were the rolled chinos, giving the outfit an even more laid-back look remnant of the summer months.

The best part about this Fashionisto’s ensemble is that it only requires some basic essentials easy to find in any retailer and easy to customize to your individual style. J.Crew provides endless options for both men and women attempting to create versatile styles to wear during the erratic days of early fall. Layering oxford shirts and button-up cardigans along with cuffed chinos, jeans or even corduroys create an outfit conducive to those annoying unexpected changes in temperature. This also gives you a great opportunity to highlight a cute pair of shoes like these men’s suede MacAlister boots or these adorable tassel-embellished loafers, which can add dimension and individuality to an otherwise simple outfit.

Have fun with the challenges of seasonal changes and use the time to mix your favorite cuts and colors of past and present seasons to emphasize your own personal style.
