Yay! Another guest post by
By now, if you’re occupying one of the regions experiencing temp drops, you are certainly rocking heavier jackets. Here we come back to one of my favorites, just in a different way: the motorcylce jacket. This time, we dress it up a bit with the next level combo:
1. Moto jacket.
(This one is a beautiful lambskin version available at
2. Button down.
(This BOSS black is available at
3. Scarf (ESSENTIAL).
(80’s purple has some PHENOMENAL examples like
4. Leather or suede kicks (if you have to go sneaker, make it nice i.e. Puma fashion, etc). Boots are great or at least a chunkier bottom variant of your favorite style (oxford, etc).
5. Premium, fitted denim or slacks (wool perhaps?).
5. Optional but HIGHLY recommended: modern fit sweater (there should be no bunching up anywhere). I usually go wool, cashmere, or a blend of either.
Alternate: swap #2 for a turtleneck, also modern fit.
When you’re considering scarf choices, lean away from conservative when possible. Even if you choose a relatively neutral color, go for an ignorant width or knot it in a way that stands out. And yes, regardless of the temperature, the Arab scarf is always welcome. To switch it up, just tie it as you would a traditional one. When you look at your closet and think ‘which button-down?’ try a darker choice from time to time. A dark, tightly patterend flannel perhaps? Or a muted stripe? The same boldness regarding darkness should by no means stop at the shirt. Denim, slacks, even footwear can all benefit from a little romp on the darkside (not all at once mind you). The beauty of this look is the limitless possibility for creativity! This update to the first variant of the moto aesthetic removes the casual elements and replaces it with a wonderfully dressier group of pieces that are a refreshing change appropriate for showing off your impeccable style.

One of the great things about the cooler seasons is the ability to change up your outerwear. Still want some wear out of those nautical footwear choices? Why not pair them with a duffle-coat? It’s bold and the ocean aesthetic is a welcome change to the standard peacoats we’re seeing currently. Check out the examples below and note the pairings. Oh, and like all jackets/blazers/and outerwear, the fit should be tailored, never hanging off you.
This one for the ladies
This take on the traditional duffle coat is one of my favorites because of it’s unique collar, great for making ya mark, especially since it’s only
This example for you ladies in striking yellow is a not-so-subtle way of giving a quick nod to the upcoming warmer spring we’re all waiting for (
