3. Casual Weekend
Layers are your friend.
“I believe we have all seen (or worn) a shirt layered on top of another shirt before. It’s a nice look. But how about 3 shirts in one outfit?
Each of the shirts here serves a different layering purpose. They get gradually thicker as they get further from the body – from cotton undershirt, to flannel overshirt, to wool outerwear.”
“The first layer is an old Banana Republic shirt that I hadn’t worn in years. I had my tailor chop off the collar a couple summers ago and it quickly made it’s way back into my rotation. I use it primarily as a henley-like layering piece in colder months (like here) or as a laiback collarless shirt in the summer.
The shetland sweater serves as a bridge between the undershirt and first overshirt – a solid flannel number that works more like a cardigan here, with a couple buttons undone at the top and bottom.
Finally, the plaid workshirt is outerwear. With a knit cap and all these layers, it’s sufficient for a cold winter day.”
“Who says you can’t layer your bottoms as well?
A chunky wool sock can be styled over your pants for an added visual layer. The extra height, coupled with the 8″ bean boots, lessens the impact of lanky legs.
I really like the ‘stacked’ look with the panelized boots, too.”
