I’ve always said that I’m not someone who like to chase trends, and actually in this case, I feel like the trends chased me. We shot this look two weeks ago, before Pitti. And if you’ve read the Pitti trend roundup, you know that I’m wearing two of them here. Perfect timing since I called them five trends that you can actually wear.

Layered Denim Jacket - He Spoke Style

You already know how I feel about turtlenecks. They’ve been my sweater of choice this winter. A comfortable and elegant alternative to a button-up shirt and tie that easily transitions from the office to the cocktail lounge.

Layering a denim jacket is nothing new, though in terms of seasonal application, it’s usually thought of as a fall play. However, try it over a lightweight sweater and under a wool topcoat this winter to give a tailored look a bit of a high/low edge.

Too much wrist adornment is something that needs to recede into the annals of history, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done at all. A watch paired with a simple cuff and beads adds just a touch of confidence and flair.

    I love to layer. That’s a fun look and provides and opportunity to put together favorites from different areas of the closet.

    Glad to see several posts with the Jake Erwin boots. I have several JE shoes, and have been consistently impressed with the quality to price ratio.

      The Chelseas are my only pair, but they’re really great. Which others do you have? Thanks for the comment!

        The Joe captoe, Stan double monks, Adam wingtips and both colors of the Chelsea boots.

        The wingtips are especially beautiful in the chestnut shade!

    Brain, did you buy the jean jacket washed or raw/dry? I love the worn in look and am curious about how you got it that way.

      Purchased in washed finish.
