How to layer for winter? Good question, because more clothes = more decisions. For inspiration and guidance, we asked Senior Stylist Jodi Taylor to dress
model musician Ryan Neighbors and give us a note on her thought process. This is outfit one of four.

Try a combination of textures with a subtle print while staying in a subdued color palette. In this case a rubbery jacket, chunky sweater and plaid shirt offer a diversity of feels while being tied together by colors you would find in a forest.

There are a billion and one things to know about denim, but at this exact moment you only need to know two:
1) Slim fit is the new normal.
Don’t worry, wearing slim-fit jeans does not mean having an awful time trying to get your keys into/out of your pocket. It means you’re living in modern times.
2) Owning jeans in various washes is the move.
If you care about coordinating with your shoes and the rest of what you’re wearing, you’ll need a few pairs of jeans in different colors. Five washes for you to consider: black, distressed, grey, vintage inspired and dark wash.
Check out the murdered-out fit above and, below, four more ensembles to inspire you to master each category.

“Wingtip oxfords are typically perfect for the workplace–and this pair of shoes is, too. But with the canvas construction, things are already a little less dressy. Recognizing that, you can follow suit and combine a blazer and trousers with a polo instead of a button-down. Or go for a weekend casual look with the vintage-wash jeans and the t-shirt.”
