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 four of four.
“For a casual but professional look–aka business casual–try an untucked button-up shirt with jeans and a fitted sport coat. Make sure the shirt is shorter than your jacket. We didn’t do it for this photo, but if it’s cold enough, consider the sport coat a middle layer and finish the outfit with a tailored overcoat in a classic navy, camel or black.”

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.
