Lake Street & Layers

Living in Chicago for most of my life, there is one thing you can always count on, the unpredictable weather….its INSANE how much the temperature can fluctuate from day to day and that’s especially evident during the fall months.  Which is why its a must to add layers to your wardrobe during this time of year.  The genius of layering is that you can always add or remove a layer which is great when you have no idea what type of weather you will encounter from hour to hour.Nyron Fall 2016 Outdoor ChicagoLayering is not as difficult as most guys think it is…here’s the trick, as long as you pay attention to the length of each layer you will look fine.  My suggestion is never wear layers that are all the same length…in this look, you can see that the H & M long fit t-shirt perfectly compliments the slightly shorter fleece hoodie.  I then topped it off with a knee length wool overcoat.  The difference in lengths not only looks more stylish, its a great way to ensure that people actually see the layers you are wearing…if every piece of clothing is the same length it all just kind of blends together…varying your lengths will make each piece stand out on its own.
