#guystyle: winter '16

Fingers crossed, winter is over in the city. We've already experienced a few teases of warmer weather to come even though it's "cold" again this week, so it's probably best to say we're in "transition season." Regardless, I wanted to share a recap of the menswear shoots that I did this season with the help of my friend and fellow content creator Noah Williams.

I've never considered myself the most "in the know" when it comes to menswear trends, but I've continued to learn as I've lived here. (There are just so many well dressed people here.) Mainly, function overtakes fashion for me given my active lifestyle, zipping around the city. But there's still opportunity to spice it up with color, layers, and textures. 

In the end, as you'll see below, I stayed true to some winter essentials and paired them with a few new (to me) things. And I'm more than excited about spring—sky's out, thighs out, ha! 

 This  Barbour  jacket was the best investment I made in the fall/winter. (SoHo)

 These  Richer + Poorer  socks pulled the look together better than first expected. (Bryant Park)

 I changed my hair, and I don't know when I'll go back to the "Southern Swoop." (Brooklyn)

 I only wore my "heavy jacket" a few times this year—many folks thought it was new. (West Vill)

Again, a big thank you goes to Noah for the friendship and the photo tips. This is the first season I consistently went on "shoots" around the city in efforts to feature my style while experiencing various neighborhoods. How do you think it went? Feel free to comment below.
