After the popularity of the olive green padded jacket in my first Bright.Style post for Joe Fresh, I decided to show how to you can wear this so-hot-right-now hue in mens chinos, too! So, I headed out of New York City for an afternoon of fun on the farm in my cozy fall layers. Check out the full look after the jump!
For this look I wanted to style up an outfit that could be the perfect go-to for those days when you escape the city. Those impromptu afternoon adventures where you jump in the car and head to the countryside for bracing walks, crisp fall air and, of course, time to indulge in seasonal tasty treats!I tucked the chinos into my boots so that I looked smart and felt comfortable (goodbye cold drafts!) as I explored the pumpkin and apple farm.The thing about this time of year, especially in New York, is how much the temperature can fluctuate throughout the day. I combat this sartorial issue with layers: a comfortable chambray shirt worn under an oh-so-soft grey cashmere sweater gave me the option to look stylish on the farm when the sun was in and out!And when the chill really kicked in while out picking pumpkins for fall decor, I wrap up in padded jacket (similar) to stay warm! My favorite time weather is when it’s not so cold that you need to wrap up, but rather just chilly enough for layers and an open jacket. The best!Wearing chinos with winter boots is an easy way to smarten your overall look. Pairing the chinos with a shirt/sweater combo also elevates the outfit. The result is a look which is sophisticated, stylish but still comfortable and informal enough for an afternoon of fall fun in the sun! // Art direction by Will Taylor | Photography by Jean-Laurent Gaudy | Posted in partnership with Joe Fresh and rewardStyle; all views my own.
