Much like the rest of the world universe, I immediately became a victim of Adele-itis as soon as the siren dropped her comeback single “Hello” in October. But after watching the video at least 30 times — not counting my restarts to see her close her flip phone — it hit me that the black and white gem was a video style post waiting to happen. It took me awhile to finally get around to it, but I refused to close out 2015 without making this post reality.

Her leading man Tristan Wilds‘ looks in the video in no way rival Adele’s checkered coat or cozy fur. But there was one standout piece that served as inspiration for my first video style story — the grey cable knit sweater he rocked during one of the doomed couple’s flashbacks.

So if you’re looking to leave your lover calling your phone 1000 times to organize a post-breakup chat, the cable knit sweaters I gathered above may be just what you need.

You can also catch the video for “Hello” below if you’ve been disconnected from basically all things related to life for the last two months and need to catch up!

I went several years without a camo jacket as part of my wardrobe. But when I finally decided to make the leap, I knew exactly where I’d kick off my hunt for the perfect layering piece — the thrift store.

After a pretty lengthy search, I decided to add the jacket above to my outerwear collection. And it has remained a trusty go-to ever since. 

I have always been a fan of the versatility that comes with a camo jacket. You can wear it over a T-shirt during the summer or toss it over a sweatshirt and button down during the cooler fall months. And seeing that most thrift store camo jackets are unlined, they can also be easily be worn under even bulkier jackets come winter time.

I obviously went for the middle option with my latest look, letting my camo layer make the biggest statement after pairing it with one of my favorite worn-in crewneck sweatshirts and a blue button-down shirt. I added dark denim and black wingtips to ground the moody look, topping it off with a black fedora.

It has been an unexpectedly mild December in New York City this year, and I must admit that I’m not yet longing for the warmth of summer! So what better way to give a timely nod to the perfectly crisp temps we are currently experiencing than with a listen to Lenny Kravitz‘s album Are You Gonna Go My Way and a look that’s equally as chill.

I picked up my Lenny T-shirt during a random shopping trip and paired it with a pair of jeans I distressed myself and my black wingtips. And with the addition of a navy and black snapback, the look quickly defined my take on comfy cool.
