A flannel shirt is a winter layering must-have. So I always look forward to pulling out my trusty black and white plaid button-down when the temps start to dip a bit. I can easily toss it over a T-shirt — as I did in the look above — or even a long-sleeved button-down or denim jacket in the fall.
And even when we get a winter blast — such as with our new friend Winter Storm Jonas last weekend — my flannel serves as a warm layer when I wear it under my parka or sherpa-lined trucker jacket.
I typically like to let the shirt be the focus of a look, though, just like I did above. I stuck with mostly black elements to pull everything together and added a little texture with a black leather jacket and worn-in khaki chinos. Topped off with a beanie, I was ready to take on a slightly chilly night in the City.

Sometimes I run into pieces that I just know I must have after one glance, and my olive coach jacket I purchased this fall happened to be one of those of finds. It turned out to be a little more insulated than I expected, making for the perfect top layer if the temperatures aren’t too cold. And it is also roomy enough that I can still comfortably throw a denim jacket or sweatshirt under it if need be.
I paired it with my favorite pair of distressed denim jeans, an olive sweatshirt I found during a thrifting trip and my favorite black and white sneakers and Yankees snapback — making for a slightly moody moment on a crisp New York City day.
