Because New York was so hot during Fashion Week, I wore a lot of crop tops. Why the leather jacket then? Well, a few reasons… unless I’m by the beach or it’s really scorching hot (like this time) I don’t like exposing my top. I’ve always been a little more developed up there so ever since I was young, I’ve been a bit self conscious and I guess that just never left me. Another reason is, it’s so freakin’ cold inside the shows! Don’t want my headlights on you know? Plus, the leather jacket (over the shoulder) is more appropriate when walking around the streets in New York.
Tropical prints are one of my favorites. I wore a different version of tropical prints last year during Fashion Week and it’s always fun wearing prints that you’d normally wear during vacation, out and about!
…and to answer everyone’s favorite question: Why the jacket over the shoulder? I’ve been wearing my jackets like capes ever since I lived in San Francisco. It was mainly because I actually started wearing more jackets and coats when I was living there and I’ve always worn a lot of bracelets, so they kept getting stuck in the sleeves every time I put my jacket on or took it off. It’s also efficient when it’s hot but not hot enough, or cold, but not cold enough… Also, kinda cool when you’re jacket doesn’t fit you perfectly (maybe slightly big? I have this problem a lot due to narrow shoulders) and when your jacket is over your shoulder, it just looks dope. Knamean?
