What do you do when you don’t have proper winter clothes? The answer is to layer, layer, layer! I packed a bunch of my winter coats to New York but since I don’t have as many winter coats as most plus packing thick winter coats all in a suit case is a pain in the ass, I brought with me several layering pieces.

I brought my flared jeans out to wear in the cold. I wore knee high socks underneath my jeans because the cold air kept creeping in. Love that flare jeans are making a come back although I wish I was super tall so I don’t have to wear them with heels!

This black bandana isn’t a fashion statement. As little and thin it looks, wrapping it around my neck made me feel warm! I got this shearling vest to wear both in L.A. and New York, but for the cold, I layered it with my J. Brand leather jacket.

  5. Thanks Aimee – heading to NYC from West Coast Oz next week, similar climate to LA here. It still sounds cold there and even though it’s early Autumn here, it’s still hot – so this helps with packing ideas.

    I really enjoy how you put this outfit together! You made me more interested in boot cut jeans as well. From looking at your style, you would absolutely love this place named Fixate Boutique! You go for the same kind of sense of fashion you should definitely go give them a look at fixateboutique.com

  8. Hi Aimee
    I was wondering where you got the Chloe Clutch with the snakeskin strap? I only see the plain leather one from the link. Also do you know if that vest is still available?
    Thanks so much!

  9. Adore the 70s inspiration of these jeans, they are super retro and chic. The leather vest with the leather jacket is the most cool mix ever, it’s pure rock. This outfit is absolutely amazing, really original and so your style. The neck scarf is the perfect details and the clutch is fantastic. Wonderful
    Kisses

  11. Finally you are letting us in to the fabulous secret of how fashionistas deal with NYC cold. Thanks :)
    I also love your approach at wearing flared jeans, I have had a pair in my wardrobe for years, that I have just been painfully wanting to make a comeback, and now you just gave me the inspiration to bring them out of hibernation.

  12. Omg, I’ve lived in a similar climate in Europe for my whole life and you’ve done layering lots better than me. Luckily winter is ending for this year, but for the next ones to come, I’m following your tips instead of just hiding underneath a huge parka and fur-lined hood.
