After Bostonians endured the worst of winters, summer’s already halfway over and the weather has the nerve to be…weird. With scattered showers almost every week, I’ve found myself reaching for beanies more often than one expects in July. Lightweight joggers and oversized sweaters that tie easily around the waist are key pieces right now. Animal prints don’t have to be too dressy or ultra-feminine in a sporty context, so try pairing them with your favorite sneakers for a fun, casual look.

1Q1A6987Has anyone else noticed that all women’s Nikes are neon pink these days? It may seem silly, but I custom designed these Nike Airmax sneakers with NikeID because I just couldn’t find a pair of sleek black sneakers anywhere. I took them for a walk in Central Square with my Sandro coat, American Apparel lime green sweater, Vince pants, ombre beanie, Oliver Peoples sunglasses, and my Alexander Wang Marion bag. 1Q1A7001

BANG BANG!

Why some staples need a makeover, and why others should remain untouched…1Q1A6792Revamped staples can be a wonderful thing. Dressed up versions of athletic classics like sweatshirts and joggers, for example, are huge right now, which makes chic comfort easy to achieve. Suddenly I can’t imagine life without my Sandro graphic sweatshirt and Vince jogger pants. Other times, however, designers get so caught up trying to reinvent classics that they’re just not classic anymore…

Believe it or not, I didn’t have a black leather jacket until today. I bought a simple, surprisingly real-looking faux leather bomber at Urban Outfitters in the tenth grade, and wore it constantly until it finally bit the dust last year. So, I’ve been looking for a more grown-up replacement ever since, only to find myself bombarded by embellishments on embellishments—designers have been overloading leathers with quilted shoulders, overly-dramatic collars, colors that go with just about nothing, and enough buckles and zippers to render them straight-up straight jackets. Leather is an investment, and a leather jacket should be versatile above all. Committing to a leather jacket has to be in the name of good old fashioned true love, because if you fall under the spell of fleeting trends, you’re going to want a divorce within the next two years, and that’ll cost ya.

Even the most basic black leather jacket looks badass, no theatrics necessary. Enter AllSaints Belvedere Jacket. We’re going to be together for a long time.1Q1A6813
