Layering is essential when you work and live in NYC - it might be freezing outside, but super hot in your office! So it's always a good idea to wear layers, where it's easy to shed if needed.
The asymmetric hem or shark tooth hem cardigan is fun and easy to wear. You can layer it up for a cozy look, or throw it over a dress for a night out. Here, I wore it over a simple black cami and gray boucle shorts inspired by dolphin shorts, but modernized with leather piping and waistband. All these (not quite 50 yet) shades of grey creates a monochromatic layered look.
To top off my "cool city" look (haha I wish!), I wore my new thigh high lace up boots. Not only are they fashionable, but easy to wear since you can loosen them if your calf circumference isn't as tiny as those models... or wear it with an open top look.
