> Layergram | Haute House Flower


As a San Francisco/Bay Area native, the majority of my early outfits revolved around layering. Spoiled as it may sound, worrying about being cold isn’t something that I’ve had to do much of; between going to college in Arizona, and subsequently moving to Southern California nine years ago.


Since I travel back to San Francisco  fairly regularly to visit my family, and am also always telling myself, “I’ll move to NYC one day”, I like to always make sure my layer game is en pointe.  To me, there is nothing more elegant than coats and artful layering.   Every time I’m back in New York for Fashion Week, I find myself taking a million mental notes on how to look sophisticated in the snow…and my NYC girls have it down to a science! So, when the weather finally cooled down in SoCal last week, I jumped at the chance to take my layering skills for a practice run.

    For guys, layering patterns is always a sophisticated look. Gingham shirt, solid slim cut charcoal blazer and black with white polka dot pocketsquare screams class, or a fitted white dress shirt, grey cardigan under a dark indigo, perfectly tailored Tom Ford suit… Holy @&$&!!
