This past Thursday I had the honor of attending a special dinner for AG Jeans’ new collection launch in collaboration with Esquire Magazine. In this dinner I saw some of my fellow blogger colleagues and met some pretty cool people as well. The whole purpose of the dinner was of course for us to have a glance at the upcoming collection and to celebrate the success of fashion & pop culture photographer Albert Watson.

It was amazing to see how Mr. Watson captured some of the most iconic shots of the past three decades, one of them including the most recognized portrait of Steve Jobs. Other shots included very emotional and political scenes, as well as portraits of supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. I’ve always enjoyed fashion photography and by seeing the work of someone that has shot numerous Vogue Covers made me so aware about my own work and which direction I want my work to go.

My look for this dinner was denim on denim, a very thick and dark texture from AG Jeans’ new collection jacket and pants, an oversized sweater from the streetwear brand Misbhv, classic Vans and rings from Miansai.

One of the things that I like about living in New York is that everywhere you transport yourself to you can find totally different surroundings with people dressing on so many different styles. Brooklyn is known for being the hipster neighborhood where the “cool kids” live.

As I’ve mentioned before, high-end streetwear is growing on me. I’ve been learning more and more about streetwear designers, what are the hypebeast trends and how to style them in a chic way that fits my original style. Someone asked me the other day if my style was changing on purpose. I responded to that person that I not necessarily fit in one single style, but that I knew what trends didn’t go well on me. I feel identified with a sporty-streetwear look or a total chic look, while wearing high-end designer pieces combined with generic brands. One day find me walking down the streets in Soho wearing all black and a statement jacket, the other day you’ll see me wearing clear glasses, a chic turtleneck and cropped dressy pants.

I must admit that I was inspired on this look by a European blogger that I’ve been following for a while. I was amused on how he could still look chic wearing a sweatshirt wrapped around his waist and wearing a hoodie with combat/lace-up boots. Red was the option, I pulled a pair of hugo boss red socks I had bought over Christmas for a photoshoot with Mr Porter and to my surprise the pop-of color paid off, matching the sweatshirt. In the pictures you will be able to see how I styled this look initially and then a spin-off by taking the hoodie off and wearing the sweatshirt alone for a more safe option.

I’ll be leaving below some links to where you can find similar items for the pieces I’m wearing.

I’m sure you guys have been seeing the new trend with bags, specially fanny packs worn as crossbody bags. These bags are the new it-accessory for both men and women.  I must confess that I’m obsessed with them, specially if they are some sort of vintage find.

I was searching the closets of my apartment the other day and I found this old a-f cross body bag. I immediately had an outfit idea, why not?

I thought this bag would look good styled in a very streetstyle-chic way. I had in mind that wearing jeans, a simple two-tone striped shirt and slippers would be the perfect outfit to not overshadow the bag, but complement it and make the whole look a bit more current.

My advice for wearing these bags, specially when they are vintage and you have no idea what brand or designer they are, is wearing a simple outfit that makes it stand out. Let the bag be the statement piece, unless you want it to be a complement to a colorful, Mix N’ Match look. Oversized and neutral tones are always a safe option. It’s all about your style and what functionality you want the bag to take.
