Six layers on Highline


NYFW day six. I’ve never been in such a cold place but I knew in advantage that I was going to have lots of problems to find the proper clothes and make it fit into my suitcase. The most obvious solution was to buy wool coats and cashmere sweaters, but that wasn’t a smart choice for me because once I get back home they’ll accumulate dust in my closet, they’re too hot for my weather.

So layers were my solution, maybe I don’t have a nice wool coat because I don’t really need it, but I do have lots of jackets that together are warm enough and I can repeat a few times. On the sixth day my outfit choices were getting very small, so I improvised a casual outfit with lots of layers, 6 in total: a thermal shirt, a grey knitted sweater, a faux leather jacket, a coat that goes a little bit over my knees and a green parka which you already saw me wearing, on top of that two scarfs. Yes, it was enough.


NYFW día seis. Sin haber estado jamás en un lugar tan helado sabía incluso por adelantado que tendría problemas para encontrar ropa adecuada y que toda cupiese en el límite de mi maleta. La solución más obvia es comprar abrigos de lana y tejidos de cashemir, pero la verdad es que en mi caso no sería muy inteligente porque una vez que regrese a casa no los volvería a usar nunca, me moriría de calor. 

Así que las capas fueron la solución para mi, tal vez no tengo un buen abrigo de lana porque no lo necesito, pero sí tengo muchas chaquetas que juntas son suficientemente acogedoras y que puedo repetir varias veces. En el sexto día ya me quedaban pocas opciones para vestir, y de forma improvisada armé un conjunto casual pero con muchas capas, en total fueron 6: una camiseta térmica, suéter tejido gris, una chaqueta de piel sintética, un abrigo que llega a las rodillas y una parka color militar que ya me vieron usar, además de dos bufandas. Sí, fue suficiente.
