A week with The Style Blogger, Dan Trepanier (an introduction for those unfamiliar), continues today in his East Village neighborhood of New York. It is a brilliant time of year in the city. Temperatures are waning, leaves turning, and your shawl collar cardigans and heavy knits should be keeping you warm. Trepanier’s cardigan is half smoking jacket, half country jacket in a Glen plaid (short for Glen Urquhart plaid) weave. The shawl collar lends itself to a relaxed elegance, as if you should embrace the cool of autumn any other way.
"I don't really consider myself a 'prep', and I certainly haven't lived a lifestyle that can be considered 'WASPy,' but my style is without a doubt influenced by the prep aesthetic." —Dan Trepanier

Noteworthy (Trepanier): Chunky knits are my favorite transitional weather outerwear, especially when layered with finer-gauge knits. This particular woolly belted cardigan feels part young playboy, part old college professor.
Noteworthy (Castleberry): Persol sunglasses, navy cord cuffed trousers, desert boot, bellows pockets, keeps it simple under cardigan.
