This past weekend I ventured to Central Park to witness the small window of autumn that we have here in New York. As did the rest of the city. I’ve been learning that while NYC is so big, it’s very condensed and when there is an inkling of fun things to do in the city, everybody gets in on it. As it has been getting cooler and cooler in the city, I’ve been excited to try out a new spin on an American classic from Old Navy – their Built-in Warm Denim and figured Central Park would be the perfect place to give it a test run! So this denim from Old Navy is pretty great. On the outside, the Slim Built-In Warm Denim is your standard jean in terms of cut: 5-pocket pant with rivets and a zip fly. The fit was great on me ~ it is slim through the waist and the thigh and throughout the leg as well to minimize bagginess.. but it wasn’t so tight that I felt like I am wearing a skinny jean. They fit great. Now for the rad part of these jeans: the denim has been brushed on the inside of the pant, creating a super-soft and warm layer that really does keep your legs warm. The jeans are instantly so cozy and feel great on your legs. Because the jeans have Old Navy’s Built-In Flex stretch technology, they still have some great flexibility, which I love! I’m 6′ and wearing a 31×30, for reference.
To complete this outfit, I wore a grey Crew-Neck Sweater, which will be a great basic layer for me this fall and winter. It’s a versatile and neutral heathered grey that will go with nearly everything in my closet – I highly recommend a piece like this for the season! The Jacket is from Old Navy as well and it’s a fun one. It’s their Plaid Wool-Blend Sherpa-lined Shirt Jacket and it goes so well with the jeans because it too is so cozy and soft! I love the sherpa spread collar as the plush sherpa lining extends throughout the body of the coat. The piece is equipped with snap-buttons on the cuffs and running down the placket – which I love. If you’re in NYC, have you headed to Central Park while fall is in full swing?
