How It’s Done:
The Penny Windowpane Top

 We asked our friend Coco—a British-born, NYC-based writer who’s currently at work on her first novel—to show us how she’s wearing our Penny top around her West Village neighborhood. Warning: The following pictures may cause major outfit—and hair—envy. 


Writing and doing research for her book at the Jefferson Market Library 

“I like the idea of mixing a feminine top with something a bit more boyish, like a baseball cap and penny loafers. I also like the idea of being mistaken for someone who knows anything about sports (as opposed to someone who until recently thought the Mets were a basketball team).” 

 “Windowpane checks are easier to wear than I expected—but still interesting enough to add a bit of oomph to a pair of jeans or chinos.”

“Chinos and sneakers feel very classic American to me, in a good way. Since I’m an unclassic American (I moved here as a teenager), it’s a fun vibe to channel.”
