Finding Harlem Street Style: Arsene

Mother nature decided to curse us all with her long, icy fingers. I can almost picture her cackling loudly at our misery. I’m not sure what we did to deserve this, but she’s not remotely interested in our happiness right now. Temperatures for this past week have stayed in the teens and early twenties (Fahrenheit), while harsh cold winds attack our exposed skin.

Despite the miserable weather, I was still able to spot stylish Harlemites. This Harlem charmer kept it casual and simple with matching white, red, and blue  bomber jacket, sneakers (or as the Brits like to say, “trainers”), and beanie hat. He toned down his “MC Hammer” pants with a plain black hoody. I loved the playful look, so I had to start the series of “Finding Harlem Street Style” with him.
