Sweater Weather

October 14th, 2014

Sweaters are a huge trend this season, major score!

All pros, no cons:
1. They are the most comfortable thing on the planet
2. Fashionable item that will actually keep you warm
3. Easy to layer-stick to basic colors and neutral shades

Not even close to a sweater dress, this fitted long length number with side slits is a must have from Zara’s fall collection! Throw it over anything and call it a day.

Layering inspiration-keep it simple and stick to similar hues/colors within your layers. Always remember to balance a big sweater with a slim bottom silhouettes (like a skinny jean).

Turtleneck sweater-we give it the go ahead as long is it has some variation from the ones you used to wear skiing. For example, the cowl neckline adds a chic element in addition to layering over a floral dress.

Oversized knits-the cardigan with bulk, the thick sweater that subs as a jacket. This look is totally in right now, and totally doable on all women. Give your leather jacket a day of rest and enjoy the fall weather while you can in a chunky knit!
