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!

What to wear when visiting NYC this fall

November 1st, 2013

The weather recently has been a bit wild, ranging from sunny and warm afternoons to chilly windy nights. Our suggestion on dreassing for NYC this fall-wear layers! Not only is layering your outfit a fashion statement, but it allows you flexibility throughout the day and into the evening as the weather changes. Key pieces to incorporate this fall:

  • Hats- Wide rimmed, floppy, colorful, there are so many styles (making this trend work for a wide variety of face shapes accross the board). Hats are “so in” right now, fun to wear, and an easy on/off as weather permits! Try these styles- cloche, bowler, beanie, fedora, beret.
  • Scarves- Offer a little protection to your neck, feel cozy, and look chic! Cashmere, knit, wraps, knotted, tied, infinity…the choices go on and on! Always a statement piece and easy to wear.
  • Cashmere blend socks- Not only are they super warm, comfortable, and able to fit inside your favorite boots- your toes will appreciate the added comfort with all the walking you will be doing in the city.
  • Leather jacket-  The undying NYC trend. Fitted, moto, cropped, embellished- whichever way to want to wear it, these jackets are slimming AND warm.
  • Vests/Capes- These styles have resurfaced from fashion history and are chic when worn correctly! Keep it simple-when using these pieces as your top layer, stick with solid greys, blacks and camel. As for the adventurous, try these fun outerwear trends: leather trim, color fur, herringbone, houndstooth, pinstripes, and Prince of Wales checks. Hoods and high necklines are also ways to ward off the NYC wind.
