Sweater Weather

When you imagine winter-ware, and specifically sweaters, what sorts of words come to mind? Cuddly, yes. Oversized, perhaps. Knitted, yes of course. But there is so much more to these winter-weather staples! We are seeing sweaters in vastly different shapes, silhouettes, and styles. Cropped, leather accents, boat-neck, off the shoulder, tie-details. You name it and it’s probably on a sweater! Who says sweaters can’t be sexy, after all? Yes, they’re east to toss on and amazing to snuggle up in on a cold evening, but they can also be the star of your winter ensemble. Here we have a homage to old Hollywood, think: casual Marilyn Monroe with this off-the-shoulder black sweater from French Connection. Paired with dark, slimmed jeans, and a great, strappy heel, you are rocking a timeless look while also feeling comfortable for whatever the winter may bring. We hope you feel inspired to create a look with your sweaters as the main event rather than just another layering piece.

Bending the Rules

Let’s be honest – the fun and creativity of fashion and self-expression can kind of get pushed aside by “rules” you hear about as your brought up. Things like: you cant wear white after Labor Day (where did that rule even come from?!), or you cant wear black and brown together, or this body shape can only wear this silhouette. These parameters probably originated with good intentions, but at this point we are ready to leave those in the past! No matter what the season, you shouldn’t feel obligated to banish some shades to the back of the closet. Pastel shades are a typically-found Spring and Summertime staple, but why not in winter? Winter white is a thing, after all! This beautiful lilac coat is the perfect winter jacket that isn’t your typical darker color shade. Everything around you may say to Go Dark this Winter, but don’t feel like you have to if those lilacs and pale yellows and creams are calling your name! Fashion rules are meant to be broken!
