The Polished Alternative

The Oversized Sweater: try slim trousers or a pencil skirt!
Pairing an oversized sweater with skinny jeans is a given.
The combo has proved to be a casual wardrobe staple.
But are there any other items that can readily be paired?
For example, how can one make the favorite oversized sweater
office ready and work appropriate? Enter this season's knit trend.
Instead of skinny jeans, try pairing the sweater with either
fitted trousers or a pencil skirt.
Doing so immediately takes the outfit up a notch,
especially when paired with heels or a pair of classy oxfords.
But what about color? For starters, this outfit formula
always is a success in shades of black, gray, and white.
If black is a bit too plain for you, try navy instead.
If you're feeling bold in the realm of colors, go for it!
A jewel tone sweater would make a fantastic statement piece
and pair well with a gray pencil skirt or trousers.
But whatever you wear, and however you pair it,
remember to do so confidently! Because you look fantastic.

Mind the Shoes


So the great and big question when it comes to
chunky and oversized knits is... how do you pull it off?
How do you keep the look cohesive, polished, and chic?
How do you avoid spiraling down into the zone of
grumpy-frumpy-I-just-woke-up-and-threw-on-this-sweater?
 There's one sure fire way. One that cannot help but succeed.
M i n d   t h e   s h o e s .
It's as simple as that. Want to make your outfit look as
though you've put a little effort and thought into it?
It's as easy as donning a polished pair of shoes.
Besides producing an instant chic vibe, a pair of classy shoes 
can help combat the slouch and comfort of an oversized knit.
It could be as easy as lacing up a classic pair of oxfords
or slipping on an elegant pair of heels.

But what about the rest of the outfit?
We're all fairly comfortable with the sweater and 
skinny jeans combo, but tomorrow, we'll be looking 
at a few alternatives to the normal denim go-to.

More Than Sweaters

What is one of the most delicious and wonderful things
about the fall and winter season? Besides snuggling up
with a blanket and hot cocoa in front of a roaring fire... 
definitely snuggling and bundling up in cozy knits!
We're all familiar with the idea of cozy oversized sweaters,
but this season, designers took it just a step further.
Today, let's cover the basics of the knit for this season!
Right off the bat... it's not just sweaters.
Designers went a little crazy and overboard with their knits.
Knits took the form of oversized dresses and slouchy skirts as well.
And knit scarves... and headbands... and hats... because why not?
Why not just take comfort dressing to a whole new level?
The hardest part about this season's knit trend then,
will be pulling it off in a way that's chic and put together.
Because honestly, oversized knits can easily go from super-cute
to ho-hum dumpy-frumpy. Tomorrow, we'll look at a few easy tips
to help keep us all in the super-cute zone of knitwear!

Oversized Knits

Warm. Cozy. Comfortable.
Sumptuous cable knit detail and deep ribbing.
Wide necklines, crew necks, and cowl collars.
Fuzzy yarns and variegated coloring.
Oversized sweaters were popular last year,
and they're making a big entrance again this fall.
The chilly weather might not be here quite yet
(although Saturday was a delicious break from the warm temps)
but it's never too early to start dreaming of fall.
We're all familiar with the favorite combo of
oversized sweater and skinny jeans, but this year,
designers have taken a different tack with the comfy knit.
Join us this week as we go over the new ways to 
pair and wear these knitted fall essentials!

The Recap on Stripes

It's the weekend already, ladies!
Since today is Saturday, let's do a quick recap of 
this season's stripe trend, and all the key points to remember.
First of all, the stripes are irregular-warped, wavy, and meandering.
These stripes are bizarre, off-kilter, and a decidedly bold.
Designers were inspired by the optical illusions of Op Art.
These stripes are the definition of a statement pattern--
so don't pair them with another statement piece.
Let the stripes be the dazzling focal point of the outfit.
If a striped sweater or dress is too much of a stripe statement,
try a pair of striped shoes or a striped clutch. However you
ultimately decide to wear the stripes, remember to keep
the rest of the outfit muted. Less is more--just keep it simple.
Let the stripes be themselves, and wear them boldly!

Understatement is Key

We've talked about the basics of the stripe trend.
We've discussed what makes it different, and how to wear it.
Now it's time to pull it all together... it's time to talk
accessories. How do you accessorize the stripe trend?
One word: simplicity. Keep it simple. Don't overdo it.
Yesterday, we mentioned not pairing other statement pieces
with this season bold linear patterns. The very same applies
for shoes, handbags, jewelry. Keep it to a minimum.
Understatement will enhance the pattern and keep the
attention centered there, rather than drawing the eye away.
Think black, white, or beige when it comes to your shoes
and purse. Where jewelry is concerned, utilize simple
chains and minimalist bracelets or bangles.
And in doing so, let the stripes stand out and dazzle!
