Chunky Cable Knits

Fashion, Luxury, Reality, Style

When my alarm is going off and I hear the winter wind whistling against my window, the last thing I want to do is get out of my warm, cozy bed and venture into the freezing cold. Rather than sleep in, try layering under warm, chunky cable knits.

Chunky Knits in Luxury

BOY. BY BAND OF OUTSIDERS sweater / ERDEM pants / DKNY coat / MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA booties / PROENZA SCHOULER bag / COACH fur scarf

A simple white collared shirt would be perfect under this Boy. by Band of Outsiders sweater (and yes, tuck it in.) To add some trendy individuality (oxymoron?) you can attach collar tips like these ones from ASOS:

The modern feel they have works best with the outfit above, mainly because this look is a little bit more relaxed:

ROMWE sweater $80 / RIVER ISLAND jeans $55 / UNTOLD coat $76 / OASAP boots $63 / TOPSHOP bag $68 / WHITE HOUSE BLACK MARKET faux fur scarf $50

This sweater has much more of a lumberjack vibe, obviously made chic by the surrounding pieces. Nonetheless it would look foolish with a collared shirt layered underneath. It could also potentially make the outfit seem like it’s trying too hard to look good. This look is trendy enough with it’s mixed prints (floral and houndstooth,) yet still understated. Always a good combination.

Blush Coat Two Ways: Casual

Fashion, Style

I love dressing for winter.  There are so many textures and rich colors to play around with.  I’m loving maroon/burgundy colors for the fall and winter.  (You’ll be seeing a lot of them here the next couple of days!)  I also think the color is so beautiful against the blush color of the coat.

This knit is so wonderful.  I think that a beautiful cable knit should be a staple of everyone’s winter wardrobes.  It should be cozy, but fitted enough to look put together.  The black scarf is so great (who could complain about Burberry cashmere?)  I love scarves and think everyone should have at least a black one and a white one. They are really a great way to add depth to an outfit.

I also really love matching the bag to the pants.  It’s a play on the monochromatic trend without being too literal.  And the shoes and earrings are phenom.  All of the elements come together to make a beautiful fall-to-winter transitory outfit.
