Wearable Warmth

4 years ago by

Stylist Tori Lazar

With the onslaught of fall – the colors, the autumnal activities, the brisk temperatures (ones we’re just barely now reaching in New York…), comes the onslaught of, “it’s 49 degrees this morning and 71 degrees this afternoon, what in climate change’s name do I wear?”

But I’m not here to complain about the changing of seasons, that would be cliché (and misdirected since we should really be focused on said climate change), instead I’m here to advocate for the “thin knit.” It’s cozy, transitional, and it’s damn easy to wear. Throw on one piece or two – I mean, how good does Yohana look in her set? – and grab a jacket to bring it full circle through the night. Voila, your fall wardrobe.

Fall's response to a LBD. A v-neck to keep it spicy, long sleeves to keep it warm. Wear it on a day you have work and a holiday party.

Color blocking isn't reserved only for the risk takers. In fact, this style, in its colors and cut, is a modest approach. And imagine how cute it would look with a grey pullover (cashmere) and earrings (gold), but I'm just getting carried away.

A grey cardigan is a wardrobe obligation, a grey ribbed knit cardigan with a matching skirt (!) is a gift from a higher power. Wear it on its own or as a set, its guaranteed to check your boxes for chicness and comfort.

I never met a pink ruffle I didn't like. The turtleneck keeps it classy, and it's basically designed to be tucked into pants, of which I can imagine at least 10 pairs to wear with this little beaut.
