SWEATER AND BUTTON DOWN

On those mornings when everything feels rushed and you have no time to plan, grab a button down blouse and pair with your favorite pullover sweater for quick, classic office wear style. Choose from a wide variety of Liberty Garden and Hale Bob button down blouses at our convenient online store, one for any occasion and every style. Top with Liberty Garden’s ivory ultra suede sweater shirt and complete with AC Collection’s high waisted skinny jeans or pants. You’ll be out the door, espresso in hand, and rocking your workplace in no time.

The blouse and sweater style is also perfect for casual days out running errands, or coffee with the girls. When you’ve exhausted all your newest Fall and Winter fashion purchases, mix and match items from your closet for a stylish yet warm Winter look. Start with Joe’s Jeans’ cropped rolled pants or Citizen’s of Humanity’s relaxed Dylan cropped jeans and top with Ann Taylor’s classic oversized white button down shirt  paired with Chloe’s asymmetric hem sweater in trending blush pink. Accessorize with Betsey Johnson’s NEW charm bracelet set and a comfy pair of leopard print kitten heels from Cole Haan and you are ready to start your day off in style.

SWEATER DRESS

Another “no brainer” classic look to return this Winter is the sweater dress. On your busiest days, simply throw on your favorite sweater dress style, pair with an oversized bag and your favorite boots, and you are ready for any occasion morning, noon, and night. We love Current/Elliot’s soft gray wool and cashmere blend dress accessorized with booties from Jeffrey Campbell,  chunky gold bangles from Kendra Scottand a black leather bag from Kate Spade. Sweep your hair into a chic topknot and segue into the evening hours by combining your sweater dress with Vince Camuto’s “Sugar Plum” suede pumps and a sparkling gold clutch from Loeffler Randall.

Make your sweater dress go “double duty” and combine with your favorite leather leggings or skinny jeans for a completely different look. This is also a great style for chillier Winter days when the weather is at it’s snowiest. Try pairing with Hale Bob’s black quilted faux leather or go with the mixed media leggings. Spread a bit of cheer at your next holiday party by combining with Hale Bob’s red ultra suede leggings or go “Winter Wonderland” in the soft ivory suede. If leggings aren’t your style, go with your favorite pair of skinny pants like Hudson’s black super skinny jeans or go matching with Citizen’s of Humanity’s grey stretch skinnies. At your next holiday event, arrive in the colors of the Season’s by pairing your sweater dress with Hudson’s deep red skinny jeans or go bright in Hale Bob’s green cotton sateen pants. However you choose to style, the sweater dress is definitely a versatile choice to add to your wardrobe collection this Winter.

STRIPED SWEATER AND MIDI SKIRT

From Valentino to Miu Miu to Isabel Marant, stripes are definitely one of this Season’s trendiest patterns. Echoing the iconic candy cane, what better time to try a striped sweater than during the holidays. Update the look for Winter 2015 by pairing with your favorite midi length skirt, one of this Season’s trendiest skirt lengths. We like Madewell’s cable knit striped sweater or go with Philosophy’s cozy cashmere striped sweater with star detailing, perfect on your next party or event. Who says you have to stick to black and white only? Get colorful this Season in Rag and Bone’s orange and red toned sweater or change things up and go with Tory Burch’s asymmetrical striped fitted sweater. For a perfectly polished office look, pair your striped sweater with Hale Bob’s lace midi length pencil skirt in basic black or soft grey.

Bring a bit of vintage classic 50’s style to your next holiday party in your favorite striped sweater and A-line midi skirt. Get a similar look as pictured above with Theory’s solid black A line skirt accessorized with a beige suede jacket, Vivienne Westwood’s legendary mini Yasmine black handbag, and leopard ankle strap heels from Brooks Brothers. If you are feeling especially festive and daring, go with this Season’s popular runway “mixed print” look in your striped sweater and red plaid midi skirt from Kate Spade. Work or play. Parties or errands. You are sure to look stylish and trendy in your sweater and midi skirt combo this year.

SWEATER AND OVERALLS

With the revival of 90’s fashion this Season, the return of the overalls is inevitable. What better way to try out one of this year’s trending pant styles than to pair with your favorite cozy turtleneck or chunky knit sweater. For an updated style, look for overalls in different colors and patterns such as navy, rust, or striped, and unique material such as leather, cotton, or knit. For dressier occasions, we like Topshop’s cropped faux leather overalls paired with Hale Bob’s ivory sweater knit lace top or the black faux leather long sleeve shirt and Michael Kors’ jeweled ankle strap pumps. On casual Winter days, try wide leg steel gray overall pants from YOOX topped with DKNY’s ivory chunky knit turtleneck and Rag & Bone’s cozy Shearling lined clog booties. You’ll definitely stand out from among the rest this year in your overall pant style. And, your purchase will go double duty for you as designers from Nicole Miller to Adam Lippes keep overalls trending on the runway for Spring Fashion 2016.

LOTS OF LAYERS

It’s easy to stay warm yet fashionable with this Season’s trending poncho and sweater “robe” coat options. Stay warm with ponchos made from wool and cashmere and stay fashionable with plaid, striped, and jewel toned color patterns. Choose a perfect Winter outfit with Luisa Brini’s navy plaid poncho paired with Hale Bob’s rust colored turtleneck top layered over Hudson’s Nico super skinny navy jeans tucked into knee high leather boots from Tory Burch. Opt for the striped look with MIH Jeans’ oversized reversible wool blend poncho, and segue into the evening hours by topping your favorite cocktail dress with Halston Heritage’s elegant black mock-neck ribbed poncho. Casual or dressy, be sure to add the poncho into your Winter wardrobe this year.

The sweater robe coat is another favorite trending sweater find this year. Warmer than a sweater yet lighter than a coat, this jacket is a perfect layering option and also great to wear on warmer Winter days. We love Hale Bob’s teal wool sweater coat or go with the longer “robe” style in the Birdseye knit sweater coat in teal, purple, and beige from Hale Bob. Paired with your skinny jeans for daytime activities, and thrown over your favorite cocktail dress for evening, the sweater robe coat is your perfect styling option this Season.

SWEATER SCARF

One of the simplest ways to stay warm yet fashionable throughout the Winter season is to make your favorite sweater double as a chic scarf by day and warm outerwear by night. Take your favorite sweater such as Hale Bob’s fur trimmed sweatshirt and cable knit sweater or the terry knit pullover with cable knit sleeves and tie around your shoulders for perfect Winter style. As the sun sets, pull over your evening outfit to stay warm against the night air. No matter which sweater style you choose, try this simple yet chic “sweater scarf” style this Season.

No matter which sweater style you prefer, there are many creative ways to style your outfit this Season rather than relying on the predictable sweater and jeans combo. Pair with a midi skirt for your next holiday party. Or combine with slacks and a button down on your way to the office. Or go back in time and style under your new pair of vintage 90’s overalls.
