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.

e2e717c0e28bf6bd9c9ee4781ea7e3d7

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.

Karlie-Kloss-photographed-Craig-McDean

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. Think out of the box this Winter and try a few new fashion creations all your own. We’d love to hear your ideas on how you will style your favorite cozy sweaters this year.

LOOKING GREAT IN LAYERS

d97cea550e10b0ab1e2ed3f0a0cc59cd

It’s that awkward transition season between Winter and Spring, when the cold winds are still blowing yet the sun warms you during the day. To wear a coat or not? To try that new Spring dress or not? Don’t worry. We have you covered. Our favorite way to transition into the fluctuating Seasons is to layer. Take a peek at our favorite layering fashion finds this week. We show you how to layer in style, without feeling bulky or outdated. While you may want to add a new accessory or jacket for chic layering, many of our favorite layering styles can be found right now in your own closet. See our favorite styles below, and start layering.

FUR VEST

One of our favorite style trends this Season is the fur vest, updated for 2015 in a variety of bright colors. Even on chilly days the fur vest is an easy way to stay warm yet stylish and can easily be paired with your favorite leggings, jeans, skirt, or even floral Spring dress. We love Hale Bob’s red rabbit fur vest layered over your favorite sweater, paired with Hale Bob’s black faux leather leggings. Accessorize with Rag and Bone chunky heeled ankle boots for chillier days and Tory Burch sandals for warmer Spring days.

SLEEVELESS SHIFT DRESS

No need to wait to bring out your favorite Summer shift dresses. Go ahead and pull them out, layering your favorite button up shirt or sweater for chillier days. If the day warms up, simply remove your outer layer and you are ready to soak up the sun’s rays. Pair Hale Bob’s black studded sheath dress with this season’s trendy gladiator sandals from Ralph Lauren, and layer with a fitted white tee and gray James Perse cropped sweater for a stylish, yet warm, layered look for Spring.

CHUNKY KNIT SWEATER

Sweaters are the prefect layering option for fluctuating temperatures during the Spring months. Far less bulky than coats or jackets, you can easily layer your favorite sweater over a tee or button down, or both, to stay warm against the cold breeze. Sweaters can be removed and tied at the waist as temperatures warm. If you are in the market for a new sweater, we love Hale Bob’s gray ombre knit pullover, perfect to layer over a fitted tank or cami. For colder days, pair your sweater with a gingham button down from Bergdorf Goodman paired with your favorite skinny jeans.

SHIRTDRESS

We love the shirtdress for Spring styling. The shirtdress is perfect for warm days paired with chic lace-up wedges from Bergdorf Goodman and a floppy hat for Boho style. For chillier days, pair your shirtdress with black tights and Prada black kitten heels for an evening out. We love Hale Bob’s Cabana silk shirtdress in black and white floral, perfect for Spring fashion. The shirtdress can also double as a swimsuit coverup for a cool day at the beach or pool.

b84e110bd127f2410d22198381e568d1

SILK SCARF

Another simple yet effective way to stay warm through the Spring season is to throw on your favorite scarf for layered style. Since we are nearing the end of Winter, trade in your wool scarves for chic sheer silk scarves in a variety of prints and patterns. By simply covering your neck, heat is trapped and allows your entire body to stay warm and cozy without the need of a jacket. We love Have Bob’s purple pattern silk scarf, perfect for layering over your favorite crisp white button down for a day at the office. Or layer over one of your favorite Hale Bob patterned maxi dresses in a variety of prints and multi-colors. This Season don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns and colors. This Spring anything goes.

HIGH LOW LAYERED SKIRT

One of this Spring’s trendiest skirt styles is the high low skirt, seen all over the Runways for Spring 2015 Fashion, and making it’s way into stores everywhere. For a lovely layered look, pair your high low skirt with a fitted tank and a belted sweater like actress Olivia Palermo’s knit from European designer Witchery. We love Liberty Garden’s high low sheer tank dress, perfect for a Spring day or night on the town. For chillier days, fashion your high low dress with an Andean belted fringe sweater paired with chunky Loro Piana ankle booties for a trendy fashionable you.

BLACK LEGGINGS

Take your leggings into Springtime season with lots of fun layering options. For chillier days, pair your Hale Bob black Ponte leggings with a striped long sleeve knit top by Gucci. Go for one of Spring’s hot fashion statements and mix up your patterns by layering over your Gucci striped top, Hale Bob’s blue peacock printed belted sweater, accessorized with classic Jimmy Choo black suede heels and a hot red clutch by designer Judith Leiber. Leggings can also be paired with your favorite sleeveless dress and light sweater, or an oversized sweater tunic and Hale Bob scarf. However you choose to layer this Season, leggings are the perfect choice for endless fashion looks.

BOLERO JACKET

One of our favorite fashion items for layering is the Bolero jacket, a fitted jacket with lapels, easy to dress up or dress down. You can bring out your favorite summer shorts even on cooler Spring days by layering over warm tights or leggings paired with Salvatore Ferragamo ankle boots for daytime fun and Giuseppe Zanotti multi-color heels for nighttime glam. We love Hale Bob’s selection of Bolero Jackets, fitted just to flatter your figure and great for layering over shorts, jeans, skirts, or your evening cocktail dress. If you only add one jacket to your Springtime wardrobe this Season, choose the versatile Bolero jacket.

30b002c960a8a1449f5db36f4a6b614b

Fur Vest, Shift Dress, Knit Sweater, Shirtdress, Silk Scarf, High Low Skirt, Black Leggings, Bolero Jacket. With these eight items, there are endless fashion styles for Spring by mixing and matching, layering and combining. This Season, think out of the box, look into your closet, and think creatively for Spring. As the weather fluctuates from cool to warm, with rainy and snow days thrown into the mix, you will always be prepared for the abrupt changes in weather without sacrificing style. Streamline your fashion wardrobe and think “less is more.” Forgo the bulky coats and jackets from Winter style, and look for lighter fabrics to layer that won’t bulge but will still keep you warm. We’d love to hear from YOU our readers on how you plan to “layer” this Spring. Send us your thoughts and start preparing for the Springtime trends.

3c3c7a5abd550a2446bed5555e7ce498

SEQUINED SWEATER

Put a little “bling” in your winter wardrobe this Season and shop for a sequined sweater. As “Sweater Weather” approaches, glam up your fashion style with a chic sequined sweater to keep you warm yet fashionable at the same time. The sequined sweater is a perfect versatile look you can wear to the office, out and about, or to your next holiday party. For your next party, pair the chic gray button down sequined cardigan from Hale Bob with black or white palazzo pants and strappy heels.

WOOL WINTER SWEATER COAT

We’re loving this season’s sweater coat, just in time for “Sweater Weather.” The sweater coat can be used as a stylish overcoat paired with your winter outfit for chilly days, or it can stand alone as a chic sweater option. We love Hale Bob’s chic wool sweater coat with rabbit fur trim, in your choice of teal, black, or red. A great fashion statement for the office on chillier days, pair your sweater coat with a chic AC Collection pencil skirt and our favorite Jimmy Choo black leather pumps. For casual days, pair your sweater coat with sleek Hudson skinny jeans and a pair of Rag and Bone’s popular Harrow booties. The sweater coat is a great addition to your winter wardrobe this Season for those in-between days when the weather calls for a lighter cover-up rather than your usual heavy wool coat.

CHUNKY TURTLENECK SWEATER

One of our classic favorite “Sweater Weather” fashion looks is the iconic turtleneck sweater. This Season, however, “bigger is better” with fashion designers and the runways were full of chunky longer turtleneck sweaters with oversized necklines. From Prabal Gurung to Helmut Lang to  The Row, designers went for chunky, oversized turtlenecks for a comfy yet high fashion appeal. Go all out with this look, and accessorize to the max with big, bold bangles, an oversized handbag, your favorite skinny jeans, and ballerina flats. For chillier days, pair your turtleneck with a peacoat and booties. Our favorite chunky turtleneck sweaters this Season include Ralph Lauren’s cashmere turtleneck, Helmut Lang’s cozy knit pullover, and  Free People’s zip-front cable knit turtleneck. Check out our top picks and start shopping your cozy Winter wear.

LAYERED SWEATER

No need to forgo fashion on those rainy days. Brighten up your day by throwing on a pair of red hot skinnys paired with scarlet kitten heels and you are on your way to a fabulous fashion day. Compliment the “rainy day” look with a cozy cropped sweater layered over a crisp button down to keep you warm and stylish. We love this look from Boden USA, reminiscent of the iconic “Audrey Hepburn” style. Shop the look at Posh at Play with our Citizen’s of Humanity red Thompson skinny jeans paired with Boden’s crew neck sweater and red “Jackie”  kitten heels. Grab your umbrella and you are ready to brighten the rainy day with fabulous style.

Pair your cozy cape sweater with AC Collection’s silver metallic skinny jeans and chic leopard print heels from Nine West.

CROPPED SWEATER

Sweaters don’t have to just be reserved for jeans and leggings. This Season dress up “Sweater Weather” style by pairing up a cozy cropped sweater with your favorite skirt for a hot night on the town. Our favorite picks for this Season’s cropped sweaters are Sam Edelman’s berry cropped sweater, Ohne Titel ponte cropped sweater, and Chanel’s cool ice blue cropped sweater. Pair your cropped sweater with a chic quilted black leather skirt from Banana Republic, cozy wool tights, and chic black suede pumps. Accessorize with chic gold bangles and necklaces, and finish of with a bright blue Proenza Schouler clutch for a pop of color.

Oversized sweaters

BAGGY V-NECK SWEATER

One of our favorite sweater styles this Season- the baggy V-neck sweater. As “Sweater Weather” approaches, the cool, casual baggy V-neck sweater is a perfect option for layering over a tank or camisole for moderately cool days, or layering over a button-down blouse paired with a warm, wool scarf. For warmer Winter days, pair your V-neck sweater with chic “distressed” jeans and an oversized shoulder bag for an effortlessly chic fashion statement. We love ASOS’s fluffy cream knit off shoulder sweater or Lulu’s cream cable knit sweater paired with 7 for All Mankind’s dark wash bootcut jeans or BLANKNYC’S shredded boyfriend jeans. Look chic while staying warm for “Sweater Weather” season.

MENSWEAR MYSTIQUE

Everything old is new again. Big over-sized bulky menswear inspired silhouettes and fabrics are back in vogue this season. I guess we can at least be thankful they have ditched the ridiculous shoulder pads that made us all look like miniature line backers. Perhaps you, like me appreciate a well worn tweed or woven plaid; the juxtaposition of heavy fabrics reminiscent of a mahogany embellished mens club or smoking room from the 1920’s hanging delicately over a woman’s curves finished off with a fine pair of stilettos. Never fear, I have found a couple of beautiful coats with a modern take on the classic tweed and plaid that still have a luxurious feminine feel without making you look like you sneaked into grandpa’s closet and stole a couple pieces during his afternoon nap. Case in point this fabulous Hale Bob woolly tweed sweater coat with rabbit fur trim. Mixing his and hers is a smart way to embrace the Menswear trend without getting buried by it. Shop Posh at Play where we always have a great selection of women’s clothing.
