The Sweater Coat: Vince

⁕⁕⁕

Update your outerwear with a chunky knit sweater coat. The Vince Honeycomb Knit Cardigan is a perfect piece for Fall/Winter. This versatile knit can be worn under heavy coats in cold weather or on it’s own in mild weather. A reliable piece that can make any outfit more wearable.

The draping on this sweater coat falls beautifully. For an effortless and flawless look, pair with a slim pant and bootie. Like the picture, add different textures like leather that pair nicely with the honeycomb pattern. If you need a little glitz and glamour – add a jeweled broach.

Keep cozy this winter in a stylish sweater coat.

5 under $50: Leggings

✯✯✯

Versatile to wear with just about anything, leggings are a comfortable and stylish solution to outfit woes. Available in a multitude of colors, textures and patterns leggings continue to evolve each season.

Leggings Tips & Tricks:

❄ To avoid looking tacky, think of leggings as tights rather than pants. Choose longer tunics/blouses/tops to camouflage the obvious.

❄ Transition summer dresses and skirts into winter by adding simple leggings and a great leather jacket.

❄ Texture is key for a night look. Try metallic or liquid leggings paired with simple sweaters/blouses/tops.

❄ Incorporate fancy flats, boots or a matching pump; monochromatic footwear will make legs appear longer and leaner.

Leggings are an easy way to stretch your wardrobe, here are 5 lovely leggings under $50.00.

Target ~ Merona Women’s Lounge Leggings: $12.99

ASOS ~ Leggings in Metallic Knit: $26.96

Victoria’s Secret ~ Liquid Leggings: $39.50

Topshop ~ Burgundy Velvet Legging: $45.00

Weekend Ensemble: Adidas by Stella McCartney

✯✯✯

This Father’s Day Weekend, golf is on the menu.

In 2004, Stella McCartney launched a joint-venture with Adidas. The line of sports performance-wear is uber-stylish, comfortable and my pick for sports attire.

This black polo dress from Adidas by Stella McCartney is my go-to outfit. Simple and easy, this dress can be worn on any golf course. Long enough for strict courses but stylish enough for any occasion. The Vauhti Golf Shoe is classic and clean. With a removable kiltie, this shoe feels like a sneaker but performs like a golf-shoe. Of course one must accessorize any outfit. Paired with a matching sun visor and retro golf glove, I am ready to hit the greens. FORE!

 

Have a wonderful weekend!
