Knack for Knits

on January 15, 2020

We all await that time of year where we can pull out our cozy knits for our everyday activities whether it be work, a night out, or just curling up by the fire and binge watching our favorite new series  and we are finally right at peak comfy weather. Knits are effortless and comfortable but have also shown up in so many more forms than just the usual oversized sweater this season. From cardigans to sweater dresses, we’re here to highlight all the stylish ways you can wear knits this winter!

Cropped:

Our favorite sweaters have been cropped this season either in length or by sleeves. We adore this chic variation on the classic sweater from Papermoon, which can be worn with or without a shirt underneath to casual or formal occasions. Wearing this style can be simple—just throw on a nice pair of high waisted black jeans or printed skirt, a pair of pumps, and you’re ready for anything!

Sweater Dresses: 

Often thought of as more on the casual side, knits can also be easily worn to formal events as we’ve seen on many runways. Sweater dresses are comfortable and versatile enough that they can be worn from day to night without batting a lash, like this one from Chris & Carol! We’re all for the sweater dress trend, which can be styled with an oversized belt and/or knee-high boots.

Cardigans:

Another favorite trend this season is knit cardigans. Traditionally worn over a shirt or blouse, a great new way of styling these classic pieces is by buttoning them up and wearing them alone. Whether you wear them on or off-the-shoulder, they look put together and give your wardrobe a fresh spin!

This sweater season, we’ve seen knits come in all different shapes, colors, and fabrics. From co-rd knits in bright neon to puff sleeves to button downs to half zips, knits can be worn to any event whether it is easy and laid back or elegant and chic. Warm knits remain one of the most comfortable items to wear and only take an extra few seconds to make perfect for any occasion!

Last-Minute Thanksgiving Style Guide

on November 27, 2019

 

      Is it your first time meeting your partners’ parents? Are you going to a Friendsgiving? Spending time with the in-laws? No matter where you’re celebrating Thanksgiving Day or what you’re bringing to the table, we all face the same conundrum: what to wear? 

      I’m not sure how it may be in your family or friend group, but for many women it’s a subtle internal standard of: what is everyone else going to be wearing? Will I be too overdressed if I wear this? Or underdressed if I wear that? Like many, we can be torn on whether we would rather be comfy and throw on some leggings and a plush sweater or put on one of our best dresses that highlights ALL of our curves in the best way since the holidays do give us a little extra time to shine (both figuratively and literally thanks to the copious opportunities to dawn metallics, lurex, sequins, etc.).    

      Many of us also have so much on our hands during this time of year in general that it can feel like an extra challenge to look as great as we would like to with family, friends  kids, and even pets running around: who has the time to even think too much now? Luckily, we are here to help with some easy ways of looking chic on Thanksgiving Day! For all of your potential situations this holiday, here are 4 quick last minute tips to help you get ready before all the wonderful, cranberry-scented madness begins:

 

  • A jewel tone or printed oversized sweater with leggings and booties can make a quick, comfortable look feel 3 times more chic with 3 times less work.

 

  • The wrap dress is the master of fast and simple throw-on pieces to create an outfit  that can easily be dressed up or down with minimal effort and maximum comfort.

  • A duster cardigan, dark skinny jeans, and a faux or true front-tucked top can easily compliment every body type and create a put-together yet still casual ensemble.

 

  • For a dressier affair, try layering a fun skirt ( like the one you have in your closet that you love but can never figure how to wear) over leggings, pair that with a neutral or patterned fitted turtleneck, and top it off with bold/bright heels heels for a pop of color!

Libra Season Style Guide

on October 23, 2019

        With fall in full swing, so is the Libran season (which is essentially all of pumpkin-spice season to most true-hearted Libras 😉). If you’re anything like myself, you sometimes loosely utilize astrology as a form of guidance. When the sun enters Libra from September 23rd to October 23rd, not only do our ways of thinking change, but so do our styles as its the official beginning of the sweater weather. We replace our mini-skirts, T-shirts, and our ‘Hot Girl Summer’ mindsets with coats, boots, and rational but still chic thinking. We tend to reflect more on practical(ish) decisions this season than we do when it’s summer, the living is easy, and the sun is in Gemini, Leo, Cancer or Virgo. 

       When autumn approaches, we often hear the people around us say, ‘now I can really dress’, implying they can now truly showcase their best personal styles, which is thought to be partly attributed to our air sign encouraging charisma, creativity, beauty, and new ideas within them. This is the season to welcome changes to our wardrobes and take a little risk in trying something new. Luckily, Fashom makes this aspect easy for you with personalized boxes that are shipped right to your front door!

        Late-September to late-October is the peak time to release our inner Cher from Clueless, played by fellow Libran, Alicia Silverstone. Cher embodied; charisma, risk, creativity, and beauty through her clothing (plus those iconic one-liners). This can encourage us to do the same with our very own closets. Here is some stylish and trendy Libra season outfit inpso based off the Libran character that you can easily rock:         

      

  • Professional Perfection: A black blazer, white lace button-down, a gray plaid pencil skirt or mustard trousers, and a pair of black heels with metal details or bold flats.

 

  • Casual Chic: Pairing a beret/flat brim fedora, with a detailed jacket (stripes, polkadots, or a different texture like corduroy), with black jeans, and a pair of ankle booties.

 

  • Mad for Plaid: Pairing together a plaid blazer/jacket with a pair of pants in the same print and color with a white blouse, and a pair of white vegan-leather sneakers is a bold but rewarding styling option this season.

 

  • Easy with Plaid-ttitude : If you feel plaid on plaid is too out there, wearing a plaid shirt half tucked (tucking in one side of the shirt into your pants while leaving the rest out of the shirt outside of them) with solid colored pants or jeans is also a great alternative that Cher would likely rock herself.

 

  • Feeling Vest-ive: If you just have a casual meeting or parent teacher conference to attend but still want to look chic, you could wear a quilted neutral colored vest, a bold button-down, matching jeans, and some patterned ankle booties. 

 

  • Mesh Madness: If you are going out for a night on the town, this could be the outfit for you. Marry together a black mesh-detail top (with or without a tube top/cami underneath), black wide-leg pants or jeans, and a pair of heels or ankle booties, and you’re ready for a night out with your girlfriends.
