5 Essential Sweaters for Fall 2018

Nothing makes me more excited for fall than pulling out my sweaters and styling them into comfy, cute outfits. While you might recycle some oldies from year to year, bringing in some fresh sweaters will liven up your closet and get you in the mood for pumpkin spice and everything nice to come.

Here’s my list of the 5 sweaters that would be the perfect addition to any wardrobe this fall.

THE HIGH NECK

Whether a turtleneck or funnel neck, this sweater style will add a sophisticated pop to any closet. Throw on a blazer over top for the office or add jean shorts and heels for a fun date night look.

THE DEEP V

If high neck feels daring to you, introduce the deep V-neck to your closet first. V-neck is one of the most flattering necklines, because it can make your neck look elongated while exposing one of the slimmest parts of your upper body. In short, you’ll feel awesome wearing it. Pair it with a triple-strand gold necklace and ripped jeans for the weekend or a simple pencil pant and powerful pump for the office.

Worried about showing too much skin at work? Add a neutral tank underneath or add a hook-and-eye clasp an inch from the bottom of the V for more coverage at the office.

THE LONG CARDIGAN

Love love love this piece, because it’s so much fun to style into outfits for day and evening. Play with the proportion by adding a mini dress underneath and knee-high boots for night or go sporty with it during the day by adding straight-leg jeans, stacked-heel booties and a vintage tee.

THE COZY PULLOVER

The classic pullover is the most nostalgic sweater for me, because it feels like the perfect piece to wear when you’re sitting by the fire or cooking up a Thanksgiving feast. To keep it relaxed, pair it with distressed skinny jeans and velvet fashion sneakers. To make it eclectic, add a leather mini skirt and cowboy boots.

THE COLLEGIATE CLASSIC

This retro style is great for Austin, because it’s easy to pop on and off with any change in temperature. Make is elegant for the office by adding a cream-color button-down and a navy pencil skirt. Give it a downtown vibe by adding a body suit, flare jeans and pointed-toe animal print pumps.

How to Pack for Thanksgiving Weekend

It's that time of year again... the holidays are officially upon us! Are you (and your stomach!) ready for Thanksgiving? 

Packing for the long holiday weekend can be daunting, but we've got you covered. All of the elements on our list will fit perfectly in your carry-on bag, so you can worry about what's important on Thanksgiving like what you're eating, and not what you're wearing. :)

The Elements: 

Jeans

Jeans are ideal for all climates and lend themselves well to the fun, laid-back holiday that Thanksgiving is. Make sure yours have at least a little bit of stretch to accommodate your Turkey Day meal. :)

Lightweight Sweater

Choose a sweater in an unexpected neutral (blush and slate gray are fantastic!) that will work double-time for your suitcase, serving as the base for your outfits with jeans. 

Vests

Vests are perfect for adding another layer of warmth into the mix on those colder days. Choose a heavier vest for your travel day to layer over your lightweight sweater: it's a great way to stay just warm enough in the airport and en route to your destination without adding the bulk of a heavy coat.

Relaxed Dress

A fun, festive dress is a great way to express your own personal style on Thanksgiving. You'll be just dressed up enough, yet casual and comfortable enough to really kick back and enjoy the holiday with your loved ones.

Overcoat

An overcoat in a bright color or unexpected pattern lets you show off your personal style, even when the temperatures dip below freezing. Going the vintage route is a failsafe way to snag a real gem that expresses your style.

Bright Scarf and Gloves

Accessories are often overlooked, but are *the* best way to both punch up an otherwise neutral look and serve as a practical (and packable!) way to create some variance in your look. Adding a bright pop of color in a scarf or earmuffs is the perfect finish to your holiday look.

Versatile Boots

One great pair of comfortable boots is all you'll need for the long weekend! They work seamlessly with all of the outfits you can put together with all of the pieces above: no need to pack multiple pairs of shoes that will take up valuable real estate in your suitcase!

Family, Feasting, and Fit: Picking the Perfect Pant for Thanksgiving

I consider myself one of the lucky ones. My mother is a chef and both of my grandmothers are exceptionally talented in the kitchen, so my Thanksgiving is predictably delicious. I, however, am not quite as talented in the kitchen. I've got the staples down for weeknights in my house (tacos, pasta, chicken...), but my contribution to Thanksgiving usually involves the pies (picking them up, not baking them). 

Whether you're the culinary genius in your house or the couch potato this Thanksgiving, it's important to be comfortable. The Thanksgiving outfit plan is surprisingly important because cooking, couching, and eating all require a bit of stretch to your outfit. Also, you may find yourself in some family photos that are sure to stick around for a long time (either on Instagram or in your grandma's house). 

So, I'm dedicating this week to making you look and feel fabulous for your big feast, and there's one element that's a must: LEGGINGS.

Picking the right pair of leggings, and the appropriate outfit to wear with them, depends on everything from your body type to your color palette. It's not always easy. I've laid out a few looks for a broad range of body types. But to find out how to create the best look for you, schedule an image assessment with me.   

Now, I would love to hear from you! Leave a comment below to tell me how you managed to find the perfect Thanksgiving pant!
