Craving Cardigans

This is about the time of year when I dump my coat and jacket and start wearing the cardigan.  A cardigan is a versatile addition to your fashion wardrobe.  A cardigan can be worn with jeans, pants, skirts, dresses or almost any garment.  Designer Cardigans will be a great addition to your wardrobe for both the cardigan’s versatility and those added designer details that make your clothes stand apart from your friend’s clothes.  Below are some of  my favorite cardigans for spring.

Laurie B. Short Sleeve Sweaters

Whoever thought sweaters were out for spring was certainly wrong!!!  Short sleeved sweaters are a perfect must have for this time of year.  Especially on those days that seem to be warm, but could easily turn cooler.  This time of year I find is perfect for short sleeved knitwear.

Laurie ‘B.’s Puffsleeve Cardigan Sweater is one of my must have cardigans.  I love how this cardigan sweater snaps closed for one kind of look, but can also be worn unsnapped as a cardigan.  The puff sleeves and pocket detail sets this cardigan sweater apart from any of your friends clothing.  Available in Grey or Black this sweater is perfect for layering this spring.

What to wear on Valentine’s day

Dresses, and skirts, and shoes, oh my! Deciding what to wear for a special occasion, lets just say Valentine’s Day, can be tricky. But look no further ladies, I’ve got the advice and looks for a sure fire hit for V-Day 2010.  No matter if you are doing a fancy dinner out or a cozy night in, we all want to look our best for cupid, that special someone, or just your self! The first look is the ever popular dress. Dresses can be very flattering and a bit more dressed up then normal day to day wear. I suggest going with a pattern, maybe something you wouldn’t normally wear.  This gorgeous dress by Velvet by Graham and Spencer fits the bill and will surely turn a head or two when worn.  It is also available in Red/White which would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!

The second look is more casual, a simple cardigan and jeans. Cardigans are always a classic look and I just adore the cute heart detail on this one.  It could easily be dressed up with skinny jeans and some killer heels or kept casual as shown.

Whatever your plans are, remember this: No outfit looks sexy if you are uncomfortable with yourself in it! Choose something that you feel confident in and you will look your best, because you feel your best.  So what are your V-Day plans, going out or staying in?? Me, I think a cozy night in will be perfect for this year…I’ll be the one in the cute cardigan and jeans!

Must Have Fall Cardigan Sweaters and Wraps

Laurie B. Moonlight Cap Sweater

Laurie B. Moonlight Cap Wrap Sweater

Cardigans and wraps are all the rage this fall and why shouldn’t they be?  They are the perfect complement over long sleeve tops in the fall and winter and we love to wear them over tanks from spring until fall.  No one designs feminine wraps and cardigans better than Laurie B.  At Vintage Fringe, we love Laurie B. sweaters because they are so flattering and versatile.  Dressed for day or glammed up for night you can always layer in style with her fabulous designs.  Most people think sweaters are only for winter because they are so bulky and unflattering, but Laurie B. is the queen of turning knits into fashionable feminine looks that you can wear early fall through to winter.

One of my favorite sweaters by Laurie B. is the Moonlight Cap Sweater.  This Wrap has a one of a kind cut that makes it different than any wrap you have seen before.  I also love how this sweater is short sleeved, I still pair it with a white long sleeved shirt, but I really enjoy the warmth of a sweater wrap without the weight that sleeves on a sweater can add.

Laurie B. Rumba Cardigan

Another great choice from Laurie B. is the Rumba Puff Sleeve Sweater.  This sweater is lightweight and really doesn’t look like a sweater at all.  It’s beautiful gathered detailed V-neck on the front and long length make it a classic one of a kind sweater.  This knit is really so lightweight you could start wearing it now.  These sweaters and other designer sweaters are available at Vintage Fringe.  Hurry and get yours today while supplies last!

Winter Sweater Trends

Laurie B. Sweaters

Laurie B. Sweaters

It’s sweater season and this winter we wanted to let you know what we’ve seen for upcoming sweater trends.  We love the sweaters we carry from Laurie B.  One reason why we love them so much is because they are not your typical stuffy sweater.  These sweaters are all super stylish and what makes them Vintage Fringe worthy is their attention to cute details like pockets and large buttons.

One trend that we’ve seen are the short sleeve cardigan sweaters.  With a bit of a twist on the retro cardigan from years gone by, the new short sleeve versions are perfect for layering over turtlenecks or long sleeve tops.  These cardigans are a great alternative to a vest and would be amazing with leggings or boots.  We love the Laurie B. details including the pockets, the off-center snaps that give it that finished look.  At Vintage Fringe we currently have two versions the Emmy (shown) and the Sunset cardigan.  The Emmy features an acrylic/wool/mohair blend and the Sunset is made from a cotton/elite blend.  Both are fabulous sweaters and this style of sweater the short sleeve cardigan is a big trend this upcoming winter season.   We currently  have a few left of the Sunset version available in Navy Blue and Black and the Emmy available in Green (shown), Sky Blue, and Brown.
