What to Wear on St. Patrick’s Day

This Wednesday Irish or not so Irish it’s probably in your best interest to wear green.  I am still trying to decide just how festive I want to look for a St. Patty’s day party this weekend.  Just in case anyone else is still trying to pick your outfit out.  Below are some of my favorites to choose from.

Laurie B. Emmy Cardigan Sweater in Kelly Green

Laurie B. Emmy Cardigan Sweater in Kelly Green

This Cardigan Sweater is designed by Laurie B. and is the sweater I receive the most compliments on.  I love how it snaps at the neck and then slits open for a cardigan feel.   The pocket detail and long length makes this sweater so comfortable and easy to wear.   I always pair this sweater with the Zooey long sleeve crew neck in white. Considering this sweater is now in the outlet- it’s a steal of a deal. Maybe the luck  of the Irish.

The other shirt I am considering for St. Patrick’s day is this Victoria Front Tie Top designed by Ella Moss.

There are so many details I love about this top.  First I love the ruffles at the neck line and the cuffs.  This flirty top is made of Ella Moss’s modal fabric which is super durable and the ultimate in comfort.

Some of you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day may want to dress it up.  For a dressy night on the town I would suggest the Aggie V Neck Ruffle Dress.

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.

Gable Stripe Cardigan by Laurie B.

Laurie B.’s designer knitwear is perhaps one of the most distinctive of all of the designers available at Vintage Fringe.  The American knitwear line: Laurie B. is the creation of Laurie Brazeau.  Laurie was born in Mexico, raised in the United States and traveled the world searching for work and inspiration.  After working for years in Paris as a private label designer she returned home and launched her own knit line Laurie B. working from her own home in Oakland, California.  While Laurie Brazeau has no formal design school training she has managed to build her brand and her style into a recognizable icon for knitwear internationally.  Laurie B. credits her international travels, vintage shopping skills, and her color outside the lines mentality as her inspiration behind her one of a kind designer styles.  I am continually amazed at how Laurie B. continues to design knitwear far out of the traditional sweater box you usually see knitwear in.  Above are some of my favorite Laurie B. designer but there are much more at Vintage Fringe, and don’t forget you can always shop by designer at VintageFringe.com.

Fashionable Essentials for Fall: The Sweater

Laurie B. Rumba Cardigan

Laurie B. Rumba Cardigan

The sweater is another fashionable essential this fall.  Since fall can be cool one day and freezing the next I would recommend a lightweight sweater and a thicker layering sweater. For the lightweight sweater this season I have fallen in love with the Laurie B. Rumba Puff Sleeve Sweater. This sweater can be worn so many different ways. Pictured here unbuttoned and over a tank top you can wear it in warmer weather too.  In cooler weather, we love to wear it over a long sleeved shirt. The snap in the front makes it possible to wear it open or closed.  My favorite detail are the pockets in front.  I love also that it comes in classic black and a sweatshirt grey.

Splendid Cotton Stripe Cardigan

Another fashionable sweater that I love to wear on those chilly fall days is Cotton Stripe Long Sleeve Cardigan from Splendid. This sweater has the adorable thick stripes that look great with denim pants.  This sweater is more flattering than most chunky sweater wraps because the collar gets wider closer to the face. We love the tie around the waist too giving it a flattering fit.

Best of all both of these sweaters are currently on sale. What do you think?  What are your favorite sweaters?  Post a comment and let us know.

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.

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!

Laurie B. Moonlight Cap Wrap Sweater

In our quest for distinctive sweaters, this Laurie B. sweater takes the cake!  We love the distinctive look of this Moonlight Cap Wrap Sweater from Laurie B.  We love that Laurie B.’s designs are not just the same old basic turtleneck sweater or the same old cardigan.  Instead they take those basic designs and then add feminine details like a ruffle sleeve or a twist on the cardigan that is open at the bottom rather than the top like the Emmy Cardigan sweater.

The Moonlight Cap Wrap Sweater is another example featuring a belted waist that ties an over sized wrap sweater.  We love to wear it as shown in the shot on our model below creating a wide V when the sweater falls naturally.  Others prefer to wear it with more of a flare at the waist as demonstrated on the mannequin shot shown here as well.  With short sleeves this sweater is perfect for layering this winter and with a skirt and boots is the perfect winter sweater this season.
