Spotlight on Splendid Brand Sweaters

Fall fashion is so much fun, I have been loving the opportunity to wear sweaters, boots, and scarfs. One of my favorite brands for sweaters is Splendid. They are perfectly soft, comfortable, easy to layer and just all around pretty and well designed pieces. If you aren’t familiar with Splendid{or even if you are!}, check out three of my top choices for your fall wardrobe:

The 1×1 8 Button Cardigan is just perfect for cool fall days, I love that it comes black, navy or pink and is equally cute button up or open. With its longer length this is the perfect piece to throw on over leggings and boots.

 I love the ease of the Rayon Slub Jersey Cardigan. The rolled sleeves and comfortable cut make this a go to item for all types of events and weather. Clearly it is super cute belted, but it is also great just left open showing off a bit of your favorite tank or camisole.

Ok lastly, I am such a fan of this 1×1 Pocket Cardigan, I totally love sweater vests because they are the easiest thing to throw over a not so cute top and look polished. The longer length on this makes it ideal for over leggings or skinny jeans or even over a pencil skirt for the office. To see all these lovelies and more, head over to Vintage Fringe and get yourself some spectacular Splendid sweater!

Getting a leg up on Fall Fashion

Fall and winter fashion are all about layers for me, and what is better staple piece and layering item them leggings?? Leggings are so great because they can be worn in a million different ways to make a million different looks. I love leggings tucked into boots, or worn with booties and a tunic length top. Velvet by Graham and Spencer, who are known for their ultra soft and comfortable fabrics have a fabulous pair of knit leggings, the Swoosie. {Wouldn’t love to know where that name came from??} They are the perfect pair to start your looks with, available in dark grey or black.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but is supposed to hit the 90’s this weekend, so I am still very much into summer clothes. Especially summer clothes that will transition into fall and winter outfits. Enter the Lace Trim Stripe Tank by Collective Concepts, it is obviously perfect for summer just by itself. But imagine it with a coordinating  color long sleeve shirt underneath it for fall, and a cropped leather jacket on top for winter, so chic!

Another great piece for layering, is an open cardigan. I love to wear an open cardigan with leggings, because then I can wear a shorter shirt and the open cardigan is long enough to cover my behind. The Cotton Bamboo Cardigan by Splendid is great because is has short sleeves, making it perfect for layering and lasting though all the seasons.

So enjoy the weather where ever you are and whatever it is and remember layering pieces are perfect now and perfect later. It all starts with the perfect pair of leggings!

Sweaters for summer

Sweaters for summer? I know you must be thinking that I am nuts, but hear me out. Light weight, breezy sweaters are perfect for summer outings and layering for summer nights. I am also really digging sweater vests for summer, such an easy way to look chic. This 1×1 Pocket Cardigan by Splendid is cute, this picture shows how it could work well for a cooler summer night. It would also be great for day with a short sleeve shirt, bermuda shorts, chunky necklace, and metallic strappy sandals. Love this look!

Another great way to make sweater work for summer is to do something really sheer, then put on a bright tank top underneath it. I like the Textured Rib LS Hoodie by Splendid for this look. It would be great over a swimsuit, or even with something warmer underneath it for cooler weater.

Another great light weight summer sweater option is the Loose Knit 3/4 Sleeve Tie Hoodie by Splendid. I love the oatmeal color and the sleeve length is perfect for warmer weather. The banded bottom with tie gives this sweater a more casual laid back look which pairs perfectly for summer.

Fashionable Essentials for Fall: The Sweater

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.

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.
