Thursday Outfit: Bring on the Cable Knits

Thursday Outfit: Bring on the Cable Knits

Nothing says the winter season like cable knits.  The chunky, cozy sweaters can be worn with jeans, leggings, pencil skirt, trousers, whatever you have on offer.  But this outfit is the perfect casual ensemble for relaxed workdays or dressy weekends.

I tried to do a Google image search, but I could not find the origin for this inspiration photo.  But I adore this look.  I love the ease of it.  That’s one thing that I am always trying (and usually failing) to bring into my style, that feeling of effortlessness.  And this outfit feels like she tossed it on, even though I’m sure she labored over the details.

Coat // This ivory coat from Ann Taylor has appeared on the blog before.  It’s a lovely, feminine coat.  For something more casual, I love this swingy coat from J.Crew.  This pale oatmeal coat from & Other Stories gives you a similar look in a slightly darker color in case white scares you.

Plus-size? Try this Marks and Spencer coat.  Petite?  This light tan Calvin Klein coat is worth a look.

Sweater // The inspiration sweater has a lovely chevron knit, a difficult to find pattern.  So I chose this classic cable knit from Banana Republic instead.  Also available in petite.

Banana Republic also has this incredible knit sweater with a unique texture.  I also like this v-neck tunic from Treasure & Bond.  Plus-size?  Try this Karen Scott sweater.

Jeans // The slightly distressed boyfriend jeans are the jeans for how we live now.  They’re a slightly looser fit, a relaxed cut that just exudes casual cool.  I chose these Citizens of Humanity jeans, but these affordable Kut from the Kloth jeans are also a good choice.

Belt // This Frame belt is one you see on a lot of influencers, so to pick it up on sale is a nice thing.  I love the simple, sophisticated styling of it.  Want something more casual?  Try this belt from Madewell.

Bag // I wanted a really big satchel for this look, and this Marcy satchel from Ralph Lauren is a good pick.  I also like this vegan-leather bag from Matt & Nat.

Scarf // Love the idea of using a folded scarf for a pop of color.  And whenever we start traveling again, it’s nice for the plane.  This knit-fringe scarf from Urban Outfitters is nice, I also like this smoother knit scarf from & Other Stories.

Shoes // These Sava suede flats are nice option for more casual wear.  For work, try these buckle-accented Sam Edelman flats.

Earrings // I couldn’t resist these sweet little drop earrings from Wolf & Badger.  The sapphire accents are so dainty and precious.  I just adore these hoops.
