Let’s face it, waking up isn’t the easiest when it’s chilly outside. Showering, glamming up and choosing what outfit to wear can feel like a tedious chore when all you want to do is stay in bed and snuggle. I hear you. For this reason, I like to keep my outfits comfy, casual, and hassle-free for fall and winter.
With all the running around I do in NYC, a cozy sweater, snug jeans, comfortable shoes, and a practical bag will do just fine. A simple, yet stylish outfit makes it easier when you have to carry yourself from work to meetings, to workouts, health appointments, and events. Yes, that’s pretty much my life nowadays (can’t complain!)
But how do you marry fashion and simplicity in colder temperatures? For starters, the sweater, jeans, shoes + bag formula I mentioned above is my ultimate life saver. Also, implementing color-pattern mixing helps me keep my looks fresh and fun!
There are four brands I’ve been closely following, mainly because I’ve found myself wearing their pieces almost on a daily basis this fall. If you’re looking to keep upgrading your wardrobe for chilly temps, I highly suggest you check them out!
Brands to Watch for Fall-Winter 2018
LOVESTITCH, Pomme D’Or, Hidden Jeans, and VERLOOP know what’s good this season. I’m featuring them all in today’s post and will give you a quick rundown of my staple fall-winter outfit (I kid you not, I’ve worn this same outfit over seven times already.)
Striped Sweater from LOVESTITCH
LOVESTITCH is a versatile women's clothing line with a bohemian feel and Cali vibes all around. They pride themselves on being the go-to clothing line for women seeking effortless, chic, and fashionable comfort—perfect for the yogi or fitness gal on the go. This striped sweater completely embodies what LOVESTITCH is about. Ease, quality, and an enlightened sense of style. Here, I’m paring it up with jeans, but I can’t wait for the spring to style it with some cute denim shorts! Also, you must check out what they currently have in their sweaters and pullovers section.
Giorgia Slipper from Pomme D’Or
I discovered Pomme D’Or at this year’s FFANY's Shoe Show. As you can imagine, I immediately fell in love with their Giorgia slippers. Time passed, and I kept in touch with the brand, who kindly remembered the shoe which caught my attention and sent it my way. I can’t stress enough how many compliments I’ve received on these adorable slippers and it isn’t for nothing. Pomme D’Or distinguishes itself for its artisan handcrafted shoes made in Italy since 1975, and I’m incredibly grateful for the relationship I’ve built with them. From boots and booties to the loveliest slippers, their varied selection will keep your feet stylishly warm during the holidays and beyond!
Frayed Jeans from Hidden Jeans
Hidden Jeans is a contemporary denim brand based out of Los Angeles. Their motto, "Live Today, Inspire Tomorrow,” truly resonates with the way I lead my life. Hence, when they reached out to tell me more about their denim pieces, I was already sold. Their goal? To match the integrity of those that inspire change, encourage the freedom of expression, and together celebrate life. My jeans? The Clean Whiskered Dark Wash Skinny w/ Extreme Frayed Hem. Did I mention they are 99% cotton and comfy as can be?
Knit Bag from VERLOOP
Based in NYC, VERLOOP works with a dedicated team of knitters to create unique accessories which infuse traditional knits with unexpected details, materials, and industrial techniques. Through a design process that emphasizes experimentation and innovation, VERLOOP aims to redefine knits for creative-minded consumers looking for functional styles to complement their modern lives. I have two more VERLOOP bags, and I keep rotating them non-stop because they just go with everything!
Alright friends, that’s a wrap for today. I hope you enjoyed this recap, check these fantastic brands out, hit me up with any questions, and keep scrolling below for a few more outfit ideas to keep you stylishly snuggly during fall-winter 2018.
