A few weeks ago I started a conversation about Fall 2013 trends with my blog about navy, the go-to neutral for this season. However, one trend does not a fashion season make. So let’s return to the conversation. And this time, let’s chat about statement sweaters.
The Fall 2013 runways saw many a model ensconced in cozy knits, most in the form of outfit-making, cozy toppers that demanded attention.
In order to step in line with this trend, find three chunky knits with luscious textures, interesting shapes, unexpected details and both classic and modern patterns and colors. Here are some of my favorite examples:
Vince does what they do best by combining a classic cable-knit with both eye-catching texture and color-blocking to create a marled marvel that is both subtle and statement-making all at once.
Anthropologie modernizes a classic yolk sweater with neon brights and a fuzzy finish.
J Crew makes summer’s best ethnic prints cold weather-worthy with this cashmere beauty.
Once you have found your statement sweater (or sweaters) of choice, simply pair with your favorite bottom. Whether it’s skinny jeans, a wool trouser, a sleek pencil skirt or a flirty and full-bodied mini, you’ll be ready to head out the door in an on-trend ensemble in no time.
And, of course, don’t forget your Adea layers to wear beneath your knit du jour. They add another layer of warmth, keep itchy fibers off of your chest, stomach, neck and arms and help to regulate your body temperature as you move throughout your day.
Here’s to a cozy Fall/Winter 2013!

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
