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’ve never been able to pull it off BUT I’ve always wanted to go to Australia – everything I’ve heard about it fascinates me. That said I often watch those “survival” TV shows where a person takes a wrong turn in a desert, forest, mountain or the outback and is lost for days on end. Then an “outdoor survivalist” comes on and says, “If only they had done thus-and-so – they would have had food and water.”
Over the years, the airline industry has experienced many twists and turns – and one of the most remarkable has been the evolution of the stewardess or airline hostess. That said I was stopped in my tracks by an article in Travel & Leisure, April 2020 titled “Taking Wing.” It featured a photo of a flight attendant’s dress from 1965 and was skillfully written by Ann Hood who has delivered a detailed on-the-scene report.
In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone. This gave me the idea to write about fun and/or favorite spots in all five boroughs, namely: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers.
