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!

Have you noticed how much dining in or out has changed in recent years? First of all: everything has to be recorded on one’s phone. Then we have to listen to a litany of: a) I’m on a diet, b) no carbohydrates, c) I’m a vegetarian, d) no salt ever, e) white sugar is a killer, f) no peanuts ever.
Ad infinitum. Ad absurdum.
Now, let’s take a close look at what is one of the most important features of the Marmont. The short answer is: PRIVACY. The hotel never publicly discusses its famous guests or reveals the names of those currently staying there. In other words: zippered lips are stage center.
When the first Monday in May rolls around, all eyes in the fashion world look to The Met. That is when New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts its fundraising gala for its Costume Institute. The gala's theme coincides with that year's fashion exhibit, which runs for a limited time. This year, the theme is "Notes on 'Camp'". Here's a brief description of that theme, courtesy of The Met.
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. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
