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 have always had a fondness for the storied and elegant Plaza Hotel in New York City. Back in the day I interviewed a delightful fashion editor in the Plaza’s famous Palm Court. I found the whole experience fascinating so when I came across an article about the history of the Plaza I started reading at once.
For 58 years, 89% of the astronauts have been men. And for 192 years, there were no women justices on the Supreme Court until Sandra Day O’Connor in 1981. In light of where we are today – these numbers are shocking.
In the five years that I’ve been writing these fashion blogs I’ve come to the conclusion that the creative heads of these worldwide companies have daunting, or almost impossible, daily jobs. The headline you see above came from Alessandro Michele who, in January 2015, became the creative director of Gucci, the company that was founded in Florence, Italy in 1921 and currently has 500 stores worldwide.
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.
