Sweater Season

I know I just posted about the upcoming spring, but New York not-so-politely reminded me that its still very much winter time.

On these cold wet days, we all just want to snuggle up in some cozy knits.

Though sweaters feel fantastically lazy, they don't have to feel boring.

Winter sales are going strong and now is the time to spruce up your sweater collection. Look for unique pieces which will elevate those grey winter days. Outrageous elements such as this oversized cowl make an ordinary sweater something marvelous.

I fell in love with this bright teal Joe Fresh knit in the early fall but $100 felt a little steep for a sweater. So I let it go - only to find it in the January sales for $28!! I guess we were just meant to be together. :)

Colored Pants on Men

Spring is coming!  Now is the time gentlemen to try a pair of brightly hued slacks.

I happen to love colored pants on guys. It shows a confidence and a sense of fun. You know the guy wearing salmon pink trousers (like these from J.Crew) is going to be absolutely charming.

So men, take a break from your  neutral work pants and blue jeans and try for a emerald green, mustard yellow, or cobalt blue pair.

Preppy retailers are your best bet such as J. Crew, Gap, Joe Fresh or Club Monaco.
