Meet Kassala:
“Hi, I’m Kassala. I’m a 23-year-old from Montana – a small town in the middle of nowhere. I recently made the big move to New York city to turn my passions into a career. I love being able to share my life with everyone over social media through fashion, photography, and traveling.”

What Inspired Kassala’s Look:
“It’s my favorite time of year, the weather is changing. I love fall and winter fashion. I was inspired by the weather to dress up cozy pieces. The flannel is perfect for staying warm and being stylish. I have a very minimal style all together, so I styled the plaid button down with black skinny jeans, black ankle boots. I added a leather jacket to give the look a little more edge.”

Break out your chunky knits, turtlenecks and oversized cardis, because it’s officially sweater weather. Early Fall is an opportune time to play with different ways to style sweaters, thanks to up-and-down temps. Blogger Sage Coralli from So Sage Blog took one of our softest-ever sweaters from the latest collection and made trend-right, open-stitch top the statement piece of her monochrome look. Check out Sage’s outfit below featuring the the AEO Ahhhmazingly Soft Mock Neck Sweater & get some Fall-ready styling tips to for the Mock Neck Sweater.

Meet Sage:
So Sage Blog is a culmination of Sage’s vision, dreams, aspirations, fears, insecurities, risks and above all, her passions.  She believes that a lack of passion is fatal. Similar to my style, she make life choices based on pure emotion. Am she impulsive?  Absolutely.  Spontaneous? 100%. Unpredictable, free spirited, border-line crazy? This is part of who she is, who she’ll always be. And quite frankly, if you ask anyone that knows her… that’s ‘So Sage.’

Sage does’t use definitive words for describing her style because the way she dresses is constantly evolving and typically a reflection of how she feels at that moment in time. Her go-to look? A luxury staple paired with accessible finds, but above all else..comfort. Sage enjoys challenging and questioning the rules of fashion because, she’s just not a rule following type of girl. Sage hopes to in some way inspire you to live on the edge, try to new trends, break the rules, live a little, and feel that you too can express yourself through the clothes you wear.”

What Inspired Sage’s Look:
“If there’s something I’ve learned to fully embraced in my closet, it’s definitely sweaters. For the longest time I didn’t like wearing sweaters because I thought they were all itchy and too bulky/thick. I would usually opt for a coat & multiple layers to keep warm in the past, but after building up a collection over the last few years, I have a nice little sweater section in my closet. I have a decent mix of both high and low end sweaters, but regardless of the cost there’s something so chic & classic about a sweater. I particularly love the mock neck sweater because I think it adds such a chic flare to any look and the hair tuck is an added bonus.

I recently got this soft mock neck sweater, and I’m obsessed. I love that this one is open knit so that you have breathing room…and if your temperatures are anything like they are still here in Texas, you would appreciate too. This color gray is so versatile and can be worn with practically anything. Typically I would pair a mock neck sweater with some skinny jeans & heels/booties or boyfriend jeans & sneakers like I did in this past post. Since Texas can’t decide if it’s Summer or Fall yet, I threw it over my t-shirt dress before dinner for the cooler evening and went for an all-gray-everything look.”
