What Inspired Jen’s Look:
When it feels like 10°F outside, you better believe I’ll be bundled up from head to toe.  To me, comfort is key, but looking put-together comes in a close second.  I love the coziness of a thick, knit sweater with a simple pair of leggings.  Chunky-heeled booties keep the outfit looking refined while a pom beanie adds a little bit of holiday cheer.

Meet Bethany:
Bethany is the writer of the style blog Bethany Kate. The blog features her own personal style as well as the style of her little girl Grace (who’s quickly becoming a bit of a fashionista herself!). She describes her style as classic and feminine and is always on the hunt for fun new pieces. She loves looking for outfit inspiration and hopes to inspire others, too!

What inspired Bethany’s Look:
I’m a huge fan of plaid and if you raid my wardrobe you will find many a plaid scarf, but a limited selection of other plaid clothing items. This is because I generally like a hint of the pattern in an outfit but find it a little bold to wear as a whole garment. When I saw this sweater at Aerie I knew it was the perfect way to transition plaid into other aspects of my closet. The subtle nature of the pattern means that it’s not overbearing and made it easy to style. I kept the rest of my outfit simple with navy denim skinny jeans (which highlight the navy stripe in the sweater) and a neutral bag and booties. The neutral accessories ensure that the sweater is the focal point of the outfit. I love this sweater for fall going into winter. It’s definitely the prettiest, coziest piece I’ve bought to date this season!

What inspired Jessica’s Look:
Going home to PA for the holidays means more casual looks than I usually wear in NYC – but I still like to throw in a few signature touches. I started with this over-sized sweater – it’s a great basic and the graphic ‘Oui’ adds a bit of French fun.  I can never resist a little print mixing so I grabbed my favorite plaid blanket scarf and leopard booties, then topped it off with a pop of color from this bright tote.  Distressed denim and ivory mittens kept me warm and cozy for an afternoon outdoors.. dreaming of my next trip to Paris!

Styled by Lauren: Pastels & Neutrals

Styled by Lauren: Pastels & Neutrals

Our Manager of Styling, Lauren, was inspired by the sunshine of San Francisco when she was building this look for Adria during our Spring 2014 photo shoot. One of the trends for spring we’re most excited for is soft dressing and our Soft Pant is the easiest way to start the look. Adria is primed to be the most stylish girl at any block party in her pastel and neutral palette.

To keep Adria’s look really easy and stylish, Lauren paired the Soft Pant with our Cropped Raglan Sweater. This sweater comes in five different colors ranging from pretty pink and yellow pastels to basic black. We suggest grabbing one in every color to match back to all of our printed pants.

You can wear just about any shoe with this look! Your favorite booties or heels can dress it up, or go for comfort with our Slip-On Sneaker. Add a Knit Beanie for another touch of effortlessly cool style. Lauren went with black accessories to accentuate the detailed pastel-colored print of the pants.
