Look #1: Casual Yet Elevated

Ease into the week with a sweater outfit that’s casual but elevated. Choose a loose-fitting jean like the Baggy Mom jean, then add a neutral heel and fun bag for a pop of color that pulls the outfit together.

Look #2: Girl on the Go

Hit up your next downtown meeting in Relaxed Mom joggers paired with a soft sweater and Chelsea boots to create a streamlined utilitarian look. Add a bucket hat, sunglasses, and a sling bag to go hands-free when you’re on the move.

Look #3: Femme to the Max

For those days when you’re feeling a little more feminine (or just don’t want to put on pants) try a maxi skirt with your cozy cable knit sweater. Accessories are crucial here, so add a little fun to your look with jewelry, a cross-body bag, and combat boots.

Stylist tip: choose a high-waisted maxi skirt that seems like it’s cut on the bias so it drapes on our body in a really flattering way.

Look #4: Dress It Up

Dress up your sweater by wearing it with a button-up corduroy mini skirt. Add a little edge to the outfit with knee-high boots, a structured bag, and pair of sunglasses.

Look #5: Made for Meetings
