Q: Perfect oversized sweaters.
A: A few favorites at the moment —
TOTEME (43% OFF!)
MIRTH (ALMOST SOLD OUT!)
Q: A trip to LA in February. Polished but casual outfit ideas.
A: I would check out what the chic Los Angelina Mallory Goldman is wearing — she nails that laid-back but style-conscious je ne sais quoi of the California set. But for some reason I imagine wearing my Agoldes with a trendy sneaker and a perfect white tee or button-down, big shades, a chic sweater, and a tangle of delicate gold necklaces and coin pendants. A boho dress like this or a black linen dress like this would be perfect dressed down with sandals like these or these, and a quilted denim jacket (look for less) or patterned jacket on top. I also feel like L.A. is a place to try new shapes, like these barrel-esque trousers and Weejun loafers. And, cherry on top: an understated “it” bag like this Khaite.
Q: Holiday silk scarf.
Q: Favorite scarves.
A: I have a few Hermes silk scarves that I adore and a vintage Pucci scarf similar to this in psychadelic colors my mom gave me that sparks joy. They are great investments that will last generations. I prefer to dress them down by pairing/pattern-mixing with striped Ayr tees or white tees.
For winter, I am obsessed with the oversized cashmere plaid ones from Talbots I shared here. They are a great price, come in wonderful and traditional tartans/plaids, and are a perfect oversized shape.
Q: Fleece-lined tights for women.
Q: Apres ski “welcome drinks” and black tie wedding attire in CO in Feb. Help! I want to be chic!
A: FUN! For welcome drinks, I immediately imagined wearing this adorable fair isle sweater over a wintry dress like this. Pair with flat black boots so you still look winter ready / dress down a bit. If you’re getting the vibe things are less dressy than that (e.g. people will really be coming right off the slopes), try this fair isle sweater (or this one) with your favorite jeans and winter boots like these or these. For something slightly dressier, this metallic ribbed dress beneath a faux fur vest. For the wedding — I am obsessed with this, this, this, this, and this.
Q: Matching sweater skirt set for my sister.
A: Cute! This cashmere polo sweater and skirt are total classics and a good price point. I also love this skirt and sweater duo from Saks’ house label. BASH also has a great option, as does Jonathan Simkhai (with associated sweaters).
Q: Ibiza themed party.
Q: A sherpa/fuzzy vest.
A: I’m obsessed with this one from Re/Done that could be dressed up or down, and this shearling trim one from A.L.C. sells out every year. For more casual wear: I love this puffer style from Tuckernuck, but this layerable style from Barbour is genius (less bulky than most others on the market). I also love this Madewell and this unique sweater-trim style from Varley. Finally, this longline style from J. Crew would make an outfit out of a white turtleneck and jeans.
