BREAK THE “RULES”

So, that whole thing about not being able to wear white after Labor Day is almost as outdated as tattoo choker necklaces are. It’s true, and if you don’t believe me,  then see for yourself. The real rule should be: don’t wear white linen, canvas or any other light-weight looking garments/fabrics once the PSLs are in full swing. I happen to love wearing bright white pieces in the fall. While I wasn’t wearing pants as much this summer season due to the scorching hot temps, I did invest in quite a few white denim pants and I fully intend on wearing them through October (not kidding). For instance, these wide leg white denim pants from Banana Republic look classic and sophisticated with this simple black J.Jill knit. I love the strong contrast of black and white; it’s clean and timeless. Creamy pink turtlenecks and flowy chiffon blouses styled with these wide-leg beauties will look just as stunning in the fall, as sleeveless tanks and halter tops do in the summer. See! An all-season staple. It’s honestly all in your head. If you’re confident about what you’re wearing and own it, others will follow suit and these silly clothing rules will officially be a thing of the past.

MY FOREVER SWEATER

I know that I’ve been hellbent on chunky knits lately, and while they’re completely necessary, I’m also into sleek sweaters (which are truly hard to find). This window pane one from J.Jill is one that I’ve been overly obsessed with lately. The funnel neckline makes it feel and look luxurious and sophisticated; and while I’ve only been wearing it pants, I’m anxious to pair it with a black leather skirt. It also comes in a soft blue color that I’m tempted to get my hands on; it’s just one of those sweaters that makes you look ‘together’ even if you’re having a really off day. I think the reason I initially gravitate toward chunky knits is because most fitted sweaters look too long on me and I look like I’m wearing an ill-fitted awkwardly long tunic that I borrowed from my mom. However, this one hits my waist exactly where it needs to, and that’s one of the many reasons I love J.Jill. I really find it frustrating that some of my other favorite brands don’t make all of their styles in petite sizes; it makes a huge difference, especially when shopping for sweaters. J. Jill has a wide variety of petite options, because nearly every style they have is also offered in petite. So, if you’re vertically challenged like me, and want sweaters that complement your frame I suggest investing in some J. Jill knits this season.  They have a great deal of classics, so you can be sure you’ll be wearing them from year to year.
