It might take LA a long time to get into the fall spirit– it was still 90+ degrees just a couple of weekends ago– but when it finally decides to take a turn for cooler weather we Angelenos jump on it! This year for the first time ever, I got so into the idea of sweater weather that I actually went sweater shopping!
Here are my three favorite trends for this season and some ideas for how to style each of them. If you love the actual sweater so much you just have to own it yourself, just click on the highlighted links or the carousel below to see where I snagged it from.
First up, the number one thing you guys keep sending me DM’s about… turtleneck sweaters! I can’t remember the last time I bought a turtleneck –or even a mock turtleneck!– and this season I bought two! The first is this softer than soft off-white number and it’s worth mentioning that if you’re going to get it you should also get these pearl hoops. I bought them to pair with this sweater but I’ve been wearing them with EVERYTHING.
The second turtleneck I bought is actually two of my trends in one– it’s gonna keep your neck warm AND it’s a jewel tone (which I’ll talk about in a minute). This deep ruby turtleneck sweater is awesome because it’s super lightweight.
Next up, Jewel Tones! Jewel tones as in, sweaters that are the color of jewels. Think of my ruby turtleneck or emerald, sapphire, gold… colors that are perfect for fall and work on every skin tone I can think of.
I snagged this great red number earlier in the season and I bought it a size bigger (this is a medium) so it would be sort of slouchy and cool like the popular girl from an 80’s movie.
I wear it with my dark wash Hudson jeans or my high rise Levis (like in the shot below of me and Noah on the way to church) but either way I do a loose half tuck in to make it look a little less voluminous.
Along the same lines of the rich, bold color is this deep yellow sweater I picked up when I was in New York a few weeks ago.
In this instance, I actually bought the size small but it’s still a little slouchy on me so I went with the half-tuck. This is the perfect sweater to elevate my mom game… meaning, dropping off my kids in this sweater with a lightweight jacket thrown over the top instead of you know, in my pajamas.
The last theme that I’m loving because it’s so fun is embellished sleeves!
This gray embellished sweater was a dream find during my trip to Minneapolis. I love that it’s something unique amidst trends we’ve seen for years.
If you end up getting any of the sweaters — or even rocking your own version of one of these trends– tag me in your pic on Instagram so I can see what you’re stylin’ this fall.
