When the weather drops I always mix knits to ensure that I will not be a complete ice cube the entire day. So layering, mixing, and combining pieces keep me snug (and sane) during fall and winter! For me it can be a bit overwhelming while mixing knits because I want to be warm and also a little stylish. But I have found that it all depends on the type of pieces that I want to combine/wear together.
Lately I have been seeing cut off cowl neck/mock neck sweaters everywhere and I have to say, I am ALL for the trend. However, I don’t always know how to style them due to always being cold and living in a state where it is only getting colder from here on, until spring starts. So this is one way that I try to make it work: by throwing a thick chunky ‘grandma-looking’ cardigan over it. I love that these are two different types of knits that have similar ribbing which makes them flow together easily.
I have the cowl neck cut off tucked into a comfy pair of high-waisted jeans and then threw on some ankle booties. I sometimes wear this combo to give the illusion of looking taller than I actually am. (And the illusion of having longer legs, because hey why not.)
For jewelry I kept it simple; a watch and beaded bracelet combo that I am always wearing. (If there is such thing as a safety blanket for accessories, that’s what these two accessories are to me.) And then a long necklace to top off the outfit.
And there we have it: comfortably mixing knits, ready to pick some pumpkins or frolic through an apple orchard in a warm yet stylish way!
