I’ve been waiting until there was a sale to share this look with you and, thankfully, the Black Friday promo just launched a few days early! I love wearing fair isle this time of year, but some styles can feel a little too directional (and borderline juvenile). The colors of this sweater are perfect if you’re a neutral lover like me. I also like that you can wear it open or buttoned up + the slightly cropped length & balloon sleeves give an updated feel to this classic holiday pattern. This definitely has more of a boxy fit, but I stuck with my usual size so the length would work for my long torso.
I styled it with these buttery soft faux suede pants, which have the 5 pocket styling of denim, but fit like leggings (basically a dream come true). And I thought these hiker boots perfectly complemented this winter-ready look. Unfortunately, these were very popular so there are only a few sizes left. But I also love the taupe color of these & these (they’re water resistant!). If you prefer the look of boots without the sherpa detail, this pair is a great affordable option. And these boots have a sneaker-like sole, which gives them a more casual feel. Or you can opt for a luxe faux fur lined option like these or these.
Ann Taylor is currently offering 50% off with code BLACKFRIDAY (ends 11/28). I just ordered this hoodie & matching joggers (so cozy!) – also love this striped sweater (in classic acorn), this velvet skirt (the emerald green is stunning!), this buttoned cardigan & this ribbed turtleneck.
