Styling Big, Cozy Sweaters: Two Ideas To Try

Can one ever have enough styling inspiration for big, cozy sweaters?

No.  One cannot.


Cozy Turtleneck + Moto Denim + Stiletto Boots

Why not pair the coziest sweater ever with tough moto skinnies and unbelievably sexy boots?  WHY HAVEN’T I BEEN WEARING THIS ALREADY?  It takes my breath, really it does.  Clearly it’s time to unearth my ancient pointy-toe stilettos from our scary basement.  I’m confidant that I still have, well, one of them.  Wish me luck finding the other.  Sigh.  #deathbyspiders

cozy sweaters and moto jeans


Inspiration:  Emerson Fry, my complete and total obsession.  The sweater (backordered), Mick pant, and Midi boot.

Date Night:

Garnet Hill Horizontal-Cable Knit Sweater, $228

Hudson Jeans Coated Moto Skinny, $245 (use AMTOPM for 40% off)

Nine West Paintedhrt, $145

Play Date:

J.Crew Cambridge Cable Turtleneck, $98

Free People Millenium Moto Jeans, $128

Nine West Thomasa, $149


It’s hard to reproduce that amazing sweater exactly, but if you are willing to forgo the cable knits for great swing, try Boden’s Off-Duty Sweater (on sale for $96).


Marled Turtleneck + Big Belt + Skinnies

A half-tuck is one thing…but Elin adds in a hip-slung wide belt.  Sofreakingcool.

Inspiration:  Elin King

Date Night:

Aqua Cashmere Sweater, on sale for $157

Rag and Bone The Legging Jeans, $165

BCBG Wide Stud Bar Waist Belt, $48

Nine West Guetette, $89

Play Date:

GAH!  The Zara sweater is gone!  This is why I hate linking to Zara – stuff sells out overnight.  OK.  Try this one or this one instead.

Blank Denim Skinny Jeans, $78

Calvin Klein Wide Buckle Belt, $20

Kamik Temptress Boots, $110


Can you believe Thanksgiving is almost here?  No one is planning to shop on the actual holiday, are you?  I REFUSE.

    Ummmm, I think that if you’re doing S-style before S posts about it you ARE cool. 🙂

    Emerson Fry makes me all hot and bothered. I found this wide belt on sale over there that can go with your second look:|utmccn=(organic)|utmcmd=organic|utmctr=(not%20provided)&__utmv=-&__utmk=137468592

    Sexy, tough, and wearable…the holy grail…I love this, Shana! I’ve moved house (and country) about 5 times since I last wore my own stiletto boots, here’s to hoping I can unearth them somewhere.
    On a different note, I am looking for advice on high-waisted jeans (skinny and straight leg). Have you tried any, if so do you have favourites?

    Had to share this sweater- not exactly like these, but inspired by your looks. It is best on taller mamas, but it is gorgeous. I bought it today and plan on pairing it with my coated moto skinnies and ankle booties tomorrow. Thanks for the inspiration!

    What is that zippered boot in the top right pic? I clicked on the Nine west link and that heel looks higher in the picture?
