A reader sent an email asking if we had any recent favorites from LOFT, and I realized we haven’t focused on the brand in a while. The last time I walked into a LOFT store was a few weeks ago, but it was right after the post-holiday sales had hit, and I left feeling a little…uh…underwhelmed. Stock may have been lower than usual, but in any case, I thought I’d take a peek online. And whoa — jackpot.
Eight Cute Outfits From LOFT
1. Velvet Jeans & Shades of Tan
You know those super-soft acrylic sweaters from J.Crew? This is LOFT’s version. It’s a little bit thinner than J.Crew’s, but I’m loving the trumpet sleeves. And the cords??? So freaking cute, soft, and flattering. They look just as cute with sneakers as they do with heels.
2. More Dots On Jeans (& Tees)
I’m totally obsessed with LOFT’s faded dot jeans (Madewell has a pair too, but they keep selling out). LOFT’s are super-soft and flattering, but be warned that the rise is not high-rise. I especially loved these with a dotty tee. This tee has LOFT’s signature neckline, and long, slim short sleeves that I’ve come to really love.
3. Black Jeans & A Striped Sweater (My Everyday Kind Of Outfit)
The vibe of this sweater reminds me of my beloved La Ligne sweaters, but it’s done in that super-soft yarn, making it insanely affordable.
4. That Same Striped Sweater With Leggings
More about these leggings down below (Outfit #7)…but I wanted to show the length of the sweater. Works just as well with leggings as it does jeans and a half-tuck.
5. Black & Tan
This sweet little sweater comes in a zillion colors and has some great details: I love the almost-pointelle knit, the fitted shape (without skimping on sleeve length), the cable detail and wider neck. The neckline means that this sweater looks best alone (not layered), but it’s the perfect thing to take you well into Spring. (It also comes in a really pretty blush color, too.)
6. Wide-Legged Sweatpants & The Cutest Matching Sweatshirt
I have a sneaking suspicion that these pants are *supposed* to be cropped, but WHATEVER says the short girl. WHAT. EVER.
7. The Outfit I Want To Wear On The Plane
I didn’t know that I needed tweed leggings (and a matching, oversized hoodie) in my life, but I DO. I really, really do.
These leggings do run a little small in the bum, FYI. It’s almost as if the back is one size smaller than the front, if ya know what I’m sayin. I’m wearing my usual LOFT leggings size (XXS), but I think I’m going to go with an XS.
8. Trouser Sweatpants?
That cute little poncho is actually a really thin, fuzzy fleece. And these trousers I’ve mentioned before — they’re tweed-ish, pinstriped, but really feel more like sweatpants. I’d wear this whole thing to work in a heartbeat.
