Casual Cool

Casual cool- looking chic, even at your most casual of moments.  We all know a woman (or two) who pulls off looking "casual" without looking sloppy. A look emerging on many  runways as we delve into the winter-spring transition is a juxtaposition of casual cool with femininity. Loose-fitting sweaters with feminine skirts are showing up everywhere and providing a new silhouette to try in the new year.  You can layer this look for added warmth and varying temperatures as the seasons change.




Pairing your sweater with an A-Line skirt gives this look a 50s throwback feel.




For a more bohemian take on the trend, pair a loose sweater with a maxi skirt.  To keep the look tailored, pair your favorite maxi with a cropped sweater to keep your waist defined.

  4. Honestly I don't have too many clothes to make those types of silhouttes, but I really like the collection you've gathered here. I'd wear any one of those & add a leather jacket on top for a little bit extra warmth
