Jacket & boots: Zara | jeans : DL1961 | bag: Saint Laurent

If there’s an “it” jacket this season, it’s the oversized “aviator” jacket— and I love these for so many reasons.  Often in (faux) suede or (faux) leather, with a shearling or fur collar and cuffs, they’re at the same time functional and chic— tomboyish in an “Amelia Earhart- rogue” kind of way, modern yet classic and timeless. If you like a motorcycle jacket, THIS is your winter version— they can be worn basically with ANYTHING, just as you would a moto jacket— to dress down or edge up a dress or skirt, with jeans or leather leggings, or like I did this morning, to “pull together” a really casual Sunday- deli- run look, over leggings and a sweatshirt with sneaks— I immediately felt less lazy! Below, shop my “six picks” at a variety of price points!

6) $158– Vintage check camel aviator jacket… as I’m typing this, I’m realizing I need this one too! It has great 70s vibes and is statement making without being too loud… the pattern is everything.

Outfit Inspo : H&M Sweaters Three Ways

I definitely have an on again- off again relationship with H&M— in the past, some of their pieces just haven’t fit me right and feel a little too “fast fashion” (not so good quality)— but I have to say, this fall/winter, they have been KILLING IT in the sweater department! At price points under $50, there are SO MANY good choices this season, and the quality is impeccable! See how I styled three of my current faves below:

Black sweater with tulle sleeves | black skinny jeans | Edgy square toe heels 

Look 1: I love an “un-basic” black piece— sometimes wearing black, while being flattering and feeling safe, can fall a little flat style wise… enter the black statement piece! A top like this sweater, with chiffon blousy sleeves, totally makes the outfit more interesting… I paired it with my fave black Madewell jeans and these new square toe, edgy black strap heels from Zara, and my red Chanel to add an unexpected element. Look for black pieces with a extra special detail, structure or embellishment.

Camouflage embossed sweater | grey skinny jeans | white booties | white sunnies and bag: Saint Laurent

Look 2: Always a sucker for a camo print, when I saw this sweater I knew I had to have it! It’s the perfect mix of tomboyish and girly, kind of a subtle take on camo.  I went for grey jeans with this look to pull from the base color of the sweater, and paired it with my fave white booties and sunnies to make the white in the sweater pop even more.

Red sweaterRed fine knit sweater in two other colors here | rust overall dress | furry Pom Pom sneakers

Look 3: Red is definitely the color of the season, and this sweater offers endless styling possibilities! I’ve already worn it with a denim skirt, with jeans, with a leather mini, and most recently, layered under this rust overall dress for a take on a color blocked mono chromatic-ish look.  I love layering unexpected pieces under overalls, and the balloonish sleeves on this super soft sweater make it a great piece to put under an overall dress (any top with cool sleeves is perf to layer under a strapping dress or overalls in my opinion). Some of you guys might be nervous to pair two similar colors like this together, but I feel like it really works well when two shades of a similar color are blocked together— as long as it looks purposeful and not accidental!

Ok guys, that’s it for now— I DEF recommend swinging by H&M this season to check out their sweater selection … and hopefully use these outfits as inspiration for how to style them!

xo, ❤
