Chic Knits

Styling spring knits to look fabulous at work or play

The weather warmed up last week and I got to take these chic knits our for a spin in Battery Park City in New York. I'd been eyeing these new pieces from the cabi spring collection--they looked so good on the runway, and I'm thrilled to say they feel even better on.

I was traveling in the city for a little "staycation" at the Conrad Hotel with my daughter. We wanted to dress up and I wanted to be chic and comfortable, hence the knits. I think knits are perfect for work or play--and I was going to do a bit of both.

First let's talk about this Dame Skirt. It's a knee-skimming length with a bit of swirl. It could go to an office or out to dinner without missing a beat. I am glad to see waistlines on the move back upwards. This skirt will sit on your actual waist.

You could wear it with flats or go dressier, as I did, with a pump. I picked out these metallic pumps from Nine West. Fancy for sure.

I paired it with a navy top (I will say the colors are 95% of a match but not 100--but it doesn't matter). I just love this top. It's so easy to slip on--it feels like a favorite t-shirt (and, in fact, can be worn under a blazer too!) but has structure enough to look super professional.

It's called the Hampton Shell and the stripes are perfectly places to accentuate your positives.

Spring Knit Fashion Tips

  1. Monochromatic knits will elongate your body.
  2. Go with a bold accessory. This lucite necklace helps modernize the outfit.
  3. Metallics are in. Jazz up this outfit for date night with a shiny shoe.
  4. Watch the jewelry. Knits can snag so be careful with clasps!
  5. Keep things smooth. My favorite panties are from Soma. You can also go for spanx.
