CABLE SWEATER LAYERED

IN BLACK AND WHITE

Cable knit sweaters have been a classic trend rooting back from the maritime days and have since then turned into a stable piece found in almost every fashionistas closet. One thing I particularly love about cable knit sweaters is the functionality behind the weaving (did you know that the weave helps insulate heat?) along with the patterned details crafted from cable knitting. While some articles of clothing are meant for males or females, cable knit sweaters are unisex looking particularly well on all. Thus, if there's any one sweater that I'd recommend you keeping or purchasing this winter the cable knit sweater is my suggested must-have.

WRAPPED IN WARMTH

IN A BLANKET SCARF

When it comes to keeping warm my goal is to be comfortable and cozy and my go-to accessory for achieving this is through a scarf. The blanket scarf in particular has been a favorite winter piece of mine for its versatility in structure and its ability to dramatically keep me warm. The size makes it easy to wrap around your body, while the fabric makes it easy to bundle up into. While it never gets that cold in California, having something as versatile as a scarf definitely helps keep me temperature regulated. Anyways, I hope you all had a very merry holiday and have a great New Years!
