Take Your Favorite Sweater From Day to Night


With sweater weather on the horizon, we are so excited about one of our favorite items for fall. (Well, favorite besides a pumpkin spice latte). Of course, we’re referring to the Athleta Merino wool sweater, which is the perfect layering piece to take you from day to night. This sweater is classic and cozy and comes in a beautiful Chianti color, which is one of the hottest colors for fall fashion.

Whether you’re out and about running errands (did we mention it has thumb holes?), headed to the office, or out to dinner, this sweater is perfect for all of these occasions. It looks classy styled with black pants and your favorite pumps, or on the go with some skinny jeans and your favorite bag. For those extra cool evenings, pair it with a chic jacket.

Shop this look! Pick up your Athleta Sweater and pair with either black pants or denim. Is the weather feeling chilly? Layer on a jacket for extra warmth.

Complete your look with some chic boots or sandals and a handbag.








Big shout out to Ashley of DTK Austin who styled our favorite Athleta sweater for both a day out and a romantic date night.

Regardless of where your day or night takes you, there is no doubt – this sweater is ready to keep you feeling cozy and looking chic.

The Autumn Edit


The weather is beginning to turn, and autumn is right around the corner. It’s time to start packing up those summer dresses into storage and thinking about the season ahead. Along with the joys of colorful autumn leaves and pumpkin pie also comes the fun in building up your fall wardrobe. To help you plan and streamline your fall shopping, we’ve put together this year’s top six essential fall staples.


Sweater Weather The quintessential cold-weather staple is the warm and cozy sweater. From cardigans to chunky wools, this is the one piece that will fit every fall occasion.

Top-to-Bottom Denim – Denim works for every season, but the color stories for fall are quite distinct. In fall we see darker shades of indigo, a gray palette and even pops of subtle colors such as burgundy and forest green. Pair your denim jackets with everything from sweaters to dresses and even jeans.

Pantone’s Marsala – If you are not familiar, Pantone is the ultimate authority on color theory and trends. Every year Pantone announces the Color of the Year, and last year Marsala won the title. Appropriately named after a deep-toned wine, Marsala brings a rich and luxurious feel to your wardrobe.  

Touch of Texture – Add some sparkle and depth to your style with layered pieces that provide interest. Mix and match textures like lace, velvet, or leather to take your basics from day to night.

Tailored Garments – Summer is all about the loose and flowing fabrics, but with fall, it’s time to suit up. Fall silhouettes are tailored and structured, giving a more sophisticated and formal feel. Shop the collection for trousers, blazers, and fitted dresses.

Mad for Plaid Stay comfortable and warm in the classic flannel plaid shirt. Plaid is a great investment because it returns as a favorite trend every fall. Pair with basic denim or layer under sweaters for an easy-to-wear outfit.
