This past week we shared all our new winter arrivals from Gentle Fawn and to say that we were impressed would be an understatement! I’m just going to throw it out there and say that I am not a fan of winter, so thank goodness for all the fabulous sweaters, cute cardigans, and rockin bodysuits that help us slay our way through the winter blues!
To kick things off, I’m going to start with a winter must have, the chunky knit “Lorne Sweater”. This beautiful dusty rose coloured sweater features a turtleneck and bell sleeves and retails for $159! Keep in mind that this sweater is a little shorter in the body (not cropped), so if you have a longer torso you may prefer pairing this with high rise denim. My favourite way to style this sweater would be with faded high rise black denim, a black leather jacket, and a chunkier belt! That way when you add a little tuck with the front of your sweater the belt completes the look!
Next up is the “Atticus Kimono”- $58. If you have been following along with our blog, then you may remember me talking about the “Kirin Fractal Print Kimono”. These kimonos are essentially the same style, but with an updated colour and different finish on the hem. If you loved the first version, then you will definitely love this one! These kimonos are my favourite for travel days, because they also work great as a scarf or blanket! If you find a kimono too sloppy, try belting it for a more fitted look.
Bodysuits have slowly been making their comeback, but this winter season they are back in full force!!! So if you are having trouble jumping on this trend, I highly recommend being open minded and just trying one on…you never know, you may just end up falling in love! Even if you aren’t into wearing the bodysuit as a top itself, they make for great layering pieces under oversized sweaters! I am absolutely O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D with all THREE of the new bodysuits we received from Gentle Fawn! They are all so stunning and will be fantastic for the holidays. The “Vivienne Bodysuit”-$70 comes in black and gold satin, and features a deep v-neckline and snap bottom closure. This bodysuit would look amazing paired with our David Lerner “Tube Pencil Skirt” and black pumps.
The “Divina Bodysuit”-$89 takes the cake for being the “IT” bodysuit this holiday season! Featuring long sleeves, an open back, and the perfect amount of mesh and lace detail. One of my favourite things about this bodysuit is how sexy it is without being too revealing.
Gentle Fawn is known for their florals and the new “Goldie Blouse” and “Rosatello Dress” are both available in the stunning Gem colour. The “Goldie Blouse”-$105 is cropped and fitted through the waist, and features a slightly puffed sleeve. Just a heads up, if you purchase this item online, there is a little hidden zipper on the side of the top that you will want to undo to make it much easier to get in and out of. If you love this print, but prefer wearing a dress then you will want to check out the “Rosatello Dress”- $140. This mini dress features long sleeves, a v-neck, and is slightly longer in the back making it a super flattering fit! Pair this dress with brown boots or booties. To see how these items look on, don’t forget to check out our try-on sessions attached below!
Whether you’re a sweater girl or all about those cardigans, these next two items are the best combination of both. What’s better than having the style of a cardigan, but the coziness of a sweater?!? Not a whole heck of a lot if you ask me! The “Kinross Cardigan”-$140 is available in dusty rose and is a cocoon style chunky knit cardigan.
The cropped style “Goodwin Cardigan” is a personal favourite of mine because of its rich wine colour and super soft fabric. This chic cardigan is the perfect way to elevate a casual look and retails for just $135.
I talk a lot about how important it is to have basics in your wardrobe, but it’s equally as important to have those slightly dressier but simple pieces such as tanks/camisoles for layering under blazer, cardigans, etc. The “Gabi Tank”-$70 is a flowy fit tank top with adjustable straps and would be a perfect addition to any wardrobe. This tank is available in black and floral.
The "Camden Top" is a classic black V-neck blouse with bell sleeves and retails for just $98. This is the perfect top to wear from the office to a night out. In the day pair this blouse with a pencil skirt and flats, and with dark denim and animal print booties for post work cocktails!
If you are still on the hunt for the perfect black dress for the holiday season, then check out the new “Sammi Dress”. This little number is a form fitting, high neck dress with cutout back detail, and the best part is that it’s under $100!! This dress is so versatile and can be worn for so many different occasions! It’s never too early to start looking for that NYE outfit, and I think that this dress paired with a great heel and some sparkly jewelry would be a great option. Another way I would style this dress would be with the “Atticus Kimono”, over the knee boots, and the Lack of Color “Paco” Hat.
