If the words "cable knit sweater" don't excite you (trust us, we weren't convinced at first either), stick with us here. Once regarded as the go-to uniform of country clubbers and grandmas everywhere, this season the seemingly stuffy staple has been reinvented completely. With hand placed chunky braided detailing, a swingy hem, and a cropped silhouette, the For Love and Lemons Billy Crop Sweater
is NOT your nana's sweater, and should be styled accordingly. Here are four unexpected ways to wear this East Coast essential and make it worthy of a West Coast wardrobe.
Wear To Work
Whether you're dealing with an overbearing boss, mountains of paperwork or a claustrophobic cubicle, this ensemble is sure to make Mondays suck less. A cropped sweater feels office-appropriate when paired with high waisted trousers
and heeled ankle booties
. Chilly office temps never stood a chance.
We'd argue that beaches are at their best come fall, when the crowds are gone and we've got the sand all to ourselves. Layered over a python-printed one piece
and paired with patent black slides
, a classic cable knit is just the thing we want when the sun goes down and we're cozying up to a beach bonfire.
Run Around Town
On days when your schedule is jam-packed, comfort is key. Baggy denim cutoffs
, a staple knit sweater and a pair of statement ankle booties
are perfect for productive days spent jetting off to coffee dates, shopping, and crossing to-dos off your list.
When you just can't bring yourself to leave the house, we suggest swapping your pants for skivvies
and your comfiest pair of socks
, and snuggling up in a chunky sweater. Whether you're binge-watching your favorite new series or up to something sexier, this getup fits the bill.
