Wintry Getaways: Chill-Proof Knits

I suppose winter is officially upon us, it being January and all... le sigh. After booking my trip to Paris, I've been on the hunt for sweaters that won't bog down my suitcase with unnecessary weight, and will give me the confidence to traipse around Paris during Fashion Week! 

What makes a smart sweater? I prefer my knitwear to have a fun feminine touch (tasteful cutouts and girlish, not garish, colors), come in a blend to avoid the inevitable wool-itch and feature a figure-flattering shape (avoid large baggy items if you have a petite frame!). Here are my top 3 picks to pack...

  1.  Alexander Wang Cut Out Sweater - $158 via The Outnet
  2. 3.1 Phillip Lim Silk Raglan Sweatshirt - $225 via Neiman Marcus
  3. 3.1 Phillip Lim Cowl Neck Sweater - $175 via ShopBop

Do you have a fun winter wonderland or tropical getaway planned? Where are you headed and WHAT are you wearing?


  1. Ohhh these are so cute & comfy looking :)

    The Other Side of Gray

  2. I'll take them all ;)
    I've had my eye on that Alexander Wang one for a while, I love the cutout

  3. You are going to Paris for fashion week?!?!?!!? I can't handle my jealousy... can't handle it.

    Love number 1!

  4. I hate chunky sweaters, so these are perfect for me. They keep you warm without making you feel 10 pounds heavier.
