anyone else tired of winter? february has a way with grey skies and cold temps. take heart, spring is closer than we think. i know, i know, punxsutawney phil predicted six more weeks of winter. but we can do this! so when the temps are cold, it’s time to pull out the heavy artillery. this winter i am loving the cable knit turtleneck from everlane. last time i wore it on the blog here i paired it with white denim and boots. this time around i dressed up this chunky sweater with the addition of grey stripe sloan pants by banana republic. if you haven’t tried these pants, then get thee to a banana republic store ASAP. you won’t be disappointed.
when we lived in san francisco, i was a frequent patron of banana’s flagship store located on sutter and grant. it’s a sight to behold, sporting hardwood floors and a spiral staircase that leads to the women’s department. that’s when i discovered one of my favorite pants – the sloan. it’s made with patented technology that j.crew was keen to copy. in my opinion it’s one of the most comfortable pair of pants on the market with a sculpted skinny fit that hits your ankle.
sloan’s come in a variety of colors and patterns, so i imagine there’s one pair that will suit your fancy. sometimes, grey pants are hard to come by so i pounced when i spotted these grey stripes. the flat front is flattering with a sleek tailored leg. but what i love best about sloan’s is the fabric that has stretch and recovery to sculpt your figure.
the color scheme is kept monochromatic by adding a pair of grey suede shoes and handbag. and jewelry? there’s only an addition of a silver cuff. but you’ll notice there are several textures at play with the cable knit, stripes, and suede that add a little oomph to this simple ootd. i guess you’d say this one is in the books.
