Composed & Comfortable

Compose yourself comfortably for client conferences.

Some days you need to be put together, but don’t need to be in a full suit, or even suit separates. For the more casual and candid fall / winter days that still require professional attire, I like to pair chunky sweaters with dresses.

This sweater has been a favorite for a long time as it’s actually fairly structured through the arm and body, but then has a large collar that makes it comfy. It travels really well, provides awesome warmth when temperatures cool, and pulls together more casual looks with ease. It has retained its shape through the years which is also a big concern with this type of sweater (the elbows typically bag out and they lose their shape).  I’ve paired it with one of my black office dresses that I wear often and when coupled with a more structured dress shoe it creates a grounded and composed ensemble.

Considerately choose your clothing composition and you can be composed and comfortable!

All my best,
