It’s the time of the year when bold colors and patterns dominate our wardrobes. Think chevron, ikat, trellis, and the classic argyle pattern on warm browns, navy blues, and of course, the mighty black. This Khaite argyle sweater is truly one of a kind from the incredible fabric to the bold pattern.
This winter, I vowed to experiment with different patterns and argyle was the first on my list. I had been eyeing this snuggly Siro Sweater from Khaite for a while and got the perfect chance to bag it on sale. I admit that it comes with a slightly hefty price tag but this uniquely feminine brand is worth every cent. Khaite specializes in simple but sophisticated cuts and knitwear that feels so inherently luxurious that celebs are now a fan of the brand.
But I waited for the sale and I recommend that you do too. The Khaite argyle sweater features a striking and expansively scaled argyle pattern in black and ivory. The crew neck complements its straight structure. It’s bouclé knit with 53% silk and 47% cashmere so you can imagine how ridiculously soft, snuggly, and comfy it is. The cuffs and hem are finished with fisherman’s-rib-stitched trim giving it a clean look. I’ve always loved intarsia-knit sweaters and pullovers because that’s what makes them not boring. The good news is that Khaite has a nice variety of intarsia-knitted (patterned) sweaters and cardigans. Plus, an ongoing sale. So, the time is now to get your hands on these beauties.
I paired it with leather leggings to make things even more interesting. Because if you’re not going with layering, the next best thing is combining textures. Knitwear + leather is a combination for girls who want a little bit of everything. I call it the best of both worlds. It’s cozy and edgy. Sweet and savage. Nothing against jeans but leather pants are my new best friend. They would be yours too especially when you’re wearing a chunky, laid-back sweater. Sleek and smart leather pants would provide a sartorial balance.
I finished the look with black boots that complemented the leather pants. A pair of classic black pumps would also look great with the outfit but I wanted to feel comfy (and cool). So, overall it turned out to be a cute and casual winter outfit that’s perfect to wear to movies, lunches, and girls’ day out.
The bag is my forever favorite Chanel flap bag with gold hardware. Just the right amount of bling to uplift the outfit.
