Knits, Knits& more Knits

What better way to face this harsh weather than looking fabulous in the latest trend?  Unless you've been living under a rock you know what I mean, and if you need a hint how about Céline or Marc Jacobs? Is it clear now? Knit sets people, knit sets! They warm my heart, literally and figuratively. Now, for those who are like me and can't afford Céline or Marc Jacobs (though his knit pants are on sale 70% off at Net-A-Porter) I'm gonna show you how to look just as fab while saving hundreds, if not thousands because after all the trick is to not look broke even if you are broke. 

Here are the original looks...

Here are the looks that Zara, Topshop, and so forth have developed, thank God for dupes....

Now, the key is to get your hands on knit bell bottom trousers because you can get sweaters from anywhere. As mentioned Topshop, Zara and H&M have their own style of these trousers in grey ranging from $50-$70, which is not bad at all for such a chic yet comformable style of pant (Click company name to view). Loose, long sweaters are being sold everywhere especially at the sites previously mentioned. Once you've tracked down the pants, and the sweater try pairing them with a clean sneaker, maybe Superstar Adidas, Stan Smiths, Nike Air Max 90's, or slip ons. If you want to dress up the pants try a minimal sandal pump, or a pointed toe pump.
