As much as I hate to admit it, I’m excited to pull out my warmer clothes and cozy up near a fire at night. I’m not looking forward to the snow, but at least I have cozy pieces to keep me warm. This Fall weather can be tricky in Calgary, is it going to be hot with the sun or will there be frost on the ground? You just never really know what you’re going to get. As a native Calgarian, I think I’ve gotten better at the middle-season, where layers are key and keeping a jacket, umbrella and hat in your car will keep you prepared for anything.
I recently did a little shopping at Lolë in the Core downtown to find a few more items for my Fall wardrobe that will help me transition into the colder winter months (how is it already November?!) and found the most chic pieces that we’re fashionable AND ultra comfy. When you go in there prepare yourself to want to buy everything in sight.
It was a really hard decision but I ended up with a knit turtleneck, v-neck sweater, joggers and workout tights. Not exactly a full outfit, but I couldn’t say no! The outfit I put together for this post is the joggers and sweater, it’s a comfy combo that is very versatile. You can lounge out on the couch at home, run a few errands or even grab coffee with your friends. There is no reason why you can’t wear sweatpants in public.
Both of these pieces layer well, but you just have to be careful to not look like a slob when wearing grey joggers. I recommend keeping the jacket shorter and classier or wearing shoes to counteract the joggers like booties or heels. It elevates your outfit choice and will keep you comfy and cozy without having people question if you just woke up. The joggers could also be worn with a silk tank, fitted t-shirt or plaid button up.
Similarly, the v-neck sweater can go from cozy to fancy just by switching up the rest of the outfit. Easily paired with jeans, dress pants or a skirt, the sweater can be worn all day and transition into the evening. The back is long enough so it’s the perfect top for leggings and boots – a classic fall look. Find these pieces online or in any Lolë store!
