No matter what season we are currently in, a quality pair of denim trousers is always a MUST in your closet. It’s comfy as * and extremely versatile too. Unless you’re attending a black-tie event, it’s hard to come up with an occasion where you couldn’t pass with a jeans’ look. With the right fit and the right accessories, of course!

This outfit is pretty much my uniform these days. Great for picking up groceries, comfy for travelling, presentable enough to meet your friends in town – you name it. With your hair slicked up for immediate chicness and a pair of sparkly earrings, this could easily become a perfect party look. Or it also could be dressed down to a casual ‘weekend in the countryside’ ensemble – just switch to a pair of sneakers and throw on a chunky cardigan to keep you cosy and warm.

I could keep naming great options non-stop, yet firstly you need a good pair of jeans, right? I trust Lindex for a number of years now. They have a plenty of fits for every body type, I’m sure you’ll find something just for you.

ivoblog -- sweaters for autumn 2018 (10)

By Malene Birger

The “stay warm” topic is very much relevant today, as it is getting colder every hour, and it will stay relevant for four more months (if not longer), at least in the northern part of Europe, where I am based at the moment. That said, I prepared a little post with my top choices for this season. When it comes to sweaters, I am a big believer in quality materials since that is exactly what will help you to keep the optimal body temperature. Lucky me, my mom has golden hands and knits from time to time (check the latest piece of knitwear here), so during the years I’ve gathered a nice collection of thick, -30°C weather approved sweaters.

However, I’m still not sure that what I have is enough for a Lithuanian winter, so I took some time to surf through online stores and check what’s good in there. Here’s what I found, I hope you’ll find something you like too! Or at least you’ll get inspired to wrap yourself up in some warm knitwear. There’s definitely stuff to choose from.

IVO BLOG knits for autumn (14)

I don’t enjoy days getting shorter (who does?), but the fact that you can wrap yourself up in numerous layers of garments makes autumn so much fun! It’s a season when you can easily get away with wearing half of your wardrobe at once. In order to stay warm and chic, of course. A pair of trousers + a dress + a knitted jumper all together is more than ok. Actually, I could have probably put on even more layers, like a shirt underneath (for that collar brim to come out) and a thick coast-west on top. Yet the day wasn’t as cold, so I stopped where you see I did.

You probably already got the idea of what my main tip for staying warm during the winter is. And yes, you’re right – LAYERS is the word. Surely, you can also look into those termo underwear brands, I heard that helps too but layering seems to me like a much more fun way to survive the cold season.

Try it yourself and stay warm.
