PROFILE IN STYLE: 3 sweaters, 3 looks by Candace Read

Style enthusiast Candace Read began cultivating her personal fashion blog in 2012. Candace is also a stylist at a fashion consulting firm located in Columbus, Ohio. She takes her exceptional personal styling and wardrobe consulting services to individual and corporate clients.

We asked Candace to select and share her favorite sweaters from our collection. This is how she’s styling them this fall: 

Fall. Truly, there are so many wonderful things to love about fall. For me, fall brings excitement for one thing and one thing only…THE RETURN OF SWEATERS. Putting on a beloved sweater on a crisp morning is close to magic! 

From recycled cashmere, to wool and alpaca and linen and cotton, there are so many stunning fabrications that will keep you cozy for the cooler weather ahead. And speaking of cool, let’s talk about these and how I styled them. 

LOOK #1: THE WOOL & LINEN LANTERN-SLEEVE CARDIGAN

 The sleeves and the knit detailing make this cardigan extra special. This piece gives me cozy vibes, so I opted to style it with a simple camisole and a button-front velvet skirt. With a sweater that is a touch more oversized, creating shape at the waist is important, so I tucked the camisole in here.

LOOK #2: THE RECYCLED-CASHMERE BOBBLE-STITCH SWEATER

Looking for a sweater with even more textural interest? This one is it. It’s so classic, but also trendy. When wearing a darker color on the top, I like to create contrast by adding a rich, bold color on the bottom. Hence, these fun, cropped wide-leg trousers in dark caramel. 

LOOK #3: THE TWO-PIECE SWEATER SET 

There are a few things that I love about this set. First, it’s knit and that makes it comfortable. Second, it’s a skirt and sweater combo, which makes the set feel polished and elevated. And finally, this Gold Medallion color is simply electric. This hue is my new neutral, so to speak. 

When styling this look, I opted to pair this sweater set with an ankle boot to make it feel even more sophisticated. Also, I added a belt to define my waist and scrunched up those sleeves. Another great thing about this set is that it can be dressed down and worn casually with a favorite sneaker style and a moto jacket. 

I hope you are feeling inspired and ready to live your best sweater life this fall! For more inspiration, explore Garnet Hill’s latest collection.
