Topshop’s Cozy Winter Clothes Are 30% Off Right Now

So, it’s now February and it has been…hot? By that I mean, it’s been above 40 degrees. But let’s not get our hopes up for spring to make moves, even though the groundhog predicted it, because unless you were born yesterday, you know this nice weather won’t last. Unfortunately, it will be f*cking freezing again soon, and it’s even supposed to snow next week. Kill me now, please. On the bright side, having this news in advance allows us to prep for the weather the best way we can: scoping out the biggest deals to grab a cheap yet warm coat, durable boots, or fuzzy sweater to bundle up in for the office. Oh, you thought I would say something about stocking up on bread and milk? No, I’m not your mom. Clothing-wise, Topshop is saving all of our asses with their knits, coats, and boots sale. These items are up to 30% off and tbh, a lot of cute things are extremely affordable. RIP my credit card. Here are a few pieces that are worth adding to your cart to gear up for our next polar vortex.

1. Stab Stitch Logo Sweatshirt By Ivy Park

Ivy Park is like, the more DGAF version of Lululemon. Queen Bey’s athleisure street style brand is perfect for the gym, daily strolls, and your fitness Instagrams. This comfy cropped sweatshirt comes in black, so it goes with everything, and can just as easily be worn with jeans as with leggings to actually work out in.

2. Furry Sweater

This pullover sweatshirt is described as being extra soft and furry, so I assume it feels like wearing your favorite blanket. I can’t think of anything more perfect, tbh. For the winter season, this sweater allows you to fully embrace the lifestyle of Netflix & hibernation with or without a blanket, in and out of the house.

3. Corduroy Zip Up Jacket

Just looking at this is keeping me warm in this cold af office. Lined with borg, which btw, is faux sheepskin and happens to be v similar to shearling, this thick, heavy-duty jacket is made to keep you warm and cozy even in the worst of weather.

4. Love Brushed Borg Sweatshirt

I’m not usually a fan of graphic prints or anything of that nature, but this minimal embroidery is kind of cute and adds a pop of color to this muted periwinkle. This is yet another ridiculously soft sweater with borg material to keep you warm and cozy in just the right amount of fluff.

5. BABE Block Heel Ankle Boot

These cute little two inch heeled booties come in festive colors and prints, including a bold fuchsia snake pattern. They’re made out of this super long word that basically means durable plastic, so while they look great for hitting up bars, they’re also good for wading through slush.

6. Black Corduroy Joni Jeans

These may be corduroy, but whether you like the look of the material or not, you’ll hardly be able to tell since they look like regular jeans. The super skinny style grazes the ankle, fits as high-waisted, and flatters your whole bottom half.

7. KOKO Unlined Flat Leather Boots

Give your everyday Chelsea boots a break with these elevated ankle booties. You can slip right into them, walk forever with the low heel, and still jazz a lame outfit up with the silver accent if you look close enough.

Cute Lightweight Sweaters That Won’t Make You Sweat

Everyone loves fall, and everyone loves a good fall sweater. Well, mostly everyone. Some of us (yes, me) seem to be going through early menopause on a daily basis. You know, like having random hot flashes and just casually sweating all the time??? Fun stuff. Therefore, although a sweater looks cute and cozy while I’m getting ready in the morning, by midday, I feel like I’m suffocating. And, not be dramatic or anything, but feel like I’m slowly losing oxygen by the minute. However, there IS a solution for all of us Sweaty Bettys out there who still want to embrace all of the cute and trendy fall sweaters. We, too, can take Instagram-worthy “candids” in cable knit sweaters while holding pumpkin spice lattes, just like all those other girls! We will no longer be personally victimized by suffocating sweaters! The solution: lightweight sweaters.

Ladies, help me, help you. No one needs you turning into the Incredible Hulk midday of your 9-5 and manically tearing off your sweater. That’s just a HR nightmare waiting to happen, and you don’t need that kind of drama in your life. I’ve found five styles of lightweight sweaters that are a lot more breathable than the average sweater, so that you don’t have to be the office hoe.

Don’t be this girl:

1. Open Knit

Open knit sweaters are the definition of lightweight sweaters. The loosely knit structure of the sweater means that air can still flow through, keeping you breezy throughout the day. Basically, wear one of these sweaters and you won’t feel like you’re in one of those sweat lodge space suit things the second it gets a little warm.

2. Open Back

When we start to get hot, one of the first places most of us start to sweat is our back. Therefore, a sure way to eliminate this from happening is to wear a sweater with an open back. I know, I’m like, so smart, right? The open back obviously allows for easy air flow, plus you won’t be obsessing over whether everyone can see your gross sweat stains. Win-win.

3. Off The Shoulder

Off the shoulder sweaters are great because they allow you to wear a sweater without feeling like your sweater has the hidden agenda of killing you slowly. There’s nothing worse than when you’re wearing a turtleneck and, all of a sudden, you start slightly sweating, and then omg, is this turtleneck getting tighter? Is this thing trying to choke me?? Omg, am I going to suffer death-by-turtleneck???? The panic of being overheated while wearing a turtleneck is what I imagine it feels like to be a manic Bachelor in Paradise contestant who just got dumped and is desperately trying to find a new rose to stay on the show. All while sweating profusely on national television. Anyway, here are some cute off the shoulder lightweight sweaters.

4. Cropped

Cropped sweaters are a great option for fall, because the silhouette allows for some midriff breathability. Although the downside is that they do require abs amidst a winter-bod-mode mindset, and probs some good self-tanner, too. I recommend wearing a cropped sweater with some high waisted pants so that you just show a sliver of skin—just enough to just keep you cool. And also so you don’t get called into HR for having your belly button ring stick out.

5. Distressed

Distressed clothing has been vvv trendy for the past few seasons now, and continues to be for fall. Not only is it trendy, but it also allows for air flow and is a go-to breathable sweater option. You don’t need to go all Yeezy-level distressed though to get some extra breathability. A few subtle rips and tears is all you need to ensure you’re sweat-free!

It’s never cute to be the girl sweating, especially when you look like the girl who is trying to be cute but is totally being curbed by her incessant sweating. Nothing says effortless LESS than the girl dripping through her fall ~lewk~. Fortunately, you don’t have to be that girl, as long as you get one of these lightweight sweaters.

5 Oversize Sweaters You Can Wear Without Pants This Winter

We’re in full swing of every thot’s fave time of year, aka fall. With October upon us, the temperatures are getting colder faster than we can say PSL. In addition to the little black boot, sweaters are like, the best trend fall fashion has to offer. There’s nothing better than nursing your hangover, running errands, or even meeting your posse at the bar while wearing the world’s comfiest oversize sweater—with no pants, of fucking course. Sweater weather already has models we strive to be as skinny as (Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, obviously) strutting streets in baggy sweaters and cute heels, because IDK, maybe even celebs run out of clean leggings, too. If worn correctly, a bulky sweater will most def *not* make you look bloated af or look like a sack of potatoes. Just take it from the expert, okay? Here are the most comfortable, yet trendy oversize sweaters you can totally wear as a dress, because like, fuck pants.

1. AGOLDE High Low Hoodie

This pullover hoodie screams Kardashian in the sense that I’m almost positive every single one of them wears a hoodie as a dress at least once a week. This cotton high-to-low hoodie comes in two different colors (our go-to black and millennial pink), each with a drawstring hood. The asymmetrical hem provides good enough coverage to go pants-less in confidence. Pair with sock boots and you can totes go out in public in this before indulging in a low-key wine night.

2. Theory Merino Wool Off-The-Shoulder Oversized Sweater

Wool is typically avoided because it’s uncomfortable and itchy AF. I know beauty is pain, but wool is usually the exception because it’s just not worth it most of the time. Thank god this lightweight oversize sweater is designed with luxury wool—the shit that doesn’t itch—to keep you warm and v comfy in the cooler months. It features an extra wide neck so it can be worn off the shoulder for an effortlessly chic look while you Netflix and chill with your latest cuffing season fling. Order a size up from your usual so you can easily style, no pants required.

3. Ted Baker Oversized Cashmere Mix Sweater Dress

Nothing says “I’m an important fucking person” like wearing some high-class cashmere. With dropped shoulders and a tie front, this sweater dress looks perf over any body type without making you look (or feel) pudgy. Even after several vodka sodas, you can adjust the tie to hide your bloat and still look skinny. Pair with sexy thigh-highs and your friends will be begging to borrow your outfit next time you go out.

4. Zara Oversized Textured Sweater

Whether you’re doing the walk of shame or lying comatose on your couch, you may as well look semi-decent doing it. Opt for a textured sweater that brings a fun element to a carefree look by styling with a non-suffocating corset belt and ankle strap heels. From night to daybreak, you’ll be the last one standing in absolute comfort and style, two words that are rarely in the same sentence.

5. Opening Ceremony Off-The-Shoulder Wool-Blend Sweater Dress

For an option that balances sex appeal and classiness, this oversize sweater comes with off-the-shoulder sleeves and a ribbed trim for the ideal relaxed fit. Bless. The length comes to just above the knee, but you can def go up a size for extra comfort. Feel free to take this to the office and pair with your overly worn Adidas Superstar sneakers for something more casual. If you plan on grabbing drinks, elevate the look with block-heeled boots.

The 5 Jackets And Cardigans You Need To Get Through Fall

Fall is the shit because I can wear leggings 24/7 and get away with wearing just a big-ass sweater because like, fashion. Even though there’s a 30% chance my breasts can tell weather experts say it’s going to be a v warm fall, temps are already cooling down. Maybe I’m being ~a little bit dramatic~ but I can no longer take on the night without a jacket. It’s getting brick and although I’m sick of wearing the same old denim jacket, I’m not quite ready to sweat profusely in wear leather jackets, either. Layering up doesn’t have to be a major buzzkill or make you look like a prude, though. You can still look hot and stay warm, because risking your health for your outfit is totally valid not okay. If you look hard enough, or just take my fucking advice, you can find the most perf lightweight jackets that take you from work to your 5:01pm blackout. Or, you can simply elevate a Sunday walk of shame outfit and die on the couch lounge in the comfiest hangover clothes. Either way, we can only go up from here, so start prepping for chilly fall nights you can def still look good af for.

1. LA Made Reed Duster Cardi

A duster jacket is the boss-ass bitch of all jackets. They kinda remind me of a cape, but like, a sexy cape. It’s business-y, warm, and v comfy for striding in the streets. Yes, comfy and warm *can* be in the same sentence as business-y. Tell your HR rep to suck it. You can totally dress this up with a really good heel or keep it casual with a sexy boot. Although this one comes in black (bless), you’ll have one in every color by the time October rolls around.

2. Free People Double Weave Denim Jacket

I might be biased because I have one, but I’m also considerate enough to share my goodies with you. Let me just say, this is the comfiest shit ever. It’s a denim jacket and a hoodie in one. Any time I feel like channeling my inner Damian Leigh, I just pull my hood up and throw on my biggest shades and stifle the urge to yell, “She doesn’t even go here!” It’s also trendy enough to wear with a dress and your go-to little black boot. You can totes get away with wearing this when you drag your boyfriend to go apple picking, or when you go on your sorority’s Instagram shoot field trip to a pumpkin patch.

3. Alpha Industries L2B Flight Jacket

This is the inconspicuous celeb style we all aspire to have. Olive green is always huge for fall, so let anyone tell you it’s fugly. This is actually a cold weather jacket so you can justify the price by telling yourself you’ll wear it more than just the awkward one week span between summer and fall. The jacket is v lightweight but it blocks out the chill and is like, water resistant??? Fucking grool. Easily throw it over a mini skirt or slutty tight dress for a night out.

4. Polie Dark Grey Pu Biker Jacket

This is basically a black leather jacket but like, in gray (fucking obviously) which makes it sooo much better. It’s not yet basic so you might as well grab it and be the trendsetter. This one is soft, breathable, and obviously goes with literally anything—from your overly worn leggings to a casual T-shirt and mini skirt.

5. Velvet By Graham & Spencer Floran Crochet Cardigan

This may look like your grandma’s sweater, but that’s the whole principle of fall and stocking up on cardigans that end up looking the same. The fringe detailing is modern, laid-back, and says, “I’m not trying hard at all, but this cardigan is over $100.” It’s honestly not the warmest, but if you sweat even in a blizzard under any coat (uh, same), this is good enough to just throw over for dinner or when hopping a bar strip. Since it’s neutral, contrast with something dark (aka probs most things in your closet) or layer up with a light-colored scarf.
