The Cowl-Neck

There’s the v-neck, crew-neck, turtleneck, sweetheart and…cowl-neck? It’s not a term used too often, but we’re sure that you’ve seen it dozens of times before. The term comes from the Latin word “cowl” meaning “monk’s hood” (as a quick history lesson for you!). This shirt is one where the collar drapes in the front, almost giving a scarf-like look. If you’re into this kind of drapery, keep in mind that the style is best when worn by people with longer necks.

It’s also perfect for layering. Throwing a flowy cardigan, leather or jean jacket over it will give your outfit more depth and style. Depending on how the fabric is cut, the neckline could be pulled down to expose the shoulders, over one shoulder or, as more commonly worn, flowing down in the front. Depending on the occasion, this sweater can be worn with skirts, pants or leggings and can be paired with a light cami underneath if a jacket isn’t quite desired.

Overall, the look is stylish, feminine and cozy. We have our very own cowl-neck sweaters in our New Today section. Our Jane Cowl-necks are light, flowey and come in black and grey.

Houndstooth

Start your new year off right with a blast to the past. With a modernized twist, of course! If you’re looking for textures and pattern but don’t want to go tweed, try going houndstooth. These checkers are appealing to the eye and have the ability to be both casual and formal when pairing them with the right outfits. Throwing an item on with the black-and-white pattern can start off casual when pairing it with a white tee and blue jeans. This will give you and out-on-the-town look that you can feel confident in.

If you’re needing an outfit that’s a bit on the classy side, houndstooth is perfect for pencil skirts, wraps and dresses. Pair it with some red lipstick and shoes and you’ve got a show-stopping, head-turning runway look that’s sure to impress those you’re hanging with. If you’re a bit overwhelmed by how large the checkers can be, there’s always the option of getting the same houndstooth in a smaller check size, which can also be quite classy.

You don’t always have to stick with clothing, either. Just like most patterns, houndstooth is great for purses, belts and even shoes. If you’re looking for a piece of clothing with this fab style to call your own, check out our new Heidi Jacket. It has this great trend toned down with faux leather sleeves and trim that you’ll absolutely love. We know we do!

#ShoptoGive

During the Holiday season, people love to try and figure out more ways they can help out other people in their communities and around the world. Of course, there are many donations that can be given to organizations such as the Red Cross, WorldVision and many others that guarantee that your money and efforts go towards benefitting those who are less fortunate. Here at Kris&Kate, we like to join in on this season of giving and expand it to every other day of the year.

If you have ever purchased anything from our Kris&Kate website or if you have seen one of our many Twitter updates or Facebook posts, you know that when you shop with us, you have the opportunity to donate 10% of your purchase to WorldVision Micro. If you haven’t heard of this opportunity, let us explain for you. With every purchase made with us, 10% will go to WorldVision Micro to help out women worldwide in starting and supporting their own businesses. This money goes towards these women in the form of a loan which they will use to get their businesses up and running and can eventually pay off. Once the loan is paid, that money is then recycled and given to another woman. As Kris&Kate owner Christ Sandvik says, “It’s the gift that keeps on giving!”

For more information and stories on women who we’re helping through WorldVision Micro, check out our page on the WVM blog right here. To hear how Kris&Kate got involved with this organization to help other women, you can check out an interview with Christi Sandvik explaining how her faith inspired this mission here.

Sweater Obsessions

It’s completely impossible to go through the fall and winter seasons without new sweaters. Whether it be a thin, cardigan like sweater or full on wool, this article of clothing is a complete must have for surviving the chill of the cooler months while still staying fashionable. One of the biggest sweater trends for fall and winter is the “fuzzy sweater”. The texture of the furry material isn’t only warm but completely unique to the sight and people are soaking it up and getting in on the fun.

If you’re going for a different look than attack of the fuzz, the ombre design is another way to go. This craze can be seen anywhere from hair to clothing. On the mani-pedi and salon side, nails with a base color and some sparkles blending into the tips is one way to spice up your everyday appearance, while dip-dying your hair is another. In the clothing world, this just means that one color of an article of clothing blends to another color. No matter how you choose to sport this trend, you will for sure be struttin’ in style.

If you’re in need of some ombre in your life, then be sure to get your fix with our new and still in stock Angela cardigan. Our sweater obsession also continues on our new today and tops pages, so be sure to grab yours before they sell out!
