A couple of months ago I did a blog post giving you the new trends for fall 2014 and knits were one of the trends I was excited for. In case you didn’t read it, check it out here. Marc Jacobs debuted his fall 2014 collection in early 2014 during New York Fashion Week. Oversized sweaters, ribbed leggings, and knits strutted the runway preparing us all for what’s to come. I think this winter I’ll be all ready to kick the Polar Vortex in the butt, well at least with my warm ensembles.
One of my favorites from Marc Jacobs was the L/S Tweed V-Neck Sweater and the matching High Waisted Tweed Pants both valued at $1,200 each. Nicki Minaj hopped on the knit trend when she was spotted at an editorial shoot for Dazed & Confused Magazine. Her look for the magazine spread is different from what we’ve seen from Nicki, but the change looks good. Here’s a look at Ms. Minaj in Marc Jacobs Tweed two piece and view more pictures from the Dazed & Confused Magazine spread here.
Look For Less
If you love the look of this Marc Jacobs set but the price is a little steep, I know where you can find the similar look for a fraction of the cost. Yes, fashionistas you’ll love this find and the price will have you looking high-end on a low budget. Zara’s Ribbed V-Neck sweater and Ribbed Trousers had me all over it. The only difference it the color, Zara’s version comes in grey and sand (the pants come in grey only), but you can’t tell the difference between the two versions. The sweater and trousers are valued at $59.99 each, you can get your hands on your Zara version here.
