Take 40% off select items at LOFT
For a limited time (no word on when it ends) our friends at LOFT are offering 40% off “pre-sale” picks from their current line up with code NOW40 at checkout. That’s a pretty substantial savings. And shipping is a flat $8.95 until you hit $125 in your cart, then it’s free. I usually have pretty good luck at LOFT with fit, although I always have to size down on tops (I’m usually a medium, but at LOFT I wear small or even extra small). Pants I sometimes size down in, sometimes they are spot on, and sometimes they just don’t work. I’m always happy with the quality of the clothing though, especially when it comes to sales like this.
Plaid Bubble Hem Blouse – $35.70 ($59.50)
This bubble hem blouse is a great piece to pair with jewel tone pants. The plaid print makes it appropriate for cold weather wear, and the material is light enough that it can be comfortably layered underneath a cardigan. Available in petite sizes, and also available in the much brighter “Vivacious Red”.
Ankle pants, and capris, don’t usually tend to visually lengthen legs, but LOFT claims these are tailored for a “leg lengthening look”. The cut is leaner, but they don’t really strike me as lengthening? Regardless, they are cute, and the color they are offered in is a great one for the season. You could pair that Plaid Bubble Hem Blouse with these for a perfect fall look. Available in regular and petite.
I’ve been eyeing up this sweater jacket for a while now, waiting for it to appear at my local LOFT. A very cute alternative to just wearing a sweater. It’s 100% cotton, so won’t be the warmest thing in the world, but it’s perfect for cooler fall days, or as a jacket to wear in the office. You know, when it’s the middle of winter but for some reason the air is still on?
Textural Sweater Skirt – $35.70 ($59.50)
A sweater for your bottom half! Well, at least some of it. This skirt is comprised of 50% merino wool for warmth (50% acrylic). It’s a great staple to add to your fall/winter wardrobe. Depending on what you pair it with, you can get away with wearing it more than once a week. All reviews are glowing.
Tuck Stitch Vest – $41.70 ($69.50)
This cozy but stylish vest will add some core warmth when needed, without the bulk of a down vest. The only drawback is that it doesn’t close. The shawl collar cashes in on a hot trend right now, and has the added benefit of keeping cold air off your neck. Also available in “Dark Charcoal”.
Buyer beware, this sweater is most likely going to fit big. It’s called a “poncho” sweater, and poncho’s are not a close fitting item of clothing. You can always belt this sweater, or if you like a loose and flowing fit this might just be your thing. In my case, I would probably size down. LOFT shirt and sweaters on average run fairly large on my petite but curvy frame. You can layer this sweater; throw it on over a long sleeve scoop neck tee for added warmth.
What a fun wool blended tweed trouser for fall! It’s available in both regular and petite lengths, so hopefully you wouldn’t need to worry about any tailoring. The blended colors in the tweed create a really lovely mossy green hue. Perfect business causal wear.
This coat is probably one of the best deals of the sale. Lot’s of great reviews on it. I just love the way it pops against the models yellow pants. It’s a little bit sailor, a little bit Parisian, and a lot of fun. Credit to LOFT for making being warm very stylish!
If you want to get the look with the striped jacket from above, these cords in yellow should help. The slim cut and ankle length give this corduroy pant a modern edge. The rise of the waist looks pretty low. These will look best on slender frames. Don’t worry curvy girls, there are plenty more cords out there.
From afar this sweater looks like it might be thicker, but the up-close shows that you’ll need a camisole underneath to provide better coverage. There is metallic silver thread throughout the sweater, giving it a bit of glitz. Great sweater to dress up or dress down.
