Milly Zandra Bow Sweater
What: Milly Zandra Bow Sweater

Why it's hot: Ladylike bow blouses are one of the key trends for fall, but you can only have so many traditional bow blouses in your wardrobe. Sometimes it's good to branch out just a little. This snappy sweater is a fun new take on the classic bow blouse look -- it serves the same sartorial purpose for Fall 2011, but without repeating the button-down blouse formula. With a 100% merino wool construction, this sweater will not only keep you plenty warm, it will also hold up nicely over the coming years.

What to wear it with: Let the Milly Bow Sweater take the place of a bow blouse in your Fall ensembles. I love how it is styled here with this tomato red midi skirt (which is a nice representation of both a big Fall color trend, and a big new silhouette trend). The look is simple, but still fun and on-trend.

For a more casual look pair this sweet sweater with jeans -- wide leg to capture the '70s-inspired look, skinny for a more French-chic vibe. For the casual day version of the ladylike look captured by the tomato red skirt, try adding a pair of cropped trousers in a bright color.
