Styled by Renee: January 2021

  • PXG Full-Zip Wool Knit Sweater
  • Elyse Walker White V-neck
  • Prada leather booties
  • Vince Leather Leggings
  • Moreau Paris mustard tote
  • ‘Dare to Lead’, Brené Brown

Hello 2021! I don’t know if I have ever been more thankful to ring in a new year. To me, 2021 is a symbol of optimism and hope. The hardships of 2020 brought many changes for us all, personally and professionally. We altered the way we work, how we interact with one another and even how we dress.

This month’s Styled by Renee ensemble is inspired by the rise of athleisure. We’ve witnessed a shift in how active wear is worn and perceived. The look I put together for January blends comfort and luxury seamlessly. I’d wear this to run errands, work from home or grab lunch with a girlfriend.

The PXG Apparel Full-Zip Wool Knit Sweater is made of 100% black wool. It’s thick, ribbed fabric and optional high collar keeps you warm. Its back patch detailing, double zipper and hidden side pocket add unique design details to this cozy PXG favorite.

To layer, I chose a staple item from my closet; an Elyse Walker white V-neck t-shirt. This top is uber soft and fits perfectly. I paired it with my Vince Leather Leggings, which are surprisingly stretchy. They provide a sleek look, without sacrificing comfort.

I love these Prada booties. They easily pair with any outfit and are comfortable enough to wear all day long. They feel as comfortable as my favorite sneakers- but with a chic edge. And, for a pop of color, I grabbed my mustard Moreau Paris tote bag.

Since a new year is all about starting fresh, I wanted to include the book I am reading. It’s called Dare to Lead by Brene Brown. It’s about how courageous leadership comes in all forms and the skills (and vulnerability) required to master it.

Whatever 2020 brought and whatever 2021 brings, I hope you find health, happiness and passion- and, of course, do it with style.
