I'm 56, Live in NYC, and Love Wearing These Knitwear Outfits

We routinely turn to Elaine Davis's feed, @squarepearls, when we're on the hunt for effortless and chic style inspiration. Given that she resides in NYC, she's more or less an expert in crafting those outfits that are elevated yet easy for that on-the-go lifestyle. She also happens to be 56. And while age has nothing to do with what you should or shouldn't wear, her more experienced sartorial point of view is also particularly intriguing. With all that in mind, we thought we'd get in touch with her to uncover the specific knitwear outfits she's into at the moment. You know, to inspire those winter ensembles.

"Living in NYC, I get to dress for all four seasons, and my favorites are fall and winter," she told us. "There's nothing I love more than cozy knitwear that I can dress up or down." On that note, below you'll uncover six outfits featuring various knitwear silhouettes that Davis is loving, and that you might be interested in testing out as well. Keep scrolling for more—there's also a smattering of shopping picks sprinkled throughout.

"My oversize cable-knit pullovers are staples in my wardrobe and are both classic and trendy."

"A knit dress is one of my go-to looks during the fall and winter months. I find them super easy to dress up or down by changing my footwear and accessories."
