MY TOP PICKS FROM THE JENNI KAYNE SALE

09.02.21

It’s no secret that one of my favourite brands of 2021 is Jenni Kayne. Everything this designer creates has a Californian nonchalance to it, and what’s not to love about everyday essentials designed with functionality, quality, and effortless wearability infused into every detail?

I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with the brand on a couple of occasions this year, which has given me a chance to try out a wide range of the different styles offered. You’ve likely noticed from the Style Journal and lots of other posts, that they’re some of my favourite pieces in my closet. With a rare site-wide sale happening now through this weekend, I thought it may be helpful to quickly cover the styles I’ve tried and loved, and share a few that are on my radar.

THE COCOON CARDIGAN

(Use FRESHSTART for 20% OFF through 9/6 or LEE15 for 15% OFF any time)


#1 on my list has to be the cult favourite Cocoon Cardigan. It’s a fan favourite for a reason and until you’ve tried it, it’s hard to fully appreciate its magic. I’m wearing one as I type this!

I covered all the details about this piece in my Cocoon Cardigan Review and have since had several readers share their love for it too. One reader wrote:

“Just wanted to say a quick thanks for your thorough review of the Jenni Kayne cocoon cardigan—it was so helpful! My charcoal version arrived yesterday (I used your code) and I’m obsessed! Like you said, it eclipses all other sweaters and I’m planning to live in it this fall.”

I have this style in three colours and I wear one at some point every single day.

  • Oatmeal Cashmere – Perfect light neutral that goes with everything.
  • Charcoal Cashmere – Beautiful deep grey, that’s almost black, but flecks of lighter grey soften it (and help hide lint and pet fur).
  • Ivory Alpaca – So chunky, so cozy, so light! This one is definitely more on the voluminous side as the yarn is inherently fluffy compared to cashmere.

SIZE NOTE: This cardigan has been designed with a very generous fit. I typically wear a small or medium in knitwear and I sized down to an XS in all the Cocoon Cardigans I have. They still have that gorgeous slouchiness, with lots of room to layer. The size range on the Cashmere Cocoon is from XXS through to 3X.

ON MY RADAR The Cable Knit in Light Grey and The Cotton Cocoon in Sage Green.




THE LOUNGE JOGGER

(Use FRESHSTART for 20% OFF through 9/6 or LEE15 for 15% OFF any time)


This next favourite, The Lounge Jogger, has been a surprise hero all summer long. I reach for these soft, cozy joggers whenever the temps dip and they’re truly the perfect weekend pant. I pair mine with a cotton tee, the oatmeal cocoon cardigan and shearling clogs for a super luxurious lounge set.

FIT NOTE: I have the size Small. For a more relaxed fit, you may consider going a size up if you want a more slouchy look.

CARE NOTE: It says Dry Clean Only on the website but I took a chance and washed mine on delicate with cold water and hand dry and they come out just fine every time.




THE EVERYDAY SWEATER

(Use FRESHSTART for 20% OFF through 9/6 or LEE15 for 15% OFF any time)


This classic crewneck is budget-friendly and true to it’s name. I like to layer the Everyday Sweater over a fitted tee or bodysuit with comfy jeans and a pair of slides or sneakers now but I’ll pair it with chunky boots and a wool coat when it gets chillier.

I love the slightly longer back detail and the rolled and ribbed cuffs, neckline and hem give it just enough interest to feel elevated.

I have it in Ivory but it comes in 7 beautiful neutrals. Taupe is a beauty!




SLIPPERS AND SLIDES

(Use FRESHSTART for 20% OFF through 9/6 or LEE15 for 15% OFF any time)


Jenni Kayne is well known for her quintessential footwear staple, The Suede Mule, which I just recently reviewed here. They’re truly timeless and versatile enough to go with just about anything from a tailored suit, to flouncy dress, to a sweat set.

All summer long I’ve been wearing The Leather Strap Sandal, an ultra minimal option that goes with everything and feels a little more polished than a flip flop.

As the weather cools you’ll find me sliding into the coziest pair of shoes I own, which are none other than The Shearling Lined Moc Clog. These are the ultimate loungewear capsule indulgence but every bit as amazing as I’d imagined.

SIZE NOTE: I wear a US7 and have the 37 in the mules and slides but went for a 38 in the clogs so I can wear a sock in the winter. I have a narrow foot and find that JK footwear fits my foot very well.

ON MY RADAR: The Suede Canyon Boot and the Shearling Lined Crossover Sandal.



Style Bee Brown Tones For Spring

THE FISHERMAN HOODIE


The Fisherman Hoodie has been a Style Bee reader favourite (and personal favourite) ever since I shared it as part of my Timeless Comfy 10×10 in February. Paired with jeans or joggers it’s the ideal answer to a sophisticated sweatshirt. I love wearing it front tucked into high rise denim, loose over a slip dress or side tucked into my joggers.

FIT NOTE: I took my usual size in this style and it has a generous fit, which makes it super easy to wear as a layer over long sleeves.



BASIC & SLIM TEES

(Use FRESHSTART for 20% OFF through 9/6 or LEE15 for 15% OFF any time)


Whenever I’m given the chance to test out a brands signature basic tees I can’t help but give them a go. The Basic Tee and Slim Tee are two that I’ve been wearing over the summer and they both have a vintage feel with a contemporary shape.

The Cotton Basic Tee – I love the easy fit of this tee and the generous short sleeves, which give it a borrowed-from-the-boys feel. I have the Sage Green, which is currently sold out but black, white and cream are in stock. Runs large, so opt for a size down unless you’re going for a very relaxed fit.

The Cotton Slim Tee – I have it in Cream (shown above with the joggers), which is a lovely tone that adds a bit of dimension to a light neutral look. Runs true to size.

Other basics on my radar – The Layering Turtleneck and Hudson Crewneck.

Hopefully, this post will be helpful if you’ve been considering adding any Jenni Kayne pieces to your closet. I’m so thrilled to have been able to add some JK to my closet and can attest that they’re the caliber of forever staples that will easily carry you through many different seasons in life.

    Fun post! I just bought the cotton cabin sweater today. My daughter has one and when I tried it on, I just knew I had to have one for myself. She loves their everyday sweaters too but I need v necks. Think I’ll be keeping my eye on the cocoon cardigan too. Love the shape.
