    I adore Vince. Totally spot on with chic yet professional style recommendations, Chic in Academia! Vince is especially great b/c you’ll looked pulled together all day while being insanely cozy and comfortable. (I type this with great longing as I am wearing too-tight-around-the-belly tights and a too-cinched cinched-waist dress. Ack.)

    Hi, LE! Thanks so much for your feedback!! I really appreciate it!! I totally agree that Vince is amazing with regard to knitwear. I aim for style and comfort as well, and Vince does manage to accomplish both in most pieces of clothing they make. I must admit, on occasion, wearing too-tight-around-the-belly tights make the outfit; even when paired with a cozy Vince sweater. 😉 A girl’s just gotta do, what a girl’s gotta to make the outfit look its best!
