A Message from Amanda:
Raise your hand if you love sweater weather! There’s nothing like cozying up in a chunky sweater and a warm coffee in hand on a crisp day. Dressed up or made casual, there are so many ways to style these versatile knits. I’m Amanda Burris, a fashion guru and self-taught designer. I approach fashion & interior design with a frugal eye, and I love sharing my awesome finds through my lifestyle blog, Type A Style. I’ve compiled some of my favorite looks for the cooler months—no need to drive to Louisville. All of the looks can be purchased at your favorite local boutiques right here in Elizabethtown!
I’m a proud wife of a local police officer and mommy to Maverick Dean and his fur-brother, Bentley. Follow along as I find my way through life, one outfit at a time!

Just because it’s sweater weather doesn’t mean skirts aren’t allowed. Stay cozy on top while showing a little leg with a fun, tweed skirt. Don’t forget to pair with trendy booties or knee-high boots for a flirty look, perfect for date night, holiday events, or while spending time with the girls.
Sweaters don’t have to be oversized and boring. I love finding cozy options that have variation in materials- like this hunter-green top; it’s like a sweater and a blouse had a baby! This fitted look goes perfectly with a pair of wide-leg, flare jeans. This denim fit is back, and it’s thankfully here to stay.
That Cute Little Shop
Just because summer is in the rear-view doesn’t mean colors have to be! I love bringing pops of color into my fall and winter wardrobe. I dressed up this floral sweater with the most groovy purple pants, making for a trendy and dressy outfit that is ready for low temperatures.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Cozy up with a turtleneck sweater tucked-in to a mini skirt paired with tall boots. This Mud Pie plaid skirt is the ultimate piece to wear for your family Christmas card photos or even to a Christmas party. It is flattering,
fun, and festive!
Walker Lane Boutique
Dress up some distressed jeans with a fun cardigan. I love pairing silk and lace camis with cardigans during these cold months. It is a great way to add pops of colors and textures while staying cozy. And don’t forget to add some leopard with a clutch or handbag for a trendy vibe.
Raiment + Boon
I live for staple pieces. And one of those items that every girl needs in their closet is a camel cardigan. It pairs with everything and makes for the chicest style. Add a wide-brim fedora hat for the most stylish look. I’ll be wearing this outfit on repeat all season long.
What is great about sweaters is that any size is a great size! I love wearing oversized sweaters—not only are they comfy, but they look great off the shoulder with a colorful bralette. They pair well with jeans with the front casually tucked-in or with leggings when worn as a tunic.
Take a simple cardigan to the next level with a fun patterned dress. I love wearing flowy dresses in the fall, especially when paired with booties and statement earrings. This look is perfect for a casual lunch date or even a day at the pumpkin patch.
To The Nines
Wrap me in a poncho all day long! This reversible poncho is the perfect addition to a simple dress and booties. Looking for a more casual option for a cool night by the bonfire? Dress it down with leggings and a plain tee for a casual, cozy look.
