Try On Haul With January’s New Arrivals From Talbots

I know many of you stocked up on a lot of winter styles from The Talbots Red-Hanger Sale. Even though I had already bought a lot of things, I still managed to find a few more things. I saw January’s New Arrivals From Talbots had launched, so I ran by to do a quick Try On haul for you. I did this as a mix-and-match try-on, and I tried to show how to wear each item in multiple ways.

I’m going to give you my measurements so you can have an idea of how things fit. Everything I tried on fit me great, except the last pair of jeans. I recommend sizing down in those.

I’m 5’6″ tall and weigh 155 lbs. In Talbot’s clothing, I usually wear a size 8 in pants and jeans, a 10 or a medium in tops and sweaters, a 10 or a large in jackets, and a 12 in dresses.

I love this crisp button-up shirt with a slightly relaxed look. It is long enough to wear with leggings, but it also looks great tied in the front. The wide-leg jeans are a pair that can be dressed up or down, and they had to come home with me.

I added this striped cable-knit coatigan and liked how it looked with the striped shirt. This is a fairly heavy coatigan, so if you live in a warm climate, this might not be for you. I love the toggle closures, which give it a nautical vibe.

I kept on the wide-leg jeans but changed to a mockneck sweater. I think the white stripes make this sweater stand out. It looks great with the white jeans.

However, the sweater looks equally as good with a pair of jeans. This pair of jeans has a unique stripe down the sides of the jeans.

I kept on the jeans and added a button-up shirt in a blue and orange tile print. Blue and orange are a great combination, and this print is extremely pretty.

Even though I like the button-up shirt by itself, it looks extraordinary with the clementine cardigan.

I switched prints and chose to wear a paisley green print shirt with slim jeans and a pistachio green cardigan. Lime green is a trending color this year, and this is a fantastic way to wear it.

It is a trend to wear a cardigan buttoned, and adding this multi-stripe scarf adds a tiny bit of color to the look. The scarf’s colors are perfect for spring, and I like the soft look.

The scoop neck curved hem tee is a perfect white tee. It isn’t see-through, and it fits great. I bought it in white and navy and sized up to a large in both. I don’t like my tees to fit tight and show all lumps and bumps. The orange, blue, and white ruana is cute and creates a perfect casual look. Plus, it adds a little warmth, but isn’t too hot.

I’d probably wear this pair of stretch joggers for a casual day at home. I’ve noticed that I’m reaching for joggers more and more over leggings these days, and this pair feels great.

This knit jacket took a casual jogger and tee outfit and made it look chic. I love the simple and elegant look, which is hard to do with a pair of joggers.

Look how nice this jacket looks zipped! I love the dark color of these jeans, but since it is a relaxed fit, I should have sized down to a size 6. The jeans still look great, but the waist is way too big on me.

PLACED HEARTS MOCKNECK PULLOVER ( Medium) || EVERYDAY RELAXED JEANS – SUNDOWN WASH (8) – Very Relaxed, I’m going to size down.

My last outfit is with the same pair of jeans and a heart pullover sweater. The navy and Fuschia hearts sweater would be great for Valentine’s Day, but you could wear it anytime.

    for all your great ideas.
    Cathy A

  2. Great outfit ideas. I love the black joggers on you.
    Thank you for my Amazon gift card. You are amazing and I am honored.
    (Thinking I should go buy a lottery ticket soon!!)

  3. Everything looks great on you, especially when your a size 6/8. It motivates me to try to lose some weight so they can look and fit better.

  4. I absolutely loved this! You looked fabulous in all outfits. I wish a petite person would do this type of posting. I am 4’11” and age 50 has been in my tail lights for quite a few years! Seeing the Talbots new styles and trends is very helpful at any age!

    1. Hi Constance!
      No need in this case, because Talbots has Petite sizes in most of their styles. They also have Woman Petite, which is difficult to find. (I am not affiliated with the brand)

  5. OMG love all of these beautiful clothes!! Thank you for sharing these great styles!! Hope that you are having a great Saturday!!

  6. Love your recent Talbot’s haul. I especially like the boyfriend striped shirt, the toggle coatigan, and the mock neck sweater. These would be perfect for the spring weather here in New England. I think a shopping spree is in my future!

  7. I didn’t want the post to end! Thank you Tanya for taking the time to show everything you did 🙂 I sure hope that black and white zippered jacket came home with you!

  8. Everyone of these outfits are go doggone cute and look great on you. How did you leave the store without every single piece? The only thing missing are what shoes to wear?

  9. Tania, you look great in all those outfits. Love the black and white striped shirt tied in front on you. You do so well picking out pieces that look great together. My 60th birthday is in Feb and my goal weight is 155 lbs. I know why…..you look great!
    Thanks for the Bible verses. God is Great! Jesus is the only way of Salvation!

  10. I love the boyfriend shirt and toggle coat. I like the vertical stripes shirt as I think they have a tendency to make me not look so blocky. I am considering the toggle after seeing it on you. I love navy and it would be a great addition to my jacket/coat selections. You always choose the exact things I like from Talbots, which is a major reason I like seeing your Talbot purchases.

  11. Love it all, and you look great in everything, but I have to say: nothing beats black and white. Understated, yet bold. Timeless. Sophisticated. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t look stunning in simple black and white.

  12. The striped shirt, tied, with the white jeans looks fabulous. The print shirt with the green sweater, and print with the clementine sweater, wow!

    The best picture is Joe’s redesign of your living room!

  13. I’m impressed with your Abingdon golf course 😉

    I love all your outfits with my favs being the 3-piece white and black outfit, the black with white stripe sweater with both the white pants and the blue jeans, the outfit with the clementine sweater, and the T-shirt/jogging pants outfit. However, all your try-ones are very flattering on you.

    To Joe-happy putting ⛳️

  14. I have a question about half tucking your shirt in the front. When do you wear a belt and when do you not? I see it both ways and wonder how you decide. Looking forward to your explanation.

  15. I really liked your try-on post today. You showed several cute pieces and combinations. In your picture the joggers looked like they had a cuff, but in the link, they don’t show a cuff. Are they cuffed?

  16. Love all of these gonna do some serious shopping online today at home with the crud. Thanks for all your help and advice.

  17. Just love these try-on haul posts. I’m a cardigan gal so the beautiful pistachio and orange sweaters appeal to me. Will have to head to Talbots and try them on!

  18. I really like all your Talbots clothes today. I especially like that striped shirt and the white pants on you. Have a wonderful day.

  19. WOW , I Love Everything you tried on.
    Especially the striped shirt tied with the white pants and the Orange and Lime tops.!!! You knocked this one out of the Ballpark!!

  20. Tania, You must have the perfect shape for Talbots clothing because you look stunning in everything! Especially the black and white outfits…very classy!

  21. I loved everything you tried on today! I am loving the hair style and color you are doing too. It looks more silvery, which I love.

  22. I didn’t see a size reference for the white jacket. I looked it and we are similar in size. In fact, I love just about everything you modeled here!

  23. I love Talbots, anyway, but now I know where my next paycheck is going! 🤣 The sweaters with the printed button down and the sweater with the scarf: so pretty! You look great in all the outfits!

  24. Ditto Cindy’s comment below–you looked great in each of the Talbot’s outfits! I especially liked you in the clementine sweater with the blue and orange button up shirt. Talbot’s is my go to place to shop, and I am familiar with their latest, but you brought to my attention some pieces that I may have not have considered before.
    Thank you for all of the hard work that you do to present a blog every day. I love seeing what you’ve found and hearing about your life. Peace and blessings.

  26. I love all of it! Even though I can’t afford all of it it gives me trends to look for within my budget.

  27. You look great in all these outfits. I especially love the whimsical shirt with clementine sweater. Thanks for featuring Talbots again. Love their style and quality.

  28. Very pretty choices! Talbots always has classic pieces and sprinkles in trendy colors and styles for the season.
