Many of us here at Gilt absolutely adore Ash Rain + Oak’s contemporary, casual chic knits. Based in Los Angeles, A+RO uses luxe yarn blends to create cutting-edge iterations of classic clothing designs. Standard long-draped, crewneck, and pullover sweaters receive a style boost from netting, artwork, edgy patterns, and bold hues ranging from fuchsia to lemon. Ash Rain + Oak's understated essentials have become favorites among the celeb set, including Jessica Simpson, Leighton Meester (who owns A+RO’s Adele sweater), Rashida Jones, and Kristen Stewart.
