Sweater week continues with a mid-week date outfit because sweaters can go on dates too! I know a bulky knit isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of something sexy to wear, but (as I said in this week’s style tipsheet) you can make your bulkier sweaters dressier by emphasizing the waist, either by belting them if they’re long, or by wearing a form-fitting skirt underneath. So that’s what I did here. I took my sexiest printed pencil skirt and paired it with a slouchy knit, tights, and some clunky boots. The boots and sweater balance each other out and dial the skirt back a few notches, which is great if you are going on a date with someone you don’t know too well yet, or if you’re just really chilly.
