Winter Must Have: The Layering Sweater

I always get super excited to start wearing sweaters again, and then quickly become bored when I realize sweaters are basically just a long-sleeved shirts. There’s not all that much a person can do with them besides layer, and it’s all too easy to just throw one on with skinny jeans and go. So this week I’m going to style a sweater 3 ways, starting today with this awesome “boyfriend-y” sweater (i.e. it’s relaxed and a little too big for me) which is perfect for layering.

I found this sweater at a thrift store in Maine over the summer and it’s the perfect neutral color for wearing with anything. So my definition of anything is this pretty party dress that I’ve styled several times before in a more professional kind of way. Throw a casual sweater over your party dress and viola! You’ve got yourself a chic dressy-casual outfit for wearing out in the winter! You can dress it up or down with accessories, and as you can see I’ve taken it the more casual route with my ankle boots and tights.

Stay tuned for more sweater styling this week! Oh and I’ve created an easy way to purchase styling gift cards this year! Just click here. See? Easy.
