I hate boring sweaters. It’s true that everyone needs a black, v-neck, cashmere sweater, but beyond that, I try to steer clear of boring crewnecks and turtlenecks and v-necks. Because, as I mentioned last week, a sweater and black pants does not an outfit make. I think the camel-colored J.Crew sweater from this morning is perfect for Fall without being too boring or too trendy.
Also, let me apologize in advance, I’m coming down with a cold. So there’s a little less commentary than usual since I went to bed at 10PM.
I love a hooded sweater or sweatshirt under a blazer. It’s casual, but it’s pulled together also. This fantastic celadon tweed blazer is the perfect compliment to the heathered-camel sweater. Add a fun flat shoe, a coordinating bag in dark green and a pair of rose gold studs and you’re all set.
Sweaters look great when wore over pleated skirts. Here, I paired a printed Tucker skirt with knee high boots for a classic, breezy Fall look.
I added a pair of high-heeled boots to finish off the look. You can wear tights if you want, but the skirt is more than long enough to cover your knees. Roll up the sleeves, throw on some fun bangles and grab a colored purse (this one is navy) to complete the ensemble.
This sweater is a great piece to throw on for a Saturday morning strolling the shops. Grab a pair of skinny jeans and a fun buckled boot for the classic Fall outfit. I added a bronze bag to make it a bit more interesting and finished it off with a cool, enamel bangle. Put your hair in a high bun, put on your aviators and shop in style.
