If you think sweaters are just for lazy days, think again! I’m a firm believe that “cute” and “casual” are not mutually exclusive.
As an outfit repeater, I’m always searching for pieces that have mondo repeatability. One of those things for me is a sweater. They’re the perfect item to throw on with leggings for wearing around the house, or to dress up for an evening out.
Let me break down my look and show you how easy it is to make a sweater look cool!
The sweater I chose for this outfit is a favorite of mine that I thrifted. It works for street clothes because it’s got the perfect amount of slouch and a fun pattern to boot!
To play off the pattern, I added my leopard print jacket because leopard print goes with anything. I love the pattern mixing going on!
And lastly are a pair of boyfriend jeans that every cool girl should have in her closet. I rolled up the bottoms of mine for a few extra style points.
Put it all together with some comfy heels and a swipe of red lipstick and you have yourself one rad ensemble!
Next time you need a going-out look, why not reconsider your “frumpy” sweater?
