The sweaters are out. Yep, watch out Pirates! These fuzzy friends have secured their temporary spot in our closets and in our hearts and I don’t know about you, but I’m ecstatic. With fall weather in our midst and winter weather slowly creeping up on us, you can’t avoid the need to go out and purchase this cozy companion. Their effortless ability to keep you cuddled up, and better yet on trend, gives sweaters the fantastical ability to transport the wearer onto the stylish streets of The Big Apple no matter where they’re located. So why wait to wear one?
This Fashionista was sporting the sweater trend in a way that keeps one breezy and dressed ideally for fall. With it’s sheer, almost netted appearance, a shawl type sweater-dress keeps you warm enough for a crisp day but cool enough for the hot East Carolina sunshine. Worn alongside sleek skinny jeans or casual leggings, a top or dress of this sort is definitely a do that won’t compromise your sleepy slouch in class. The exciting thing about sweater dresses is their versatility. If you purchase a fun print, like this to-die-for patterned piece from Madewell, you can easily wear it with leggings and loafers for a casual shopping day underneath NYC’s fall leaves, or dressed up with tights for a night out in Manhattan.
Although the sweater is definitely the stand out item in this Fashionista’s look, another aspect of her ensemble that I truly loved was her caramel tote bag. The neutral accent color of her handbag took her Big City ensemble to the next level. Caramel, as seen on this adorable Aldo item, is a must have hue for fall. Combined with rich browns or deep blacks, this chameleon color can’t seem to makeup it’s mind which side of the spectrum to choose. Bags are seen all over the Big Apple, and this large and in charge accessory is definitely suited to carry your dreams of city life.
So go out and select a sweater dress, slip into some flats, and grab your caramel bag. The city is calling your name, even if you’re over 500 miles way.
