There are a variety of pieces that are simple to wear and look great on everyone. The shawl sweater is one of them. Anyone can easily throw it on over a T-shirt or tank top, and it can transform a previously basic T-shirt-and-jeans outfit into something that looks put together. It’s the perfect item to have in your closet to easily transition your daytime school outfit into something you can wear at night.
This Fashionista’s ensemble consists of a pair of black H&M jeans, an American Apparel shirt and a shawl sweater from Nordstrom. Although there is not a great deal of color contrast in her outfit, it looks fantastic. The varying lengths at the front of the sweater provide a visual ambiguity that draws eyes to the outfit.
The shawl collar does not only exist for sweaters, but for vests and jackets as well. This Forever 21 vest has a shawl collar neckline with two decorative pockets. You can wear the vest open to show off whatever kind of shirt you have underneath or you can use the hidden hook in the front to look a little more formal. Wear it with a pair of shorts or a fun skirt and sandals for a different spring look.
This Koto shawl cardigan for men from Urban Outfitters is a perfect item to have when going to school in Boulder. This past week has been a prime example of continually changing weather. It’s hard enough figuring out what to wear, let alone having the weather change its mind every few hours. This sweater will get you through whatever you need: rain, sunshine or snow.
