ALL IN THE DETAILS: Keep Calm And Sparkle On

It’s that time of year where dreary days and going to class start to become a drag. It can be difficult to keep up high spirits when the cold air and gray skies are forever hanging over our heads. It is also easy to slip into the habit of throwing on a pair of leggings and an oversized sweatshirt instead of sporting your usual stylish outfits. So how does one keep from letting the grey and cold get them down? The answer is simple: add a little sparkle to your life!

This Fashionista has decided that she is going to stand out from her dreary winter background! She is sporting a cream knit sweater with sparkly elbow patches from a small boutique. This amount of sparkle adds just enough shine to all of the wintery gray. She has decided to add a beautiful Van Cleef & Arpels necklace, which is the perfect addition to her fun sweater. This sweater is perfect to add a necklace or scarf because it is simple enough in the front.

The fun thing with the elbow patch style is there are so many different options! If sparkle isn’t your thing, you could go for a cute knit heart patch or you could go for a leather patch. These little patches are such a cute accent to any sweater, and because sweaters are normally a neutral color, they also add a pop of fun! Her black Michael Kors backpack is the perfect finishing touch to make her sparkly patches stand out!

Although these winter months can be a drag, adding cute details to your outfit can make the grey days a little brighter. You’d be surprised what a little sparkle in your life can do!

How To: Having a casual night out on the town with your friends? Pair an elbow patch sweater with a leather skater skirt and knee socks! This is a perfect blend of cute and casual!
