STYLE GURU STYLE: Slouchy Sweater Weather

September 18th, 2015 at 2:05am

It’s officially fall, and that means that it is finally sweater weather! Knits are a cozy style staple that no fall wardrobe is complete without. My closet is filled to the brim with sweaters of every shape, size and color. I personally love to pair a great knit top with distressed, or skinny jeans and a stylish pair of booties!

Upon being inspired by Madewell’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear look book, I combined a slouchy sweater with a pair of light wash boyfriends jeans to create a casual fall ensemble. This season Madewell’s runway looks focused on long, oversized sweaters, as well as light denim paired with an occasional plaid piece. Instead of adding a pop of plaid to my look, I decided to throw in a touch of my personal style and flare with a trendy leopard clutch and simple gold jewelry accents.

My outfit also included a pair of taupe Dolce Vita open-toed booties. These booties are a personal favorite of mine because they are a great transitional piece from season to season. They can be worn in both the fall and spring! These booties also boast stylish strappy details along the sides. Unfortunately, my Dolce Vita booties are no longer available! However, Jeffrey Campbell makes a great alternative.

When it comes to fashion, there are very few trends that will never go out of style. Denim is unquestionably one trend that will remain timeless. You can’t go wrong with a basic dark wash skinny jean from 7 for All Mankind. However, if you are looking to add a little edge to your outfit, One Teaspoon is the brand for you! Stay on trend with a pair of light wash boyfriend jeans similar to the pair I’m showcasing in my look!

Get excited for sweater weather this summer by breaking out your favorite cozy sweaters and favorite skinny jeans!
