WHAT TO WEAR: Weekend Wear

Weekend days are the time for relaxing, hanging out with friends and (hopefully) catching up on some of that reading. Especially in the winter, I just want to be cozy. This Fashionista’s open cardigan is the answer to your winter style woes. It’s comfy, warm and oh-so-stylish. Wearing an oversized cardigan is like wrapping up in an actual blanket, only it’s an acceptable form of winter wear.

This outfit could take you straight from brunch with friends to the library to study. It’s comfy yet on-trend and stylish. Bright sweaters are a great statement piece to add to your slew of basic black and gray pullovers.

This Fashionista sports a printed open cardigan with a simple white T-shirt and leggings. The cardigan is the statement piece of the outfit because it’s printed and colorful. A bright sweater stands out in a sea of neutrals during the winter months. When choosing a bold piece like this sweater, it’s best to stick to basics for the rest of your outfit, like the leggings and T-shirt.

Combat boots, a chunky watch and some delicate rings finish off the look. The combat boots add edge, but are still neutral enough not to compete with the bold sweater. The pretty silver rings are also quite simple. Lastly, the chunky black watch is the one statement accessory, but it’s also in a neutral hue.

One Simple Change: If the weather gets colder, add a chunky infinity scarf for an extra layer of warmth. Make sure the scarf is a neutral color to balance out the bright sweater.
