We have officially entered SWEATER WEATHER. I KNOW I’m not the only one excited at the thought of cozy sweaters and becoming some type of sweater/blanket burrito.
Its been an awaited season and the sweater temptation is the air. Last week, Target had a buy one, get one 50% off on all of their sweaters. I mean, I didn’t want to lose money, so I had to take advantage of the sale. You know what is difficult? Finding a sweater that doesn’t look exactly like the ones you already own.
Today we’re sharing some sweater inspiration that will create diversity in your closet, as well as find the perfect sweater for four common occasions, such as ‘Leave Me Alone’.
IMPORTANT NOTE: all of these come in different color options. Clearly, I have a problem: I chose to only display orange and pink tones *shrug* I’m working on it, OK? Focus on the styles…
The Work Appropriate Sweater
Opt for a more fitted sweater with a bold sleeve. Ruffled and bell sleeves are really on trend AND add some flare to any look. Elegant, somewhat understated and adds fun to your wardrobe.
The Casual Weekend Sweater
Add a pop of color for the weekend. I’m really in love with reds and burnt oranges for fall. Also have some fun with your sleeves. A puff or bishop sleeve adds an element of fun. A New Day at Target has a gorgeous sweater thats red with a puff sleeve (snagged it during the sweater sale) I’ll share a link once its up online, because its a beauty.
The ‘Leave Me Alone’ Sweater
Oversized/roomie with a big neck. This sweater is cozy and for your laziest of days (or after those long work days). Retreat into comfort and run away from bras.
The ‘Its Too Hot, But I Still Want to Wear a Sweater’ Sweater
If it truly is too warm to wear a sweater, but you still want to, because FALL- go for a cardigan (pull overs WILL seal all the warmth in and you’ll be disappointed). A chunky cardigan will capture the fall essence we all know and love, while the openness will let your breathe. Sweater wearing technique for warm days: let the cardigan slide/hang off your shoulders for a more relaxed, still cute look (but really you’re just getting some much needed air flow).
Key take aways: switch up colors, textures and patterns to avoid a closet full of the same sweater. Don’t forget about those fun sleeves!
