Picture this: It’s cold in the morning when you leave the house so you grab your jacket only to get hot AF later in the day. You carry your jacket around with you secretly wishing you could ditch it. Well, ditch it! Instead, grab a sweater and wrap it around your shoulders.
This seemingly new way to wear a sweater will not only look polished but is practical as well. I love a trend that can be composed of what you already have on hand. Everything in this look I’ve had sitting in my closet for a while except the denim.
These Forever 21 denim are my newest addition to the Mom Jeans collection. I love the retro wash and the mid-rise waist. the ripped knees are not too over the top and they are cropped right at my ankle. These pants feel like sweats and I’m simply blown away that they were from Forever 21!
I think Spring is a great time to re-invent your closet and freshen up your look. As always, I’m big on only buying what you need rather than what you want. Place all the items that you wore for winter up and away and bring out your lighter clothes. Don’t forget to leave some lightweight sweaters and jackets for those chilly mornings!
I chose to showcase this woven sweater that reads “work in progress” because of the text. When I tie my sweater up close to my neck, it’s basically a scarf. And it really keeps me warm! I chose to casualize my whole ensemble by wearing my Converse all-stars instead of an oxford or loafer.
I personally think that a button up is best because if you wear your sweater, your collar can pop through but I would like to try this with a basic white tee too! I’m going to list the details below ↓
Lets start with denim ☺
All you need to complete this look:
✓a graphic sweater
✓a blouse with a collar
✓relaxed fit denim
You probably own all of the above. Try out a few different combos and wear what makes you feel best. I personally like carrying my sweater over my shoulders, un-tied. It’s less preppy and more casual. Shop similar finds below!
