And so it begins.... The over-eating, the constant traveling, the non-stop pace of having to be here, there and everywhere...And the icing on the proverbial way too big slice of Holiday Season cake? What the F to wear for it all.
I implore every single one of you to find a generously cut but structured (so it doesn't look like you are trying to be comfy- rather, it looks like you have great style) statement sweater. The one I have on is from ASOS, and it comes in several colors. Its that combo of an angled hem, scuba-material pleats and a chunky knit that has me like "whoa THIS is the sweater I am gonna wear with my leather high waisted pants at Thanksgiving because it will TOTALLY hide the fact that my fly will be undone 5 minutes into the meal", and for work meetings thereafter the exact same combo will be perfect- polished and fashion-y, yet seasonally appropriate and, most importantly, COMFORTABLE!
The sweater will most often be seen, however, with jeans (I just got these and they are amazing- and under $100) and high boots.
Here are 5 other statement sweaters that serve the same purpose (comfort disguised as fashion savvy)?
1- Faux Layered With Flounced Ruffle Hem is under $100, and can be broken up into separates.
2- This is oversized yet drapes in a body skimming way that doesn't add bulk- plus, those sleeves! And, that sparkle!
3- One of my favorite under-the-radar brands has this lace-tipped and super ladylike looker.
4- Shows off the one body part that ALWAYS looks good, the ultimate architectural, minimalist statement sweater.
5- IMHO, this sweater's hue is the most sophisticated spin on neutral- which makes the flounce factor that much more interesting.
