Hi loves! HAPPY NEW YEAR! As the weather cools off here in LA (let’s face it, it’s never very cold here), I’ve been on a sweater outfit kick. My main goal is to switch up the way I style sweaters and be more adventurous with the outfit elements I style with them. I styled a sweater dress here on the blog some time ago and that was also a super fun twist on a sweater outfit. That’s classic and elegant but it’s fun to challenge myself and see what sticks! The other day I was roaming around Zara – which, by the way, I shouldn’t do here in the USA because it’s much cheaper back home in Europe! – and I picked out a few things to share with you today. So, read on for 4 Sweater Weather Ideas and leave me a comment below with your favorite look!
+ Sporty Knit & Midi Skirt
How gorgeous is this combination of elements? I really love the Zara knit sweater detail on the sleeves paired with the casual sweatshirt section. It’s like athleisure and winter got together and threw a fashion party! The Zara midi skirt was a leap of faith for me as that’s an item I usually would totally overlook on the rack. The sweater actually has a figure hugging crop section which I preferred to tuck into the skirt to accentuate the high waist and keep it more feminine!
+ Houndstooth Tweed & Pencil Skirt
Enter… elegance on heels. I confess that I’ve always thought ponchos were kind of useless. Oversized and too loose to ever keep you warm. This little Houndstooth Tweed top was a breath of fresh air. The material is nice and thick, the higher neck collar detail keeps me warm and the buttons ACTUALLY unbutton (not just a pretty embellishment) so you can wear this top more casually. I tucked the whole front section into a tiny pencil skirt (that I question whether fits me comfortably any more since having little Zoe) and love how it comes together! The cute faux glasses (Forever 21) give the outfit a retro spin which, again, I would never usually try but here’s to new fashion adventures! I have been absolutely LIVING for the white boot trend. I am definitely a pointy-toe boot kind of girl because it elongates the figure and just looks so chic!
+ Cozy Oversized Sweater with Bow Detail
This is the ultimate cozy sweater weather idea: turtle neck! I couldn’t resist the oversized comfort and the bow detail on the ends of the sleeves really caught my eye. I would wear this to a work meeting or a coffee date with girlfriends! This whole outfit is Zara – the white high-waisted jeans and suede midi heel pumps. Again, I don’t wear glasses but faux glasses have been so much fun to explore!
+ Ruffle Top & Ripped Jeans
This is definitely the most casual of all the outfits! I fell head over heels for this little ruffle detail top. It doesn’t fit into the sweater weather category per se but it is a really comfy and elegant every day option for running around town in. I dressed it down with some (very) ripped Boyfriend jeans and cuff cowgirl booties! Whip up your hair into a ponytail and you’re set!
And that’s the 4 Sweater Weather Ideas round up for you! Hope you enjoyed these looks and can draw some super fun inspiration in these colder months!
