Oh the weather outside is...ok well it might not be frightful yet, but the cool temps of fall are transitioning to the cooler temps of pre-winter. Yes, I just said "pre-winter" we haven't even reached Thanksgiving, so I cannot in good faith buy into the holiday spirit even though Nordstrom's is breaking out the red and green. All of that is beside the point, the important matter I need to address is how to can I pull off the blanket sweater trend that is about to take over?!? Sounds like it could be a whole lot of bulky business, but blanket and sweater also sound oh so bug in a rug snug...there has to be a way to make this cute!
The Cure: Wrap me up in warmth!
Choose one item that may be slightly heavier than the rest of your outfit in terms of shape and fabric, but make sure you aren't hiding under it. Balance a great blanket sweater like this fair isle cardigan with a body hugging long sleeve tee and gray denim jeggings. To maintain proper proportion throw on a cuffed boot like these gray suede spats from Naughty Monkey and add a great pendant necklace as an accent.
Side effects: Cozying up with someone special may heat things up faster than you think ;)
