This or That January 16
Posted on January 15 2014
This Thursday's edition of This or That features a chartreuse sweater by Miss Selfridge for $30.00 and it's an additional 20% OFF. This winter it's been all about the glam sweatshirt, so I decided to show some love to the traditional winter staple, the sweater. This sweater is a great color, full of flair. The rounded neck, long sleeves and regular fit is feminine and functional.
The first look is a work-friendly look. I paired the sweater with a River Island Navy polka dot high waisted skirt for $36.00 at riverisland.com. The reason this cabel knit sweater works on the inside of this skirt is because it is a high waisted skirt, accessorized with a thick belt from forever 21. Match it with a chain link necklace and platform heels and a city chic day bag like this navy blue Michael Kors Hamiliton East West Leather Satchel Bag Tote. Wear your hair in a high ponytail bright lip with neutral eye makeup and your ready for work.
The next look is a cute casual look. I paired the sweater with patterns in this look. This McQueen Kaleidoscope Beetle Party Skirt at alexandermcqueen.com for $294.00 and a coordinating strip shirt. The reason these patterns work together is because the shirt is a neutral pattern. Patterns that do not seemingly match can match as long as they are tonal. The skirt is a little shorter, so to make it not look too short and distasteful pair it with a flat boot with an opaque tight. For a fun and flirty style wear your hair in loose wavy curls, neutral face with a bright lip. This is a great look for a shopping day, wear it to class, or to a casual lunch-date.
