We have this idea that if our closet is full of clothing, then we have lots of outfit options. In theory, it makes sense. I have found with years of cleaning out closets that we don’t wear all of our clothing. Many of the items we don’t even really like to wear. So why not minimize the wardrobe and only buy items that you will wear. Only buy items that make you feel and look great in. My thinking is instead of having 10 decent sweaters, why not 3 or 4 amazing ones? A fabulous sweater will give you outfit options. I have mentioned before in my posts, that when you buy something make sure you can wear it at least 3 different ways. Below I’m showing how you can create different outfit options, while wearing the same sweater. I recently purchased this sweater from Aritzia. Check it out here.
sweater outfit option #1: layer with a turtleneck.
You know how much I love a turtleneck and especially in the winter, it just adds extra warmth. Wear with jeans, pants, pencil skirts, jogger style pants. So chic!
sweater outfit option #2: add a white blouse underneath the sweater.
I think this is a great way to create more options for work. Pair with a pencil skirt, trousers. Add a great belt and accessories to create more depth.
sweater outfit option #3: wrap around your shoulders like a shawl.
I especially love to wear it like this in the summer with a simple slip dress. Think outside your style box!
sweater outfit option #4: wear simply with dark denim and statement earrings.
I’m wearing this combo to an upcoming dinner with girlfriends. It’s simple and stylish. A great outfit can be that easy to create.
Over the years I have learned to wear the clothing I buy. I have figured out what I love to wear and what suits me. Take notice of what you constantly gravitate to in your closet. That is a good sign of what you enjoy wearing. Before I buy something, I think about the different ways I will wear it. It’s a whole new way to shop and wear your clothes.
this sweater will never fail me.
It will work with all of my bottoms and I can’t wait to show you how I will wear this sweater once the warmer weather arrives!
Remember what I told you…a fabulous sweater will give you outfit options.;)
