Sweater Weather: Chunky Knits 2 Ways + Pink Basis GC Giveaway!
Well, this is one trend I am on board with- the chunky, cable knit, oversize sweater. Pink Basis so graciously gave me a gorgeous piece to style. If you haven't heard of them, they are an online boutique specializing in, well, affordable clothing that tends to gravitate towards the sexy side. The sweater I have on below is actually a dress, but it works PERFECTLY as a tunic. Covers your bootie without looking frumpy, and only costs $44.99, on sale for 45% off that price this week. Now, how to style it!
It might seem a little...oh, I don't know, anti-everyday-woman, but I look to the celebs a lot to see how they style outfits. Why? They often have stylists to whom they pay an inordinate deal of money to help them put looks together. Why not cop their style advice for free, compliments of the paparazzi?
For my first look, I took a page from Olivia Palermo's playbook. Oversize Sweater + Liquid Leather Leggings + Heels = Cozy x Sexy. (Yes, I am trying my hardest to not laugh while striking this pose. I am not exactly the clothing model type, but hey, I don't have Karlie Kloss banging down my door so I guess I'll do).
