Top Five: Sweaters

Monday, October 29, 2012

Hi, I'm Christina from Down and Out Chic and I'm guest posting here today for Tonya. I recently came to the conclusion that my wardrobe is terribly lacking when it comes to cold weather clothing. Sure I have jackets and a coat or two, but I really don't have any sweaters that I love. When Tonya asked me to guest post for her, I just knew it would be the perfect opportunity to find some sweaters to add to my Christmas "wish list" (B, I hope you're reading this). Staying true to my blog's theme, I've found five designs I'm loving this season, all for under $100!

1. Ruffled cardigan
I adore cardigans, as they're an essential layering item, but I'm wanting a cardigan with a twist.
The lovely ruffled neckline adds interest and this amazing mustard color is surprisingly easy to wear.

2. Sequins
I realize that sequined sweaters may look like a trend that only a 19 year old hipster could pull off, but I think a classy sequined sweater could look good on anyone at any age. The trick is pairing a piece like this with streamlined pieces and paired down accessories.

3. Oversized Sweater
Oversized sweaters are anything but frumpy when paired with leggings or skinny jeans. I realize this style is a nod to the 80's but it's a good nod and oh so comfortable.

4. Sweater Coat
I like the idea of an oversized, thick sweater coat I can cozy up in . These are perfect for spending chilly nights around a camp fire or for Saturday afternoon shopping. This particular one comes in a neutral color and has adorable cropped sleeves.

5. Sweater Dress
I adore dresses and wear them at least 4 days a week. I actually own this particular dress and I can tell you that it's comfy, flattering, and totally work appropriate.
