Hi everyone! Welcome to part two of “how to recycle a holiday sweater”. Yesterday we took this festive green sweater and turned it into a polished everyday work outfit. Now we’re going to make it a little edgier, just by changing out the accessories. Add a pretty-freaking-realistic faux leather jacket, studded oxfords (on sale right now!), a studded bag, and my favorite Warby Parker frames, and you’ve got a great city-chic alternative. Just a few little tweaks, that’s it!
Tomorrow we’re going boho glam for part three…. So excited!
Burgundy is the color of the season, so these chic little pants from J.Crew are the perfect pop of subtle color to enhance a black and white outfit. These are the newer “full-length” Minnie pant, that are cut a little longer and leaner, but still “look good on everyone” as J.Crew claims. They are pretty magical, in my opinion. And there’s just a little pop of Chanel, too… my favorite eyeglasses with the signature Chanel tweed arms. They always work flawlessly as a way to class things up 😉
And if you haven’t picked up a pair of metallic cap-toe pumps this season, you are missing out on a killer wardrobe staple. I attempted to wear plain black suede ones with this particular outfit, and it was so… boring. Then I put on the cap-toe ones, and it just worked. I wear these with jeans, pants, tights – they just add a tiny bit of edginess to each look. Love them!
…I also picked up a sweet burgundy leather jacket from the new Nordstrom Rack here in JAX, so there is more burgundy to come!
