Fall Style: Shrunken and Tied

September 27, 2016


The easiest way to elevate a simple look is to find pieces that are somewhat classic, but have a modern twist.  This super soft sweater is the epitome of an updated take on a classic crew neck sweater.  The slightly shrunken cropped length combined with longer sleeves and eye-catching tied cuffs instantly brings a cool factor to any look.   The neutral marbled grey color will mix and match with most any wardrobe, making it a piece that is worth the investment.  Speaking of investing,  the cost per wear model is always how I determine if a piece is worth the splurge.  If I can put together countless outfits with the item and I will wear it often, then the cost per wear becomes low and the piece becomes a better investment than more less expensive pieces that are only worn a few times.  I can also see dressing this sweater up with a leather skirt with heels or pairing it with ripped jean shorts and sneakers come spring.  The possibilities are endless! One of my favorite places to seek out these updated classics is Nordstrom’s Contemporary department.
