White and black striped sweater-How I styled it
Over the weekend, we went downtown to check Christmas decoration. Yes, It feels like Christmas everywhere in here. So I choose to go with my comfort black and white striped sweater. The sweater is perfect for off-duty style. First, It has a relaxed fit, emphasized by the drop shoulder sleeves. Second, the hem is rounded and paired well with almost everything over or tucked in. I got it in a steal deal from Nordstrom; the brand is French Connection. While they are out of it, Belk and Asos still have this cozy sweater in stock. Besides the style goes well with everyday casual or chic look to work or dine out with friends.
Paired with jeans
One of the easiest and maybe the comfiest forms of wearing a striped sweater is pairing it with a pair of jeans. I got my jeans from Zara a year ago as a break from all the cut off ripped jeans style. The jeans are a basic legging/jogging with stretchy fabric. Great for Saturday get-out day. Sadly, We do not have Zara in here. However, I snagged these adorable jeans instore on my last trip to Chicago. I am so happy with this purchase because I loved how thick yet easy to move-in all day in these jeans. I wish I snagged more than one from them. Now Zara got into my radar when it comes to jeans.
My only complaint and I think it was my fault is that these jeans are too long on me. I didn’t find shorter jeans in stock, So I decide to get them anyway.
Completed with accessory
I cannot go out without adding the right accessory. This time I opted for my black and white striped sweater with leather-like wide black buckle belt. I got the belt a few years ago from a local store in an intention to wear it with my dresses. Yet, in recent years I have been loving it with tops and sweaters. So I made a knot and moved it to the back to add flattering definition to my sweater. I completed the look with combat boots I got from my last trip to Europe. I even styled with my what to wear with faux leather pants. The boots are comfortable and have a fur lining to keep my feet warm this winter. I usually buy combat boots from DSW. They have great combat boots in here.
