I would love to dress in skirts, dresses and high heels every day. At least that’s what I think now. If I was required to do it, I would probably be craving jeans and flats.
But the truth is I rarely get an opportunity to dress up (when I do, I seize it!) Ninety percent of the time if you saw me out on the street, I’d be wearing jeans and a sweater in winter, and shorts, t-shirt and flip flops in summer (or workout clothes.)
So I try to make myself excited about my daily uniform by wearing pieces with interesting details and by mixing colors and textures. Complementing an outfit with a couple of pieces of jewelry is also an easy way to elevate it from the mundane.
This sweater is a perfect example of an otherwise simple piece turned special because of the lace up neckline and cuffs. I would put this together with regular jeans (I wore it with white jeans here) but for this outfit I paired it with my faux leather leggings.
The leather pairing is less expected than the jeans and it makes the sweater stand out a little more.
At the same time, throwing a cream colored sweater over the leather pants makes them less edgy and more every day appropriate.
I got the sweater from a new to me online retailer. The website is SheIn and it’s a good place for trendy styles at affordable prices. I have included their current promotion below.
