Sweater Weather in Full Effect

It’s sweater weather folks and we are heating things up with some cute knit looks perfect for fall!

From pull overs to cardigans to vests, knitwear at this time of year is always a requirement and lends itself to so many layering possibilities.

Yup, it’s the layering possibilities for me. I can add button down shirts or a turtleneck beneath this bad boy or wear it all on its own as I’ve done here. This ribbed V-neck vest is so soft and not itchy. This soft knit v-neck sweater is ribbed at the neck line and armholes and is made of polyester, acrylic, wool and elastane for little stretch.

I paired this patent faux leather skirt with this vest and I love the mix of textures. This chocolate coloured skirt is a pencil style and because I’m on the short side of the height spectrum is a midi in length on moi.

I completed my look by adding this oh so lovey cognac coloured vegan leather purse for ai Toronto. I really like the versatility of this bag because I can wear as a shoulder purse or switch out the strap and I’ve got myself a crossbody number.

So let me start by confessing that I have a lil bit of an obsession with sequins! There is just something about that sparkle that puts a smile on my face and makes me feel glamourous! Lucky for me, sequins are a big trend this fall!

That said, I put forward to you all my case as to why I think everyone needs to get sequins in their life!

  1. Sequins are not just for nighttime! – Y’all sequins are great for day and night. I love to rock a sequin skirt with a cute blazer or denim jacket or even as I did here with a cute chunky knit!

2. Sequins go with just about everything – As I touched on above, you can rock your fave sequin piece with anything from a tank top to leather pants or shirt!

3.You can rock sequins in all shapes sizes and pieces – If you are not really interested in wearing sequins in your clothing pieces, you can rock ‘em in your accessories baby! Scarves, purses, head bands and shoes! You have your pick of sparkly pieces!

4.Fits all seasons – Sequins are not limited to spring, summer, winter or fall, they work year round! Don’t limit yourself to a season, or just for ringing in the new year, extend the life of your sequin pieces by wearing them all year!

As you can see from my look, I decided to rock these wide leg sequin pants with a cropped knit sweater. Though I absolutely adore colour I went for a more neutral feel with this look.  I love this sweater because it gives me the versatility to play with the neckline wearing it off the shoulder or one should etc. 

Also for you ladies out there like me with a long torso, this look is great as the high-waisted pants give the illusion of longer legs, and shorter torso. This cropped sweater also lends the illusion of a shorter torso and shows a little skin. 

All in all this look has me feeling fall ready and on trend for the season!

And that’s the long & short of it!
