This year, I am teaming up with a group of amazing women dubbed the Thrift It! Clique to present an inspiring series on how to style items purchased from a thrift store in different ways based on a common theme. This month’s theme was sweaters. It’s currently winter here in the States which means it’s definitely sweater weather for us. I actually love sweaters! They are so cozy!
Let me tell you guys a little secret. I buy 95% of my sweaters from thrift stores! It’s an economical, eco-friendly way of staying chic and warm during the frigid cold months of the year. You can buy several fabulous sweaters for the price of 1 in retail stores. Sweaters are often shunned for being frumpy but let me tell you dolls and guys a secret, you can SLAY and SERVE the public in a sweater honey! Don’t believe me? The Thrift It Clique is going to show you 5 ways how to work that knit!
#1: Add a pop of color to break up a neutral color palette.
#2: Add bold statement jewelry like Kendra of It’s My Evolution!
#3: Pair printed sweater with colored denim for a posh look like Elle of Gernelle Nelson.
#4: Add a collared shirt for a preppy look like Brittany of Vinty Fresh Closet.
#5: Wear a sweater in an unexpected fashion. Pair one over a dress like
Addie of Old World New for extra warmth.
There you have it. Five different ways to slay in a sweater. Which would you try?
