Every winter, I somehow become obsessed with pullover sweaters, and this year is no exception. Fitted and cropped or oversized and slouchy, it doesn't matter; I HAVE to have them all.
So when I stumbled upon this pretty pullover sweater from (surprise, surprise) Forever 21, for only $13.50, I couldn't NOT feature it as this week's Fabulous Find. This particular sweater has a great neutral color and perfect fit to keep you both warm and stylish during these winter months, AND incorporates a hot trend for winter, elbow patches. So check out a few ways to rock it!
Elbow Patch Sweater - $13.50 at Forever 21
Now that you've seen the sweater (click on the link for a better view of the elbow patches), check out these three different ways to style it.
This look gives off a little bit of a rugged vibe but maintains its femininity thanks to the pretty, neutral color palette.
Here, I started with a long sleeved plaid shirt and threw the sweater on top of it, so the top and bottom of the shirt can peek out for extra color and texture. I then chose a pair of dark wash jeans and some tan suede cowboy boots for the bottom half of the look, and finished the whole thing off with a pair of pretty gold earrings.
For this look, I had fun playing with textures and patterns for extra interest. This time I paired the sweater with some awesome red jeans and a pair of leopard flats. To play off of the leopard, I chose a neutral, tan-colored scarf and a detailed gold and silver studded bangle.
The sweater, scarf, shoes, and bracelet all go together seamlessly because of their colors - and the red jeans add an unexpected pop of color for a fun, daring look.
It may seem impossible to dress up a casual knit sweater like this one, but it's actually not - you just need the right accessories!
Here, I paired the sweater with a black body-con skirt and dotted tights for extra warmth. (And, okay, they're just plain cute...) Then, I chose this amazing pair of black ankle booties, and finished the look off with a big black and silver statement necklace. Voila! You're ready for a night on the town.
