A cozy sweater is a cold-weather wardrobe staple, so for this week’s Fabulous Find, we’ve found a versatile, stylish and totally inexpensive option for fall.

Priced at just $14.50, this open knit sweater from Forever 21 is one of those pieces you can wear with everything, meaning it offers serious bang for your buck. For this post, we decided to go with the rose-colored option, but if you aren’t fond of pink shades, this sweater is also available in seven other colors.

Outfit Inspiration

If you like this cheap and chic sweater, then you’re going to love the outfits we put together for inspiration. Read on to find out three stylish ways to wear this week’s Fabulous Find:

Outfit #1: Chic for Fall

Product Info: Sweater- Forever 21, Earrings- Kohl’s, Nail Polish- Essie’s “Stylenomics”, Shorts- Nordstrom, Tights- ModCloth, Bag- Dorothy Perkins, Shoes- PacSun

Create a fashion-forward look by pairing our Fab Find with some on-trend faux leather shorts. Next, add printed tights, which not only lend an adorable touch, but also help to make this outfit fall-appropriate. Accessorize with a tweed bag and a pair of drop earrings, then add some chic, high-heeled ankle boots. For the finishing touch, paint your nails a shade of emerald green, which creates a pretty contrast against the pink color of the sweater.

Outfit #2: Cute & Casual

For a more laid-back look, pair the sweater with some trendy oxblood skinny jeans. Neutral-colored flats continue the casual vibe, while a leopard print bag adds a fun touch. Accessorize with several unique rings and a statement-making agate stone necklace for a stylish and comfy autumn outfit.

Outfit #3: Military-Inspired Glam

This final look plays with fall’s military trend, albeit in a cozy and feminine way. Start by layering the sweater over an olive green dress, allowing the studded collar to peek through. On your feet, don high-heeled oxfords – these ones are polished, preppy and perfect for fall. To accessorize, add a few stacked bracelets and a gold box clutch for a hint of sparkle. Finally, style your hair in a high bun, the perfect hairstyle to showcase that on-trend studded collar.

    Absolutely fantastic. Just found this site the other day and every post has been so helpful! Just a question – for the dress, do you think it would just look good with the sweater if it was army green or does the black work as well. Please let me know because I will definitely be buying both!

    @Ellie- I think the black version of the dress would also look great with the sweater!
