Outfit Inspiration

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.

Outfit 1

Outfit idea: Forever 21 elbow patch sweater, plaid shirt, black jeans, desert boots

Sweater, Jeans, Shirt, Boots, Earrings

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.

Outfit 2

Outfit idea: Forever 21 elbow patch sweater, red jeans, leopard flats, scarf, bracelet

Sweater, Jeans, Scarf, Shoes, Bracelet

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.

Outfit 3

Outfit idea: Forever 21 elbow patch sweater, black bandage skirt, statement necklace, tights, ankle boots

Sweater, Skirt, Booties, Tights, Necklace

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.
