Fashion trend: Embellished sweaters

The doldrums of February are seldom inspiring. I find myself staring at each summer dress in my closet, fingers lingering on the breezy fabrics, yearning for warm weather, before I finally reach for yet another sweater. If you find yourself facing the same sweater-wearing rut as me, why not snazz one of your trusty ones with some embellishment?

I've been spying them everywhere: Sweaters with rhinestones, studs, chains, and beads are - dare I say it - popular? The best part about wearing a sweater with edge (other than the fact that you will be on-trend), is that you can do it yourself! There are so many great tutorials, so why not spend an afternoon embellishing a sweater of your own? Be sure to check out P.S. I Made This's tutorial on embellished gloves or Runway DIY's screw-studded sweater.

However, if you decide you're going to shop for one instead, loads of budget retailers are bound to have them. Try Zara, H&M, Forever 21, or Topshop.

Here's a sample way to style one...
