Happy Friday, yay! Today I’m showing you all how to spruce up your standard sweater. This beige sweater is one of the warmest that I own. I love that, especially because I deal with very chilly New England and Midwestern winters. However, the big, fuzzy sweater look isn’t always one I am going for. It can appear to casual at times.

In order to conquer that problem, I’ve paired my big, winter sweater with tight leather leggings. If you remember only one thing, it should be that leather can sex up everything (and not just in a provocative way, but in a “oh, that looks so chic” way). Leather pants, skirts, tops, embellishments… you name it, leather should be there.

What do you wear your winter sweaters with?

¡Feliz viernes! Hoy les muestro una manera fácil de elevar un look que consiste en un suéter grande. Este suéter es muy caliente. Lo adoro porque hace muy, muy frío en Boston y Detroit, entonces un suéter y capas son necesarios.

Sin embargo, un suéter grandísimo no es siempre como quiero aparecer. Puede ser demasiado relajado. Para superar este problema, combino mis suéteres grandes con piel. Si van a aprender algo en mi blog, es que la piel puede cambiar cualquier look. Es pulido, llamativo, y el material juega muy bien contra la mayoría de otras telas. También añadí tacones de serpiente alto porque, pues, porqué no?!

    love this look Rachel! What size are you wearing just to get a better idea on the sizing and length of sweater? Only XS left on the website :(

      Thanks! I am wearing XS! I usually wear a 0 with some room at stores like BR, Ann Taylor, Jcrew, etc. Hope that helps!
