Grandpa's Sweater




Sweater & Belt (H&M); Dress (Nine West find at Marshalls); Tights (Target);
Shoes & Sunglasses (Kohls)

You wouldn't typically think of raiding your Grandpa's closet... however there is certainly a place for a long and narrow button up sweater in any wardrobe.  There are so many ways to wear it:  belted over a dress; adding it to leggings, a tank, and scarf; throwing it over a t-shirt and shorts for some warmth; or plain and simple with skinny jeans and boots.  Who knew Grandpa's clothes could be so stylish?

That oversized sweater looks so cute over the dress! I actually have a really similar one that I've been avoiding wearing for fear that it will look like a bathrobe, but I LOVE how you styled it with the dress...I'll have to try this!

I live for Grandpa sweaters! I don't have any grandparents close to me but I regularly raid my dad's closet, even his old lumberjack gear (I'm Canadian, okay. Even lawyers have lumberjack pasts haha). I am loving how chic and femme you made this sweater, such a great look!

Kate said...

This is such a great way to wear long cardigans! I have one from years ago that I stopped wearing because it felt outdated. I love the idea of wearing it with a dress! I might just have to try that this week (pending cooperation from the weather) :)
