A lot of people think that because I blog about what I'm wearing that I'm constantly buying new clothes. That's actually not the case. Sure I still shop and buy some new items each season that I can incorporate into my current closet but the majority of what I wear is probably a season or more old. I try to find ways to freshen the old favorites up. This sweater is the perfect example. It's over a year old and I kid you not when I tell you I wear this sweater in the winter at least twice a week. It's cozy, comfy, and warm.
The best way to bring new life to old pieces is to style them differently and/or incorporate a current trend into your look. If your perusing the fashion magazines or online for style inspiration check your closet first. Often times you don't need to buy anything new as you probably have something similar in your closet. I was looking for a slip dress to wear layered when I found this one for less than $20. My intention was to wear it with a t-shirt underneath and long cardigan or possible a duster vest. However, I decided to change things up and throw on my trusty oversized sweater. The sweater was not long enough to wear on it's own so the length of the slip dress was perfect to help cover up the lady parts and then some. An option if you are concerned about sweater length is opt for an actual sweater dress (I've linked some below). You can easily play with the length by adding a belt to help pull up part of the sweater and let the slip dress peek through.
Slip dresses are a great layering piece and they come in a variety of styles from solid silk to tulle and in lots of different colors. This one with the lace hem adds an element of sexiness to an otherwsie boring grandpa like sweater.
Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by.
