Hello, friends! TGIF!!! I’m back with Day 8 of 26 Days of Fall Fashion, and I’ve styled a classic combination for fall — a camel and black outfit with a pop of animal print.
This Zip Back Crewneck Cashmere Sweater is available in limited sizes and colors. (Wouldn’t the red be pretty at Christmastime???) It’s also on sale 50% off, bringing it down to $68.98, which is a great price for cashmere. (For size reference, I am wearing the medium, so I believe it runs true to size.)
I love the exposed zipper in the back, the ribbed side panels, the raglan sleeves, and how it’s longer in the back than in the front. Details like these are what sets an item of clothing apart from all the other similar items out there. I mean, camel cashmere pullovers are everywhere, but what I love about this one is all the little details.
Since this one is so low in inventory, I gathered some other camel colored sweaters I thought you might like.
I paired the sweater with my black distressed skinnies. Because it’s such a classic combination, I went with distressed jeans to keep it from being too safe. More affordable options are here and here.
From there, I chose my shoes. I debated wearing a tan or black bootie or maybe my chestnut over-the-knee boots with this camel and black outfit, but then I decided a printed flat was the pop of pattern I needed to take this outfit from classic to fabulous. I love a leopard flat, but these giraffe print lace-up flats are unexpected and fun for a change. Unfortunately, they sold out and I can’t seem to find anything like them to recommend. If you see something, let me know!
I added a long pendant necklace for the reasons I explained in yesterday’s post. When wearing a higher neckline such as a turtleneck or a crewneck, a long pendant draws the eye down and towards the middle of the body, elongating the upper body and creating the illusion of that hourglass figure we all covet.
Since the pendant is fairly plain, I wore hoop earrings with some extra detail. I normally wear plain hoops or simple studs when I wear a statement necklace, but I felt like this combination worked.
I carried a cognac colored bag because I liked how it blends into the golden shades in the top half of the outfit and allows the fun black and white printed shoes to pop. The shoes also have cognac colored straps, which coordinates nicely with this bag. A black bag would have worked too, but I liked this a little better. I am by no means an expert on any of this, but it’s what makes sense to me. Ha!
Finally, this sweater is longer than most that I wear. It’s almost tunic length, but I don’t think I’d wear it with leggings. It’s just a bit too short in the front for my comfort level, and besides, I like how the distressed jeans keep the outfit from being too tailored and sweet.
