Happy Tuesday, we’re in the home stretch! It’s day 21 of 22 Days of Fall Fashion, and I’m styling a casual pullover with jeans and booties.
As you probably know by now, this is my fall uniform of choice, but just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it has to be boring. I incorporated a mix of patterns and textures for interest, and of course fit and proportion are key to a polished appearance, no matter how basic the outfit may be.
This sweater is cozy and soft, with almost a nubby texture. I love this faded coral color, but it also comes in a few other solids as well as some color block patterns.
I would say it is showing a little more pink in these photos than it is in real life, but I don’t think it has warm undertones… it’s hard to say. I feel like it would be flattering on women with warm or cool coloring.
It’s cut slightly longer in the back than the front, and the silhouette is relaxed without being sloppy. I appreciate that the sleeves are nice and long, and the subtle scoop neck and raglan sleeves are flattering as well.
The material is a nylon/acrylic/wool/spandex blend, and it runs true to size. I’m wearing my usual small.
While this coral color looks great with all shades of bluejeans, I also like how it pairs with these off-black jeans. The faded black is more casual than a pure black wash, and they seem to go with everything.
These are the Good American Good Legs that I’ve been wearing so much lately. They were an #NSale find, and I love the fit. They have an 11″ rise, so I prefer to wear them with tops that I leave untucked because they keep everything nice and smooth underneath.
Because the outfit is so simple, I added snake print booties for pattern and texture. They even have a hint of pink in the print that ties in nicely with the sweater.
These are from last season, but I did find a few sizes on Amazon. I love these booties. They are so comfortable.
I chose not to wear a necklace, and went with a pair of smaller geometric hoop earrings instead. These days I’m liking the simplicity of a plain neckline. I think I did the long pendant necklace so much in the past few years that it’s beginning to look dated to me.
Another option would be to layer a few shorter delicate necklaces, but I just didn’t feel like this outfit needed it.
It’s a simple look, but the cozy knit offers a nice contrast to the off-black denim, the snake print booties bring some pattern and added texture to the look, and even the quilted leather bag adds another element of interest.
As we head into fall and the weather starts to cool down, this is the type of outfit I’ll be wearing for outdoor dining with the family and backyard get-togethers with friends. I can add a lightweight jacket when it gets chilly, and even a thin base layer for extra warmth if I need it.
