Off-the-Shoulder Sweater + Coated Black Denim
Greetings, and welcome back to 25 Days of Winter Fashion! So the biggest shopping weekend of the year has come and gone, and I feel like we can finally get back to some semblance of normalcy around here. Phew! I hope you all found some amazing deals on everything you were shopping for. Paul and I knocked out most of our Christmas shopping yesterday, and that feels really good!
This weekend I have 3 holiday events to attend, and I’m sure I’m not the only one, so I’m dedicating this week to holiday party outfits of varying degrees of formality. Yesterday I shared the first of two looks I’ve put together with these coated denim pants and black suede pumps, and this is number two!
I was immediately drawn to this bow back sweater because of the gorgeous color, and I always like a winter party look that has long sleeves so I don’t have to worry about being cold. They’re calling this an “at the shoulder” sweater because it sits higher than most off-the-shoulder styles, which is nice for those who feel self conscious wearing something that completely bares the shoulders. Plus it’s a little warmer this way.
It has a bit of a sheen to it, which makes it festive for the holidays, and I also love the velvet bow detail on the back. That makes the sweater, in my opinion!
This sweater appears to still be 40% off, although the White House Black Market website says their promo ended yesterday. If you like it, grab one fast and see if the discount code works. (Your code will appear at the top of your screen. It’s a one-time use only, so get anything you may want in one order.)
I love White House Black Market for dresses and festive tops at the holidays. They do a really good job for our age group — their styles are on trend but classic, and I’m always pleased with the quality for the price point especially when they run sales like this one. Also, they carry petites and plus sizes, and this sweater is available in both. It’s also available in a pretty blush color.
We discussed these pants yesterday, but for those just tuning in, the coated denim gives them a leather-like look with the comfort and affordability of denim. I like how they give a classic sweater and pumps a more edgy vibe.
I’ve been wearing the DL1961 Emma legging jeans for years, and these have the same great fit. They’re all 50% off thru 11/30, which is an amazing deal and practically unheard of. If you’re ordering, I recommend sizing up one from your normal. I always wear a size larger in DL1961 than I do in most other premium denim brands.
If you’re not into the coated denim, another option would be these velvet slim ankle pants or these slim bootcut pants. Any of the above would look great with this sweater; it just depends on your personal style and the dress code of your event.
I carried a black leather tassel clutch and wore black suede pumps. Both are old but I’ll link up similar styles below. I accessorized with these mixed metal chandelier earrings. I could probably go with something bigger since they’re the only accessory I’m wearing, but they work fine.
This outfit is pretty simple — it’s really just a sweater and jeans, but the luxe fabrics and the fun off-the-shoulder neckline and bow detail on the top elevate it to a festive look that would be appropriate for a variety of events during the holiday season.
Be sure to visit Cyndi and see the winter outfit she’s styling today.
