Greetings, friends! Happy hump day! Today I’m sharing an off-the-shoulder sweater outfit that’s perfect for a fall dinner out with your honey or a casual holiday party later this winter.
I first discovered this flecked foldover off-the-shoulder sweater in a LOFT store, but didn’t buy it that day. When I shared a dressing room selfie in a Shop With Me post, a bunch of you told me I was crazy and I should go back and buy it, so I did.
Now I just need to get my husband to take me out to dinner somewhere that I can wear it! It definitely makes for a fun fall/winter date night look.
Not only is this sweater super pretty, it’s incredibly soft and feels great on. I love the speckled pattern in the knit; it sort of reminds me of a starry night. While I’m dubbing this a fall date night look (it’s only October, after all) I think it will be really pretty in the wintertime and for casual holiday events. It just has such a festive, wintery look to it.
For size reference, I have this sweater in a small, and it’s perfect. Another option is this relaxed turtleneck in the same material — that eliminates the off-the-shoulder issue for those who aren’t sure about that.
If you need a strapless bra recommendation, this Wacoal underwire strapless bra is AMAZING. So many of you have bought it and come back to thank me. It’s also on sale in the white gardenia color at Macy’s.
I can see this sweater with white jeans and silver or pewter heels for the holidays, but I decided to go with a safer option and I paired it with these high rise blue jeans. Since I already feel a little conspicuous in an off-the-shoulder style top, I’ll likely keep the rest of the outfit fairly subdued.
These jeans are on sale at Bloomingdale’s — 25% off with code FRIENDS. I chose them for this outfit because of the dark indigo wash with subtle fading.
They’re dressier than my faded distressed jeans, but they’re still a lighter shade of blue than the sweater. When pairing navy blue and denim, I try to have some contrast between the shades of blue.
This metallic beaded wrap bracelet from Stella & Dot is a fun piece to add to your dressier looks.
Also, Bloomingdale’s has a gorgeous crushed velvet R Minkoff clutch included in their sale that would also be amazing with this outfit. I’m looking at the grey/gunmetal color, but the blush color or dark cherry could be cool with it too — maybe I should have brought a pop of color into this outfit. Anyway, if you’re looking for a nice versatile clutch to update your date night wardrobe this winter, this one would go with almost anything.
Finally, these mixed metal chandeliers are eye-catching and work well with the bracelet as well as the rest of the outfit.
I wore black suede pumps that have a slightly rounded toe and a chunkier heel. They’re not as dramatic as stilettos but they still help elevate the look. Mine are old, but this pair is similar, and here’s a similar budget-friendly option. I think a metallic shoe would be really fun with this outfit too, as long as it works with the bag.
I can see wearing this look out to dinner with friends or my husband, and I think it will be really fun for casual holiday events. It would be sassy with a black leather jacket over it, or I’ll wear it with a black wool dress coat.
