Friday Find: A dressy sweater

Yikes! The temperature is starting to drop. I don’t know about you but as soon as it gets chilly, I just want to grab a warm, cozy sweater.  Having said that, I have to admit that I usually steer clear of most sweaters, especially those that are chunky and thick.  They just add bulk to the body and, unless you’re very lean and straight, make you look bigger than you actually are.  Why would you ever want to do that to yourself?

Here’s a sweater that actually has some shape.  It won’t look like you’re wearing a garbage bag or a muumuu.


Loretta Pullover Sweater (BCBG)

Why I love it:

  • It’s timeless.  Whether you’re 20 or 60, or any other age really, this sweater will definitely work for you.
  • It’s dressy.  I can definitely see this being worn out for dinner with friends on a cold fall evening.  For me, I’d also wear it out during the day with a great pair of skinny jeans and little booties for a dressier, “I’m running errands” look.
  • Yes, it’s trendy.  I know you’ve see this beaded sweater concept everywhere.  Because it’s black and a knit (rather than a sweatshirt), it will have greater longevity.  In other words, you won’t look like a fashion “has been” next season.  I would never guide you down THAT path.
  • It’s on sale!  From now until Tuesday, it’s 30% off.

You’re welcome.

Happy Friday.
