Knitted Comfort

I can't remember a time where I didn't love pairing together slouchy sweaters with leggings. This fall, I have been loving the sheer cable-knit sweaters that can easily be transitioned from day to night, a factor that was crucial during my time home last week. I spent 5 wonderful days with my family and friends going straight from day to night activities almost every day. While leather leggings might feel a little aggressive to wear to a trip to the mall or movies, I chose to dress mine down with minimal jewelry and a simple black tote. For nighttime, I was able to fit a smaller clutch into my day bag, along with my chunker earrings and statement wrist candy to really jazz up the look. Not only is this combination incredibly comfortable, but the slouchy cut of the sweaters make everyone's legs look long and lean (especially when worn with a pair of black booties). Depending on how risque (and warm) you like to be, you can opt to wear a camisole under these types of sweaters. If you opt not to, just make sure you have a some killer undergarments options to work with. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
