Accessorize a sweater for all seasons. Expert Styling Tips by Lori Lori Jewelry.
We all have that special garment in our wardrobe that we just … even if we never find the occasion to wear it. So let’s talk about how to take your favorite clothes out of your closet and really wear them season after season. It’s all about how you accessorize!
For example, here is my little blue sweater from Anthropology that has been in my closet for twenty-years! And I’m still just in love with it! It’s warm and it’s wool; and it has the most adorable embroidery with the powder blue with the chocolate and the cream. It’s been in my closet forever, but here is how I wear it season after season:
I start with the jewelry! For this season I’m going with a gorgeous aquamarine statement necklace and two layers of vintage rosary beads. I’m also wearing lots of fun bracelets, stacks of crystal bracelets in various hues and blues, and natural stone beaded bracelets that bring in a little neutral dark browns. To further accessorize, I button the sweater all the way up and use cashmere beanie and cute, chocolate Ugg boots. The reason this look works, is because I’ve made it about the accessories. The jewelry makes the statement and the sweater becomes the perfect backdrop.
To keep using this sweater beyond the winter, next season I’ll unbutton the sweater and open it up over a white camisole and layer chocolate brown, fresh-water pearls. When it gets closer to summer, I’ll pull my hair into a ponytail and wear big gypsy hoop earrings and skip the necklaces and only bracelets. I have worn this sweater over a slip dress, over a tshirt, and even a bodysuit. The truth is: change your accessories and it will update that garment to work with you in any season.
