7 Valentine's Day Outfit Ideas with 1 Simple Pink Sweater8:03 PM
Last week I talked about how to stay warm on Valentine's Day by accessorizing with pink on your comfy sweater. As Valentine's Day is only a week away, if you have been busy picking the best gift for him but have not had time to think about what to wear next week, here are seven ways to dress up with a simple pink sweater that many of you can find in your closet.
The first part of my mixing and matching involves a lot, I meant, I lot, of patterns. From the conservative black and white, to the cool and preppy anchors, to my favorite, colorful floral. Fortunately, Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday this year. But for those of you who still have to work next Saturday, and plan to go to dinner right after work, you can start the morning on some work appropriate looks with long pants and a blazer.
The sweater I wear here is the J.Crew Merino Tippi Sweater. The sweater has just the perfect amount of thickness and softness. It is the most versatile sweater I've had that I literally wear it from September to June. I have at least five different colors of them, from both the regular J.Crew retail store and J.Crew Factory. This is actually one of the few items where I don't find the quality to be much different in the factory store from the regular retail store. For those of you looking for an even softer and warmer sweater, the J.Crew Collection Featherweight Cashmere Long-Sleeve Tee has a very similar fit to the one above.
I created this pink sweater collage 2 years ago, but I thought I should bring it up again in the spirit of Valentine's Day. Hope you find them useful! I'd love to hear which look is your favorite. So please let me know in the comment below! :)
