I get asked a lot about changing your look so that it looks like a different outfit. The easiest and most affordable way that I know to change an outfit’s look is with accessories. Today I will show you two ways to wear this outfit with only making a few simple changes.
Most of us get in a rut and make the mistake of wearing the same outfit in the same way. Even though I have on the same top, jeans, and boots in this look, changing the accessories changes the look. To change the look of an outfit, you have to think outside the box. I’ve written about this topic before because I feel it is an important lesson that we need to learn. Too often, we reach for the same items instead of trying something new.
I started with this cozy oversized, boucle crew neck sweater. This sweater has drop shoulder sleeves and has a thick rib-knit design at the neckline, cuffs, and hemline. I love the oversized fit of this sweater, and I am wearing a medium, and it is still plenty roomy. The sweater is a cotton blend, and it is machine washable, lay flat to dry.
I love the high-low hemline that will cover your bottom when you are wearing leggings. Skinny jeans are how I chose to style this sweater today, but you could also wear it will black, charcoal, and camel-colored pants. This neutral color of gray is very versatile. The sweater comes in several colors, so be sure to check them all out.
I chose to add my Sophee heart hoop earrings and a Burberry plaid look-alike scarf for this relaxed and casual look. If you are interested in the real Burberry scarf, here is a link to it. This neutral scarf looks great with black, gray, shades of brown, white/ivory, and red. It is a classic print that you will be able to wear with lots of outfits. This is an old scarf, so I will link to some similar ones for you.
For this look, I removed the scarf and added this long open front cardigan. This cardigan, and the jeggings you’ll hear about below, are probably two of my favorite purchases from Chico’s. The cardigan is a cashmere-blend, and it is super soft. I absolutely love how it feels, and the light oatmeal color is the perfect neutral.
You can see how long the cardigan is, and it covers a lot of areas that I don’t necessarily want on display. Lol! This cardigan can easily be dressed up or worn casually like I am doing today. Either way that you wear this sweater, it is going to add elegance to your look. I am wearing a size 1 in the sweater, and it has plenty of room.
Once the scarf was removed, I kept the same earrings and added the Ryder Multi-Chain necklace. This necklace is a statement necklace, and it is one that I wear often. Since the boucle sweater is a crewneck, I want to bring your eye downward to elongate my neck and face. The scarf did that for the first look, and this necklace does the same thing for this look.
This necklace is on the expensive side, but I can say that I am getting my money’s worth since I wear it so much. However, I’ll try and link to some other options that aren’t quite as expensive.
These are the jeggings that I mentioned earlier in this post. I love the way that they fit and look on me. When I heard the word “jeggings,” I was afraid that they would fit super tight. However, these jeggings aren’t tighter than any of my other skinny jeans. I ordered my usual size .5 in these jeans, and they fit true to size. Normally I wear a size 10 in other brands and a size .5 in Chico’s jeans.
The jeggings that I am wearing are the fly-front jeggings, and they are completely sold out except for the size 00. So, I am linking to some others that I like. I think that I have all of these jeggings, but all of my purchases are starting to run together. Lol! #bloggerproblems
I have on the same pair of ankle boots in both photos. These are the Lex booties, and I love the neutral color, the pointy toe, and the large block/chunky heel. The boots seem to go with everything, and the pointy toe elongates my legs. Notice how the boots match the scarf in this look and the cardigan in the other look. I used the boots to tie in the color scheme, and adding a handbag could have done the same thing.
What did you think about the two different looks? Was this helpful for seeing how you can change up outfits in your closet?
Also, I am going to start doing try-on sessions again, so I need to place a few orders. Let me know which stores you would like to see a try-on session from. Here are a few stores that I am considering: Loft, Ann Taylor, Talbots, Target, Amazon, Nordstrom, Walmart, Old Navy, Chico’s, J. Crew, J. Jill, Express, White House Black Market, or Banana Republic. If you have any suggestions that I didn’t mention, please let me know.
