Fringe Sweater

Do you have a certain special something in your wardrobe that stands out from the rest?

What I’m Wearing:

•  Thakoon Addition Fringe Sweater (no longer available; THIS or THIS is a good alternative!)
•  Equipment Slim Signature Silk Blouse
•  J Brand Legging Jean
•  Tania Spinelli Nude Patent Classic Pump
•  Chloe Faye Shoulder Bag
•  J.Crew Rhinestone Necklace (no longer available; THIS is similar)

The kind of statement making piece that you build the rest of your outfit around? Sort of like that STATEMENT NECKLACE we spoke about, but on a different scale. Sometimes, this statement item is such a departure from your usual style that you’re actually shocked that you love it to begin with… which is exactly the case when it comes to this fringe sweater.

It’s not exactly a low key, minimalist look by any means. This is a sweater that basically announces to a room: “I’m here… B*tches.”

(Obviously, in a very nice, pleasant, non-offensive way — or not.)

When I saw this sweater make its appearance on THE OUTNET (one of my favorite online resources for unique designer pieces at a major discount!) last year, it immediately went into my shopping cart. Unfortunately, its since sold out, but you can find a very similar alternative HERE or HERE (this season’s Thakoon style).

Some styling notes for you:

The key to pulling off a large, oversized topper like this is to keep the rest of the look streamlined and minimal. Skinny jeans balance out the oversized proportions of the cardigan, while a white silk blouse keeps the look sleek. Nude pointed toe pumps elongate the silhouette completing the look!

Now, here’s a unique styling twist on the traditional blouse: try buttoning the shirt to the top (collar included) and add a short statement necklace under the collar. It changes the look of the blouse completely and gives it a fun and modern update. It’s a bit edgy and a bit ingenue all in one.
