Hi Everyone, Shay here. I started working in the Fashion Industry when I was 14 and needless to say, I’ve been obsessed with clothing ever since (actually that started sooner but who’s counting). One of my FAVOURITE parts about my job on Team Jilly is being able to find new items for Jilly’s closet and help style our photoshoots. I ordered her this sweater in pink last year and knew that it was going to be a staple. I’m not going to lie, it’s a bit of an investment for most, but I’ve learned to invest in 1 or 2 items that I know will last a few years instead of 5 items that will only last me a season.
I loved this sweater so much last year that I’ve been refreshing the Free People site waiting for the new colours to launch. As soon as they did, I ordered it for Jillian in the new chambray blue colour and cream for myself. If I had it my way I would own one of every colour (but my bank account says differently). I decided to invest in a basic colour that I knew I would get lots of use out of and be able to style a multitude of ways.
Back to what this blog is about … I have styled this sweater for you 4 different ways to show you the versatility of it. I could’ve kept going but I didn’t want to bore you. Follow along below and let me know which way you like it worn best in the comments below …
Style 1: Coffee Meeting
I recently wore this outfit to a coffee meeting and paired the sweater with a darker jean because I was feeling ALL the fall vibes. I funked it up a bit with my favourite mules and a structured beige hat to add a bit of a “fashiony-edge” to the otherwise subtle outfit. Trust me, mules and hats (and cute bags too) will be your best friend if you want to take your outfit from boring to fashion forward in no time.
Style 2: Work Out to Running Errands
This is by far the comfiest style of all. I recently wore it on a road trip to Tofino and you look super cute and stylish without losing ANY comfort! It’s the perfect outfit (in my opinion) to run around and do errands in … or for rolling out of bed on a Sunday, throwing a hat on and heading to yoga class … finishing it all off with brunch with the girls. Need I say more??
Style 3: Every Day Attire
I would probably wear this style the most out of them all. Nothing beats a pair of comfy boyfriend jeans, a cozy fall sweater, a blanket scarf, and some cute sneakers. This style is perfect for your every day activities, for work (if you work somewhere casual), and even for apple picking!
Style 4: A Night Out
This is definitely the most risqué style of all … but you can totally wear it as a dress for a night out!! I know some of you are probably thinking no way josé that is way too short … but just throw it over top of a dress that you are comfortable with the length or even wear tights underneath it if you’re still saying NO lol! I’ve paired it with knee high boots and statement earrings to jazz it up.
Well there you have it … I hope this has made it easier for you to picture yourself wearing this sweater and the versatility of it. I can’t wait to see how you babes rock it … make sure to tag me so that I can see!!
