A reader wrote to me that she doesn’t like wearing black- because it’s so dreary, and I agree with her that it can be depressing, but I think it can also be really chic.
In my outfit today I have replaced the boring grey fleece on the left with this gorgeous grey sweater from Zara. My 17 year old son bought this for me for Christmas a few years ago, how cute is that?! One thing I love about this sweater is that it is a very thin- almost like a t shirt, but warmer. It also has great detailing on the sides- see below in the photo.
Living in the Pacific Northwest people tend to wear a lot of fleece. And I get it, fleece is warm, but unless you are out hiking or skiing, I say skip the fleece. A nice sweater is much more stylish.
I also changed up the look by rolling the hems of my jeans, showing just a peek of skin. I also replaced my black booties with the grey suede ones from Paul Green. These boots were expensive, but worth every penny. My feet hurt ALL THE TIME, so these well made boots are amazingly comfortable and I can wear them all day.
To finish the outfit, I added a cute necklace for interest and a belt- revealed by the infamous half tuck!
To me, this is a chic look. It’s easy, effortless, yet stylish.
