Draped Sweater Styled 2 Ways
I featured this knit top back in a March e-newsletter (subscribe here!), and also wanted to show how it looks with a skirt! The beauty of this piece is in the minimalist cut, from the elegant higher neckline to the draped sleeves. This is a piece that you can mindlessly throw on with basic black pants and flats and still feel chic in! Uniqlo has since come out with a newer, more lightweight version in a few good neutrals (black, ivory, taupe) and a fun mustard yellow. My older top is in their 3-D knit, and the newer one is labeled a lacy sweater with great reviews.
Here’s how it looks styled in a more feminine pairing, fully tucked into an elastic-waist skirt:
Affordable work pants that run small
If you’re very petite and have trouble finding pants that fit in the waist, this style below is a must-try! I mentioned last year that the J.Crew Cameron (see my review) were one of the few pants to ever fit me without alterations. Their Factory store came out with the Ruby pant, a more affordable version of this high rise, narrow waisted style for under $40. While the fabric is different (a little less dressy than the Cameron), the fit is equally good. I’m trying on 00 petite here in navy and they are fitted throughout with no waist gap, so run smaller than LOFT, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, and other J.Crew pants. For reference, my waist and hips are 24″ and 32″ respectively.
Do you guys like this top styled better with pants or a skirt?
