In the winter, you will most likely catch me in a sweater and some jeans. It’s an easy go-to look that’s comfortable and adaptable.
When I wear these casual looks, I try to style garments that have extra special detail. For example, I love the see-through mesh stripes in this When the Smoke Clears Top from Chic Soul. It gives the outfit some depth, and I love anything that shows a little bit of skin. One thing I am not crazy about when it comes to this sweater is the shorter front and the longer back. I wouldn’t say it’s a hi-lo kind of fit, but I usually try to avoid this style because I would rather have a high fit in the back and a low fit upfront. Is anyone else with me on this? If so, I decided to see what it would be like to wear this sweater backward and if it would satisfy my need for a reverse “hi-lo,” and it totally did. The only thing that bothered me when I wore the top this way was that the neck was a little higher. Since I have a rather short neck, it wasn’t the most flattering. But I loved the way the sweater fits lower in the front and higher in the back once I turned it backward. This plus size stripe sweater is extremely versatile and could be dressed up or down, which is perfect for the days where I have to make one outfit work for different occasions. But today, I paired the sweater with these Best Day of My Life Jeans. I am always on the lookout for plus size gray skinny jeans because I feel like they look amazing on my curves and they also go with everything.
