B+W Striped Sweater from Winter to Early Spring.

Next up on the Create 28 Lovely Spring Looks Challenge, are Bright Colors. Both Outfits featured today have one Strong, Bold Color in them whether Kelly Green or Red. I am showing you two different ways to take a Classic, Versatile, Basic B+W Striped, Boat-neck Sweater and style it from Winter to Early Spring. Both are Outfits from April by the way and the Sweater is in my Top 10 items.
This Classic Striped Sweater is an MVP in my closet in general and the most worn clothing item of the Top 10. I included 6 clothing items, 2 pairs of shoes, a necklace and a scarf. This is the most worn out of the clothes and I bet you can imagine why. There are slight nautical details with the silver buttons on the shoulders and of course the classic/neutral colors in the stripes. This Sweater is an Off-Black almost a Navy Color and in the first, more Wintery Outfit it paired so well with the Red Coat. I threw in more Red+Black in the mix. I have on a Cheetah Red+Black Scarf, Black Skinny Velvet Pants and my newest pair of Oxford Shoes which are Red with a Black, Floral Lace Overlay in the front (with sparkly gray stones) and Black Lace Laces. They are so cute and unique. All I did is add a couple of Lavender Bracelets which are Striped just like the Sweater and a Redish Lipstick, of course. The more Springy Outfit pairs the Sweater with my White Puffer Vest (therefore bringing out its white stripes), my Bright Green. Rockstar Jeans by Old Navy and my Hunter Green+Burgundy Colorblocked Oxfords. I added a Long, Gold-tone Tassel Necklace to the look. Actually the Coat Outfit was worn after the Vest one because early Spring is unpredictable. Which Outfit is your favorite? Do you own any Cute Oxford Flats? I am obsessed with this style of Shoes and own several already, as well as wedge and heel versions.
I didn't crop out my cute photo-bomber on purpose lol. She was running around. Just another day at our home, when I try to take blog photos. Hahahaha. Keeping it real, folks.

  2. I like your way of styling simple classy things by mixing them with one or a couple of bright colourful things. Always looks fresh and interesting.

  3. I love that you found a way to incorporate an item from your top ten with the Create28 challenge! You're right, a black and white striped top can be the most versatile think in your closet (at least that's how I feel about mine). I really love it with the bright green jeans! Perfect for spring. I'm also loving the new look of your blog! So fresh for the warmer seasons!

  9. A classic striped tee is a wonderful wardrobe basic! :) I like the addition of colour in both outfits. the print mixing with the leopard print scarf in the first outfit is very nice, but the second outfit is my favourite as I love those brightly coloured skinny jeans on you :)
