A Luxe and Affordable Sweater for Fall

I’m treasuring these last weeks of summer, but I must admit that I’m looking forward to fall and the new style possibilities it brings. Cozy knits, for example. I love a comfy sweater with interesting details. It got a just a tad chilly in St. Louis, and I immediately reached for the slouchy red sweater featured today. What can I say? I just couldn’t wait to wear it.

The sweater, already on sale for $44, is sexy, comfortable, and versatile. It’s a cowl neck sweater with zippers at the shoulders. The zippers are functional too and can be adjusted to transform the look of the sweater. I’m wearing the zippers halfway open to create this off-shoulder, slouchy look.

Talking about fall, tassels and fringe are projected to continue to dominate trends throughout the season. My Berry Brand tassel earrings, which retail for $48, will keep me right on trend. 

Back to the sweater. I’m wearing an extra small. I tend to try the smallest size I think I can fit when an item has an oversized or slouchy fit. In this sweater, that strategy worked for me.
