Inspirational Monday: Oversized Sweaters and Lace

Lace slips and lace trimmed skirts have been a trend for a few seasons now. I love the idea of taking a slip dress or skirt and transforming it for a fall look. Oversized sweaters are always one of my favorite fall items. Adding it with a lace trimmed skirt is perfect way to toughen up a super sexy look.

I found this Forever21 skirt recently while browsing the 42nd street store. I knew I had to have it when I saw the price tag of $10.80. It was a perfect transitional skirt, plus it can be worn with a chunky sweater or something more sexy for a date night. For a day look I paired it with my favorite T by Alexander Wang sweater and a pair of loafers. The loafers just add a bit of a tomboy flare. 

Would you wear an oversized sweater with a lace trimmed skirt?

  4. I love this look so much! I'm a huge fan of oversized sweaters too (this one looks soo cosy & warm!) & the lace peeking out is such a great contrast against it. Your hair looks really pretty like this too :)

  5. Heather I'm D-Y-I-N-G over this look!! I'm absolutely antsy to recreate it, it's just so pretty but effortless. And I love how you included other examples in the post, too. It was fun to see how others styled it so similarly. Definitely need to remember this combo!
