Styling A Red Sweater...Four Ways

Which Sweater Styling Do You Like Best?

It actually felt like winter is coming this past weekend with colder temps and strong winds and I'm keeping warm by donning a favorite red sweater in honor of the coming holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Red seems to be the favorite color of choice for this festive season. Red is also a color I love and I decided to challenge myself to style this red sweater four different ways. And you get to join in the fun letting me know which style you like best. Sound fun? Let's get started.

Style #1-Plain Sweater

In this style, I keep the sweater plain with no necklace or scarf. The wide neck cowl style of this sweater adds a touch of elegance all by itself.

Style #2-Sweater with Pearl Necklace

In this style I add a long multi-strand pearl necklace to the look. Who says you can't wear pearls with a sweater and a pair of jeans?!

Style #3-Sweater with Plaid Jacket

In this look, I add a plaid jacket to the style. The length of the jacket is a little longer which I like. I've had this jacket for a loooong time and always enjoy wearing it.

Style #4-Sweater with sparkly scarf and ring


In this final look, I added a sparkly black scarf tied with a ring that belonged to my mother. Using rings as scarf ties is a great way to enhance the look of the scarf. 

****So, four different styles using the same sweater****
Changing out the accessories and/or adding a jacket can really change up the look of an entire outfit. Some looks are more formal, some less so. I actually wore one of these styles to a concert yesterday afternoon. I'll reveal the style number I wore in my next post after giving you a chance to vote. I love getting the most bang for my buck by finding ways to style an article of clothing in different ways by changing out the accessories. How about you?

And Now A Word About Shoes....

I am LOVING these thrifted booties I picked up for a mere four bucks at Goodwill. I have been admiring the cuff style for awhile and these certainly compliment the skinny jeans and sweater styles in all of the four style pictures above. The booties are by "dollhouse" which is a brand I had not heard of before. 

The cuffs can also be pulled up and snapped for longer length and a bit of a different look. I really like the look and versatility of these boots. I plan to do a future post, by the way, on buying shoes at Goodwill, so look for that post soon. time!  Hope you will respond to two questions in your comments today! 

1. Which of the styles do you like best?
2. Which style do you think I wore to the concert?

Can't wait to hear what you have to say!

Until Next Time,

I like all the looks you put together, but I enjoy participating so here goes:
My favorite is #3--the plaid jacket.
I think you might have worn the pearl necklace, style #2, to the concert.
I'm eager to hear the results and to know what you really wore to the concert!

I like 3 and 4 the best on the sweater. And both ways on the boots. Looking great Debbie!

Karen said...

I like them all, but I'm going with #2. Boots are great too!

Hi Debbie, I like them all, but my favourite is number two, with the pearl necklace. I think polo necks and cowl necks generally look fine on their own, but I think the light colour of the necklace contrasts with the red and really suits your colouring, and the delicacy adds extra interest. I enjoyed your post - thank you!
