STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Scandinavian Sweater

The end of the month is near and that means most of us are struggling with our monthly budget. Unfortunately for us the fashion world doesn’t sleep and neither does our need to consume. Fortunately for us there is an easy solution to that problem – thrifting.

Today's Fashionista is a passionate thrifter and found her Scandinavian – style sweater in a thrift store in Ohio. The Scandinavian sweater is a great staple piece for fall and a trend that won’t fade anytime soon.

Follow this week’s Fashionista’s lead and pair the sweater with jeans and boots for a casual look. Add a personal touch with unusual jewelry, like these trendy feather earrings, and you are ready for a comfortable yet fashionable day at school. Another option is to wear a longer, oversized sweater with leggings or tights and then add a pair of flats or heels depending on whether you want to dress it up or down. 

Be careful not to wear the sweater with sweat pants, because that will easily make you look like you just stumbled out of bed. If you’d still like to wear sweat-like-pants, I would go for a high waisted pair – That way you can use a belt to create a nice silhouette while still enjoying the great comfort of your outfit. A good example of comfortable, high waisted pants are these tweet pants from Urban Outfitters. They will look great combined with a big sweater, as long as you create a visible silhouette with a belt.
