If you've seen the memes floating around on Facebook discussing people's favorite things about Autumn, sweatshirts are absolutely included on that list! Today's look features a unique take on the popular Autumn piece, the sweatshirt, but is perfect to transition from the warmer to colder months of Autumn with a few simple transitions.
My sweatshirt is a longline, flowly tank that I found at Marshalls a few years ago. While it is a tank top, it is not your ideal piece when the temperature is in the 90s. I have always worn this look in the earlier Autumn months, but plan to take the look into the latter Autumn months this year as well. There are several ways to make the transition successfully.
The first is by mixing different textures. Layer a long sleeve black, lace top underneath the tank for an instant sweet, yet edgy look. Add a thick velvet or lace choker, put your hair up into a ballerina bun with pearl or crystal studs to complete the look. Pair your top with a black bottom, so that the focal point od the look becomes the sweatshirt tank. Don't forget to add your bold lip; I prefer Rimmel London's Boudreaux, which is a deep burgendy lipstick, available at Target for only $4.99.
Another way to transition this look into the colder months of Autumn is by layering a faux fur jacket overtop of this tank. I own a black, grey and white faux fur coat that would look perfect paired with this tank. The key to pulling off this look is by making it appear effortless. To accomplish this, pair the look with a high waisted black pant, or a legging if your wardrobe is lacking a black pant. Pair with a pair of thigh high black heeled boots. I suggest hitting up Ego.co.uk if you are in need of a new pair this fall. Style your hair in two long plaits (boxer braids if you don't know what a plait is) and keep your lip neutral, I always choose a peach color when I'm in need of a neutral look. Add a thin choker and large hoop earrings to finish off the earrings. If you're not feeling the plaits, wear your hair half up, half down for this look.
Since it's early September, I styled this look with grey, distressed jeans that I found on clearance at Oldnavy for $2.00. I paired the look with a pair of lace up flats from Ego.co.uk, a thick velvet choker from Forever21.com and a velvet hat from Forever 21.
