I styled a classic fisherman sweater from Aran Sweater Market with a leather miniskirt, knee high leather boots, and a cute tote bag. This look has a preppy schoolgirl feel to it. Shop the entire look below. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.
Aran Sweater Market
Aran Sweater Market sent me this beautiful 100% merino wool sweater and I am absolutely in love with it. I picked the loden color, which is a really vibrant green. I never knew how great a sweater could be until I got this one. It is under $200, which is a steal for this kind of soft knit sweater. Sometimes you can see a sweater like this on Shopbop or Net-A-Porter and it will cost at least $500. The worst part is that the fabric blend of the sweater will be partially synthetic or some scratchy type of wool. The sweater I am wearing is made in Ireland and the company has been making sweaters since 1892. They basically specialize in making these amazing fisherman sweaters for both men and women. I am wearing a size small if you are interested in purchasing. They do have a great sizing chart if you know your measurements. You can snag the sweater here. The sweater came just in time since it has gotten a lot colder in Denver. It keeps me very warm.
I styled my entire look around the sweater and I guess you could say I went for a classic schoolgirl look with a preppy feel. I wore the sweater with this amazing paisley embossed Alexander Wang leather skirt. I snagged this skirt at the end of summer and it is definitely a high quality and very nice skirt. My boyfriend even loved it and he always tells me I have too many leather skirts. I think the paisley print makes this skirt stand out from all the other leather skirts. The skirt is slightly thicker, but it doesn't add bulk or pounds to the body. It is also a decent length and not too short. If you have any sizing questions about this skirt you can always send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to let you know what size I am wearing. The skirt is also available in white here.
I wore my Prada knee high boots yet again. I told you these boots are versatile. You can see me wearing them here with leggings and here with skinny jeans. I can't wait to wear with opaque tights next. These boots were a great find when I was in Chicago last month with my boyfriend. I sure love that city. These boots are classic and I like that they don't have a logo or brand stamped all over them. They will definitely stand the test of time.
Last, but certainly not least, I wore my Saint Laurent baby tote bag. You can see how I styled it in the summer here with silver sequin brogues. I consider this bag to be a classic as well because it is black and a traditional shape. The designer stamping is quite tiny on the front so it doesn't take away from the look of the bag. I adore little bags like these because I think they suit my frame and you can wear them across your body. I also snagged this bag in pink and you can see how I styled that color here with a little white dress.
