Every now and then an unplanned visit to the thrift store will lead me to a must have item. A funky necklace, perfectly worn denim, or designer vintage – all items I’ve found unexpectedly. This colorful sweater was purchased on a similar trip. It’s no secret that I am in serious need of new clothes since I can hardly fit anything in my closet. While I need to go shopping, the need to stay on budget is greater. Luckily thrift stores and re-sale shops offer great clothes at half the price!
Whether it’s denim, outerwear, or a pant suit, right now – women’s clothing is all about a loose fit. The fit of this sweater is just right, loose enough to be comfy but not appear sloppy. I was drawn to the sweater because of it’s bright colorful stripes; something I don’t have much of in my wardrobe. Soft velour ribbing means it feels absolutely amazing! All of this for the low price of $7 makes this a win win.
As for the rest of the look, I kept it simple. Black denim and black heels allow the sweater to stand alone. My quilted red cross-body is small enough not to clash with everything else. I added an extra pop of color with orange lipstick because, why not? Truth be told, I can’t wait to pair this with some leather in the fall. Here’s to warm spring weather and colorful clothes all season long!
