How to wear a cozy knit sweater

Who doesn’t want to wear a cozy knit sweater a ton of ways? Neutrals and browns are a favorite of mine at the moment because of the versatility. Free People is not a normal go-to store for my clients, or for myself but I really believe that you can find a few pieces everywhere. On my style research day, I decided to pick Free People and to my surprise, I found some pieces that were not overly boxy, oversized, or boho.


I decided to use the turtleneck sweater because the color and fit are probably similar to something you might already have in your closet. You can use this as inspiration to try wearing it with a new combo. At Free People, the shirts tend to fit better in a size smaller, I’m usually a XS or S so I opted for the XS sweater and it was comfortable. Not too fitted or too boxy.






First outfit I tried was with the brown faux leather short skirt which would also look great with long boots and tights, sneakers, or booties. This skirt does run smaller, I’m normally a 2 or 4 but in the skirt I was a size 6. It came in other colors but this chocolate brown was my favorite.






The second look is a distressed light denim and a taupe leather jacket. The best way to change up the look to make the jeans looks a bit more dressed up is with a jacket. I think it’s a great jacket for spring, fall, and winter because the color is light enough to wear with a variety of prints and lighter colors.

The shoes look BEAUTIFUL, they are a forest green faux snakeskin for only $88 but it was way too stiff to walk in. When you bend your leg, the top of the bootie cuts into your skin. I’d have to just stand still in these all day which is never going to happen. Too bad.
