Elevated Basics – The Sweater Edition

Is it me or does every sweater on the market look just like the one next to it? Almost all sweaters nowadays are the same shade and the same simple design and it’s getting a little boring.

Love of Mode Ruffle Sleeve Sweater

My closet is stuffed with monochrome clean designs sweaters with one or two stripped numbers in between. Monotony has taken over and it’s time for a change.

While looking for a piece to refresh my wardrobe, this gorgeous Endless Rose sweater caught my eye. Although monochrome, the unusual sleeves make it stand out. Made from the softest fabric, not only is it gorgeous, it’s also an absolute treat to wear. Love of Mode Ruffle Sleeve Sweater

Although the one I’m wearing quickly sold out, there’s a lot of other choices out there. I really like this Topshop ruffle jumper, this grey ruffle hem Asos sweater, this gorgeous Nasty Gal bell sleeve sweater or even this bold mixed pattern Nasty Gal stand out piece.

Sweater Endless Rose via Revolve sold out in white available in grey or similar in white or burgundy, bag Zara, jeans Gap, boots Daisy Street similar

Whether it’s an unusual design, a different color or a unique fabric, this winter, upgrade your basic sweaters. Get a piece or two that will stand out and will elevate your whole wardrobe. Not only will they refresh your look, they’ll also help you get out of the colder month fashion rut.

    You are right about that statement, stores are selling the same items from high end to high street to affordable ones. Maybe they have run out of ideas in terms of being creative with winter wear. By the way yours is a standout piece. Loved how you paired it with a light wash jean and gorgeous sling bag
