I don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved big chunky knits paired with cut off denim shorts or a wool blazer casually draped over a slip dress. There is something about remixing pieces from different seasons that tells a perfect tale of style muse nonchalance we all want to emulate. Booties in the summer, sweaters with slides… it all adds up to simply good style.
Breaking it down
There are no rules…. It’s about balancing the silhouette as always. With this look, I’ve paired a chunky knit with a high waisted slim skirt and then I chose a pointy toe slide to elongate my legs (even though I’m wearing flats). These Marc Fisher slides have just the right amount of edge and feminine lines to take this look out of preppy territory and give it more of a modern minimalist feel which is what I prefer. So we have the cable knit sweater that’s as classic as they come and most definitely a cozy, cool weather staple. I’ve paired it with a throw back, button front denim skirt (I made it my own by lopping off a few inches and leaving the raw hem). For me this skirt is more of a spring and summer piece as it is a nice alternative to shorts, I think. Finally, a pair of pointy toe slides which I think work for all seasons except winter. There you have pieces from multiple seasons remixed for a transitional look that works beautiful for those in between days when we don’t know what the heck to wear.
A few other ideas
A few other ideas for such juxtaposition would include pairing a slip dress with booties and a cashmere pullover that can be tied around your waist as the day warms up. Also, a t shirt dress with OTK boots and a cardigan is a look I love for in between weather. Finally, I love pairing a camisole or a fitted t shirt with a great pair of jeans, sandals and a leather jacket on those days when temps are low in the morning and night but warm up mid day.
I hope this was helpful!
