Today's Everyday Fashion: The Novelty Sweater

Old Navy dog sweater with striped skirt and red accessories

I can't wait to wear this outfit when the weather cools down here in Florida! I've posted several times with this sweater (here and here) but I think this look is my favorite so far. (I've got on this Kohl's bra to counteract the slight sheerness of the fabric you can see in those posts.) Novelty sweaters have been popular for a couple years now, but there are still lots to choose from in stores. Is this a clothing item you already wear or would try?

Blue Spiegel sweater with Limited pink pants

All my life I was a v-neck girl. But then a few years ago I discovered the layering affect you could create with a crewneck top and a statement necklace and I was hooked. It's the perfect canvas to display a necklace on. Plus they come in the most yummy assortment of colors; I had way too much fun putting together the rainbow collage below. Crewneck sweaters for yourself: yea or nay?

Nordstrom cut out top and faux leather skirt

The main part of my outfit - top, skirt and necklace - looks so much like the inspiration photo! I think the shoes/purse could be substituted for lots of different options that could possibly be cuter though, like a black clutch, black shoes, or both. Also, I am a huge fan of cut out shirts, because even under a jacket in the winter you can still see the part that makes them fun. (Versus something with a ruffle shoulder, for example, being covered with a jacket!) How would you accessorize today's look?
