Colorful, striped sweaters popped up as a style trend recently, and I couldn't wait to get on board that train. Because unlike many runway and street style trends, a rainbow sweater is pretty easy to incorporate into real life! I first wore it with jeans and red flats (here), and in today's outfit I took it to the next level by pairing it with a red coat and pink pants. Yes, it's a bit colorful and eclectic, but it's also totally wearable for a good number of practical occasions. High-end, meet reality. And it's looking pretty sweet.
