Fashion Friday: Sweater Stockings and more!

Sweater Stockings and Boots

 

Sweater stockings are an important part of winter for me.  This year, I have three pairs: a cream pair, a chocolate brown pair, and a forest green pair.  I love them all to death and wear them fairly consistently.  What’s particularly wonderful about sweater stockings is that they serve many a purpose.  They are warm, they look great with cable-knit beanies, and so on.  They are also amazingly versatile, but one of my favourite outfits with sweater tights is the one I am explaining today.  So, you’ve got your sweater stockings.  You’ve got a shirt of your choice (I personally usually go for button-ups, but really, pick your poison because lots of different kinds of tops look awesome with this outfit). I highly recommend boots as footwear, because most of the time they really pull together a look, especially if they are in a neutral hue.  There are some great, inexpensive boots at Modcloth, and Wellies are cute English staple. Now, the high-waisted shorts:

To wear over your stockings

 

High-waisted shorts were very in this summer, and they can be very in this winter, too, with a simple bit of layering!  I just cannot tell you how awesome sweater stockings look with high-waisted shorts.  They are too cool.

Now, you have your basic outfit: stockings, blouse, shorts.  Time to accessorize!  Cable-knit sweaters look so fab (especially w/button-up shorts) with this outfit, especially thick ones.  You could also try adding pins or brooches to your outfit for pizzazz, and hats can be quite splendid.  A headband could also be cool!

I sincerely hope that, if you try out this outfit, it works out well for you (it did for me, and for this girl), and that you don’t end up looking like a trash bag.  Good luck!
