One A Shawl Sweater

One A Shawl SweaterThe devil is in the details, as this cozy topper quite clearly proves. Without its front horn closure, shawl collar, fabric buttons and softly rounded hem, it would be just another marled sweater - but thanks to all of those elements, it lets you achieve effortless chic in a matter of seconds. Throw it on with jeans and boots, or try it with brown pants for a cool, polished look. Also in black.

As a girl who loves her bling, there’s rarely a jewelry trend I won’t try on for size. Bib necklaces, embellished bangles, chandelier earrings, multi-layered necklaces, etc. — I have a handful of each entangled in a mess on my bedroom bureau! But despite my “try-anything” attitude, I definitely was a little skeptical upon hearing about the latest trend — fringe necklaces. I’m not a huge fan of fringed bags, and I definitely wasn’t lovin’ the whole western vest thing that popped up last year, so the idea of a fringe necklace didn’t sound like something I’d want displayed front and center upon my decolletage. But once I actually viewed a few examples, it didn’t take me long to convert! 

The fringed look gives a sparkly movement in a way that layered chains can’t quite capture, and I love how the look can easily go from casual to dressy. Instantly glam up your typical collared shirt with some shimmery silver fringe like this Haute Hippie necklace (or this more modest version from Arden B.), or go earthy with a layered stone fringe necklace like this one from Urban Outfitters! Of course, if you’re feeling really daring, this ombre one from Fred Flare incorporates some fall-friendly tie-dye into the mix as well.
