Pair it With: A Dress and Tote

Sweaters are made for layering. Top your striped sweater over a simple dress for a casual, but polished look. I love mixing subtle prints together and the polka dots with the stripe are a perfect combination for spring. Toss a cognac tote over your shoulder (I love this tote for it’s smaller compartments inside) and you’re ready to conquer the day. Boss girl status anyone?

Pair it With: Boyfriend Jeans and Jewelry

Complete the slouchy sweater look with some boyfriend jeans. I love the destroyed details on these jeans because it adds the perfect I-woke-up-like-this element to complete the outfit. Honestly, you’ll look effortless and on-trend at the same time. Accessorizing with some colorful jewelry adds a perfect pop of color for spring.

Pair it With: A Button-Down and Clean Denim

Remember how I said striped sweaters were made for layering? Wear your striped sweater over a button-down for the ultimate classy getup. Don’t forget to roll up the button up’s sleeves over the sweater to avoid clunky bunched up sleeves under your sweater. Pair with clean denim and you have the perfect outfit for Casual Friday in the office.
