Fall Double Feature: Sweater Glamour

I hope you've been following my series in collaboration with Irene from Petite Plus, Meow!

We're discussing fall trends this week.  Today is officially the first day of fall, so hopefully you're starting to gear up for shorter days and cooler nights!

Sweater:  The Limited (Available here)
If you missed my post on wearing leather, you can check it out here.

When you're done reading my post, head on over to Petite Plus, Meow! or catch up with her on Facebook for all the details on how Irene is styling the trends.

Today, Irene and I are taking on the sweater trend!!

Pants:  The Limited (Similar here)
Sweaters were all over fall runways.  Oversized sweaters, capes, ponchos, cardigans...you name it, sweaters are a big trend for fall!
Shoes:  Prabal Gurung for Target
Today, I've styled my amethyst purple poncho-style sweater for a casual glam look that works for night or day.

Cuff:  Express
Floral lace-up heels and a pewter bag dress up the poncho, while black skinnies and a lace-trim tank help keep the overall look feeling streamlined.
Ring:  Earthbound Trading Company
Clutch:  c/o The Limited (old)
While I paired my sweater with trusty black, Irene gives her adorable red capelet a sophisticated spin with soft beige, tan, and ivory.  Paired with a floral dress and booties, Irene's capelet makes for a sweet and feminine fall look.

With sweaters being such a huge trend for fall, it's easier to find unique looking pieces outside of the cookie-cutter cardigans and pullovers we usually see.  You'll find plenty of basic sweaters to fill out your wardrobe, but expect to also see more interesting cuts, oversized fits, and gorgeous sweater coats.

I haven't always been a big fan of sweaters, but this fall, I'm starting to re-think this.  Now, how do I pry that capelet away from Irene? ;-)

Are you of a fan of sweaters?  Any sweater styles you plan to rock this fall and winter?


  1. I like your sweater here, Cassandra. Being petite, it can be a challenge trying to wear something oversized and not have it look like you're being consumed by the garment or that it overwhelms you. The balance you show here is very nice. I like the pants along with the sweater. I also like the sandals.


    1. Thanks John! I'm in agreement about the big sweaters. I'm a big fan of cozy, blanket-like sweaters in the fall, but they can be overwhelming. Slim pants help keep it balanced. :-)

  3. What size did you buy the sweater in....

    1. I bought an XL, but honestly, I think I should have went with a large in this one. It's a little big on me.

  4. Love the sweater! Looks warm and cozy. I'm a huge fan of sweaters for fall! Unfortunately I live in the SF Bay Area so it won't be cold enough for sweaters for a few more months.

    1. Thanks Lady Jessop! Yes, big and cozy is what I want from my sweaters! :-)
