On my trip to Target the other day, I did something I usually have the willpower to avoid – I took a stroll through the women’s clothing section. I’m definitely a person whose wardrobe is mixed with higher-quality timeless basics and cheaper trendier pieces. And I find that Target can be a great place to augment your closet with those inexpensive buys.
They had TONS of sweaters out – some a little on the heavy side for southern California. But the three I picked up will be perfect for our chilly mornings and evenings.
You can’t see it well in this picture, but the crocheted detail on the back is really pretty. I like how it’s mesh on the front and then has a more delicate lacy feel to the back. This is a pretty light sweater – perfect to throw on over a tank or even a long sleeved tee.
Xhilaration Juniors 3/4 Sleeve Sweater – $19.99
This is more like a poncho/cape, but it doesn’t have that boxy appearance when you put it on. It looks great with a pair of skinny jeans to balance the looser fit.
Merona Women’s Open Cardigan Sweater – $29.99
This picture doesn’t show the selling point of this sweater at all. On the back, there is a really pretty braided band that elevates it from just being a long cardigan. Also, the cut is different. You can kind of tell from the photo, but it almost has tails – it doesn’t cut straight across on the bottom. I’ll try to post a pic when I actually wear it so you can see the details better.
The great thing about these sweaters is that they all work with my favorite basic outfit – skinny jeans and riding boots! Throw one of these guys on top and you have an easy, comfortable, stylish look!
What’s your go-to favorite outfit base? Jeans, ballet flats, and a flowy top? Skinny jeans, pumps, and a tank?
