I’m sharing these a little out of order from the graphic above, but I liked how it looked best with the berry-colored top in the middle so that’s the way I kept it! But I’ll share the outfit details below starting with the most recent way I wore it, with this berry cami and grey jeans:
Next up is this brown & black outfit combo. I really love brown + black combinations but rarely remember to do them! And honestly, this was never something I did on my own prior to the Pinterest era. Growing up, mixing brown and black was just asking for the self-appointed fashion police to walk by you and make a siren sound, alerting everyone to your mismatched outfit crime.
Since this post is primarily about this sweater coat/cardigan, I guess I better touch on the sizing! It runs Small-XL and I’m wearing a Small here. It’s true to size for this line, although this line usually runs just a bit smaller than Express, LOFT etc. That said, I probably wouldn’t size up unless you are really concerned about it being too tight. This is from Pattyboutik, another familiar brand for my regular readers and one of my overall favorite brands for Amazon sweaters! It’s very warm, nicely made and holding up well over the years!
And last but not least, the first way I wore this sweater – just over two years ago! You know, while I don’t mind looking at this outfit, I don’t think I’d wear it like this again today. I tend to save my over-the-knee boots for dressier outfits these days, so I just can’t see pairing them with leggings and a cardigan right now. But the boots were new at the time so I wore them with everything! Haha!
On a separate note, I had a blast reading your comments last week on Cardigans vs. Jackets! That was such a fun discussion! For the past month or so I’ve been trying to bring an extra layering option with me when I take outfit photos, provided it makes sense for the outfit. It helps me get a bit of extra content for you/make my outfits applicable to a few more people without adding a lot of extra time to commitment, so it seems like a win-win. Plus, in some ways it’s almost easier because I don’t have to struggle with a decision of, “Which way do I want to complete this outfit? Cardigan or jacket?” I just do both! So on top of having three ways to wear this Sweatercoat Cardigan, I have a bonus Cardigan vs. Jacket comparison for you:
Just one little change of the layer and the outfit takes on a different tone. It’s a little dressier and probably a little edgier. With this particular jacket (still available), it really feels like a sweatshirt on the inside so it’s actually just as comfortable as the sweatercoat, though not quite as warm.
Truth be told, I think this last outfit is my very favorite of the bunch today! But that’s not surprising since I usually do prefer jackets to cardigans. I guess I saved the best for last, even though this has nothing to do with three ways to wear the sweatercoat cardigan! But I also wasn’t going to put this outfit in an entirely separate post since there was only one detail of difference, so I had to find a way to work it in here somehow!
