Why You Need a Sleeveless Sweater

October 26, 2015

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Russ and I have been working on a master bedroom update and did a lot for it this weekend. I also had the opportunity to work with Jami of Photography by Jami Leavitt to shoot a couple blog looks. It’s always such a treat to hang out with her, much less work with her. If you are in the Oklahoma/Utah area, be sure to check her out.

Sleeveless sweaters have really become my fall essential. Today I am wearing my fringe accented sweater over a fun retro inspired blouse (great price) and flares. I’ve worn it alone here. Here’s why you need a sleeveless sweater:

  1. Sleeveless sweaters look good alone – seen here
  2. Sleeveless sweaters look great layered over a blouse – seen here and here
  3. Sleeveless sweaters are easy to layer over a dress – regular vest seen here
  4. Sleeveless sweaters are a good way to add interest to your outfit – seen here
  5. Sleeveless sweaters are perfect with you need extra warmth in the fall but not a coat. They also fit under a coat easily during the winter.

    I am also a big fan of sleeveless sweaters. Love how they create an interesting frame! I totally admire this whole outfit of yours! Great patterned blouse and love the flare denim! 🙂

    Your sleeveless sweater is fun, but I’m not convinced there is ever an occasion when you would wear the sleeveless sweater alone. If it’s warm enough to go sleeveless, it’s too warm for a sweater!

      I actually wore it this way (linked above) and loved it. Perfect for when temps are cooler at night and warmer in the day. It also fits easier alone under a jacket than a normal sweater. As you can see, I’m obsessed!

    Great bell bottoms! 🙂
