January and February get cold in southeast Michigan, making it the perfect time of year break out the sweaters and rock a both comfy and cute look. Here, Kendra Bissig, the Grosse Point mom and stylist behind The Blonde Mom Style offers her tips on styling four different sweaters.
At a price point under $40, this sweater comes in 25+ colors and has a cut that flatters every figure. With a high-low hemline and size range of XS (4) to XL (22), you can’t go wrong with pairing this with your favorite slimline joggers or leggings. Get yours from the Anrabess store on Amazon.
Sometimes we just want to wrap ourselves in the biggest, bulkiest sweater. Don’t lose your waistline in a housecoat: I love to pair this with a thin V-neck or bodysuit, tucked into high-waisted skinny jeans. You can rent the Leopard Print Shania Cardigan by Cupcakes and Cashmere for $30 or buy it for $150.
This piece has a great weight and length to be front-tucked into a soft midi skirt or your favorite boyfriend jeans. Add a sock boot or pump, and your look is instantly elevated. The Annabelle floral printed sweater retails for $72 from fabrikstyle.com or in person at the fab’rik store, 123 W. Maple Road, Birmingham.
A balloon sleeve adds a soft statement to any sweater. It also redirects the eye from a larger waistline, making this a super choice for women who identify with that as a problem area. Wear it buttoned and tucked into a paper bag waist pant or unbutton it and pair with a silk cami and flare jeans. You can get the Jonathan Simkhai kinley open cable-knit puff-sleeve cardigan for $395 at neimanmarcus.com or look for it in the store in Troy.
