How to Style This Target Mossimo Sweater 4 Ways

target

A good sweater can become your go-to-piece during these cold winter months. A sweater that is comfy, warm and can go with everything, what more can you ask for? So by now you should know I have an obsession with Target. It is a dangerous place for my wallet and I! I recently went on a Target run, for items that had nothing to do with clothes. But alas I can’t help but check out what they have. Luckily they were having a sale on their clothes (still are) in particular sweaters. I don’t really have enough pull over sweaters that I can throw on. So I made it my mission to find one during the great sale.

I was not disappointed, as I left the store with a piece that I’ve already worn more than once. The side tie pullover sweater is not only stylish but is veryyyyyyyy warm. It’s so warm in fact that I’ve worn it without a coat while leaving my house, in November! That alone tells me that the sweater was well made, making it worth the original price. Here are 4 ways I’ve styled the sweater.

 

1. For The Office

I’ve worn this exact outfit to work and loved it. The billowy sweater gets balanced out with slim straight legged pants. The sweater wouldn’t work with a billowy skirt as the massive amount on both the top and bottom half of my body would overwhelm my small frame. I would also pair it with a black or dark grey business pant to offset the light grey color of the sweater. You can also do a monochromatic look and pair the sweater with a similar shade of grey pant.

2. A Weekend Errand Run

Now some ladies choose to believe that “leggings are pants”  while others believe “leggings are not pants!” I’m usually on the latter side except for when it comes to this extremely warm sweater. If you do choose to pair the sweater with leggings I suggest a fleece lined pair like the ones I have on and a tall boot. Both combined with the sweater will keep you toasty. I don’t suggest a short boot, as a tall boot keeps you warmer.

3. Night Out

Don’t think you can wear a chunky sweater for a fun night out of drinks? Why not? For this look I paired the sweater with black moto jeans which adds a tougher feel to the soft sweater. Once again the type of pant you wear is key so go with a skinny jean, that doesn’t fight with the billowy top. Slip on a pair of killer pumps and your ready to turn heads!

4. Lunch get together

I’m an advocate for transitioning clothes into different seasons. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen me wear a mini skirt in the fall. The same can be done in the winter, just make sure to layer your leggings and tights! I wanted to give the look a more relaxed feel so a pair of Tim’s were a clear choice for me.

4 Ways to style Who What Wear’s bell sleeve top from Target

who what wear

Like every other person I’m obsessed with Target. I am particularly obsessed with their affordable fashion. Namely the Who What Wear collection, which by far is my favorite clothing line there. Although the new line A New Day is has some great work wear that I might be buying soon. Who What Wear at Target is  great for the office but I love the more casual pieces as well. I own a few pieces from previous collections and some like a black bomber have become staples.

On a recent trip in which Target was having (still is) a huge sale on clothes I exited Target with the grey lace bell sleeve ribbed crewneck top. Its important to note that I am not a huge fan of turtlenecks and hardly wear them so a crewneck is more up my alley. If you don’t like the feeling of a turtleneck go for the shorter crewneck, which has a less restrictive feel.

The top originally cost $27.99 but is on sale now for $19.59. What a steal! The top keeps me quite warm because the rib knit has a medium thickness to it. If the top didn’t have a good weight to it I might not have gotten it. But Who What Wear got it right in both the purpose of rib knit (durability and warmth) and style. I’ve worn the top for an ootd (outfit of the day) post on Instagram and many of you loved the top. So I figured I’d show you a few ways I’ve styled it.
