Any piece of clothing that I can find multiple reasons to wear, I know I will love. I need my clothes to be versatile and easy. I hate when I have to stare at something and think “How can I wear this?…When will I wear this?… Is this appropriate for this occasion?” If you agree with me, I found the PERFECT sweater for you that you need in your life.
Sweaters & Cardigans This Time of Year
I feel like I can never get enough sweaters and cardigans in my closet this time of year. I swear them NONSTOP. They are just so easy to throw on so you look put together. My only concern is that sometimes one cardigan or sweater can easily get overworn. I feel like I am wearing the same thing all the time. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to style a sweater in many ways? Well, I found that sweater for you!
How To Wear One Sweater Four Ways
Not every sweater can be worn four ways. I am lucky that I get to partner with Edie Boutique today, to share with you how one of their best-selling sweaters can be worn four different ways! Remember when I was saying I need multiple ways to wear something for it to be worth the investment? Well, that is why this sweater from Edie Boutique is worth the investment!
1. Short Shawl
Depending on how you put this sweater on, it can be short, and you will see later that it can also be long. I am mentioning the length that it falls on your back. Here you can see I am wearing it in the short version.
I would wear this sweater at this length in the Fall. Sweaters are good in the Fall, but I like them a little shorter since the temperatures can vary. Throw on a pair of skinny jeans and a turtleneck top like I have on here, and it is the perfect Fall look. You can even throw on some high heels to make it a fancier look to wear out with friends.
2. Short Vest
The vest is much more casual than the shawl. You can wear this vest in the Fall with skinny jeans and some other neutral colors to make it a chic Fall everyday look. This look would be perfect for a casual office or even to class (if you get dressed up like I did).
3. Long Shawl
You can see know how the shawl comes much longer in the back now! I love this sweater look for the winter. You can throw a knit turtleneck on, throw your hair up in a high bun with pearl earrings and have a chic look for a winter night out. You can see that the outfit ideas are endless with just this one sweater!
4. Long Vest
The long vest is another winter look, just a little more casual than the shawl long version. You can wear a patterned sweater under it, a crewneck sweater, a long sleeve, or basically any colored sweater that you own if you want to spice it up!
Introducing The Shawl-Vest by Look by M from Edie Boutique
This sweater can be found at Edie Boutique. Edie Boutique is a small family business (so I am extra excited to be partnering with them because my family also owns small businesses) that has 7 locations in the Chicagoland area.
The sweater has a nice, soft, thick material. It does not seem like one of those sweaters that you wear once and it falls apart. (Everything from Edie Boutique seems like SUCH nice quality and that means a lot coming from me because, traditionally, I am NOT a boutique shopper.)
The sweater is one size fits all. Crazy? It looked great on the workers in the store who are smaller than me and great on girls in the store who were bigger than me! I swear it will work on you.
You can buy this sweater for only $49.99! Wait, what? I basically get 4 sweaters for $49.99!? Yes. It is AMAZING! Normally one thick cardigan is about $49.99 and you can only wear that borning thing one way.
This sweater can be styled so many ways like I showed you. I definitely went with a more conservative vibe, but you can easily make this sweater look like a trendy piece (throw on a Gucci belt and jeans), a bohemian piece (with a whimsical long sleeve under), or a cozy piece (with joggers and a cozy long sleeve).
Should we talk colors? The color I am wearing is the top selling color, however, it comes in so many color options! It was hard for me to choose. I just thought the ivory would look nice all year round.
PST- this would make an AWESOME gift for a sister, Mom, friend, Mother-In-Law… anyone! You can pick one up in store in Naperville, Glen Elyn, Park Ridge, Lake Geneva, Valparaiso, Milwaukee, or Libertyville. If you can’t get into a store, you can order online here. They ship things out the same day you order!
The Accessories to Pair with A Sweater Four Ways
Edie Boutique also has the cutest accessories! When I stopped in the Naperville store to pick out my pieces to share with all of you, I grabbed multiple accessories to give as gifts. You can see that I am wearing a pair of their earrings. These are the lightest earrings I have ever worn. I love a statement earring but cannot stand when it pulls on my ear all night. You don’t have to worry about weight with these. From what I can remember, almost all of the earrings at Edie Boutique were light!
The purse (only $28!) is also MY FAVORITE. I don’t know which feature to highlight first…
…Okay the number of compartments! You can’t lose anything in this purse. There is a designated spot for everything. You can put keys and lipglosses in one pocket, your phone in the other. In the middle pocket can be your change, cash, and your cards fit in the slots.
The strap is long enough to be a crossbody, or you can shorten it to be a shoulder bag. Not happy with that? Okay! There is another strap so that it can be a wristlet.
The color options on this purse are also endless. I went with a cream color so that it matches everything, but this is another great gift idea! My mom already ordered herself one. This is great for a college girl too so we can keep track of everything when she goes out with friends.
