One trend that I've been loving this fall is the lace up front sweaters that we've been seeing all over trendy clothing sites as well as in mall store windows such as Express, Forever 21, and Guess. However, the reason I haven't gotten one for myself was because I couldn't justify purchasing another sweater considering I'm trying to simplify and "detox" my wardrobe. (Hint, hint: post coming soon.)
Recently, I was contacted by Amazon Fashion representative, Jay, of the store Joeoy and was offered a collaboration opportunity with them to write an article about their clothing in exchange for a free garment. This being said, obviously I'm not going to pass up cute free clothes and as soon as I saw this adorable rust color, lace up sweater, I knew it was my chance to hop on the bandwagon for this trend!
Rust & Ribbed Knit
The first thing I noticed about my new sweater from Amazon Fashion's Joeoy, was how soft the material was and the quality of craftsmanship. The sweater itself is made of rayon which would explain the softness of the fabric. However, don't let that full you because this sweater is also quite heavy, which helps keep you warm on chilly autumn nights. Lastly, the lace up detailing as well as the ribbed knit of this sweater make it the perfect choice for a laid back night out with friends or family.
The other thing I liked about the style of this sweater was it's fit and flare sleeves which is a very hot trend on the runway this season. The reason I feel it pairs so well with this look is because I feel it adds a touch of softness to the sweater looks wise, making it more playful opposed to the sexy lace up sweaters that are also popular this year.
Lastly to style this relaxed piece, I paired it with a pair of my favorite Levi's skinny jeans, some adorable polished Nine West flats, and some minimal makeup to keep my up my carefree vibe. Also, I have to mention my gorgeous wooden watch, compliments of JORD, went absolutely perfectly with this sweater. The rust color of this sweater just balanced so well with the gorgeous emerald face of my watch and the dark sandalwood body.
