off the shoulder sweaters









Off the shoulder necklines have been one of the biggest trends this winter.  I have loved the off the shoulder sweaters and have, for some time, been trying to find a way to style them considering the facts that: 

1.  my bare, no tan shoulders are not the BEST at my age.
2.  it's COLD

I purchased this sweater (the one I am wearing) at Just Fab for $19.00.  And now it is $15.00. They will go fast!

It's over-sized drape cowl neckline and ribbing at sleeves and bottom make it a perfect specimen for my experiment.
I loved the rich wine color, thinking it would make an outstanding contrast with winter white.






Then.......I paired it with a winter white turtle neck sweater and coordinating corduroy pant.







It's all about taking a current trend and tweaking it to fit into your own realm of fashion.
I've got to go now.............I'm off to buy another "off the shoulder" sweater!

Turtle neck is from Eddie Bauer.  I have several in different colors and love them because I buy "tall" and they are nice and long:

“Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you.”
