When I think about the holidays, I think about sparkle and lots more sparkle. I imagine gold glitter, silver glitter, Christmas lights, red tinsel, silver tinsel, gold tinsel, ALLZ THE TINSEL, and anything shiny and sparkly. I don’t know why, but during the holidays, I subconsciously wear a lot more sparkle in my day to day wardrobe. One easy way to bring more sparkle into your wardrobe is by finding a metallic sweater. No, ladies and gents, not a sparkly ugly Christmas sweater that lights up… but a sweater that includes maybe a bit more shine in the thread. These metallic knit sweaters add just the right amount of sparkle to your wardrobe without overdoing the shine factor. Here’s my favorite metallic sweater, I found in Spain! This sweater is thick, warm, and makes me feel chic without putting in too much effort.
Glasses: Warby Parker Preston
Metallic Sweater: Bought in Spain
Layered Shirt: Forever 21 (mine is in black)
Purse: Bought in Spain
Flats: Urban Outfitters (old, but here are similar / similar)
Watch: Timex (bought from the Men’s Watches in Target)
I usually pair my metallic sweater with a layering piece, either a long sleeve shirt underneath for a more casual look, or a buttoned shirt to add a little bit more texture. Throw on some skinny jeans for something more structured, or your favorite distressed denim and lipstick for cocktails with your girls. There’s no need to add too much jewelry to this piece, you’re already sparkling in metallic, and it’s best to keep the look simple and not too gaudy.
