Add glam to your basic sweaters this season…

While we don’t get to wear them nearly enough here in south Louisiana, I love grabbing a good chunky sweater and pairing it with my favorite denim. For everyday wear, a sweater alone certainly fits the bill. But, for a night out, I like to add a little glam to the mix. Now, glam doesn’t have to necessarily only mean shiny baubles and evening bags here, ladies. Today, I’m sharing a few ways to add a little life to your basic Monday-Friday sweater.

Here we go.

1. Add a fur accent.

I’ve always had a thing for fur in the winter months. It adds so much warmth, texture, and style. A little goes along way, and beyond the fur vest, my very favorite way to tie it in is with a stole. Remember those from way back when? Hey, anything that’s good enough for Ms. Monroe it’s good enough for me. Let’s bring back a little 50’s glamour, shall we?

An infinity scarf like this one or this one is also a great way to add a little fur texture to your sweaters. You’ll be surprised at just how much it dresses up your winter knits.

2. Go with bold or layered statement jewelry.

Whether it be something chunky and ornate, or a couple of varying length necklaces, adding a bit of drama to the neckline will also help to give that luxe feel.

I went with a bold monogram and a shorter druzy necklace here with this look. So “statement” jewelry doesn’t have to always conform to the traditional way most of us think of it. Besides, a statement piece is anything that strikes up a little conversation or a nice compliment and I can’t tell you the number of times this acrylic marble monogrammed piece has done just that for me!

3. Opt for leopard/animal print heels.

Nothing adds a sense of richness to a winter look like a great pair of leopard pumps, in my opinion. Find a pair you love and feel comfortable in and you’ll reach for them time and time again throughout the seasons. I found these a couple of years ago and at those times when no other shoe is working, I can always count on these to finish off just about any look.

Here are a few current leopard versions available:
