one sweater four ways

Earlier this week, I took to Instagram Stories to ask y’all a few questions about Reels! It’s no secret that I’ve been having so much fun making these recently, and I wanted to get a feel for what you most enjoy when it comes to these short, snappy videos.

Turns out, requests were all over the board! Many of y’all are loving budget-friendly roundups (like Target and Zara) while others would love to see more small designers. There were lots of asks for more horsey reels (yay!) and wedding guest dress ideas, too.

But one request I got over and over again? Styling one piece multiple ways! Love that!

So today, I thought I would bring you a bit of inspiration surrounding one of my favorite closet staples… a navy and white striped sweater. I bought this one from J.Crew a couple of months ago, and have already worn it so many times. It’s truly a classic that I know I’ll get so much use out of!

(For sizing reference, I’m usually an XS but sized up one size to a S for a slightly more relaxed fit.)

Now, the great thing about these looks are you can make them work with any sweater… striped or not! So without further ado, I hope you enjoy this mew reel I’ll be posting to Instagram today.

  3. There is something magical about this sweater. It s one size fits all, and from the photos on Amazon, it doesn t seem like it would be much to look at. The shape is odd, and of course the lack of sizing almost turned me away from it but the reviews, they got me. This sweater looked great on every girl who posted a picture of herself in it. The beauty of it they were all different shapes and sizes, and it fit. So, this petite gal, took a chance and hit that buy it now button.
