Style tips by Karina - Personalised Style
How do you style a sweater you ask? You layer it with contrasting colours. Using a shirt and tank underneath gives dimension to the outfit and creates more styled details, and a well put together look. We have dressed this one up a little with the coated jeans, but you can wear it with your blue denim too for a more everyday style. By adding in a gorgeous oversized tote, it really completes the look. It’s really important to think about your entire outfit, not just the clothing!
When you're wearing jeans, it is really important to finish off the look by cuffing them up enough so that you are showing skin between your shoes and jeans. This way, it gives your outfit a really styled look, and your jeans don’t bunch up at the bottom. It also allows you to show off the curve of your ankle, making your legs appear taller.
