on the cheap: cozy up to sweater season

{Editor’s Note: I don’t find you guys nearly enough bargains these days, do I? So, how about an entire post where everything is $100 or less? Leave it to Kristina, who is a seriously impressive bargain shopper, to bring all this style on the most meager budget. No one will ever, ever suspect what a steal that luxe cardigan was, I can assure you. And the rest of the styling? Spot on.}

Kristina ~ It’s sweater season! I’m a cold weather gal, so I look forward to cooler weather and unpacking my sweaters all summer long. Even if you’re the opposite and you’re already counting the days to spring, you’re sure to appreciate the easy, inviting warmth of this gorgeous faux-fur sweater from John & Jenn, especially when you check out that price tag.


Fur-Collar Knit Sweater, John & Jenn, $99

Throwing this on over a tee and skinny jeans for the weekend is a no-brainer. But if you wanted to take it a step further? A pair of wide-leg trousers in a trendy fall hue and a neutral silk blouse (no heavy fabrics!) will balance out the sweater’s chunky knit and relaxed fit. Check out these trousers from LOFT in lush plum for a bit of color (and you know I love that there are three hem lengths available – no tailor required!).


Marisa Trouser, LOFT, $70 / Silk Crepe Top, Lacoste, $61 / Elizabeth Booties, Kelly & Katie, $50 / Belt, Nine West, $21 / Lulu Snake Embossed Tote, Nordstrom, $42 /
Spade Studs, Kate Spade, $38 / Good As Gold Pendant, Kate Spade, $58

When it comes to shoes, you’ll want to keep the heel high with a wide-legged trouser. These faux suede booties are beyond cute, and I just love the zipper detail on the back. Best of all, they’ll keep the whole outfit a bit dressier and make it work-appropriate too! Accessorize with a basic black belt, a textured tote, and some simple (yet not boring) jewelry like these pieces from Kate Spade to keep the sweater in the spotlight, and presto! You’ll be snug, warm and stylish, all without breaking a sweat.
