I’m more than excited to be trading in my anoraks for leather jackets come springtime, but before the winter season is over, there’s one sweater trend I’ll be living in – balloon sleeves.
Bell sleeves made a case for themselves this fall, and balloon sleeves are going strong this winter. There’s something about the billowy flow of a balloon sleeve knit that serves up the perfect amount of feminine with a side of bohemian.
I’m wearing Free People’s All Mine sweater in ivory (also in red, deep teal, black and cognac) – a color that makes up most of my winter wardrobe. I love its flowy style (I recommend sizing down one full size) and the v-neck adds the perfect touch without exposing too much skin that you need a cami underneath or a scarf to keep you warm.
My husband is responsible for these amazing Blank NYC jeans that I paired my sweater with (I’ve trained him well), which are the best friend to all of my chunky heels and chelsea boots – the cut-out was literally made for them! I’m also wearing one of my favorite pairs of booties (now under $40) which I love pairing with ivories and beiges. They add a softer touch than a hard black and up close have such a unique ‘bronzed’ detail.
