It’s Cashmere Sweater Time! Even Floridians Are Wearing Sweaters


Burgandy Cashmere Sweater


I put together this collage based around the burgundy cashmere sweater.  I chose ivory pants because there is something elegant about wearing beautifully fitted ivory pants in winter time.  Not only do they bring out the burgundy cashmere sweater, but they make the outfit pop.  I chose the Gucci multi=color oxford pump for two reasons.  First, the burgundy in the shoe matches the burgundy in the cashmere sweater and, second, the shoes are so unique that I just have to have them!  Gucci makes the best shoes – they always have!

For accessories, I picked the Ashley Pittman Link Necklace to sass up the cashmere sweater.  As beautiful as it is, even cashmere needs to be “glammed” up sometimes.  And finally for the handbag, who does it better than Balenciaga?  This particular Balenciaga handbag is a shopper bag that is medium in size, perfect for the dimensions of this outfit.

Where should one go in this outfit?  Obviously, it would make a great work outfit.  You could interview in this outfit, make a presentation or hold a meeting.  Other options could be to wear this outfit on a lunch date with a friend or meeting a client for coffee.  It is also a terrific weekend ensemble to wear to dinner with your significant other.  Regardless of your choice, the outfit is very versatile.

Although it is a simple ensemble, I think that it would look great when the thermometer drops!  All of these pieces were chosen from Neiman Marcus, but the outfit can be put together from any store.

Milder climates during the so-called winter months leaves one with this beautiful Diane von Fürstenberg jumpsuit as an option for so many occasions.  One could wear this jumpsuit to lunch with the ladies, shopping, or to various daytime meetings.  I also think it is a perfect island vacation outfit.  It can be worn on the airplane so that you arrive in style.  The jumpsuit is perfect for beachside romantic dinners  or daytime shopping excursions.  It is a very versatile piece that can be worn either in daytime or evening depending on the way its accessorized.

The accessories that I have chosen for the jumpsuit in the above collage are for an evening look.  For a daytime look, I would have chosen wedge shoes or flats and a more casual bag.

For the evening look, I selected the Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik pumps in neutral colors so as not to draw focus away from the jumpsuit. Instead, choose either of these pumps to complement the jumpsuit instead of taking away from its beauty.  I also chose two neutral evening bags or clutches.  I personally prefer the Bottega Veneta Snakeskin Knot Minauadiere because it has more visual interest.  Of course, either bag goes with either pair of shoes as all the accessories are neutrals.

This white jumpsuit is a perfect way to brighten your winter whether you live in a warmer climate, are visiting warmer temperatures, or are experiencing warmer temperature where you live.  It is a conversation piece that your friends, family, and maybe some strangers, will love!
