Being a long time Express shopper, I know what to expect every year once sweater season hits. There’s always the fitted v-neck, the London dolman, the basic cardi, the mesh dolman – every year they stick to their guns and pump out the staples. But this year I’m seeing some much needed change to an overdone line up. All the trends that have made their way into dresses and blouses have beautifully transitioned into their sweaters, and I have stay, I’m absolutely loving it! These are my top picks from their sweater collection, and they are far from basic (click the pics to shop!).
Reversible, Cold-shoulder, and Lace-up, OH MY!
(Two-Way Lace-Up Tunic Sweater $59.90)
Cold shoulders have been a must have throughout 2017, and although this sweater might be a walking contradiction, it is an amazing look! At this time of year, I try and stay away from chunky sweaters to avoid heat stroke by noon, so this is a great option when you want to start breaking out your sweaters but don’t want to roast. And the fact that it’s reversible means you’re going to get more bang for your buck 😉
Don’t be Basic!
(Wrap Front Balloon Sleeve Sweater $59.90)
I am a sucker for this loose draping and marled raglan material! This is a great piece to replace your boring, librarian-esque cardigans – wear it over a dress, tee, bralette – you name it! And that balloon ¾ sleeve gives it that extra detail that your basic cardi can’t ever provide.
All the Bells & Whistles
(Marled Tie Sleeve Hi-Lo Sweater $59.90)
Sleeve interest is hot right now, but this takes it a step further combining ties & a bell silhouette. The hi-lo hem also makes it perfect to pair with some high rise jean leggings for a casual look, or pair with a fitted pencil to create a cute and far from basic office look.
Make a Statement
(Marled Layered Cuff Cut-Out Sweater $59.90)
At first, I thought this was a bit overdone, but the more I looked at it, the more I fell in love! The great thing about all the detail in this sweater – the ruffled bell sleeves, the asymetrical cold shoulder – is that this is a statement piece, you don’t have to put much more effort in that throwing this on. Let this sweater speak for itself and don’t pile accessories on top of it. Style this with a high ponytail or top knot to draw the focus to the shoulder, and some black skinny jeans or a leather mini and tights, and this sweater moves from day to night effortlessly.
(Extreme Flute Sleeve Sweater $49.90)
That sleeve! This is a great feminine sweater to add to your wardrobe this Fall, and take you all the way through early Spring. A simple necklace or long earrings and jeans will complete this look in a manner of seconds.
