I had been on the hunt for the perfect red sweater ever since it started getting chilly last fall. I love the way it pops against a pair of distressed faded jeans and the complex color combination it creates with a camel coat (wow, that was a lot of "c's"). I took my sweet time finding the right one to buy and am quite pleased with this Shein cropped and high-neck option that I picked up for only $24.
I want to stop a moment and talk about big bulky sweaters. They're the comfiest, right? But often the fear that comes with them is looking overly...large. My tip for avoiding this? Tuck it in! The easiest way to prevent an oversize sweater from looking like maternity wear is simply casually tucking the front into your pants. I especially love pairing an oversize sweater with a fitted pair of high-waisted jeans to really create shape and definition. The effect is cool, effortless and modern.
While I initially though the red sweater may not serve me past Christmas, it actually has pretty good legs considering Valentine's Day is around the corner. I can also see this shade transitioning into Spring with a pair of denim shorts. It's not too late to grab one for your closet and get into the red zone.
