As preppy as this sweater is, there’s something about it that always gives me slight 1920s sportswear sweater vibes. After a bit of staring, I think the elements that are giving me “1920s sportswear” are the boxy silhouette, mixed with the deep V-neck, mixed with the bold colorblocking.
Fun fact, this is actually a sweater from the guys department (with the buttons on the wrong side and everything). That certainly accounts for the lack of shaping, and the oversized, boxy, slouchy silhouette. But, unfortunately, it also means that every time I wear this sweater I always fumble for a bit with the buttons.
What I’m wearing…
Sweater: A green-blue two-color colorblock button up cardigan, with a deep V-neck, and a boxy, slouchy silhouette, made of 100% cotton from Hawkings McGill. (There’s no way I would have ever picked up this sweater for myself, but I love having it in my wardrobe!)
Camisole: A black camisole from H&M (this piece is so old it was made in Ukraine).
Jeans: High-waisted, flared, medium-blue, jeans from J. Crew, 87% cotton with 12% polyester, and 1% elastane. (And can we take a minute to notice how long they make my legs look, even at a not-very-elongating angle?!)
Shoes: Salome Buttero by Dr. Martens’
Accessories: Sunglasses from Ricky’s. Necklace from a Street Fair (or maybe Forever 21?). Rings from various places. Lip probably Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick from Maybelline, in the colorway Divine Wine (#695).
Never miss a look.
