Styling tips:

Chunky pullover goes perfectly with body-hugging bottoms: skinny jeans, leather jeggings or pencil skirt.

Show off your feminine side with stacked bracelets, statement stilettos, mini skirt or–if the weather is good–bare legs.

Choose eye-catching accessories to give your knit sweater some”character”: tribal geometric clutch and antique bracelets convey bohemian chicness; oversized envelope clutch and leather skirt say urban sophistication; denim shirt and sneakers add a casual, laid-back vibe.

Gold tone jewelry is more fall/winter appropriate, also goes great with warm colors like mustard yellow, burgundy or orange.

How to recreate:

I have been waiting for Elin Kling for Marciano collection since she announced it. Hard to imagine how this carefree, edgy chic blogger designs for girly, bohemian Marciano line since the two are completely opposite. But the collaboration turned out to be quite attractive.

Among the 32 pieces she designed, I specifically adore these three: the mustard oversized sweater that I featured today, the Eridget booties that will complement my fall wardrobe and accompany me years, and the Carina chambray shirt that already sold out before I got my hands on it!

Below are three outfits based on the oversized sweater I adore. I love pairing chunky knit sweater with girly, flowy pleated skirt. Together they result an innocent, attractive look. Add more fall color using this burgundy wrap watch that I featured several times in my posts.

Chunky knit top and skinny leather bottom are meant to be together. The leather toughens up the soft cozy sweater. To continue the mixed style, add ultra sexy and feminine shoes and tribal printed clutch. The colors in the bag tie everything together. This look is great for women in their 20s to 40s.

 All the pieces in the last look are classic and timeless: from chambray shirt, aviator sunglasses to leather skirt and sleek pumps. I just love the mustard yellow and burgundy color combination, so rich and sophisticated.

Change the mini skirt into jeans or this year’s hot brocade ankle pants (or this pair), this look will work great on women in their 40s and beyond.
