Lastly, my other trick is to curl my hair if I want the look to be even softer. I think curls help balance out all of the structure in the outfit. I didn’t do it with this outfit because I don’t mind appearing a little sharper. Especially when interviewing someone. Gotta put my tough face on! 😛
Got any other tricks for balancing out a button up + sweater?
And finally…some notes on some similar items:
I tried this plaid top from ON, which is like the lighter palette version of the one I’m wearing. It’s lightweight, so it’d be great for spring and summer. Also currently on sale! I’m usually S or M at Old Navy, and the small fit me perfectly.
I found a pullover sweater that’s only $8.90 and comes in 14 colors. FOURTEEN! Some are neutrals, a couple are bold like bright red and cobalt, and others are softer pastels like mint, pink, and yellow. The other two sweater options listed below are also on sale.
