How to Wear Sweaters With Skirts | Fall 2012

If You Want to Wear a French Bulldog Sweater, This Is the Way to Do It

When it comes to the quirkier kinds of sweater "personalities" — we're talking the French bulldog variety and not so much the colorful intarsia iterations — we're totally in support of flaunting a cute print. The caveat? Remember to style with care, subtlety, and neutral tones. Here's the thing: with a sweater like the one we're loving below, you have to offset it with mellow colors and classic accessories. And to prove our point, it's as if this street styler read our minds from head to toe. First, her beige miniskirt is a perfectly proportioned complement to her slouchier sweater silhouette. Then, she dressed to the season with opaque black tights, cool-girl ankle booties, and a taupe It bag, which all meshed well thanks to its low-key palette. If you're feeling her look — French bulldog sweater and all — we've got the styling breakdown below with our key pieces to shop.
