Weekend Outfit Inspiration: Cozy Funnel Neck Sweater

For me, getting dressed for a weekend night out goes one of two ways. Sometimes, I can throw on an outfit, feel pretty good about, and be out the door in minutes. Other times, it’s a mad dash to find something acceptable that results in me being out of breath and my closet floor covered in clothes.

It’s all comes down to having enough options.

Today’s look is inspired by an outfit I wear regularly. It’s another jean alternative, that’s just as comfortable and appropriate for any casual get together on your calendar.

 

Weekend Outfit Inspiration: Cozy Funnel Neck Sweater

Sweater, $40  |  Leggings, $25  |  Boots, $130  |  Earrings, $34  |  Clutch, $50

Essentially this is just a cozy sweater and legging outfit, but with the right pieces and a statement boot, it’s actually quite chic.  When wearing less expensive pieces keeping the colors subtle and neutral will help elevate the look. This gray sweater by Old Navy is ideal since it’s long enough to pair with leggings but not oversizes.

For bottoms, these Vince Camuto Leggings have a bit more weight to them than traditional leggings so the look more like pants and less like active wear. They are on sale for $25 at Nordstrom Rack in limited sizes. For more sizes see here, and for plus size options see here,

Now for boots, you can wear a classic knee-high boot, or you can add a sexier element with one that goes over your knee.  Look for a slim and clean-lined boot, avoid one with hardware or embellishments – you won’t get as much wear out of them.  I like these at Nordstrom.

Because it’s a causal look, and the boots add an element of drama, I added a silver hoop – I always like a hoop and turtleneck. You can carry any black clutch or small bag you have.  This clutch is just a simple leather pouch that comes in a variety of colors. It’s especially nice to keep in a larger work bag to run to lunch or after work drinks.

  1. Meghan – love the new format and congrats on your upcoming new addition to the family!!

    For the look above, have you come across any over the knee (or even thigh high) flat boots you love?

  2. I just discovered your blog. I spent over an hour reading your past posts and love the practical advice. The thing is, though, I’m not a Mom with young children at home. All of my kids are grown and have kids of their own. I still found your advice relevant because it applies to all working women (and we all work even if we don’t gat paid for it).

    1. Hey Darlene! Thanks for the comment. Many of our readers have grown children, or very young kids at home and don’t go into an office every day, or are even retired. It’s more a matter of letting everyone know where I’m coming from to give some context. But I’m always happy to hear that our advice is universal.

  3. Just found you site a few weeks ago and can’t get enough of you. I am trying to read up on all you back posts. I love you post on where to spend and where to save. I am 67 semi retired but still want to look the part both in my corporate job and my life outside work. I try to keep my style classic which allows me to by quality pieces but don’t want to look frumpy and old fashioned. I can no longer do heels but try to buy flats that are a little bit interesting and funky. I have always loved fashion but now feel I want to pare down the quantity of cloths I have and go more for quality so loved you posts on how to wear one piece in different ways. Keep up the good work and I will keep reading your back posts hopefully to learn more ways to look chic and feel special.
    Any advice you can give me would be well received.
