Dress Up – Dress Down: Black and Beige Two-Tone Sweater

When I noticed this two-tone sweater on a mannequin, it was one of those moments. You know, the kind when you make an instant decision. Only one sweater left: fortunately, just my size and just my style! I love the dolman sleeves and contrasting V in beige.

First, I dressed it up with velvet cargo pants and leopard accessories for an elegant look. Velvet and faux fur add texture to this outfit.

Next time, I dressed it down with black jeans and a knitted beret for a casual look. Booties are faux suede with a knitted cuff.

This haunting melody echoes in my mind from my mother’s record collection. Nat King Cole–one of her favourites–the Autumn Leaves. The trees are barren now and Winter is knocking at the door.

This beautiful version by Natalie Cole

  4. The sweater is amazing on its own Carmen but is brought out even more with the velvet pants and accessory scarf and hat. You did dress it down well though in the next pics. I love the beret Madame! Winter is knocking a little harder here, we had flurries of snow earlier but we have been spoiled up to now by Minnesota standards. Have a nice week ahead Carmen, Terri xo.

    Looks beautiful Carmen, yes it gets colder and Winter is certainly coming, Christmas is almost here. So far we didn’t have it too cold, lucky. Your area looks great for outdoor walks in the fresh air- perfect for distant walks. Keep safe!
