A Casual, Chic Way to Wear a Shimmer Sweater

The holiday season is here, and even a little bit of sparkle, shimmer or shine can help put us in a festive mood. Today I’m excited to be collaborating with my wonderful blogger friend, Jo-Lynne Shane, to bring you two really cute, casual sparkle looks.

I was thinking that I am going to need a cute, casual party look that is relaxed and easy, so when I came across this sparkly sweater from Ann Taylor, I snapped it up.

I love the burnt rust color, which is sort of a brown-red, and the way the sweater is infused with this gorgeous metallic shimmer.

You can see the pretty gold threads up close here. I decided to play up that shimmer by wearing some of my favorite layered necklaces by Kendra Scott.

As you can see, I’ve paired this sweater up with these luxurious velvet jeans.  I picked these up last year at this same time. I think they work really well with the sweater and give my outfit some extra richness. I added some leopard shoes and a sexy leopard clutch to give my casual party look some extra oomph!

I bought this merlot jacket last year, and it has been a fantastic investment. I’m all for having at least one leather jacket in your wardrobe. It adds an edge to any outfit, and it’s so practical too.

Here’s the final shimmer sweater look, so relaxed but so cute for a get together with friends, dinner out, or just to feel more in the Christmas mood. To shop this look, click the links below.

    1. Hi Lori, Sure put a little leopard print under the tree! It’s such a hot trend this year and a nice way to add a sexy edge to an outfit! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi, Deborah! I love your tagline, “Tweak Your Chic”! This lurex sweater has just the right amount of sparkle. What a perfect outfit for the holidays – nothing is more fun than a colored moto jacket. I’m also digging the hit of leopard – well done and keep up the great outfits!

    1. Thanks Shannon, What I liked was the color of this sweater. It’s not brown, it’s not burgundy, it’s a cross and so unique with the gold threads running through. Glad you liked it! Cheers, Deborah
