You guys know that I live in Dubai, which means there is a barely a few weeks of chunky sweater weather for me to indulge in my obsession with knits. Nothing says snow like a white, cable knit garment with puffy sleeves. I remember hating the cold during my college years in Michigan, and specifically an oversized chunky sweater. The minute I was deprived of all things fall and winter, I started dreaming of the days when I can experience it again.
Don’t get me wrong, when the temperature is so low that you can’t feel the tips of your fingers and toes, it’s impossible to get away with an outfit like this. But since I am dreaming up this outfit, and I do live in Dubai, this look is totally plausible. If it’s too cold, all you have to do is add a warm coat and printed scarf. The point is, I buy more sweaters than I get the chance to wear, and I don’t feel bad about it either.
I wanted a basic and simple look this time so the chunky sweater would really stand out, but I think it would also look great with a suede mini skirt and over the knee boots. The great thing about sweaters is you can wear them out, while lounging at home, or even at the beach on those windier days. Have you stocked up on sweaters this year, and how do you style your favorite ones?

Don’t you just love a faux fur vest? It can instantaneously transform the simplest of outfits. I’ve had this one for a while and I love that it’s not too overwhelming, but I’m considering adding one of the longer vests to my wardrobe. They’re great investment pieces to have and are pretty easy to style. I’ve loved seeing them paired with striped dresses and over the knee boots. I sometimes find these vests a little bulky on me, but I’m learning to embrace the oversized winter looks. Since we are in the middle of the festive season I had to add some touches of red to my outfit, particularly the bright red lipstick.
When it comes to choosing the right pair of denim, I think comfort is so important as well as finding a flattering fit for your body type. It’s not often that I wear black jeans, but this pair is high-waisted and fits beautifully so I had no hesitations with styling it. My mood often changes when it comes to clothes and I like switching things up every so often. Since the faux fur vest is heather beige, I thought the black and white combo would be a good way to add a little edge to this look. I finally added my favorite leopard prints heels and trusty oversized reversible tote to tie it all together. Do you own a faux fur vest, and how do you like styling it? I’d love to hear what you think.
