Hello gorgeous ladies,

Today's look is a nice combination of urban edge with a hint of glam. I really enjoy blending different styles into one because I think it makes the overall outfit more interesting and unique. When I came up with this look, it was actually a result of my indecisiveness of not knowing if I wanted to wear something dressy or casual. While the sweater is not entirely dressy, it does have a hint of glamour, due to the grey shimmer part of the pattern. At the same time, it also has a casual element because of the mesh detailing paired with the bold orange; this sweater was featured in my video, Is Orange the New Black? How to Wear Orange for Your Skin Toneby the way! The distressed light washed denim and the sneaker wedges helped enhance the urban and casual vibe I was also going for. Oh, and if you happen to like the sweater, many of DEX's pieces are on sale now, including this sweater and the one featured in the set below! 

The majority of the body shapes can wear the exact pairing I have on, with the exception of my apple shaped beauties. The only reason I wouldn't suggest this particular sweater is because of the huge neon orange x across the midsection, which can place some unwanted attention on a larger bust and stomach. I recreated a look that's more figure flattering, inspired by the one above. In the one I created, the sweater has two solid black panels on the sides of the stomach and a small grey section down the center, which will create an instant slimming effect. Since it lacks the orange color found within the sweater I chose to wear, I decided to use the purse as the pop of orange, to maintain the same color scheme.
