When I first bought the yarn (The Plucky Knitter Plucky Sweater in “Chlorophyll”) for my Cape Cod last April, I had in mind a sweater for cool spring/summer nights. The gorgeous lime green just screams “spring” to me, and I was imagining pairing it with a white cami, white capri pants, and sandals.
But then I didn’t finish the sweater until right around Labor Day – just in time for fall! The cool fall weather has actually been perfect for this sweater, but I needed to reimagine how to style outfits around it. Inspired by seeing the musical “Wicked” on Broadway in early October, I realized exactly what I needed to pair with this sweater:
black shirt, black corduroy A-line skirt (handmade), grey tights, black boots
Boom! A fall ensemble.
What else would you pair with a lime green sweater to make it appropriate for fall or winter?
And how do you transition some of your favorite warm weather pieces into a more autumnal mode?
