How to: Mix cute and edgy

I've had a soft spot for cute winter/Christmas sweaters this season. But I'm a bit wary of wearing festive prints that look like they could be worn by a five year old. So if I'm gonna pull off a cute sweater, I'd want to style it with a more edgy look to balance out the holiday cheer.


Playing with proportions is a great way to pull off a refined and cool look. Oversized sweaters are the way to go this season, which look great with a fitted skinny jean tucked into classic black ankle boots. Oversized is also the way to go for your accessories. Reach for a larger tote bag rather than a small purse (and this is also a lot more functional!). If your sweater isn't overly busy, pair it with a chunky necklace, which can take a bit of the attention off the cuteness of the sweater. And finally, adding a beanie is a great way to top off the look (get it?) with a cozy touch.


And there you go- 3 C's of winter wear. Cute, cozy, cool.
