A lot of people will argue that a LBD (Little Black Dress) is one of the only main staples you’ll ever need in your closet, however, when it comes the cool, chilly fall weather, the need for a LBS (Little – or Big – Black Sweater depending on your style) is just as important. There is nothing more versatile and comfortable than a black sweater, as style trendsetters Jessica Alba and Olivia Palermo prove in their own individual ways. So, how do you sweeten the deal of investing in a LBS? By purchasing one with details, of course. Even if it’s a subtle pattern or transparent sleeves, a little detail can go a long way. Here are my 3 choices, all which can be styled to your preference.
Splurge: KENZO Black Quilted Leather Sweater, $890
I love this sweater to dress up or down and it will pair perfectly with burgundy pants and ankle boots.
Spend: ZARA Sweater with Transparent Panel Sides, $54.90
For a more office to party look, this sweater embodies both sophistication and style. I love how the shoulders are transparent, giving a little edge to an otherwise plain black sweater.
Save: Forever 21 Black V-Neck Sweater, $17.80
I make it my mission to always have a sweater I can wear to the mall, to work or to a semi-dressy dinner out with friends and this V-neck option from Forever 21 works in any of those situations. Pair with statement jewelry for an effortless chic appeal.
