Tips on Trendtation by B* a La Moda.
Today's video is about how to create different looks using a maxi sweater.
Here is the sweater we will be playing with. I am going to make use of the different coloured squares on the sweater to create combinations.
An easy option is to combine it with tights like this or leggings or skinny jeans. These pink flats also work well as they go with some of the squares on the sweater. To further enhance the look I'll add this pink bag with a long strap and a long black scarf to lengthen the look. Here's the first look.
I will keep the same sweater and tights for this look. You can try adding another large thick item on top of the maxi sweater to create a cosy feel. I chose this thick cardigan. I'll add some accessories that will create a different look using the same sweater and tights. As the sweater is a little short, adding a long cardigan like this on top will make it feel less short and more comfortable. As I have this long cardigan on top this time I can go for high heels.
This time I have chosen some shorts. I will stay with the same tights as before to show that there is no need for you to spend money on new items. I will pull up the sweater and tuck it in to the shorts a bit. Now you can see the shorts better and the sweater also has more volume. These shoes go well with the colors on the sweater. Another simple but different look.
Now for a first time, 4 looks instead of 3, how lucky you are ;) I'll wear this grey dress under the sweater. You could choose any of your dresses that go well with the colours on the sweater. The look is a bit old fashioned, so I'll bring it up to date with this thin belt. Then I'll put out the sweater a little like this, to give the look a bit more style. The sweater is still large but a bit shorter thanks to the belt. Finally, these grey boots. What would work great with this look is a black bag and believe it or not I don't have a black bag. I've only got this mini bag which I'll have to use.
Remember that you can wear maxi sweaters throughout spring and summer when it gets a bit cold at night.
Until next time!
