When Fall weather hits, a sweater and jeans is pretty much your default outfit, right? With a pair of boots, you're out the door in seconds flat! On the heels of Summer, I personally can't wait to layer up in my coziest crew necks, fitted turtlenecks, and oversize V-necks, but I do occasionally tire of my regular lineup. To spice things up in the sweater department (because sweaters can indeed be spicy), I'm looking to Fall's most wearable trends for a fresh formula, and one of my favorites is the leopard print trend, which I love in sweater form, paired back to denim. And how cute is this POPSUGAR Jacquard Slim Sweater ($37, originally $50) from the September collection? Answer: the cutest.
Now I know for some, leopard print can feel a bit bold, but the key is sticking to classic versions of the motif in neutral tones. I know, I know. Colorful animal prints are major for Fall, too. But we're here to talk about easy outfits, so you understand why I'm suggesting a more muted iteration of the trend, yes? Whether you're a leopard-print fanatic or are easing into the look, this affordable POPSUGAR sweater is ultraversatile; you can wear it on its own for early Fall with a pair of mules like our executive style director Dana Avidan Cohn did for a day at the office. Then, when Winter weather hits, you can layer it over a slimmer knit for extra warmth, swap your mules for boots, and top it off with a cute and cozy jacket. Easy-peasy.
