LBD Look: The Cable-Knit Sweater

little black dress with cable sweater

It was extremely cold this Sabbath. So cold that extreme measures and layers had to be taken to ensure my warmth. I had a totally different outfit in mind that morning, but once I found out what the temperature was (28 degrees Fahrenheit when I woke up, 36 when these photos were taken) I changed everything and started over. I actually believe in comfort over fashion, and I believe you can have both simultaneously. Plus, I like keeping all of my extremities.

Let me explain just how cold it was. It was so cold, that I went through all of my tights and decided that none of them were warm enough. I actually wore a pair of leggings with my dress and slid a pair of black socks underneath to make them look like tights. Nobody noticed. And if they did, I wouldn’t care.

I layered this warm cabled sweater over my little black dress to keep me warm and toasty. Would you believe that I got this sweater for just $2? Apparently even though temperatures are hovering around the low 30s, stores are flushing out their winter items right now to make room for their spring collections. Silly stores and their schedules.

Style Dare: Leg Warmers

Snow in Alabama? Everyone is confused

Leg warmers = The 80s. Everyone knows this. BUT with temperatures this winter hitting a record low, a pair of leggings can help to keep your little ankles nice and warm while adding a unique pop of color to your outfit.

This photo is from back in 2010 when I first knit the leg warmers.

Pro Tip: No leggings? No problem. Try chopping the sleeves off of an old baggy sweater. You weren’t wearing it anyway! (Admit it)

Go ahead and rock a pair of leg warmers. I dare you.

Pssssssssssst, hey you!

Oh great, you’re still reading. This is a new blog, and I’m really interested to know what you look for in a fashion blog, or what you thought about this one. What did you think of adding captions of the photos this time. Yes? No? Maybe so? The feedback would be reeally helpful and I’d appreciate it if you would take a moment to leave a short comment for me. Thanks in advance! 🙂 -Tyler
