How I Wear: Metallic Sweater + Black Jeans

PhotobucketI couldn't possibly do a Holiday Lookbook series without including some sort of metallic, over-the-top, in-your-face piece. This gold spray-painted sweater is just that, but in an ultra-chic kind of way. To tone it down a bit, I chose to pair it with black skinnies and a blazer that's on the longer side, which makes the look more streamlined. Remember this trick here? The longer length also brings me in at the hips a bit, creating the illusion of smaller hips.   Photobucket  Photobucket This look would be ideal for a more casual outing this season. The red lips add that extra holiday-appropriate pop! Oh, and remember how I styled this same necklace (from my mom's vintage collection) with a brooch here? How's that for a two-in-one?
