One Sweater, Three Ways.

One of my person requirements when buying new pieces is simple: I have to be able to wear it three different ways. I thought I'd put this mentality into motion with a new series, starting today with this great cheap-and-cheerful sweater from H&M. I show you three different ways to wear a piece-- ranging from basics to statement makers-- in ways that I would really recreate in real life. Here's what I've come up with for today:

The Night Out

While a sweater may seem like a casual only piece, I think knitwear can be elevated easily. Paired with a tailored skinny pant, classic nude heels, and a fun pop of colorful jewelry, a simple ribbed knit can move from a coffee run companion to ladies night out stunner.

The Every Day

For everyday, there's nothing better than a t-shirt and jeans. By replacing your tee with a cozy sweater and your typical jeans with a modern, distressed pair keeps the look from being anything but predictable. Pair it back with a fun patterned flat and a simple long necklace and you're good to go for pretty much anything!

The In Between

Finding the in between with style can be hard, as it's easy to go both full glam and and full pajamas. Anything inside that spectrum-- that's a challenge! To create the perfect "I tried just the right amount" outfit, pair your classic cream knit with a comfy ankle pant. The inseam length dresses up the look instantly, but when paired with a neutral, heeled ankle boot and a beautiful scarf, you're untouchable.

So, that's my three! I've linked as much as I can above, as well as including a bunch of great cream sweaters below, if you're in the market. That said-- what do you think? What would be your three?

Striped Intentions is laying on your bed, soaking in the sunlight. It's the shadows made by the blinds, lined up and down the sheets. It's wearing a striped shirt every day and not giving a damn. It's the constant search for "effortless chic"-- whatever that is-- and taking care of what you present to the world.
Too, Striped Intentions is a place to feel at home. No matter what you look like or feel like or do with your life, it's a space to appreciate life and all it's tiny details. It's having the best intentions with everything-- as striped with flaws as they may be.
