Sweater Dressing

There’s a new brand in town! The same group behind Cinderella have just brought European brand Mexx in. Hooray for us shopaholics! More choices for us! Since I know that I lot of you may still be unfamiliar with the brand, I figured I’d introduce it to you by styling not just 1 but 2 Mexx outfits. The theme for today’s outfits is sweater dressing. (Hindi masyadong giveaway ang title ko.) I wanted to show you how versatile sweaters are so here goes!

For my first outfit, I styled something a bit more casual and young. It’s something you can wear to school or to the mall with your friends. The striped cardigan I’m wearing is actually from the men’s section of Mexx. I wanted a cardigan that’s long and oversized so the men’s section was definitely the place to look.

So for example you wear this to school during the day and you have a small get-together with friends at night, you can simply take your cardigan off to lose the scholastic vibe and you’re good to go. If you look closely, the knit sweater I have on actually has a little sheen on it due to the metallic touches it has so it’s not your usual casual sweater.

So that’s my first outfit! From casual and preppy, let’s switch things up a bit for my 2nd look.

For the more mature women out there, here’s a simple but feminine look you can wear from day to night.

Sweaters aren’t always bulky and boyish. You can still show your womanly curves by choosing a sweater that’s lightweight. This way, it won’t look too bulky. Pair it with a soft and sexy skirt like this to show off your legs a bit.

Sweaters will forever be staples in my closet. They’re so easy to style and comfortable to wear. Mexx has a lot of sweaters for you to choose from, along with dressy blouses, sophisticated dresses, pants in burgundy, olive green, red and other yummy colors and bags that are fit for work and play.  Mexx is available at Alabang Town Center and soon to open at Shangri-la East Wing, SM Aura Premier and Glorietta.

    Looks like I have a new store to visit for my next trip there! Can’t waittttt! For someone who lives in a tropical country, it seems confusing for other people how much I adore sweaters, that’s why you always make me feel “normal” everytime you talk about loving sweaters too! Sweaters are comfy and they always have the nicest styles and designs, how can you not like them, right?

    “Sweaters aren’t alwaysYou can still show. . .” Miss, parang naputol ang first sentence..:)

    I have always fancied sweaters even before kaso, I alwasy have this belief na pang-taglamig lang ang mga yun. Until your blog came along…I love your ouffit..:) Nakaka-inlove lalo sa mga sweater…(sweater nlang ang ide-date ko as post-valentine date)..

    You are so pretty po talaga Miss…Pwedeng-pwede kang gawing role model ng kabataan…Just thinking..hehehehe

    Hi Camille,

    I love both outfits :)

    Btw, you may want to revisit this sentence from your post (2nd outfit)… “Sweaters aren’t alwaysYou can still show your womanly curves by choosing a sweater that’s lightweight. This way, it won’t look too bulky.”

    I love the second outfit! the color of the sweater is not so eye catching and looks very feminine .. :)

    I used to wonder why sweaters are in these days considering that our weather’s shifting gears and summer’s around the corner. But the outfits here are just adorable and look like you can wear them under extreme heat. I guess the trick is to buy something’s lightweight. :) Again, you’ve opened my eyes and had me rethink the general rules of fashion because of this blog. Keep up the “great” work Camille!
