My Style: Chic Sweatshirt Edition

Today I'm styling mark's Effortless Edge Sweatshirt from the Fall Magalog collection! I would have loved to have done a beautiful outdoor shot with colorful Fall leaves in the background, etc. but Fall won't arrive in my Midwestern town for at least another month and a half. So it was either indoor shots or literally turning this top into a "sweat"shirt. 

Not exactly in the Fall spirit yet, I turned to Pinterest for a little chic sweatshirt inspiration! I wanted to share a few looks with this new top. It is pretty much a blank canvas for accessories, bottoms, and shoes. The neutral nude/oatmeal color is super easy to pair with different bottoms, colors, and prints. The side zipper detail and v-neck make it a little more special than your average active-wear type sweatshirt. 

For my first look I wanted to copy the model in the mark brochure. She kept it simple with white pants and brown riding boots. Since I don't have a metallic bag, I added a long goldtone necklace.

This next one is a bit of an experiment for me. I probably never would have thought of putting a sweatshirt with a skirt but these Pinterest ladies make it look so stylish. I'm well aware I'm not as glam as these girls but I wouldn't completely discount this look.

This next one is probably my fave! I love layering a collared top under another top especially a printed one. And unzipping the zipper gives you a little peek at the print underneath.

As for accessories the skies the limit! My boots are from Wal-mart and leoprard wedges are from Rue 21. My jewelry, headband, and gold flats are past and present items from Avon & mark!
