I purchased this sleeveless sweater over a year ago and I only wore it twice. I was hesitant to purchase it because it is sleeveless; I mean, how much use can a Wisconsin girl get out of a sleeveless sweater? But I found it wasn't the lack of sleeves that was the problem, but the length! It was simply too long! I couldn't wear it with a coat, because the sweater was longer than most of my coats. So I was limited to wearing it on warmer days when I could go sleeveless or just throw a long cardigan over it. I was about to donate the sweater when I saw Saumya's Post where she tucked a super long, yet thin, dress into a pair of jeans. "Hmmm", I wondered. "Could I try that with my sweater?"
Now, I'm not going to lie, it was more of a pain to use the restroom. I mean, it takes a while to tuck something this long in and make sure it's not bunched up in all the wrong places. BUT, it did work. The sweater is very thin, so I tucked it inside my leggings, then pulled it up just enough so there was no bunching below the coat. Because it's sleeveless, it fit comfortably underneath my faux leather jacket.
The leggings are actually ponte knit pants by Worthington...the only leggings I would ever wear in public without having my butt covered. They are very thick, and truly more like pants than leggings. These are old, but all of these are similar to what I am wearing.
I bought this faux leather jacket at CJBanks on clearance this year, but sadly it's no longer available. I already owned two shorter black moto jackets, but I wanted one with a longer length too to go with longer shirts or to cover my backside. For only $24.99, it was worth it!
If you read my Sleeveless Knit Duster post a few weeks ago, you would know belts are trending again and I couldn't be happier. I'm thrilled to blow the dust off of all my old belts and put them to use! This multi-grommet black and silver belt adds a lot of interest to a pretty colorless outfit.
To keep the silver theme going I wore this modern silver necklace. It actually came with a different shirt I purchased, but I wear it with other tops too!
I'm still loving my baker boy hat from Target. It gets more use than any other winter hat in my closet.
Because we have a lot of snow and ice on the ground, I've been wearing my tall, flat boots a lot lately (old). I carried my Liz Claiborne Elizabeth Tote to go with all the other black in my outfit.
And here are two other ways I've worn this long olive green sleeveless sweater.
With a long black cardigan:
And alone, with black pants and heels on a fall day.

That's such a great idea for this top, Amy!! I learned that kind of tucking tip from my mom when I was a kid, and I usually do that.ReplyDelete
But I also wear my sleeveless shirts like this over another long sleeve shirt to try to get some more mileage out of them!!
Have a great weekend!!
Thanks Jodie! I have not worn a shirt under this sweater vest yet. I tried it once, but I wasn't thrilled with the look. I'll have to give another try.Delete
This top looks great tucked in and out... the color is so pretty! I really like those leggings you have on as well, they look nice and thick. You look so cute with the hat on, too!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Carrie!Delete
The sweater looks really cute tucked in!ReplyDelete
Love the color of the shirt and it looks great both ways- tucked in and un-tucked. The leggings do look more like pants which is really nice and you get the same comfort. A really nice look!ReplyDelete
Thank you Elli!Delete
Glad you could find another way to wear this top! I like tucking dresses in for another way to wear them, although as you pointed out it's a pain untucking and tucking them in after bathroom breaks, haha! I tend to do it with shorter dresses.ReplyDelete
Hope that you are having a lovely weekend :) We are having a relaxing one, much needed after a hectic week!

Thanks Mica, I will have to try tucking in shorter dresses!Delete
It looks so cute! I love wearing sleeveless tops under long sleeve cardis and jackets. You totally rocked it!ReplyDelete
Amy, that's such a great idea! I love this sweater both ways, but I really think I like it untucked! I'm a fan of long sweaters over leggings, so I may be biased. I think it looks really stylish with the black long sweater over it. Have a great week and thanks for linking up!ReplyDelete
Thanks Julie! I like it untucked too but I needed another way to wear it as well.Delete
Amy, your hat is adorbale on you! I am thinking this is one hat i may be able to wear. I love the khaki sweater on you with the black.ReplyDelete
thanks for linking!
Thanks Jessica, you know, I think the popularity of this hat is that anyone can wear it. It's very flattering and easy to wear: everyone looks good in it!Delete
It's great that you found another way to wear the dress, and that it was inspired by another blogger! Love the baker boy hat, it really suits you. Thanks for linking up!ReplyDelete
Thanks Emma! I've been hearing that a lot about the hat...but it's such a great hat I think it looks great on everyone!Delete
