I love the texture of the sweater because it feels slightly vintage...not to mention burgundy is the color of the season. I have a gold lame dress I think this sweater would be interesting with when paired with tough boots or evening shoes.
As any responsible CC would do, I started to think of other stylish ways I could work this sweater into my wardrobe prior to purchase. I came up with the following 2 outfits each under $100. (Jeans not included because everyone has a pair in their closet...technically I think I could say the same for black tights but I had some dough to spare in the second outfit.)
H&M Mirror Image Dress $24.95 // Forever21 Chunky Ribbed Knit Sweater $22.80 // GAP Opaque Tights in True Black $12.95 // GoJane Leopard Studded Trim Suede Flats $17.90 // n by Nicole Milled Mela Zipper Booties $40 // Tinley Road Rhinestone Paisley Earrings $18 // Forever21 Luxe Stone Necklace $9.80 // H&M 4-Pack Earring $3.95
Two of the items in my closet getting the most mileage are my [leopard flats] and [chunky rhinestone necklace]. They add the perfect edgy detail to an otherwise basic sweater and jeans. And how cute is this [earring set] for $4? Of course I love the spotted pair but peach and burgundy would make for an interesting color combo.
For a dressier look I would start with this funky dress. Mirror image prints such as this dress are a huge trend right now. I love a body con dress like this...not for me to wear on its own (please)...but layered under sweaters and jackets. I would wear this burgundy sweater over the dress with very necessary thick, black tights and either [black booties] or my black motorcycle boots circa last year. The finishing detail would be these [neon rhinestone earrings], the hottest trend in jewelry.
For $23, you cannot beat this sweater's style or versatility. I look forward to more outfits with this burgundy bargain.
