20+ Fabulous Long Sweaters To Go With Leggings

I’m addicted to long sweaters right now.  Well, really anything that will go with a pair of leggings because leggings are my new favorite piece of clothing. They are comfortable, come in lots of colors, and versatile.  I don’t wear them 24/7, just 23/7. Just kidding. I wear leggings 2 or 3 days a week and I even wear them out of the house. Did you see my work from home outfit post?  I’ve learned that there are tops that look good with leggings and tops that don’t.  For example, a very short or tight top, doesn’t look good with leggings.   In my opinion, leggings should be worn just as you would wear tights.  This applies to little girls too. I am not a fan of seeing little girls wear a cute pair of leggings paired with a tight t-shirt.  Not cute.

I’ve been posting a lot of ‘fashion finds’ posts lately because I really do love clothes and accessories but I feel a little awkward about not posting selfies when I show you my favorite fashion finds. Right now I have a bit more of a belly than I would like (maybe that’s where the addiction to leggings and long sweaters comes in to play) and I am not confident enough to post selfies just yet. I hope to lose 10-15 pounds in the next few months and may share a few outfit selfies once I lost those few extra pounds but until then I’ll just show you the fashion finds that I love on gorgeous models! 🙂

Here are a few cute and very comfortable looking long sweaters that I love!

Fashion Finds: 5 Leather Detailed Sweaters For Ladies + 1 For a Little Girl

I was looking through my wardrobe yesterday as I attempted to organize my closet and it dawned on me that my clothes are pretty boring. My closet is full of solid colors, mostly black tops, jeans, and black leggings.  Fun, right?

I used to wear cute clothes.  Back when I was a size 4.  Pre-kids.

As I was organizing I tried to think of ways I can add fun, interesting clothes to my wardrobe without getting to risky.  I’m not a fan of patterns or bright colors but I do love leather.   I’m not ready to jump into a full leather piece though.

One way to jazz up a wardrobe is by including pieces with leather detail or trim.  It doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.  I found a few sweaters with faux leather detail that are under $100.  Not one to be left out of fashion-finds, my daughter spotted a purple long-sleeve cardigan with faux leather detail from about 10 feet away while I was searching Macys.com for pieces.   How cute is #6?

If you’re looking for a way to spice up your wardrobe, check out the sweaters below and search online stores like Nordstrom.com or Macys.com for “leather + sweater”, for example.
