I paired this soft grey turtleneck sweater over a knit black skirt. Since they both have a similar shape, the overall effect is kind of drape-y, and it looks really chic and creates a different silhouette from other more traditional skirt/sweater combinations.
For holiday parties/dressier events, I love taking everyday, chunky, comfortable sweaters and dressing them up for the night. This can easily be done by adding tights and a skirt (go for a tight skirt under a boxy sweater, or tuck it into a skater skirt to create the illusion of a smaller waist) or even just by swapping your regular leggings for a textured pair- I like leather- and throwing on a pair of heels. Voila! You're ready to go!
I included a pic of my hairstyle for the night. I just randomly put in a bunch of bobby pins in an attempt at a half-up hairdo but it ended up looking pretty good I think! I'm usually crap with hair so this is a big deal for me...
