A fisherman’s sweater looks so comfortable and warm for the winter.  I am not sure if you can justify a $299 purchase on something you will only wear a few times each year … this is exactly why we LOVE shopping at thrift stores!  You can try that occasional look for pennies on the dollar.

Start with determining your style!  Sometimes that is hard to do but if you go through Pinterest you can create look books, pin pictures of what you like to your own personal style board.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • What colors look best on you?
  • What shapes flatter your body?
  • What fits your lifestyle?
