sweater + shirt


Photographer: Unknown*, for Madewell

I saw this picture after I woke up thinking I would wear my sweater like this -


I love the easy, timeless look of a sweater over a shirt, if the weather ever permits. In the end, I wore the shirt and carried the sweater with me - to be pulled on when I reach the chill of the office (strange that my office is set to the regulation 25 degrees Celsius but it is still cold enough to call for a sweater!).

*- Unbelievably difficult trying to find the name of the photographer, you wonder why Madewell doesn't make this sort of info more easily available.

Picture from tfs


I like this, both yours and the editorial.

I'm a new fan of sweater plus shirt look but I think it's so sophisticated and easy on the eye.

Lovely! I remember trying this combination but all my sweaters are too small to fit anything else inside. Her messy bun in the Madewell picture makes the outfit look so good.

Thta's a great picture. Her scruffy bun and the cut of her jeans really caught my eye.

I really like this combination; it's super casual but still qualifies as scruffy chic at it's most dressed down. I can see it looking great in an office, too, with a super polished high bun and lipstick.

Pret a Porter P: Thank you!

Angie: I've always liked the look, but I'd always thought most sweaters were too tight in the arm to try it with. Happily, this sweater has a looser fit!

K: I know what you mean! But I only recently learnt that it's easier if you slip the shirt into the sweater first before putting it on together, for a better fit. Worked for me...

Kate: I like her comfortable pose as well. It may be a catalogue but the whole thing feel so uncontrived. And I definitely liked the look of those jeans.

Adele: Agree, it's a very pulled together look but still throwaway at the same time.

Fashion Tidbits: Lucky you! If only I had cool enough weather to do this more.

If Jane: I'm sure you're longing for warmer weather by now!

Love it! Perfect combination in materials, textures & colors!

I'm really curious to see how the short sleeved sweater looks with a shirt underneath! Is the shirt also short sleeved?
lin said…
0000: it doesn't look it but the sleeves are elbow-length, cos the shoulder starts lower down. So the sweater kind of has a dolman sleeve, but a slight one.

I always like the makeup and hairstyling of the Madewell and Jcrew ladies. Clean and fresh faced with loosely styled hair. I wish they would detail more information on this and their in house photographers.

I can't wait to see how you wear your sweater. It's great and I love the look of a sweater over a shirt. I have started only purchasing 3/4 sleeves for this purpose.
