Weekly Capsule 05.1: The Forgotten

One of my goals for the weekly capsules is trying to wear the pieces I had to exclude from my previous seasonal capsule because of the arbitrary limited numbers. Like this sweater, for example. I like the color and the shape, except when I wear it again after all this time, I realized why I didn’t put it into my capsule in the first place – a cowl-neck sweater is kind of awkward to style, isn’t it? I mean, it’s not a turtleneck, so it doesn’t provide coverage for your neck, but what can you do if your neck gets cold? A scarf with a cowl-neck sweater is like socks with sandals, it’s just… no (believe me, I’ve tried.)

So the best I can do is layer a button-up underneath it, like this, or maybe save it for days when I don’t have to wear a scarf. Which doesn’t seem likely this week, what with my recent sore throat and a cold snap just coming in. Any idea?

  1. This does look like a tough sweater to style, but that makes this outfit even more impressive, cause I LOVE it. Everything about this works perfectly.

    I have to say I completely agree with Rebecca–the neckline of that sweater may make it difficult to layer but somehow it works perfectly with that button up shirt. I love how the color stands out against the neutrals as well. Gorgeous!
