Luxe Sweatshirt

I was skeptical when I first saw the luxe sweatshirt trend last fall, because in the past sweatshirts made me think only of early morning classes, weekend errand-running, or the gym.  I wasn't sure that I could get on board with a luxe version of this casual staple, but then I started to see versions with different fabrics and textures catch my eye.  When Conversation Pieces Boutique sent me this fall-perfect windowpane plaid version, I fell in love with the pattern and super soft chevron texture (you can see a close-up of the front texture in the last photo below).  My challenge to myself was to create a dressy outfit with this piece, and prove that a luxe sweatshirt can be more than just a casual weekend item.  This is what I came up with for an outfit pairing: a red fluted skirt, booties, a statement necklace, and red lips for date night.  I can also see myself pairing this luxe sweatshirt with skinnies, over-the-knee boots, and a leather jacket when the temperatures drop.
