I haven’t gotten to do it in years because of work, vacation, etc., but I finally got to go shopping on the day after Christmas this year. I remember when I was younger how much people used to talk about all the amazing things they would find at after-Christmas sales, so I was really disappointed when I spent an entire day running around the city, only to buy one thing: this gold lamé sweater from Club Monaco. But it’s all about quality over quantity, right? And this sweater was definitely an amazing find.
The texture and cut of this piece are amazing, with the luxe gold fabric making me feel like I’m wrapped up in the chicest foil ever. The sweater itself isn’t a huge statement maker, but the way it shines catches everyone’s eye. The structured shoulders give it a polished look, and the dramatic slit in the back makes it a great layering piece. I threw it on over a basic black fit-and-flare dress, opaque black tights and my favorite black booties, and added in some black-and-gold accessories and red lips for a little more drama.
How do you like to wear your most luxe fabrics?
