Metallic Ribbed Kimono Sweater
I was immediately drawn to this metallic cream ribbed kimono sweater when I spotted it at Anthropologie a couple weeks ago. I knew the relaxed, cozy style would be perfect for the winter months, but also transition well into spring as a versatile layering piece. The gold metallic thread woven throughout gave the sweater a slight shimmer and the ribbed weave was incredibly soft and warm. My biggest pet peeve when it comes to sweaters is the fact that many pill after their first wear, but after several wears I still have yet to notice any pilling or pulls. Now for the best part! This sweater is currently on sale for $52.46 for the next two days. Looking to add more color to your wardrobe? It is also available in a beautiful green and rust colors. According to reviews this “one size fits all” sweater is flattering on a wide range of sizes and heights. I was worried it might overwhelm my somewhat petite frame, but I found the fit to be flattering.
Fit Tip: I am 5’4 and 140ish pounds (+ or – depending on what day of the week it is 😉). My figure can be described as something between and hourglass and a pear shape. I typically wear a size small or 4 in tops and dresses and a size 28 or 6 in bottoms.
Kimono Sweater Outfit Ideas
Due to the relaxed vibe of the kimono sweater my first impulse was to pair it with boyfriend jeans. I can easily see myself replacing the long sleeved knit tunic with a black camisole for the same look during the warmer months. The leopard print belt and flats add visual interest to the otherwise basic outfit.
Sizing: Jeans are a size 27 and run large. Knit tunic is a size small and true to size. Kimono sweater is one size.
Skinny jeans are a great option if you want to create a slimmer figure flattering line. The sweater drapes beautifully and I appreciate the fact that is doesn’t add bulk to my hourglass shape with patch pockets. I chose to pair this outfit with gold flats to draw attention to the gold metallic thread in the sweater. The striped v-neck tunic is currently on sale for $19.49. It can easily be tucked into a pair of jeans or worn loose over leggings. The vented high-low hem completely covers your backside when worn untucked. The soft, modal knit is also available in a short sleeved tunic.
Sizing: V-neck tunic is a size small and true to size. Skinny jeans are size 28.
Looking Ahead to Spring
I can’t wait to wear the kimono sweater this spring over my warmer weather outfits. Here is a sneak peek of the high rise, wide-leg, cropped denim pants I recently invested in. Stay tuned to see how I’ll be styling this trendy pant for the spring and summer months.
Sizing: Belted, wide-leg jeans are size 6 petite.
