Save Steal Splurge: The Embellished Sweater
If last year was the year of the graphic sweatshirt, this year, the trend is going glam. In lieu of cheeky slogans and fashion logos, designers are amping up the bling factor and giving the humble sweater and sweatshirt a major bedazzled makeover. Certain brands have always had crystal-studded knits in their lineup, including J. Crew and Prada, but the trend is spreading to contemporary and designer labels alike. Go big with an allover embellished look or just keep things a little more simple by opting for a sweater with a more focused outlook — whichever way you go, we suggest keeping the rest of your outfit pretty simple and letting your statement piece really shine.
